WandaVision and Spider-Man: Far From Home showed the effects of the Blip, but the timing was very different the second time around.
WandaVision has brought Marvel fans back to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the first time since 2019. Spider-Man: Far From Home. This year and a half gap may have made the Blip, the moment the Hulk resurrected the victims of Thanos’ snap, a distant memory for many. However, for the citizens of the MCU, the events of Avengers Endgame they are still recent, and WandaVision Episode 4, “We Interrupted This Show”, finally revealed what that event really was like.
Episode 4 begins with the resurrection of Monica Rambeau in a hospital when she reappears along with everyone else who was in the building five years ago. However, while this is a terrifying time to watch it unfold, By WandaVision The representation of the Blip differs greatly from that shown in Spider-Man: Far From Home.

In WandaVision, the victims of the Snap return the same way they disappeared, re-gathering from clouds of dust in a reversal of Infinity wardisintegrations. People gradually reappear, one by one, patients and visitors disoriented, and hospital staff overwhelmed. On the contrary, in Far from Home, A school news report shows footage from a basketball game in which the photographed Midtown students suddenly reappear all at once in flashes of light. Unfortunately, the school marching band had been playing during the Snap, leading to comical collisions between basketball players and band members at the sudden reappearance of everyone.
The real reason for this difference is probably just an oversight by Marvel Studios, either willfully or unintentionally. It makes sense that the priority for each scene is to set the appropriate tone for the story. Far from home offers a joyous look at Blip from the students’ perspective, while WandaVisionOn the other hand, it sets off Monica’s story with a sense of disorientation and tragedy.
However, given the importance of cross-property continuity in the MCU, there could be an in-universe explanation for these differences. One possibility comes down to simple geography. The Hulk takes photos at the Avengers facility in upstate New York, the same state as Peter Parker’s school. The location of the hospital Monica returns to is not confirmed, but it could be assumed that it is still based near her childhood home in Louisiana, as seen in Captain Marvel. If so, then Blip may have moved across the world, with the Hulk at his epicenter, meaning those closest to the Avengers facilities may have seen people return in a quick burst of energy, while that the more distant ones returned more gradually.
Applying this logic to the original Snap could also explain the pattern of disappearances of people. Bucky is the first character to disintegrate into Infinity war, just feet from where Thanos snapped his fingers, while Spider-Man is the last one, on the distant world of Titan. Of course, Infinity warThe post-credits scene shows Nick Fury and Maria Hill disappearing, but this scene could have taken place earlier than the one on Titan. In fact, the Snap moving around the world gradually could explain why it happened during the day in both Wakanda and the United States, two nations in very different time zones.
If geography weren’t involved, it may be that the power of the Infinity Stones is so difficult to control, especially for the Hulk, who is seen fighting much more than Thanos, that the effects are a bit varied and random. Either way, with things like the Falcon and the winter soldier Y Spider man 3 On the horizon, it looks like the MCU will continue to deal with the fallout from Endgame in the years to come.
