SPOILERS for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming abound in this Spectacular Spoiler League review, reaction, and discussion of Spider-Man: Homecoming! Peter Parker as Spider-Man has finally made his Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) solo movie debut with an assist from Tony Stark’s Iron Man in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, and Michael Keaton (a former Batman Leaguers!) as Adrian Toomes/Vulture combine forces to make Spider-Man: Homecoming a fantastic MCU debut for Spider-Man. DeepBoyce and HazyRome are in the Hall of Spoilers to spoil all things Spider-Man: Homecoming and the amazing (or spectacular!) events that unfold in the movie.
Spider-Man faces off against the Vulture and The Shocker (2 versions of him!), as well as Marvel laying the groundwork for Scorpion (Michael Mando as Mac Gargan) and even more for the future of Marvel’s Spider-Man movie franchise. In addition, Tony Stark takes on a notable mentor role with Peter Parker and his Spider-Man persona while not overshadowing the narrative strokes that Marvel paints for Spider-Man in what is definitively HIS movie. Notably, Marvel lays the groundwork for Spider-Man (and other Avengers like Captain America and Thor) and his future appearance in Avengers: Infinity War which even includes a brand new suit! Although, we never get to see Spider-Man don this brand new suit in Spider-Man: Homecoming, the tease is more than enough. According to Kevin Feige, Tom Holland will play Peter Parker/Spider-Man for at least 3 more movies (Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers 4, and a sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming) and fans will no doubt be impatient to see Marvel’s Spider-Man story arc play out. Tom Holland, on the other hand, may have spoiled Marvel’s plans for secrecy by revealing an additional movie to complete a planned “Spider-Man: Homecoming Trilogy.” Regardless of what happens, the future is certainly bright for Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Spider-Man: Homecoming is the Marvel homecoming that we all deserve for Peter Parker AND Spider-Man!
