random thoughts on ‘Spiderman: Homecoming’

I watched it again last night and it’s so good. โค

I know people criticize it because the MCU’s Spiderman is closely connected to Iron Man instead of being a solo superhero, but I don’t buy that. For one, Iron Man isn’t actually that involved in Homecoming. Yes, he gives Peter a suit. But I actually appreciate that because, come on, you’re telling me that a teenager is going to make an epic suit like that all by himself? I found that borderline ridiculous in the Andrew Garfield movies. So having a tech genius create the suit actually makes a lot more sense.

But anyway. I’m not really hear to bash other people’s opinions or go on a rant or anything. ๐Ÿ˜›

I did have a couple thoughts to share. First of all, I think that Peter Parker is the Greatest Of All Time. Like, for instance when he opts to go hunt down criminals instead of hanging out at the pool with his crush? Who does that?? Peter Parker, that’s who. Awesome, awesome Peter Parker. And then he saves Toomes’s life! And arguably the best part is that Iron Man TOOK AWAY HIS SUIT and he still went after Toomes and defeated him! That’s just incredible. I had forgotten some parts of the film, so when Iron Man took the suit back, I was like “I don’t remember how Peter gets the suit back in time for the big fight at the end”…and, yeah. He didn’t. And yet he was able to save Tony’s stuff and Toomes’s life. *all the heart eyes*

And then there’s Toomes himself. You can’t say that Marvel doesn’t have good villains, not anymore. Toomes is an awesome villain. That end credits scene, where he doesn’t give Peter up to the other bad guys? I can’t! And I love his costume design, with that leather jacket that looks like a vulture. Pretty cool.

This blog post isn’t a post so much as some gushy fangirling. ๐Ÿ˜€ But let me know in the comments if you agree that Peter Parker is awesome! Is he your favorite film version of Spiderman? Thoughts on Toomes? Can’t wait to hear from you!

  1. I know a number of people who think of Spider-Man as their favourite superhero, and I can fully understand why. He feels like a real young person (whether in his high school years, or his college/early adulthood years). He’s honourable, dedicated to his superhero work, and uses a good mix of his intelligence and his abilities. His superhero work often interferes with his personal life, leading to struggles with his relationships, his school work (which he should excel at) and his finances. Yet no matter how hard life gets, he never gives up.

    Yet despite all his struggles, his stories are usually light-hearted and fun.

  2. Peter is a sweetheart, I agree. โค

    I actually haven't seen this movie. Not sure why I didn't watch it in theaters when it first came out? I don't think I'll watch it now, though, because it would probably "push" me into disliking Tony Stark all over again. The man is dead, so I don't want to revisit those feelings. ๐Ÿ˜›

    Great post!

    1. It doesn’t do much to advance the MCU as a whole (besides establishing Spider-Man as a character + his bond with Tony to make Infinity War more feelsy), so you didn’t miss much in that regard. But…I still feel like you’re missing out in some ways. ๐Ÿ˜‰ (Not pressuring you lol. Just sayin’.)

    2. Stark is physically in there little, but he super obnoxious sometimes to another non-tony fan like me, however, the movie is worth it, I was super mad about the Amazing Spider Man ones ending, so I had to cool off for awhile (and when this Peter was introduced in Civil War he was super annoying), and when I started this, its great. It doesn’t rival the Amazing Spider Man, it just a different take while being true to the Spider Man story (my favorite superhero story).

  3. Awwww, I love both “Homecoming” AND “Far From Home.” I saw FFH in theaters a few months after Endgame, and it was genuinely comforting to see Peter continue Tony’s legacy in his own way. And I still enjoy Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man (I also prefer Sally Field as Aunt May), but Tom Holland is far more convincing as an adorkable high school student!

    1. Oh yeah, Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man is great! Really enjoy watching him & I appreciate what he did for the character. But Tom Holland is my fave. ๐Ÿ˜‰
