Spider-Man Far From Home or Far From Perfect?

Did Marvel’s Latest Cinematic Release
Come Strong After Endgame?

After the climatic and anticipated release of Avengers Endgame, Marvel did not close down on their cinematic game with Spider-Man sequel following just a few months later. Now I have to admit as much as I love Spider-Man and my boy Tom Holland, I did worry Marvel was releasing another movie too soon after Endgame. I mean think about it. We were waiting so long to see the fate our favorite superheroes and then having to deal with the sad deaths of three of the main avengers. I just thought we would have a bit more time to grieve our heroes and say goodbye to a chapter before being hit with another film, but leave it to Marvel to stay busy. So its only fair to say, that I was a bit hesitant when walking through the theatre, but…

I did in fact enjoy the movie and it did not disappoint. Marvel took the opportunity to give us a movie that not only touched upon the grievance of Iron Man, but also give us a hope for the future of our new and older avengers. During the movie, we see Peter Parker struggle with his work as Spider-Man especially without the help of his mentor, Tony stark. This is a huge change for Peter in that we usually see him in a light where he wants to do more and prove himself as a superhero to now him wanting to hang up his suit. Marvel has always been good with adding the humor to their movies, but they have also been picking up on their game of giving the characters more of an emotional depth. Kudos to Marvel for more new character development and building on more relationships (we finally get a Peter and MJ moment). Let’s hope this is an actual good relationship unlike Marvel’s previous attempts: Hulk and Black Widow, Cap making out with Peggy’s niece, Vision and Wanda, Thor and Jane, and yes I’m gonna say it Tony and Pepper. Lets’ face it, Pepper was kind of annoying). Peter and MJ have a pretty classic and famous connection so here is too hoping. However..

Did anyone else know this Mysterio character was full of it from the beginning? No, just me. Okay, let me just say as comical and fun some of these Marvel villains are, it would be nice for the individual superhero movies to not have as obvious of plot lines. (Iron Man 3, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Spider-Man:Homecoming, you get the idea.) Don’t get me wrong, we know the Marvel cinematic universe kicks ass, but I wish we didn’t have to wait like every five movies for a good villain. Besides that, the movie gave us an easy storyline to follow, fun moments with Ned, a new budding romance for MJ and Peter and maybe even a romance for Happy and Aunt May. Plus we are getting more of a look for the future of our Spider-Man, I mean we knew he was gonna quit, right.

My final thoughts on Far From Home is the movie is a solid A- and I’m not just saying this because we got a shirtless scene with Tom Holland *cough*. This movie is exactly what we needed to look forward to the next steps in the Marvel universe. They respected the loss of Iron-Man and gave us the approval that it is okay to move on. Tony wouldn’t have left this world knowing we wouldn’t keep watching. Let’s face it, Marvel will be taking our paychecks for a long time. Here is a look at the line-up for Marvel Phase 4:

Black Widow
The Eternals
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
Thor: Love and Thunder

Black Panther 2
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
Captain Marvel 2
