Movie of the Week: Spider-Man: Homecoming

The Marvel Cinematic Universe rolls on this weekend with a new version of New York’s friendly neighborhood wall-crawler ready to take the silver screen. Remember when Tony Stark went to Queens to recruit a bright teenager to help him bring in Steve Rogers and the Winter Soldier? Since the implementation of the Sokovia Accords which led to the schism between the Avengers, Tony Stark has taken this talented young man under his wing so to speak. This young man’s name is Peter Parker and he is ready to take what he has learned since he stood with Iron Man to try to stop Captain America and take the next step as a hero. With Earth’s Mightiest Heroes split, New York now turns to Spider-Man for protection in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Director: Jon Watts

Written by: Jon Watts, Jonathan Goldstein, John Francis Daley, Christopher Ford, Erik Sommers, Chris McKenna

Starring: Tom Holland, Zendaya, Robert Downey Jr. Marissa Tomei, Jon Favreau, Michael Keaton, Gwyneth Paltrow, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, Laura Harrier, Abraham Attah, Bokeem Woodbine and Chris Evans

What am I expecting to see?: Spider-Man is the one Marvel hero I wish would get a break from the movies since Homecoming is the third time the character has been rebooted for a feature-length film but based on Holland’s debut as Spidey in Civil War and the initial reports on the reviews that I’ve heard up to this point, it looks like this take on Spider-Man is a winner! Phase Three of the MCU has been firing on all cylinders and I don’t expect Spider-Man: Homecoming to slow that momentum at all!
