Spiderman Homecoming is the sixth Marvel Spiderman movie. After two reboots I feel like this iteration might be my favorite. By now we should all know the story of Peter Parker and well I think the team of ten writers credited on this film felt everyone was tired of the origin of Peter Parker. The film starts off with Peter already having learned the "swing" of things. The story focuses more on Peter trying to fit in as a teenager and fighting for a spot on his favorite superhero team, The Avengers. The plot structure is very basic as far as superhero movies go but something Is refreshing about this one. It's a fun, humbling, action filled ride about growing up and Tom Holland really portrays a humanized superhero. One of my favorite aspects the film is how funny and essential the supporting cast is. Peter Parkers friends all provide really well played comic relief and just help ground Spiderman. Robert Downey Jr. plays an interesting father figure role through Iron man, teaching Peter how to become a superhero and help him focuses on developing as person instead of his powers. The villain, played by Michael Keaton sort of mirrors Peter Parker and is very well grounded as well. (Side note: I find it hilarious that Michael Keaton is essentially playing the literal Birdman but thats besides the point.) Another thing that always interest me is how Marvel finds a way to write in all these mini subplots that affect the entire Marvel Universe and set up later films and spinoffs. This all combined created a truly fun experience at the movies and brought some new life into what feels like the redundant marvel universe. I'm excited for the next one and hope they don't end up rebooting this as well because something feels right about this swing!
