Spider-Man: Far From Home Director on Why Vulture Doesn't Appear in the Movie

Spider-Man: Far From Home comes out next week and we're all pretty pumped to see it, especially with all the positive reviews coming out, calling it one of the best films to feature Spider-Man. Whether it's better than Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse remains to be seen (it won't be) but it is looking to be one of the better MCU films out there, especially since it's an epilogue to Avengers: Endgame.

However, due to wrapping up some plotlines from Endgame, Far From Home had to ignore some elements from Homecoming. This is why - minor spoilers - The Vulture and Scorpion don't make any appearances, even though they teased something big with them at the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Director Jon Watts has a more concrete reason as to why the characters didn't make an appearance and it makes a ton of sense from his perspective (via Digital Spy):

"We never really found the right moment to do something like that. It's always just about it being right for the story and not just some sort of shoehorned-in cameo. But I do love the idea that they're both still out there, and I like the idea that as we move forward with these films, we're building out this rich world that we can continually draw from."

It looks like there are plans to bring these two characters together eventually but not now. The fact that Watts didn't want to shoehorn in the two villains is great since films like Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 3 suffered from having too many characters and not having good plans to use them.

Spider-Man: Far From Home comes out next week on July 2.
