Spiderman: Homecoming

With 5 movies released in the last 15 years, the Spider-Man franchise has had entries ranging from wonderful to unwatchable. This left the newest installment, Spider-Man: Homecoming with a lot of baggage, both good and bad, to overcome. Thankfully it manages to skirt most of the land mines with great casting, a well-developed story and a little help from the MCU’s existing world.

Spider-Man: Homecoming manages to have a coherent story that still fits within the parameters of a superhero movie and the demands of the MCU. The film opens with a salvage crew cleaning up the debris after the Chitauri invasion in The Avengers. When the Department of Damage Control takes over the site, forcing the team out of a job, the head of the crew Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton) decides to use their small supply of alien technology to find a new way to make money. At this point Peter Parker’s (Tom Holland) story takes over and we pick up on his life just after the events of Captain America: Civil War. Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) gives him the super suit along with a warning not to get into trouble and sends him off with Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) as his contact.
