Spider-Man: Homecoming is coming to theatres soon so allow me to complain about a movie that no one has seen yet. Everyone is excited that Spider-Man will finally be joining The Avengers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but I think we’re all getting a little ahead of ourselves.
I will admit that when he appeared in Captain America: Civil War I was far more happy than I man my age should’ve been. Shout out to the girl who went to see the movie with me and probably felt extremely weird sitting next to me as I smiled ear to ear every time Spider-Man did anything. Needless to say, it didn’t work out between us.
Anyway, Spider-Man showing up in another character’s movie is one thing but having his own solo adventure is a whole other event that I do not trust.
Here are 5 reasons why Spider-Man: Homecoming is going to suck:
1. Spider-Man fatigue
This is the 6th Spider-Man we’ve seen and the third reboot of the franchise. Does anyone like the new Pirates of the Caribbean or Transformers movies at this point? And those are continued narratives. Imagine if they rebooted Transformers every 3 years. I’d be even more ignored.
I’m sure Tom Holland will be great just like Andrew Garfield was great but Tobey Maguire will forever be my Spider-Man. On top of that, how many times can we see Spider-Man in high school being nervous with girls and bullied by Flash Thompson? We get it, he’s a nerd and a teenager and blah blah.
We don’t need a new Spider-Man movie for at least another decade but nope, apparently Marvel has a trilogy planned so this madness will never end. Cash. Rules. Everything. Around. Me.
