Wow this is a hard one to share my thoughts on without spoiling anything but I’ll do my best to summarise my thoughts on the first MCU movie since end game and one that had a lot to live up to based on how much I enjoyed homecoming. It also signals the end of the MCU Phase 3.
So the film picks up after End Game and is focussed around Peter and MJ primarily and their journey across Europe with their class on a trip. It’s picking up with the events from End Game (no spoilers remember, man this is hard), and Peter picking up more responsibility, which isn’t exactly what he has in mind right now. This film manages to combine the heaviness of the MCU at this point in time, the humour you loved from homecoming and relationships with his family and friends (I loved Happy Hogan) to make it one of my favourite MCU movies to date (maybe I’ll do an MCU ranked post??).
Initially I didn’t think it could beat homecoming but the more I’ve digested it (no second viewing completed just yet) the more I think I prefer it. It’s got a lot of stuff in there for the Marvel fans (and more specifically Spider-Man, like me!) and it’s also a really good summer blockbuster.
I’m very happy with how this film turned out and looking forward to ComicCon for hopefully the upcoming Phase 4 line up.
