  2. dont mind the "8 Years later" in the start of the film..its an error..the events of Avengers happened in 2012 while the Civil War happened around 2016..hence its only 4 years apart..

    its an error from the studio (Sony)..

    dont worry, Spiderman No Way Home is still far..thats in Phase 4..you have time to watch Andrew's..and the 2 Venom films before that..

  3. I love Micheal Keaton in this film. His role as "The Vulture" was perfect considering his criminal enterprise was scavenging scraps and leftovers from other superhero's fights. First the Chitrauri from Avengers, then they mention Ultron parts from Sokovia, et cetera. He leads a crew of scavengers. And that flying wingsuit was amazing. 🕸

  4. Funny story: i remover seeing this movie in theaters back when it first came out and I remember the only seats that were available were the very front ones, so the whole movie I was looking straight up at the screen for basically 2 1/2 hours straight. So when the movie finally ended it hurt so much to movie my neck and I remember telling my parents “ya never again” 😂. Glad you enjoyed this movie and the MCUs portrayal of Spider-Man in a world of other Hero’s. As always amazing video and can’t wait for the Thor 3 reaction on Monday! ❤ 🕷️ 🕸️

  5. Homecoming is kind of a double-meaning, surrounding the homecoming dance at high school and Spider-Man returning home to Marvel Studios. An argument could also be made for homecoming meaning returning after the Germany trip.

  6. Oh man I LOVE the dynamic between Iron Man and Spiderman in this!! IIRC, oddly enough, in the comics (?), Iron Man was Spidey's sidekick. But here, Spidey is younger and Stark makes the perfect Rich Snarky Dad! Absolute BANGER of a movie!

  7. I never knew why it was called homecoming but my school (probably most) do a week of stuff like theme days to show school spirit. At the end of the week we had an assembly and awarded the grade that had the most school spirit the spirit stick. Then Friday is the big Homecoming football game and Saturday is the homecoming dance. But it’s apparently called homecoming because traditionally that week the school welcomes the graduating class alumni back “home”. Which if that actually happened I was not aware of it.

  8. I was so excited to see this one, both with my family and on your channel. Spider-Man is one of my favourite superheroes of all time!

    I believe the 'homecoming' in the title has a double meaning. First of all, the obvious one — it's a reference to the homecoming event at Midtown High. It might also refer to Spidey "coming home" to Marvel, after all of his previous movies being made and distributed exclusively by Sony Pictures.

    You're right that Michael Keaton knocked it out of the park in this movie. He gives the character of Adrian Toomes so much menace, especially in the drive to the school. And the alien tech flight suit was indeed amazing — a relief, considering how goofy the original comic book version of the Vulture's costume is.

    Pretty much no one saw the big reveal coming — not even those who knew the source material. In the comics, Peter had a short-lived love interest named Liz Allen, so I remember assuming that would be her name in the MCU as well. The reveal that she's actually Liz Toomes was a gut punch.

    The dynamic between Peter and Tony in this story is fascinating to me. Stark seems so standoffish towards him, which is such a change from his aggressive recruitment of Peter in "Civil War". My personal theory is that Tony is operating out of a sense of guilt. After all, he dragged a teenager into a fight between grown-ups that Peter had nothing to do with, and Stark's methods of convincing him to join were, in retrospect, manipulative and wrong-headed. I suspect that his realization of that, along with the fact that Peter got hurt, caused Tony to overcorrect in the opposite direction, and become too detached from truly mentoring him. But that's just my best guess.

    Many thanks, Kaiielle. Keep 'em coming! 🕸

  9. I don't know if this colors your review of the movie or not but Marvel later admitted the first time jump card was a mistake… the Battle of New York is canonically in 2012, their title card should have read "6 years later" and not 8, but they opted not to correct it on re-release.

    I'm sure it's already been said in the comments but it's "Homecoming," yes because of the American High School thing but also because it was the first time the character's movie rights were back with Marvel, albeit split with Sony in a weird way (fun fact, Marvel made $0 from the MCU Spider-Films but was allowed nearly complete creative control to match the Holland version to the other MCU films).

  10. 🕸 I've seen all of the various Spider-Man movies, but these MCU versions with Tom Holland are my favorite depictions of Spider-Man himself. The Tobey McGuire version of Spider-Man is good, and the same goes for certain aspects of Andrew Garfield's portrayal of the character, but I feel like Tom is the best all-around version. He's believable as a high school kid, he's likable and funny when he needs to be, and I just buy him as the high school kid learning to be a superhero the most. Looking forward to seeing your future reactions, MCU, Spider-Man and otherwise! 🕸✌🤓

  11. Of all the (live action) Spider-Man movies that currently exist, this my is my favorite. It was the “coming-of-age” movie in the MCU.
    Great cameos and Easter eggs. For example: Peter’s principal is played by Kenneth Choi. He also plays one of Captain America’s “Howling Commandos” Jim Morita who is the principal’s grandfather.

    Another MCU reaction so soon? YAY! 🎉

    As a big Spider-Man fan, this was such a great MCU intro to the character. I was never a huge fan of the Sam Raimi trilogy with Toby Maguire, and while I prefered The Amazing Spider-Man movies with Andrew Garfield, neither really lived up to what I wanted from a Spider-Man adaptation. I feel like this one does the best job out of the three we've had so far.

    Anyhow, as always, this was a lot of fun to re-watch with you 💕

  13. If Happy Hogan gave Peter basic human courtesy, the movie wouldn't have happened. All had to do is say, "Alright, kid! I'll pass this on to the authorities. Don't do anything else unless we call you in."

  14. I remember watching the very old 60s Spiderman cartoon in the 70s growing up. Then better Spiderman cartoons came out in the 80s..
    Spiderman is a classic super hero.

  15. I’m glad you caught the MJ reference during editing. When that moment passed by and you never even flinched, I was like aunt May with a “what the fu**” 🕷️🕸️

  16. The one thing I LOVED about this film was the relationship between Tony and Peter. Also Michael Keaton plays such a good villain. In the comics Vulture wasn't seen as a "serious" villain, but here he makes it work so well, even out of his suit. Plus there's VERY subtle hints he's Liz's dad. His crew brings up he has a family. He brings up he has a daughter in the past when he was cleaning up Stark tower etc. Very good reveal though

  17. A really cool twist in this movie that you liked was making Adrian Toomes(The Vulture) Liz's dad. In the comics, he was an elderly man who created a flying harness and gained superhuman strength.

  18. Homecoming wasn't just about the high school dance, it also sorta kinda refers to the Marvel-Sony deal which brought Spider-Man back to Marvel and the MCU. With all the previous movies made by Sony, this one represented a Spider-Man homecoming to Marvel.

  19. I love this movie so much, it's so lighthearted and always gets me in a good mood. I think movies often fail to accurately portray teenagers but this one does it perfectly. Not only everyone looks the age they're supposed to be but they also act and talk like actual teens and I love that.

    Also Tony and Peter's dynamic is one of my favorites in the MCU, they are so fun to watch

  20. One little thing you didn't mention (at least in the YT edit) are a few side characters from the Spider-Man comics that have occurred and now reoccur across multiple Spider-Man movies. For example, the kid calling Peter names throughout the movie and mocking him, that's Flash Thompson, the same character played by Joe Manganiello in the Tobey Maguire movies and here by Tony Revolori of The Grand Budapest Hotel (a great movie). There are also a few moments with Betty Brant, played here by Angourie Rice, and who was previously embodied by Elizabeth Banks, serving as J. Jonah Jameson's secretary.

    Others have briefly mentioned it, but before the Andrew Garfield movies were made, there was a push to get actor Donald Glover cast as Spider-Man. As a wink to the fan petitions, there's a moment in the season 2 premiere of "Community" where Glover wakes up wearing Spider-Man PJs. Cut to many years later, and two of the major producers on "Community" have directed their fourth feature film, Captain America: The Winter Soldier. As a nod to the work that helped them land the gig, they've thrown unimportant cameos from their "Community" cast into the MCU, including Danny Pudi as a random SHIELD tech in Winter Soldier, and Jim Rash as an MIT employee in Civil War. The Russos weren't involved with Homecoming, but it is nice to see Glover get his own little cameo as well.

    Spider-Man: Homecoming was written by the team of John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein. I don't know if you ever saw the show "Freaks and Geeks," but Daley is most famous for playing one of the main characters on the show, a nerd who loves Dungeons & Dragons. Before the Homecoming gig, he and Goldstein directed the newest Vacation movie (aka National Lampoon's Vacation), and after this they directed the very funny comedy Game Night, and, in a fitting full-circle experience for Daley, the 2023 movie Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. Vacation might be an acquired taste (I think it's very funny), but I have no reservations saying both Game Night and D&D are worth a watch. 🕸

  21. Love this movie. You should react to Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse whenever you can. It’s my favorite Spider-Man movie of all time. Great reaction 🙏🏽

  22. 45:50 I took my GF at the time to watch this in Theaters and she's a big Cap fan. Knowing fully well what the after credit scene was, all the while she wanted to leave. 😂😂😂 she was so mad
