Spider-Man: Far From Home is crushing it in it’s first week at the box office. The epilogue to the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s ‘Infinity Saga’ and the prologue to Phase 4, the film is really resonating with fans. It is great fun and exactly what you would expect from a good Spider-Man movie. It also gives a unique perspective on the events that transpired in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. Whilst the official MCU name for the ‘snap’ is the ‘Decimation’, normal people in this world have their own name for it.
SLIGHT SPOILERS FOR SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME!
The world has taken to calling the tragic 5 year loss in time for those who fell victim to Thanos’ actions as ‘The Blip’. The name feels so perfect in the realm of Spider-Man. These characters all have their own quirk that seems just off from the rest of the MCU, and in a good way. So, the name ‘Blip’ really fits in with the aesthetic. It is similar to the ‘Peter-Tingle’ instead of ‘Spider-Sense’. It may not be the official name, but a quirky take from these characters.
Whether or not this name sticks as the name used throughout the entirety of the MCU remains to be seen. While it would fit along with the comedic side of Marvel, it feels a bit like a Spidey thing, something that will exist in this quasi-side universe that is the Sony/Marvel collaboration. Only time will tell, as Marvel is keeping the future under wraps, at least until San Diego Comic-Con when they show up at Hall H. Here’s hoping we get some information.
