“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.[powergridprofile powerrank=”4040” node=”1051434” type=”project” path=”http://powergrid.thewrap.com/project/spider-man-homecoming” title=”Spider-Man: Homecoming” image=”spideyhomecoming.jpg”]
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.
