I absolutely adore Spider Man. In terms of fictional characters, he’s only surpassed by my love for Batman. Aside from Raimi’s third in the trilogy, I’ve really liked every film. Yep, even the Andrew Garfield ones.
Homecoming was not without its flaws, but unlike so many other people, I thought it was great. Tom Holland is the best to play the role, fight me if you don’t like it. Firstly, he actually looks the part. Finally we’ve got a Peter Parker who I can actually believe is a teenagerand not a grown man edging thirty. He’s a movie star, so obviously he is good looking, but not so much so that it distracts from what should be a fairly awkward and geeky character. Andrew Garfield had this problem, he seemed a bit too good looking and cool. Spider Man is also meant to be fun, wise cracking and full of cheesy jokes, and I think Tom Holland does es this better than his predecessors. I think him having a Stark suit with an AI to converse with helps on this front.
@DavidHillier I haven’t seen that one yet, because what I’m doing now is watching all of the films in the MCU in chronological order. Which is why I’m being somewhat disciplined and not watching this latest Spider Man, despite how much I want to.
