For those who started watching Hollywood movies in the 90’s like me, Spider-Man was their first big super hero. Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker and Kirsten Dunst as MJ is etched in our minds.
The new Spider-Man had a perfect introduction in the last Captain America movie. This movie starts off from where the previous one left. Spiderman is in high school and goes through the usual teenage troubles. His friends and the school gang has been perfectly cast. There’s also a lot of Avenger cameos and high tech wizardry in to keep us entertained. In spite of all that, I felt that the ‘Spider-discovering-his-powers’ segment a huge miss. Tom Holland and the supporting cast do a great job but the Villain Vulture steals the show with his grounded talk and casual approach.
While most of the Avengers got their standalone movies, the poor spider has to have a filler movie. The movie is a fun watch but a little disappointing if you are a Spidey fan!
I hope he gets his chance in the next one!
