Spider-Man: Homecoming review: a celebration of smallness that makes the stakes personal - The Verge

This week on Marvel Mondays, we’re up to “Spider-Man: Homecoming” (2017), one of Nicolas’ absolute favorites and a movie he’d been looking forward to revisiting since the beginning of our series. He and Christy discuss the infectious joy of Tom Holland’s performance, the cool, meta casting of Michael Keaton, the connection to other Marvel movies and “Into the Spider-Verse,” and the fact that the more intimate stakes for teenage Peter Parker mean that stopping bad guys on the streets of Queens is as stressful as asking his crush to the big dance. Let us know how you’re enjoying our friendly neighborhood podcast, and thanks as always for joining us on Breakfast All Day!
