Being one of Marvel’s biggest and most popular characters over the years, Spider-Man has had plenty of exposure throughout mass media. In addition to the comics, we have seen Spider-Man in multiple cartoon shows since the 1960s, live action tv show in the 1970s, and multiple iterations in the movies. We first saw him in Sam Rami’s Spider-Man trilogy in the early 2000s. Then Sony opted to reboot the character for the Amazing Spider-Man films. Unfortunately, the reboot was not as well received as Marvel Studios and the Marvel Cinematic Universe proved to have a great formula that is now pretty much the standard for superhero movies.
If ya can’t beat ‘em, partner with them! Sony and Marvel Studios made a partnership allowing Spider-Man to appear in the Marvel Studios films and he was first introduced in the MCU in Captain America: Civil War. The younger version of Peter Parker (Tom Holland) was one of the highlights for an already crowded (yet awesome) film. It was a no-brainer for Spider-Man to get his own solo film, and soon Spider-Man: Homecoming will hit theaters in a few weeks. Everyone’s waiting in anticipation to see if this new outing will be good.
Recently some members of the press were able to attend screenings for Spider-Man: Homecoming. Now that the social media embargo has been lifted, many are taking to Twitter to offer their thoughts on the film. Turns out, it’s pretty good!
Spider-Man Homecoming is a hilarious John Hughes-style high school movie disguised as a superhero film. Second best spidey film.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is a blast. It has an innocence that differentiates it from the other MCU movies but plenty of fun & spectacle too.
