One of the things I love about the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the interconnectedness of it all. While you can watch each movie on its own (except for probably Infinity War and Endgame), it’s so much richer as a story and experience if you follow them all.
I’ve been reading comics since the mid 1980’s, and watching the movies and tv shows as they come along. Let’s just say I’ve seen a lot of them, and enjoyed most of them. All that said, and admitting I had a few reservations going in, I’m going to say Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse might be the best Spider-Man movie I’ve seen,
It’s really hard to review Avengers: Infinity War while meeting two criteria: 1) No Spoilers and 2) Not just typing WOW over and over again.
Spider-Man: Homecoming has been treated to positive reviews from almost everybody (92% of critics, 91% of users) and an average rating of 7.6 (which I think is a little low – I’m thinking 8.3) and man, is this better than The Amazing Spider-Man or what? Here’s just five things I loved about Spidey coming home to the MCU.
I’m a huge hero fan, and have been reading comics for decades. Yes, decades. So I like to think I’m at least a decent judge of hero movies. I’ll sum this up quickly and then go in to detail later. Spider-Man: Homecoming is fantastic. It’s a great addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and I’d say the best Spider-Man movie I’ve ever seen. And I liked the Tobey Maguire ones. At least the first one.
It’s looking more and more like we’re going to get a coming of age Spider-Man movie that all leads up to whether or not Peter Parker can fulfill his responsibilities as a superhero AND have a normal life. As in, take his dream girl to homecoming. Right? That’s what it looks like.
The new Champions (absolutely no relation to the 1970’s team) is continuing to come together. They have their membership established, as far as we know, but they are still working things out like who’s in charge, which comes up over and over this issue. Personally, I’d probably vote for Ms. Marvel, but who knows what’ll happen.
