Spider-Man Homecoming movie review: Tom Holland makes the superhero likeable

"I think women are awesome and I think it's cool to see women in a powerful position and kicking butt". Interestingly enough, two of the dirt worst superhero movies since then also featured the webslinger: Raimi's terrible Spider-Man 3 in 2007, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in 2014, which killed the rebooted franchise before it could even make the planned Sinister Six film it spent 2 hours setting up.

Spider-Man: Homecoming has been in theaters for less than 24 hours, but Marvel is already looking ahead to July 5, 2019, when Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 comes out.

And you know what? High expectations were riding on Spider-Man: Homecoming to break the jinx, and it has succeeded.

Filmmaker? Check. Director Jon Watts, who turned heads with his debut, the indie gem "Cop Car", brings his gritty aesthetitic and ear for rhythmic, natural dialogue with mega-budget resources.

Debroy also asserted that before India, "only country in the world which is federal and has GST is Canada". Similar trends were witnessed in Australia and New Zealand where price rise followed GST rollout.


Some fans have pointed to Spider-Man's impressive combat performance during the big battle in Captain America: Civil War as evidence that his Spidey-Sense is firing on all cylinders.

But we have two years until we find out what the ultimate plan for Marvel will be. He tries, endearingly, to prove his mettle on his own as he waits idly in Queens for a call from Tony Stark - giving directions to the elderly, retrieving stolen bikes and doing flips on command.

Thanks to a quick opening prologue, we know an embittered contractor named Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton) has been hoarding and honing the alien technology ever since the aftermath of the Avengers' battle in NY. Peter, with his true-blue heart and naivete and eagerness to prove himself, of course takes on more than he can handle, while also trying to navigate high school, homework, crushes and the awkwardness of just being a teenager. "You've got to pass the torch". Zendaya, it turns out, is a comic delight, a onetime Disney child star who does a surprisingly good impression of a high school outcast with angsty waves covering her judgmental eyes, carving out a new archetype in the vein of Daria and Allison from the Breakfast Club. Hannibal Buress and Martin Starr are there, too, to add reliable laughs. But it's a fine start to a new Spider-Man franchise, even if nobody except Sony accountants were really asking for one. Zendaya manages to pack the character with abundant personality in the few scenes she has, strongly piquing our interest to see what she can do with a bigger role in the next installment. Raimi got Parker right but always missed the masked hero part. The Lego scene - complete with the unfortunate fate of the Lego Death Star - is a attractive homage to Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man #2, where a panicked Miles reveals his powers to Ganke. Simply: every significant and semi-significant female character looks like a model. Over a year or two, you move from being a helpless child who thinks like a child to being a mostly helpless child who thinks like an adult but has very little control over what they do with their time. The M.J. of the future is smart, cutting, and probably won't be easily wooed by Parker's web-slinging and superhero features.
