It’s time for another movie review! I promise I haven’t forgotten I write a book blog, but there are just so many movies this year that I am really excited about so I couldn’t help but share some of my thoughts! I will admit that after Endgame I was quite the emotional mess, and I wasn’t sure I was ready to jump back in with this movie. But, Spiderman delivered probably the best epilogue possible to Endgame. This movie was fun and heartfelt, Tom Holland’s Spiderman continues to be the best version of the character so far, and Zendaya’s MJ makes up for the horrific first version of the character. I loved that all the characters still felt like teenagers, they had a youthfulness that makes them so endearing. There were some very adorable romantic moments, and some heartbreakingly emotional scenes, all expertly mixed in with some fantastic superhero action, and a truly dynamic villain.
Giant spoiler for endgame!!! The movie focused a lot on the death of Tony Stark (*insert me sobbing uncontrollably*) and who was going to step up and replace him. Now I won’t give away anything else about how this was worked out in the movie, but I will say there is one specific scene where I saw Peter as a mini Tony and it was really sweet. I also really loved that MJ wasn’t made into a damsel. She is a badass feel character and she never screamed for peter to come save her. if anything Peter’s friend Ned has been the damsel which is really refreshing for a superhero movie.
One tip I will give to anyone setting out to the theatre to see this movie is 1000% sty for the after credit scenes (both of them!). They are insane and both definitely have HUGE implications for any Marvel movies to come. You do not have to have seen Endgame to see this movie, yes it does make it more fun, but the movie explains everything well enough that if you are just a spiderman fan you are all good to go in blind.
What did you guys think of the movie? What were your thoughts on Endgame? let me know in the comments!
