I watched it again last night and it’s so good. ❤
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. 😛
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. 😀 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!
