3. Spider-Man: Homecoming
Spider-Man: Homecoming is the first movie of Holland’s Spider-Man trilogy, and it’s awesome. It’s a great origin story and tone shift compared to the other Spider-Man trilogies with Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.
In Homecoming, Peter Parker is bitten by a genetically modified spider, which gives him super spider-like powers. Peter uses his power for good and tries to stop Vulture, played by Michael Keaton, who is an arms dealer with powers of his own.
We also see Peter’s friends and family introduced in the film, notably MJ (Zendaya), Ned (Jacob Batalon), and Aunt May (Marisa Tomei). Peter also develops his relationship and, dare I say, friendship with Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) and Tony Stark (We all know who plays Tony Stark, I don’t have to say Robert Downey, Jr, do I?).
This is a great origin story for Peter Parker, and it’s my favorite so far. I’m obviously a little nostalgic for Tobey Maguire as Spidey, but Holland’s trilogy is much lighter at first. It feels so much different and less emotionally charged and edgy than the other Spider-Man movies. It works well with Holland’s Peter Parker who has emotional range and perfect comedic timing for this role.
Up next is one of the biggest Marvel movies of all time!
