  • Published on:  7/13/2017
  • Spider-Man: Homecoming is a huge return to form for the character. What did Marvel Studios do to steer Spider-Man back on track? I tried to answer that question with a really long video about it!

    captainmidnight okay thank you very much

  • Viktor Lima (Oct 7, 2017)

    another great thing they did was show what happens when there arent any tall buildings or cranes to swing on.

  • Bucket_head (14 hours ago)

    Viktor Lima the video game (PS4) does this too.

    Have you ever played spider-man ps4 ? if you do, you will see how tall buildings make spider-man fantastic.

    Tom Holland portrays both Spiderman and Peter Parker perfectly. You can´t change my mind on this. It just feels right.

    +Ghoe Fakyerself Spiderman doesnt talk a mile a minute in the comics. You are mixing him up with Deadpool

    His dress code is on point.Andrew was a hipster.Toby was underwhelming.He has friends.Andrew was a loner.Tobey had Harry but that became super shaking after the first movie.Aunt May is hot.There's no god reason for this.She wasn't that sexy in Homecoming but really sexy in Civil war.They tried to lessen her appeal.She isn't suppose to be appealing.He isn't that smart.He fucks up but it's stupid Tomes realised he was spidey.He isn't that smart.Yeah he has good grades.Sure he was on the rob...

    "You're watching Peter Parker, a 15-year-old kid who thinks he's about to die."...and then comes Infinity War, where we have to watch a 15-year-old kid KNOW he's about to die.

    Damn he died in 16-17 is that a reference to ultimate peter Parker's death?

    I like your explanation about Spider-Man as a smaller character. Even tony says it in the movie. He needs to be a friendly NEIGHBORHOOD Spider-Man, not save the world

  • Fansee 13 (Apr 10, 2019)

    They can't just make a 15-year-old kid into a powerhouse out of knowhere lolIt's common sense

  • Sam Barrie (Feb 20, 2019)

    You have to give it time, spiderman will grow as the movies progress.There are people idiotic enough to believe that he will start off at his peak level in his first solo movie

  • Fropitz Skeeter (Aug 18, 2018)

    70s Spider-Man is terrifying

  • kingslayer316 (Feb 7, 2019)

    Ted ThePilot that show didn’t really have a bad origin story

    I see u with ur young justice reference. And I respect itn

  • LiamRC (Aug 11, 2018)

    holy shit I only just noticed the poster behind them in the bank robbery scene that says "Identity theft? We got you covered" meanwhile the robbers are wearing the masks of the avengers

  • Skye Hall (Sep 7, 2018)

    I also feel like Tom Holland was a fantastic choice for the role.he delivers the character in such a loveable way and instantly makes you love him. Even my mom, who hates Spiderman as a superhero (she says he's 'wimpy'), got emotional during the death scene in Infinity War because he did such a phenomenal job of portraying a terrified kid who knows they're dying and is absolutely powerless to stop it. Tom's iteration of Spiderman is by far my favorite and may even be my #1 in the MCU, which is saying s...

    Imho, Spiderman homecoming is the most down to earth of the recent live action spiderman movies. Both the maguire and garfield movies seemed to aspire for an operatic grandeur, but homecoming feels like a john hughes movie, with million dollar marvel action scenes here and there, of course. It's a humbler spiderman, but that's also what makes it unique.

    being mentored by tony stark, having a billion dollar suit, and going to a school for geniuses is more down to earth than a poor, angsty teen who's just down on his luck while trying to take up keep his life?but if that's seriously that's what you relate to more then more power to you ig
