In the Marvel Universe, every super hero seems to have it all. However, young Peter Parker (Tom Holland) proves that even Spider-Man isn’t perfect in Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming.
In this newest reboot of the Spider-Man franchise (now firmly part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe), Peter Parker returns to New York City to live with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei). He tries to return to his daily routine as a gawky high school student, but gets distracted by trying to prove to Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) that he’s more than a friendly neighborhood superhero.
Peter Parker crushes on the school’s hottest senior, Liz (Laura Harrier), but struggles to be cool. Even his best nerd friend, Ned (Jacob Batalon), tries to push him to talk to Liz.
Ned eventually freaks out when he finds out his best friend is Spider-Man. Peter is really just like any other awkward 15-year-old as he constantly battles with his ego and faces issues like asking Liz to the homecoming dance, or if he can stop the Vulture (Michael Keaton) from destroying the world.
There’s plenty of suspense in director Jon Watts’ movie Spider-Man: Homecoming but the film could’ve used some more memorable action scenes. Sure we saw Spider-Man trying to save his local bank, the Washington Monument, and the ferry, but that was about it. That doesn’t stop Spider-Man: Homecoming from being the much needed superhero film fans needed to see this summer, as it’s filled with lots of web-slinging adventures. Holland was the perfect choice to get this film swinging to number one on the box office charts over the weekend.
