Where Does Spider-Man: Homecoming Rank in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Yesterday I wrote a review about Spider-Man: Homecoming and I absolutely loved the film but how does it stack up against the other Marvel films that have come before it? Well, this is what I’m going to find out and I hope you enjoy.

1. Captain America: The Winter Soldier

I loved Spider-Man: Homecoming, it was a pretty flawless movie. There’s something about The Winter Soldier, however, that really makes me happy. I watched this film four times in the movie theaters and now, three years after it came out, it still reigns supreme in terms of what Marvel can do. The storyline is simple yet complex, Robert Redford’s portrayal of Secretary Pierce was spot on, Bucky’s arc throughout the movie was one of the better plotlines in Marvel so far, and this was the first movie that Captain America really shined in.

Another reason why the movie was so good is its lack of heroes with super incredible abilities. Captain America, while he retains superhuman strength, speed, etc, he isn’t as powerful as someone like, say, Thor, or even Spider-Man for that matter. And then Black Widow is only a Shield agent, she’s not a superwoman, and that gives the movie a grit that most of the Marvel films don’t have. And Falcon is also a rather regular human besides the awesome exoskeleton. That’s why I love this movie. I’m waiting for the day to come for a Marvel film to finally dethrone this one but it still hasn’t happened yet.

2. Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man: Homecoming is undoubtedly the second best Marvel movie ever made. It’s funny, it’s original, and it’s simply a great film. The plot twists were shocking, the characters were fun and engaging, the storyline was impeccable, and it all led to Spider-Man officially becoming an Avenger, which is so exciting.

There are other great Marvel films like Doctor Strange, Captain America: Civil War, the first Guardians of the Galaxy, but this movie was so cute and perfect that there was no way I wasn’t going to rank this as the second best Marvel movie made so far.

So, this is where I rank Spider-Man: Homecoming in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I thank you for reading and I hope you have an absolutely beautiful day.

My Review of Spider-Man: Homecoming

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.

Why I’m Excited about Spider-Man: Homecoming

It’s been over a year since Spider-Man made his surprise debut in Captain America: Civil War. Tom Holland’s version of the infamous superhero had me very excited to see him again. I’m not even a fan of Spider-Man and I knew this was clearly the best version of the swinging hero. And then when I found out he was going to have his own movie this year I was even more excited. He was one of the best elements of Civil War so I had no doubt his movie would be great.

landscape_xlarge6

Now it’s coming out this week and early reviews are already saying it’s going to be a blast. Of course, I make my own judgment on movies but hearing that it is good as I thought it would be is reassuring. And you can’t beat a movie with Iron Man in it. Iron Man is one of my favorite superheroes and Tony Stark always brings the humor. I’m sure the scenes with him will be great and the action will be even greater. I’m also curious to see what the post-credit scenes will be. I’m hoping there will be something about either Avengers: Infinity War or possibly the future Spider-Man film.

Wonder Woman was easily the best DCEU movie so far. I enjoyed it thoroughly and I can’t wait to see it again at home. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was unfortunately not that great and was so unappealing that I didn’t even want to go see it. Spider-Man is almost here and I can’t wait to see where it ends up in the list of my favorite Marvel films. I’m guessing that it’ll be in the realm of either Guardians of the Galaxy or Doctor Strange. If it is I’m going to emerge from that movie theater very, very happy.

I’m excited to eventually write a review about it. Until then I hope you have a wonderful day and thank you for reading this post.

Spider Man Swings Into Action With A New Trailer

Three days ago Warner Bros. released a new trailer for their highly anticipated Justice League movie and it was pretty entertaining. DC Comics is known for their epic superheroes and it looks like Warner Bros. is going to make sure that continues to be the reputation of characters such as Batman or Wonder Woman. Marvel is the rival in this huge superhero genre and so of course they have released a new trailer for one of their most beloved characters debut film, Spider Man. That’ll definitely divert some attention from the incredible looking film DC Comics will be presenting later on this year. Here is the new trailer for Spider Man: Homecoming.

My Summary of this New Trailer:

First off, this trailer was way better than the first one. There was much more action which looks spectacular, there’s more Tony Stark which is always exciting, there’s more humor, and there’s more of the villainous Vulture. So on that note let me talk about these four elements of the trailer.

The Action

Marvel’s movies are known for some of their incredible action sequences. Take Captain America: Civil War for example. Part of the reason why I came away from that movie so pleased was the extraordinary airport battle between the Avengers. There were so many fascinating elements to that one sequence in the film that it alone made Civil War one of the most enjoyable blockbusters I’ve ever watched. I’m happy to say it looks like this Spider Man film will definitely deliver on the action scenes.

First of all those little spider drones Spider Man now has are so cool. I can’t wait to see what they can do. Secondly the main fight between Spider Man and The Vulture is going to be something to witness. That part where it showed the two fighting on a crashing plane looks exciting and there’s no doubt it’s going to be very loud in IMAX. Third, did you notice that in the second half of the trailer it shows Peter Parker fighting Vulture without his special Spider Man suit Tony Stark made him? It looks like after whatever happens with that boat incident Iron Man is going to have to take away his heroic privileges because of those Accords all superheroes are supposed to abide by. That means Peter Parker is going to have a lot more trouble facing Vulture when he’s obviously only able to wear his old suit.

I’m glad to see that this trailer didn’t show all of the plot points of this movie. All I know is a lot of trouble is about to hit New York City.

There’s More Iron Man!

I feel bad saying this because this is a movie that’s supposed to be all about the new Spider Man but my favorite part of this trailer was when it showed Iron man helping to push that boat back together. It was so cool it literally gave me chills. Yes I love Tom Holland’s version of Spider Man. He looks like what you’d imagine Peter Parker looking like, he’s funny, and he’s simply the perfect Spider Man but Iron Man is an amazing character. First of all I’ve been watching Iron Man since 2010 and throughout all of those years he’s always stolen the show. It’s just until recently when there have been stellar new heroes such as Black Panther or Doctor Strange that he’s lessened in the ranks of incredible Marvel characters. When I saw the new clips of Iron Man in this trailer I momentarily forgot about Spider Man. That’s a little worrying. I hope Tony Stark will be more of a secondary character that only shows up here and there because he will definitely slightly steal the spotlight from this new hero that I can’t wait to see a little further. And I’m really hoping that Spider Man will be the one to defeat Vulture because if he’s aided by Iron Man it’ll diminish his ability to be an independent superhero who can save the world just as easily as Captain America.

The Humor In This Spider Man Trailer Is Perfect

I love a trailer that can make me laugh, for the right reasons. I loved the humorous moments such as when it showed Spider Man swinging through a neighborhood and he splashed a whole bunch of people at a pool party. That was a perfect Spider Man move. And secondly I thought it was very amusing seeing his friend try on his mask. Those little clips remind us that this version of Peter Parker is just a teenager with some pretty awesome abilities. I think it’s going to be great having this new dynamic to the line of heroes in these films because everyone else, besides Scarlet Witch, is over the age of 28. That makes Peter extra special once he eventually joins the Avengers in their fight against baddies throughout the galaxy.

The Angry Vulture

Judging from this trailer Vulture is going to become part of that list of lackluster villains. Yes his suit is gorgeously frightening but besides that he seems to be the cliché villain with that repetitive speech most villains have. Everything was taken from me and so I’m going to take everything from you. What this villain’s true motive will be interesting to see, like is he an angry Hydra officer that has been plotting his revenge or is he just some crazed individual who wants to see superheroes perish by his hand? There’s also the question if he’s working alone or is there some other behind the scenes villain that they’re keeping for a surprise?

My Overall Opinion of this Trailer

I think it’s going to be another successful entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel has the formula and I’m thankful to see they’re not letting up on delivering enjoyable films to all us movie lovers. The main thing that excites me about this new movie is what the surprise of the movie will be because there’s always a surprise. Age of Ultron’s surprise was the debut of Vision. Ant-Man’s was having Falcon in the film. And Civil War’s surprise was Captain America dropping his shield at the end. That jaw dropping moment still has me wondering if he’ll reprise his role as Captain America or if he’ll have a different identity. I’m also excited to see the post-credit scenes because those are always fun to watch. After July 7 all of my questions will be answered.

Well thank you for reading for my post. It’s been fun writing about this new trailer and I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Have a beautiful day.

The Top Ten Suits of Marvel’s Superheroes

Every year since 2010 there has been at least one Marvel movie to grace the big screen and with each movie comes new superheroes with fresh, innovative suits that seem to get better than their predecessors. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe a.k.a MCU there are currently over twenty superheroes and each hero has either one suit or multiple versions of their iconic character. I’m going to list my ten favorite suits from the MCU.

My Top Ten Marvel Superheroes

Marvel has been spitting out great blockbusters for the last nine years. With those great films come an awesome array of amazing superheroes. After last year’s introduction to three new heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe a.k.a MCU my excitement to see more newcomers appear in later films has grown. Until that time these are my ten favorite Marvel superheroes.

10. Spider-Man

538cd3628a05e Spider-Man is awesome and with Tom Holland’s latest version of the iconic character this web slinging hero has become that much more enjoyable. I, however, am not a super fan of Spider-Man. Yes he is funny, his abilities are great, and seeing him alongside characters like Iron Man is goosebump inducing but I happen to like nine other superheroes more than him. I am still very excited for Spider-Man: Homecoming this July. I hope it’s good.

9. Ant-Man

54ad72b6084a0 When Ant-Man was coming out in 2015 I didn’t know if I was going to like this new superhero. The name Ant-Man sounded silly and didn’t make me overly excited. After watching the movie I was impressed with Ant-Man’s abilities but he still wasn’t Iron Man or Captain America caliber…until Captain America: Civil War. When he turned from Ant-Man into Giant-Man I about lost it. It was totally unexpected and definitely one of the highlights of the entire film. His role in Civil War might’ve been limited but after that jaw dropping moment he has deservedly risen in the ranks of cool superheroes.

8. Falcon

537baa87dbe40

Falcon was an awesome addition to the MCU. When Sam Wilson showed up in Captain America: The Winter Soldier I had no idea that he was going to become a superhero, let alone an Avenger. When he fought Ant-Man it was cool because his suit was different and better. His abilities in Civil War however were amazing. I loved his wings which could turn into a shield. How awesome is that! I also loved his drone, Red Wing. That was another nice addition to his character. Even though he still would’ve been my eighth favorite superhero without these great new abilities it definitely cemented him in the eighth spot.

7. Vision

537bc95e556b4

Vision is awesome. He is so ridiculously powerful he can pick up Thor’s hammer! Wow. Unfortunately he’s still trying to discover the depth of the power he wields from that destructive mind stone lodged in his forehead so he basically doesn’t do anything except pass through solid objects, shoot yellow lasers, and fly. I mean during the airport fight in Civil War he barely did anything. He was basically the referee of the dispute. He was there to make sure things didn’t get out of hand. That shows how cool he is because he doesn’t even have to have the best abilities in the world and he’s my seventh favorite superhero. I hope he’ll unlock a little more of his potential and do something really cool before he (and hopefully this doesn’t happen) comes to his demise at the hands of Thanos.

6. Scarlet Witch

537bc2375dfb9

Scarlet Witch is pretty cool. After Avengers: Age of Ultron I was excited to see a new female superhero join the Avengers ranks. Then I was even more excited that she would be in Civil War. She was great too. I loved that they displayed more of her abilities. It’s also really cool because she’s so powerful she can beat Vision which is extraordinary. I can’t wait to see what she’ll be up to in the next Avengers.

5. Black Widow

537ba41563b66

Black Widow is awesome. When she first showed up in Iron Man 2 I didn’t like her that much. Then after the first Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldier I was still wasn’t that impressed. She was, at the time, only a little cooler than Hawkeye. After Age of Ultron they finally started to reveal her background a little more and I was able to truly understand who she was. Then in Civil War you can really see how she’s become such a leader in the Avengers. She’s no longer the only female Avenger whose abilities are kind of boring and whose story is so-so. She is actually one of the toughest superheroes because she’s not like Captain America who has been scientifically enhanced. And she doesn’t have very impressive abilities like being able to shoot lasers or summon lightning. She only has her athletic skills, electric bracers, and her tiny black sticks to use and she can literally fight Ant-Man. That’s pretty awesome. I can’t wait to see her again in the next Avengers and I really hope that she gets her own movie soon. She deserves it.

4. Iron Man

55b6a28ef24fa.jpg

If you would’ve told me five years ago Iron Man would end up being my fourth favorite superhero I would’ve laughed. Iron Man is great but he has, surprisingly, diminished in awesomeness. While there were old characters getting cooler and great new characters appearing Iron Man has stayed the same since the very first Iron Man. Tony Stark has changed in the last nine years because he has faced a whole bunch of difficult challenges. Unfortunately as the list of Avengers grows larger Iron Man’s spot in the top drops further.

3. Captain America

537ba5b368b7d

I was first introduced to Captain America in the first Avengers which was not a great introduction. He was overly stern, didn’t fit in well with the team, and his outfit was horrendous. I didn’t like Captain America very much. In fact he was my least favorite Avenger. After The Winter Soldier my view of Steve Rogers was changed forever. He was actually a great leader and the most impressive thing about him is all he has is a shield and his scientifically enhanced endurance and strength. That’s why he rose to top three in the list. After the conflict he faced with Iron Man I can’t wait to see him in Avengers: Infinity War. Will he still be Captain America or will he be something different? I’ll have to wait and see.

2. Black Panther

537ba26276348

Black Panther is ridiculously cool. I had no knowledge of Black Panther until last year and I was so surprised. When I saw him on the trailers and commercials for Civil War I knew he was going to be awesome but he was even better than I expected. I still get excited every time I watch Civil War when he first attacks Bucky and he unfurls those deadly claws. That is an awesome part. He’s so cool that I can’t wait to see his standalone movie next year. I’m so excited to see his homeland of Wakanda and the people of that secluded country.

1. Doctor Strange

537ba85979532

I had no idea that after November 4th Doctor Strange would be my favorite superhero but he is. His powers are so amazing that I was stunned. I also loved that even though he could make mirror dimensions and could rewind time he still has his basic weapons like the fire lasso he used to fight those sorcerers. And not only is he cool but he has the best companion ever, the cloak. That cloak is so funny and great that it’s kind of a superhero of its own. Doctor Strange was so awesome that as I was watching the movie all I could think was how will he be with the Avengers? I mean can you imagine him floating in the air and while a great battle is happening around him with heroes like Captain America, Iron Man and The Hulk he’ll be up there making the world around him shift and bend in mind boggling ways. I’m so, so very happy that he’s going to be in Thor: Raganarok so I can get a taste of what him alongside The Avengers will be like. Until then I’ll enjoy watching him face off against Dormammu on Blu-Ray.

Well those are my ten favorite Marvel superheroes…for the moment. I can’t wait until May to watch Guardians of the Galaxy. Who knows. Maybe there’ll be another new hero from that movie who breaches my top ten list.
