Multiverse?

Has to be right? I mean how else do you explain an era where the avengers save the world, the fantastic four are praised as stars, and spiderman is a hero but mutants are hated and shunned?

I think Into the Spider-verse is important dot com

There’s also the Cabnos paradox and Torchmonger question.  Multiverse ain’t solving those. 
Wow, I'm very concerned for Benny.  Being able to mimic Myron Medcalf's writing so closely implies an oncoming case of dementia.

Full reboot. We don't know what Tony snapped for, but maybe mutation could be part of his shield around the world. And the emergence of powered people in local schools could be perceived differently than the Avengers that are thousands of miles away (for most people). A few mutants could already exist secretly, which would allow maybe Logan & Professor X, or bring some in with the multiverse (Magneto & Deadpool), but I think a reboot would be best. It also would allow explanation of the Maximoffs by simply leaving them out of the X-canon.

Finally a film for the rest of us.

Ugh, I heard about this.  This only got traction because it was deemed news worthy that someone made it, not because people actually wanted to see this edited version.  It had essentially near zero downloads until the media made into something that people who were aghast at the notion started downloading to see what was done.

Society is better served ignoring these sort of things rather than blowing them up into something bigger than it should be, just for the sake of ratings, clicks, and viewers.

Giving idiots like this a platform is just stupid. Why is it news that there is some moron out there that is a bigot doing bigoted stuff?

Oddly enough, the NPR article mentioned this exact thing....while doing the opposite
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Wow was Spider-Man: Far From Home fun. Great light-hearted romp with the perfect balance of teen angst & action. Really needed that after Endgame. Such a fun movie.

Agree with this. Though that one trippy scene was a bit much for my 9yr old nephew in case anyone is considering bringing children they're easily scared.

I can see that. I also thought they did well with Mysterio in general. Made him both interesting and explainable in a way that fit the MCU. I like how they've revamped Spider-Man characters to fit in to modern storylines like him and Vulture.

Also...those post-credit scenes, holy crap. Those were two of the most consequential post-credit scenes so far, both in terms of Spider-Man's future and the MCU as a whole.
