Then the new supporting players started to arrive, and things got even more exciting. This held true for Cobie Smulders' S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill and Samuel L. Jackson's eye-patch wearing Avengers creator Nick Fury, who were both dusted from existence in the film's after-credit scene. Jake Gyllenhaal is also all but confirmed to play Quentin Beck, better known as his evil, mind-bending alter-ego, Mysterio. Nick Fury back in Iron Man in 2008 and Smulders first appearing in 2012's MCU crossover The Avengers as Maria Hill, Fury's right-hand woman.
Not only will Jackson be gracing the silver screen in Far From Home, but he'll also be starring alongside Brie Larsen in the upcoming Captain Marvel; the period piece will feature a digitally de-aged Jackson, which will hopefully allow ample room for his nuanced talents to shine. From what we know so far the solution could come in the form of time travel, but we won't know much more until closer to the film.
The end of Infinity War has left moviegoers with a ton of questions, but it's safe to say that given how big of a role some of the heroes in the movie play in the MCU, Infinity War's sequel is expected to reveal how the heroes managed to undo everything that Thanos has done.
The character Captain Marvel was teased at the end of the film in the post-credits scene as a potential ace in the hole to defeat Thanos. And, of course, there's always a chance that he could also turn up in the still-untitled Avengers 4.
Looks like Samuel L. Jackson isn't finished with the Marvel Cinematic Universe just yet. Their involvement in the Spidey sequel has been rumored for the past few weeks with Jackson posting to Instagram from both London, England and Capri, Italy, both locations being used for the sequel.
