Spidey has finally made it home. The early social media reactions for the latest iteration of the Spider-Man franchise are in, and they should comfort hopeful fans, and sway the naysayers. Through the mutually beneficial deal reached between Sony and Marvel, Spider-Man has now made his first solo entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Spider-Man: Homecoming, and he can once again interact with fellow Marvel heroes, as was always intended for the character.
The lucky people who have seen the film boast the excellent script, and many say that the movie is funny -- really funny. Michael Keaton’s Vulture is also receiving a good deal of praise with a few even claiming his portrayal of the character to be the best villain in the MCU thus far (bummer Loki). Factoring in Holland’s performance in Captain America: Civil War, along with these overwhelmingly positive reviews of the webslinger’s solo film, and his reuniting with other Marvel characters, I would say it’s a safe bet that Holland’s Spider-Man will be the definitive portrayal of the character.
Did anyone really ever have any doubt about this? Taking into account that Marvel has an amazing track record, fans should have realized from the beginning that Marvel would take great care with their most famous and most widely loved superhero. Marvel is extremely calculating with their shared universe and wouldn’t taint it by bringing in an addition that would bring it down. This is a win for both Spider-Man and the MCU, as the success of this film can only bring about more good things for all involved. You can see some of the comments down below.
