While promoting the release of the Spider-Man-Far From Home trailer, Jake Gyllenhaal took to Ellen and decided to drop an exclusive clip and it contained an interesting tidbit. The MCU is in EARTH-616!
Welcome To Earth-616
The clip in question contains an extended look at the scene that reveals Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio in the trailer and describes his Earth-833 origin in greater detail.
In the new footage Mysterio states, “There are multiple realities Peter. This is Earth dimension 616. I’m from Earth-833.”
If you read the Marvel Comics and follow Spider-Man then you’ll know that Earth-833 is the reality of Billy Braddock aka Spider UK.
In the first trailer, Peter Parker is still mourning over the loss of Tony Stark. Peter ignores Nick Fury’s calls and messages and leaves to Europe with his class mates. While in Europe Fury decided to pay Peter a visit and explains to him that the snap tore a hole in there dimension. Enter Quentin Beck explaining the different dimensions and also teasing a possible team up.
Now that we know that we are indeed dealing with different Mulitverses, the MCU going forward could go in any dimension. To the point there is no way Mysterio is teaming up with Spider-Man, it’s all a ploy.
Our friendly neighborhood Super Hero decides to join his best friends Ned, MJ, and the rest of the gang on a European vacation. However, Peter’s plan to leave super heroics behind for a few weeks are quickly scrapped when he begrudgingly agrees to help Nick Fury uncover the mystery of several elemental creature attacks, creating havoc across the continent!
