Tom Holland's Spider-Man 3: Set Video References Avengers: Infinity War's Thanos Snap

Spider-Man 3 set photos have been dominating Twitter timelines in recent days. Fans have managed to learn a lot of information about the much anticipated Web-Slinger threequel, including a portion taking place during the holidays. We have seen looks at Tom Holland's Peter Parker surrounded by snow and Christmas decorations, meaning this could potentially be the MCU's second Christmas movie after 2013's Iron Man 3

A recent Instagram video from Atlanta Filming has given a look at a bulletin board on the set of Spider-Man 3 that features old and new posters telling us more about how people are responding to events in the MCU; the most notable being a freshly tacked poster featuring Mysterio, painting Jake Gyllenhaal's villain from Spider-Man: Far From Home in the light of a hero.

But Marvel fans would not stop there. Digging deeper into the bulletin board's Easter Eggs, fans have found more clues about how the citizens of the MCU have reacted to the biggest moment in the universe's history.

Blink and you may miss it, but if you look closely at Atlanta Filming's now-viral look at Spider-Man 3's on-set bulletin board, you will notice that some older posters in the background are reacting to "The Snap" that took place at the hands of Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War.  

The posters referencing the worldwide tragedy are obviously much older than those pointing to the events of Far From Home, as they have been tattered and covered up by the newer events of the MCU world. This would explain the sheer amount of "Missing" and "Reward" posters of people who were once dusted into nothing, but, as fans know, end up returning after the events of Avengers: Endgame.

Digging even deeper into this collage of props, we notice a recurring campaign supporting those who were dusted. "We Remember You" seems to be the slogan of the fallen as people mourned the loss of half of humanity.

And after one more passing of this detailed piece of the set, we notice that the controversial title of the event given by the students at the Midtown School of Science and Technology, "The Blip," isn't the only in-universe name for the wreckoning event. We see this signage refer to Thanos's destiny fulfilled as "The Snap", rather than "The Blip" as suggested in Spider-Man: Far From Home.

WHAT THIS MEANS

Fans have become conditioned to analyze every pixel of set footage we see leading up to such a big MCU project. This video has further confirmed the reaction of the general populous after audiences first heard the *clink* of the Infinity Gauntlet back in 2018. Much like in scenes featuring Paul Rudd's Scott Lang in Avengers: Endgame, the flooding of "Missing" posters along with the "We Remember You" slogan paints a devastating light on the reality of half of the world disappearing all at once. 

A new piece of information is the use of the phrase "The Snap" within the greater MCU. After Avengers: Infinity War, fans used a variety of common verbiage to describe what happened. "The Snap", "The Dusting" or "The Decimation" all made their rounds as front-runners for the event, only to be shot down as Betty Brandt announced it as "The Blip" in the Infinity Saga epilogue. 

Based on these set photos, the people of the Marvel Cinematic Universe seem to be finding trouble agreeing on a name, just like us.
