Spider-Man: far From Home looks to be a fun movie filled with kids being kids, heroes fighting villains, and possibly some spy stuff. Who doesn’t love spy stuff? One of the things that made Captain America: The Winter Soldier so unique in the MCU was it’s 1970s espionage flick feel. You could have the exact same movie but using normal humans instead of Captain America and it’d be a great spy flick. Well, maybe you couldn’t have some of the action scenes, but the story could remain intact. Can the same magic happen again?
In a recent interview with /Film Tom Holland, who plays Spider-Man/Peter Parker, talks about the feel and tone of the film:
“This film is kind of like if Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spectre had a baby. That’s how I would describe this film. It has the sexy aspect of being in Europe, having the spy mission undertone, but at the heart of it, it’s still a very similar film to Spider-Man: Homecoming in the sense that it’s really about Peter and his friends and the kids and the lighthearted humor that they have, and what happens when a group of Americans go to Europe. It’s a pretty amazing experience. So yeah, it’s pretty similar, but with a new undertone with super-cool spy stuff.”
Comparing the film to a James Bond flick is a pretty bold claim and I wonder if I should have faith in this comparison specifically because Spectre wasn’t all that great. I’m sure he didn’t think of it that deep, probably just the first Bond film to pop into his mind.
