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!

You get the point! Spider-Man: Homecoming looks to be yet another hit for the MCU as they continue to be on a roll for all of their Phase 3 movies. The new film hits theaters July 7, 2017.
