#6- Spider-Man: Homecoming

Feature Detail

After two reboots, everyone’s favorite web-slinger returned for his first solo outing under the Marvel Studios banner (albeit in conjunction with Sony) in Spider-Man: Homecoming. On the whole, this film did a lot of things right in terms of washing out the bad taste many fans were left with after the Marc Webb Amazing Spider-Man movies, but for all its merits, it didn’t feel like a true Spider-Man movie at times. The MJ/not-MJ reveal feels contrived, the depiction of Flash Thompson is questionable, and although it’s not as prevalent as the trailers led us to believe, the involvement of Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark/Iron Man is overplayed at times. Still, it’s certainly great to have Spidey in the MCU, and with presumably two more solo movies on the horizon, we have plenty to look forward to.
