I’ve just recently watched Spider-Man: Homecoming and this is what I have to say about it. This movie. Was. Amazing!!! Marvel really outdid themselves with this Spider-Man film. I had seen nearly every trailer, I had seen all of the tv spots and advertisements, but I never imagined that this movie would be as good as it was.
Spider-Man is a fan favorite, and for good reason. He’s a nerdy kid who obtained outstanding abilities from a radioactive spider and ended up becoming an incredible superhero who saves his hometown from all sorts of diabolical villains. Spider-Man is so famous that even way before I knew anything about the difference between Marvel and DC Comics I knew who Spider-Man was.
There used to be this DVD I would watch, it was a cartoon called The Amazing Spider-Man, and I would watch it all of the time. There was Dr. Octopus, my favorite Spider-Man villain, the Green Goblin, and a whole bunch of other sinister villains. I loved it. I didn’t, at that time, know any other superheroes except for Superman and Batman. And even though I wanted to watch the actual Spider-Man movies I never could because there was just way too much suck facing in those films.
And then Sony just recently made two new Spider-Man films starring Andrew Garfield as the wall-climbing superhero and they weren’t that great. I only saw the second one with Jamie Foxx as the villain and while I did like Spider-Man the rest of the movie was terrible.
Then in 2016 Marvel partnered with Sony and a new Spider-Man was born.
