I want to take a friend to watch the movie. He did not watch Avengers: Endgame yet.

Except for the obvious

that Spider-Man is alive again,

are there any other spoilers to Endgame? Since he already figured the first one out, is it okay to see Spider-Man: Far From Home first?

    How about the big one --- that a certain couple of characters DIE?

Spider-Man: Far From Home is the final film for Phase 3 and deals with the fallout of Avengers: Endgame as quite a major plot point, I would highly recommend watching Endgame beforehand.

For spoilers that are mentioned in Far From Home for Endgame the obvious major one that you haven't listed is:

Tony died and Peter is dealing with his grief over him.

On top of that we have:

  • All of Peter's friends are back - they were snapped
  • An in memorium video to the lost Avengers: Steve, Tony and Nat
  • That the Avengers won and beat Thanos and returned the world to "normal"
  • The five year gap

There are a few other minor references and "spoilers" but I think they are the main ones to be wary of.

FWIW before watching Far From Home I would recommend watching Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame and potentially Iron Man. These films are quite good for dealing with the Spider-Man storyline and the Peter/Tony relationship that is key to Far From Home. You might not fully understand what is going on in each of them without watching some other films but if you are only bothered about the Spider-Man side of things that shouldn't be 100% needed.

  • @RobertColumbia Hence why I said "lost" Avengers.

    Also the five year gap itself. Maybe I'm in the minority, but I remember that being a huge WTF moment for me personally in Endgame. I always thought they'd bring everyone back so that was no real surprise, but I'd absolutely expected a straight continuation of events with minimal time between the snap and the return, so that five years of people dealing with the pain was a big deal for me.

  • Not critical, but you won't understand the stinger if you haven't seen Captain Marvel.

Well, there's a huge major one, so major Tom Holland had to come out before one of the trailers and warn of spoilers for Endgame:

Tony stark is dead.

Then there's the fact that:

Not only Spider-Man is back from being snapped, but also Strange, Fury, Hill, and a few others.

Literally right out the gate of the movie (not even 5 minutes into it):

The "Blip" is also a big spoiler. We all knew it was going to happen, but the idea that everyone came back is technically a spoiler for Endgame. Plus it also showed roughly how they came back, which is also a spoiler.

Those are the big ones off the top of my head, but I should also mention another big one that @TheLethalCarrot's post reminded me of:

Several main Avengers are dead.

Also, very minor one in comparison, but technically still a spoiler:

Thor's still alive, but not on earth anymore.

So those are the big ones.

In short, for anyone who reads this, don't watch Spider-Man Far From Home if you haven't seen Endgame, or really, really, REALLY don't care about it being spoiled for you. Even still if you choose to watch this before Endgame, you'll still probably regret having it spoiled for you later.

  • FFH doesn’t tell us Thor is off Earth does it?

  • Yup. Maybe it only said he was "unreachable," but it was at the same time when Spider-Man asks Fury if he has anyone else.

    Pretty sure he's referred to as Off World in the scene where SpiderMan meets Mysterio for the first time

    @Chipster "Unreachable" was for Doctor Strange (not Mister Strange)...
