Does Spider-Man: Far From Home have a post credit scene? Two endings explained

Spider-Man: Far From Home contains two scenes after the credits - and they're both HUGE game-changers that set up phase 4 of the MCU.
Tom Holland's Peter Parker is about to swing back into our lives in Spider-Man: Far From Home and it's about time we spoke about those game-changing after credit scenes.
If you dare to cast your minds back to the traumatic events of Avengers: Endgame, you'll remember that there were no post credit scenes at the end of the film. (Well, there was the sound of Tony in the cave making his Iron Suit right at the end but that was it...)
Good news: Far From Home contains two post credit scenes and they're both integral to what's coming next in the MCU. There's one that will make you gasp in shock and one that will literally make you scream "OMG WHAT?!" at the top of your voice in the cinema.
If you haven't already guessed by the title of this headline, there will be MAJOR Far From Home spoilers in this article. Do not read ahead if you don't want to be spoiled. You've been warned!
Here are the Spider-Man: Far From Home post credits scenes explained.
Post credits scene 1: Just after the initial credit sequence.
The scene cuts straight back into Spider-Man and MJ on their “date”. He drops MJ off, she says she never wants to do "that" again (aka, flying around New York City clinging onto Spider-Man for dear life) and she turns to leave. He then hops up onto a lamp post where he sees a huge billboard flash with some breaking news.
It turns out that before he died, Mysterio had left a video message for the world to see, accusing Spider-Man of trying to murder him. He frames himself as the hero, claiming Spider-Man was the drone-controlling villain. The footage is faked, obviously.
J. Jonah Jameson (played by J K Simmons, who also played The Daily Bugle Editor-In-Chief in all three Tobey Maguire Spider-Man movies!!!) then flashes up on the screen, claiming Mysterio as the greatest superhero of all time. Spider-Man's true identity is then revealed in the video from Mysterio and Peter - and MJ - look on in horror.
What does it mean for Phase 4?
Given that the film plays around with the idea that Peter's Spider-Man will become Tony Stark's successor, the huge plot twist is a dark play on the end of Iron Man, when Tony revealed his superhero identity to the world. Of course, this one wasn't done voluntarily but it certainly sets up a lot of potential avenues for the next Spider-Man film to explore.
Beck's team, including those who escaped with hard drives and other information, will also likely still be at large. And there's no way Peter Parker - now a potential villain in the eyes of New York (and possibly the world) - is going to be able to carry on his Spider-Man duties as normal. So um, Miles Morales, anyone? Maybe? As a Spidey decoy? It's possible...
Post credit scene 2: At the very end of the main credits.
If you thought the first post-credit scene was a gag-worthy moment... the second one will blow your mind.
Nick Fury and Maria Hill are driving along together when they reveal their true selves… Surprise - they're Skrulls! And they've been Skrulls this entire time. Throughout the whole movie. The entire time. (Looks like we really did have cause for concern when we all thought Fury had been a Skrull at several points throughout the MCU.)
General Talos and his wife Soren have been posing as Nick and Maria, revealing that Fury hired the two of them to carry out the mission and make sure Peter got Tony's EDITH glasses. But if they're on earth, then where has Fury been in all of this? Well, that's the other twist. He’s actually been on "vacation" up in a space station with the Skrulls. Yes. Really. Can you believe?
What does it mean for Phase 4?
So after all this time, Fury is still in touch with the Skrulls. That could have a number of effects on what's to come and maybe even what we've already seen.
If Fury and Talos have been working together for the last 30 years, how many times have they switched places? Are there any more Skrulls on earth pretending to be S.H.I.E.L.D. agents? Who knows!?
The reintroduction of the Skrulls could also hint at the Secret Invasion storyline in the future. There were also mentions of Kree sleeper cells in Far From Home which could hint at a reintroduction of those guys too.
Now we know that Fury has them on speed dial, it could add several new layers of illusion to post-Endgame Avengers escapades. And also um, like, I guess we can't trust anyone?!
