WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Spider-Man: Far From Home in theaters everywhere.
A series of hi-res photos from Jon Watts' Spider-Man: Far From Home offer an in-depth look at the movie's dramatic nightmare sequence, as well as a clever nod to the Marvel Zombies comic book series.
While Tony Stark is officially dead following the events of Avengers: Endgame, the billionaire playboy's presence is still felt throughout Far From Home. After Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio is revealed to be the supersized sequel's big bad, Peter Parker tries to take on the iconic villain as he's bombarded by Quentin Beck's illusion technology. One of the movie's particularly chilling moments includes a zombie version of Iron Man rising from the grave.
Peter's journey through this dark world of Beck's design is considered one of Far From Home's standout visual moments. The VFX images, which were released by Marvel to MovieWeb, show off this sequence in all its glory.
Despite its brevity, the shot of Tony Stark's rotting corpse is sure to evoke memories of 2005's Marvel Zombies comic book series among longtime Marvel fans. Written by The Walking Dead's Robert Kirkman, Marvel Zombies centers around an alternate reality where just about everyone from the Avengers to the X-Men has been infected by a deadly virus. Kirkman's original story proved so popular, the Marvel Zombies brand has grown over the years and is even facing a reboot later this year.
Directed by 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.
