Ever since Spider-Man: Homecoming revealed that Tony Stark was selling Avengers Tower, fans have been curious to find out what would become of the skyscraper. It looks like we’re about to get our answer in Spider-Man: Far From Home, as the latest TV spot for the sequel might inadvertently give away the fact that someone else has bought it up.
Have a watch of the promo up above and about halfway through, you’ll see Spidey standing on a statue. Fans (credit to Ritwik chahan on Twitter) have realized that the webslinger is atop Grand Central Station. The real-life statue above the building’s clock was destroyed in The Avengers so, come Age of Ultron, it was replaced by a collection of human heroes such as police and firefighters. Having confirmed the location, you can see how different the structure behind Peter Parker is from the Avengers Tower.

So, who could’ve taken it over? Well, there’ve been a few theories rolling around since 2017. First is that it could be the Baxter Building, home of the Fantastic Four. Or, maybe it’s home to the offices of the Daily Bugle, Peter’s future workplace. Last but not least, perhaps it’s the HQ of Oscorp, the nefarious company owned by Norman Osborn. Seeing as this is a Spider-Man film, it has to be one of the latter two. And, going by those rumors about Osborn joining the MCU soon, the betting’s on it being Oscorp Tower from now on.
In fact, rumor has it that Osborn himself will be introduced in the movie’s post-credits scene, thereby setting him up as the franchise’s new big bad. It’s too early to comment on the accuracy of that intel, but it sounds like there’s going to be a big new presence in New York that’s unveiled in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
