MCU: Kevin Feige Explains the Difference Between 'The Snap' and 'The Blip'

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Spider-Man: Far From Home, in theaters now.

Spider-Man: Far From Home opened with a video montage created by Peter Parker's classmates that showed the effects of Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame's reality-altering finger snaps. In the video, we learned that the event became known as "The Blip" by denizens of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

However, fans had already sort of come up with their own name for the catastrophic event at the end of Infinity War: The Snap. According to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, there is room for both names in the MCU.

In an interview with Fandango, Feige was asked where 'The Blip' came from. "It came pretty fast," he replied. "We always referred to it as the Blip, and then the public started referring to it as the Snap. We think it's funny when high school kids just call this horrific, universe-changing event the Blip. We've narrowed it down to, the Snap is when everybody disappeared at the end of Infinity War. The Blip is when everybody returned at the end of Endgame… and that is how we have narrowed in on the definitions."

Director Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, JB Smoove, Jacob Batalon and Martin Starr, with Marisa Tomei and Jake Gyllenhaal and is in theaters now.
