Well, for some the waiting and spoiler-avoiding is over, we have seen Infinity War and our verdict is in. For me, what felt like the most up-and-down week in 2018 so far, I felt a bit underwhelmed by the latest Marvel entry. I even cheated a little on Captain America with Thor, but let’s not dwell on that too long.
In an era where it’s almost impossible to avoid superhero movies and shows, Spider-Man: Homecoming finds a fresh way to portray a story of a superhero in the overly exhausting Marvel Universe. It adds a fresh take on the superhero phenomena, it brings us back to the excitement of having these superheroes exist, but it also asks us to keep our feet on the ground. And while I would not give Spider-Man: Homecoming the highest slot in my favourite Marvel movie lineup, I feel like it will always have a special place in my heart for making me appreciate the simpler things in life.
