Marvel Movies/TV Spider-Man

Spider-Man Comes Home!


As far as Spider-Man goes, we have always been big fans of the Tobey Maguire movies.  Tobey really seemed to embody the essence of Peter Parker whereas the Andrew Garfield version had just a little too much cool about him to really fit the part for us.  Now comes Tom Holland’s turn… and if what we saw from him in Captain America: Civil War is any indication, he may quickly become our new favorite.  Holland was definitely was one of the highlights from that movie.  Our favorite line from the masked wall crawler in Civil War?  “Hey guys, you ever see that really old movie… Empire Strikes Back?  You know that part when they’re on the snow planet with that walker thingy?”  Yes, someone needs to make that mash-up…


Spider-Man: Homecoming finds Peter trying to find his place in the world with his newfound identity after his experience with the Avengers on the airfield.  Still feeling the excitement from that incident, he tries to return to his normal life under the tutelage of his new mentor, Tony Stark.  As he struggles with trying to prove that he is more than just the local friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, the Vulture emerges and threatens to upend everything and everyone he cares about.  What causes the Vulture to train his sights on Spidey is still unknown, but we are looking forward to seeing what Michael Keaton’s intensity brings to the character.  We are also curious to see what Spidey did to cause Stark to take his suit away.  However the movie turns out, we are just glad that a deal was worked out with Sony to allow Marvel a chance to showcase their most iconic hero, Spider-Man.

What are you most looking forward to in Spider-Man: Homecoming?
