Jon Watts suggests Uncle Ben could play a role in MCU

The filmmaker also referenced an easter egg in Spider-Man: Far From Home indicating the existence of Uncle Ben

Published: 06th July 2019

Spider-Man: Far From Home director Jon Watts teased that Ben Parker may yet have a role to play in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

"Did you notice his initials on Peter’s suitcase,?" asked Watts asked in an interview.

Watts refers to one of new film's many Easter eggs, where Peter packs up his belongings for his school trip across Europe in a suitcase with the initials "BFP." The monogramming is not only a nod to Ben's presence, but also confirms his existence within this version of Spider-Man's story. 

"We never specifically say anything about him. So whether or not he’s around. Everything’s on the table, is how I like to say it," he added.

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.
