•Aunt May lol
•Loved the Easter eggs
•First time Peter Parker has felt like an actual teenager
•Love MJ (so far) which is great because I’ve never been a fan in the past; comics or movie-wise
•omfg the end end credits shoot me in the face wth
Plot-wise this was a really fantastic movie. It didn’t have a massive plot, because obviously we needed to get to know the characters more in this film because we haven’t met a lot of them on the big screen before.
I loved how while the plot with The Vulture was meaningful to Peter’s storyline and really helped non-comic readers dive into the MCU even more than in previous films. With this movie I feel like not only did we really get to know Peter and how he thinks but we also got to understand how it feels to not be a super and just live a normal life.
-I HATE NED, FIGHT ME.
-THE VULTURE IS AMAZING. You guys don’t actually know this about me but I am totally that comic nerd that tries to guess the villains before the film information comes out and I actually guessed The Vulture, not gonna lie guys I was super proud of myself.
-Tom Holland’s Spidey is totally my favourite. I think he’s definitely the closest to the comics and as a comic reader I really appreciate it! Also I will definitely be following Tom Holland’s career because he seems awesome (he took his dog with him on the pres tour!) and this movie totally sold me on him as an actor.
-I definitely think that Zendaya’s character, Michelle was hyped up too much for this film, I mean I totally get it, she’s Zendaya. But for the amount of press she got compared to some of the other cast members, she really wasn’t in the movie for all that long. That being said, Michelle is amazing and I cannot wait to see more of her in the next film, especially because we barely not anything about her so far.
-The last Spider-Man reboot was only 2012 and yet Spider-Man: Homecoming felt -completely fresh.
-I loved how they incorporated the Spider-Man theme into the start Marvel cred, it was beautiful, I won’t lie to you guys, I shed a tear.
-PEPPER POTTS IS BACK. I don’t know if you can tell but I am excited about this, more so than I ever would have though I would be. I love Pepper in the comics, Paltrow was never my first choice to play her but damn am I glad she’s back.
-Happy Friggin’ Hogan. I love this man, he’s had the ring in his pocket since 2008 and he just wants Tony to appreciate him, can this man get any softer? I love him, and I really hope he’s in the next film, again, I didn’t realise how much I missed him until he came back.
-Speaking of Tony, the guy is officially a terrible mentor but he’s sort of not a total disaster at it? I really enjoyed his parts in the movie because we really got to see how much work he puts in behind the scenes, with the later movies I feel like we haven’t really seen that in him.
- I really enjoyed all the little easter eggs
- Pepper and Happy give me life
- The Vulture is an amazing villain
- Ned needs to leave, didn’t like him in the comics, don’t like him in the film.
- YES OH MY GOD, DUMB QUESTION PAST ME
- I can’t wait to start really following Tom Holland’s career, he has a really fun personality and I’ve enjoyed the movies I’ve seen him in so far, and I think he’s going pretty well so far.
- We finally got a Spidey movie with The Vulture so I’m excited to see which other villains we get to see in the future.
Have you guys seen the movie yet? Which spidey is your favourite?
