I feel like I need to say this before any Marvel review this year, I’m a long time Marvel comic book fangirl, but I’ve never been a MCU can do no wrong fan girl. In my eyes, they’ve done plenty of wrong. I absolutely detested Spider-Man: Homecoming. Ok, that’s a bit harsh, I loved Michael Keaton as the Vulture but didn’t like much else about it.
