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. To this very day, I haven’t bothered to watch it 2nd time. With that said, a lot of my issues from the Homecoming remain in Far From Home but there is so much greatness here that after End Game and Captain Marvel, it’s time I come out of the closet and join the Marvel can do no wrong club – except for a few minor quibbles this is an almost perfect summer film with a post credit sequence that blew my mind.
When Peter Parker leaves his Spider-Man suit at home while on a European class trip, he is reminded of his responsibilities by Nick Fury. Enter one of the webcrawler’s most ingenious villains, Mysterio!
And what’s going on between Happy Hogan and May Parker?
Spider-Man: Far From Home opens on July 5th.
