If the rumors turn out to be true, the pair would solidify a trend that has occurred with each of the "Spider-Man" movie franchises. Previously, "Spider-Man 3" attracted 4.93 million viewers in 2007. Homecoming is a real joy to experience.
Here's a synopsis: Starring the world's most iconic Super Hero, Spider-Man features the acrobatic abilities, improvisation and web-slinging that the wall-crawler is famous for, while also introducing elements never-before-seen in a Spider-Man game. In the MCU, we now have a younger Aunt May, so why can't we have a younger Uncle Ben?
Without a doubt one of the best Spider-Man films, we have more to look forward to now that Spidey is part of The Avengers. But Parker might have bitten off more than he can chew when he goes up against the Vulture (Michael Keaton); a local arms dealer who's managed to fuse illegal weaponry with the remnants of interplanetary technology leftover from the battle of NY.
Unlike the heavy handed and joyless Captain America: Civil War or the totally overblown Amazing Spider-Man 2, Homecoming hits with a relevant and modern take on the character which plays deliberately smaller in scope.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is in theaters now.
Merging Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a project that's taken years to happen, and very almost didn't.
The character of Ben Parker has been portrayed by two legendary actors. Jon Watts' little homages to John Hughes' teen films that are scattered throughout the film just make it all the more cool, such as making Peter's classmate Michelle or MJ as she likes to be called (who we hope to see more of in the sequel) reminiscent of Allison from The Breakfast Club.
However, it is an intriguing and plausible casting choice. Imagine if John Hughes had made a Spider-Man movie, using a script punched up by "SNL" writers - the good ones, that is. And that's no mean feat at all.
