Unable to verify a line in a movie?

I have attempted to submit the below to correct blatantly incorrect info on the Spiderman: Far From Home page.. I have been told imdb staff can't verify it.

I'm curious, since it is a line FROM THE MOVIE, how this can be so. Whoever submitted the incorrect info claims "it is unlikely" yet the movie itself explains it. I'm confused about the "provide an explanation", as this field did not show up, and what would be expected here? Video clip of the scene? Link to the script?

Any insight in how to get the incorrect info replaced with the correct info appreciated. Thank you!

GoofEdit

Before
SPOILER: (at around 28 mins) At the beginning of the movie, Nick Fury tells Peter that's it's great to finally meet Spider-Man. However, they were both at Tony Stark's funeral at the end of Avengers: Endgame (2019) . It seems unlikely that they would not have met there. However, it is revealed in the post-credits scene that Fury was only Talos impersonating Fury, so it makes sense that Talos would slip up and accidentally say something other than what Fury would say in that situation. Incorrectly regarded as goof
After
(at around 28 mins) At the beginning of the movie, Nick Fury tells Peter that's it's great to finally meet Spider-Man. However, they were both at Tony Stark's funeral at the end of Avengers: Endgame (2019) . The very next line was "I saw you at the funeral but I didn't think it was the time to exchange numbers" making this the first meeting. Incorrectly regarded as goof

Previous info was a spoiler and irrelevant.

You should include the reference number here just in case a staff member wants to check or approve your edit.

You don't need to tick a box to provide an explanation in this case as the explanation field is already displayed and you already used it. However, it's possible that a more elaborate explanation or a link would help.

@Peter_pbn Thanks for the catch!

Contribution #211003-010704-282000 

If a link to the script helps,

https://subslikescript.com/movie/Spider-Man_Far_from_Home-6320628

and searching that for the scene in question:


I saw you at the funeral, but I didn't think that was a good time to exchange numbers.

That's why I'm so surprised that it was declined as "unable to verify".  If it is declined because of something I did wrong, ok. If it happened to be inaccurate, ok. But unable to verify? What method was used to attempt verification that showed alternate info?

Hi, @h_wilson:

I agree with your proposal to modify the goof; however, I think the SPOILER tag should remain... (Tony Stark's funeral...)

Hi h_wilson -

I have now approved your Goof Update for Spider-Man: Far from Home (2019) and included the SPOILER tag as suggested by ljdoncel.

The changes should be live on the site shortly.

Cheers!
