Following the positive first reactions last week, the first reviews for Spider-Man: Homecoming have arrived and it could be the best Spidey outing yet. Tom Holland’s first solo outing as Spider-Man lands in cinemas next week and sees him battle Michael Keaton’s Vulture, with help from Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) after he gifted him a new Spidey suit at the end of Captain America: Civil War.
We’ll have our thoughts on it soon but, for now, here’s a selection of the first reviews.
“Spider-Man: Homecoming, the web-slinger’s first solo movie under the Marvel Studios umbrella (but produced in conjunction with distributor Sony Pictures), is a sweet, witty, briskly-paced romp that captures everything that has made Peter Parker and his costumed alter ego such a lovable and enduring character for over half a century.”
“Yet coming after the two Andrew Garfield Spider-Man films, which were the definition of super-forgettable competence, the movie is just distinctive enough, in concept and execution, to connect and become a sizable hit. If so, it could prove a key transitional film in the greater cinematic universe of comic-book movies.”
