Fans went wild when the word “multiverse” was first uttered in the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer. Minds went wild with the possibilities of what alternate universes could mean for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Personally, my first thought was immediately on the Spiderverse and how many more crossovers we could get.
While this plot point may or may not have been capitalized in Far From Home doesn’t actually matter. It turns out that we shouldn’t have been all that surprised — at all. Maybe it was our collective short-term memories but Marvel has been referencing the multiverse pretty consistently in past installments. So regardless of what happened in the newest Spider-Man, the multiverse exists and hopefully, it’ll play a bigger role in MCU’s phase 4.
After all, Marvel’s own Kevin Feige went out of his way to explicitly confirm it. When asked by Fandango whether the events of FFH meant the multiverse was still an elusive concept for Marvel fans he candidly replied: “No, it just means he [Mysterio] was full of shit. I mean, in Doctor Strange, we hear the Ancient One talk about the multiverse, so we’ve already established it as a thing.”
The multiverse was mentioned right upon the Ancient One meeting Stephen Strange as she asked him: “Who are you in this vast multiverse, Mr. Strange?” Then again when she explains to him that her power is “drawn from other dimensions of the multiverse.”

Now that we have definite confirmation, let those fan theories run wild!
How do you think the MCU can use the multiverse in future movies?
