Spider-man: Homecoming is Great

Danny Geier, Broadcast Journalism

 Spider-Man movies have been adapted many times. Over the weekend I watched Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017). I think Spider-Man: Homecoming is the best Spider-Man movie.

 Spider-Man: Homecoming (directed by Jon Watts) takes place in the MCU with other superheroes like Iron Man and Captain America. It is a fun movie that follows a teenage boy with spider super powers throughout high school. Peter Parker who is played by Tom Holland wants to prove himself that he has what it takes to join the avengers. Tony Stark who is Iron Man and played by Robert Downey Jr does not believe Peter has what it takes to join the avengers. This movie is a very fun movie with nothing too crazy. 

 This movie is also very interesting to watch because it takes a different approach to the character of Peter Parker. Like I said before, this movie takes place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe which no Spider-Man movie has done before. You see Spider-man interact with other heroes. Also, unlike Spider-Man (2002) and The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) this movie is not an origin story movie. They skip over Peter getting bit by the spider. Another difference between the other movie franchises is that it is the most teenage high school Spider-Man movie. In Spider-Man (2002) and The Amazing Spider Man (2012) you don’t really see him in high school a lot. Spider-Man Homecoming is based around his high school. You also see Peter struggle between being a superhero and a teenager and the decisions he has to make that comes with that. You can rent this movie on cable or stream it. 

All in all this is a good Spider-Man movie that’s very entertaining. I highly recommend this movie. It is a very fun and enjoyable movie that you can re-watch time and time again. Watch this movie and you won’t regret it.
