“Spider-Man: Homecoming,” is tied for the highest score ever for a live action superhero movie on Rotten Tomatoes, the company announced Friday.

With a 94 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the movie is currently tied with 2004’s “Spider-Man 2,” 2008’s “Iron Man” and “The Dark Knight.”

In comparison, last month’s “Wonder Woman” starring Gal Gadot earned a score of 92 percent.

“Spider-Man: Homecoming” marks Spider-Man’s first stand-alone feature within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film draws inspiration from Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man run and teen comedy’s of the past as it follows Tom Holland as Peter Parker balancing his dual identity of a budding superhero while navigating the everyday life of a teenager in high school.

The film has been met with mostly positive reviews, with praise being given to Holland for his performance as the web-slinger as well as Michael Keaton’s villainous Vulture and the diverse cast who make the most out of small roles.

Some critics say the movie seems to work better as a teen comedy rather than a superhero drama, however, but that’s what makes it a heartwarming and fresh take on the web crawler.
