The upcoming Spiderman movie is premiering in theaters this weekend.
I’ve been reading reviews, which have just come out, and Spiderman Homecoming is slated to be the best one yet. I think it’s because they actually use a real high school kid, not like a 30-year old Andrew Garfield playing a 15-year-old, and there’s a ton of life-lesson metaphors as takeaways (like, maybe, not using a 30-year-old to play a 15-year-old). Anyway, I’m STOKED!
I love the fact most of the characters are played by actual high-school kids, and it’s a truly diverse cast, lead by Tom Holland, who did this crazy version of Rihanna’s Umbrella on Lip Sync Battle.
To be honest, I was a huge DC comics fan when I was a kid, not Marvel. Think: Justice League, Aquaman, Booster Gold, Batgirl. I don’t read comic books anymore, but Hollywood turned me on to Marvel with movies like X-Men that was still very nostalgic. Spiderman movies are fun as hell, and die-hard fans can actually visit movie locations filmed in famous New York City spots, courtesy of New York Magazine. I know nobody reading this is really going to geek out and hit up every spot but, hey, at least now you have something to do when you’re in NYC!
