Man, Will is killing it on these pages. We’re doing this in a less linear style. Sure, one panel basically follows the next, but not one thing seen in any of these panels is seen in the panels before or after. That’s not the easiest way to tell a story, but it’s an effective way to create a mood and get a point across. And like I said, I think Will’s killing it.
Spider-Man: Homecoming was excellent. For me, it nudged Iron Man out of my personal Top Five MCU Films. In fact, it settled in at #2, second only to Winter Soldier. It mastered the qualities with which Iron Man introduced the MCU, brilliant casting, spot-on characterization, charismatic writing (and presumably improvisation), and remembering that superhero movies are supposed to be fun.
Remember when I told you guys that #Squirrel and I watched Casablanca? Spider-Man: Homecoming isn’t that. It’s not a classic in that sense. It’s in my top five MCU films, but not in the same ballpark as my top ten films period.
But man, it was a good time at the movies. (Its best moments weren’t as good as the best moments in Wonder Woman, nor were its worst moments as bad as those in Wonder Woman. It’s a less flawed but not as inspiring film.)
