Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man: Homecoming ★★★★

Spider-Man: Homecoming sees the return of the friendly neighbourhood Spiderman to the MCU. Gone is the brooding seriousness of the Sony editions, and instead we have a colourful, funnier and more pure version of the web-slinger.

Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, young Peter Parker returns home to live with his Aunt May. Under the watchful eye of mentor Tony Stark, Parker starts to embrace his newfound identity as Spider-Man. He also tries to return to his normal daily routine - distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just a local neighbourhood superhero. Peter must soon put his powers to the test when the evil Vulture emerges to threaten everything that he holds dear.

Perhaps, other than Thor: Ragnarok, Marvel's brand of comedy works best in this movie. Additionally, Tom Holland is great as Spiderman, probably my favourite actor to play the role to date. Very funny film, and a welcome break prior to Avengers: Infinity War.
