Part 1 – Spider-Man: Homecoming
In what could possibly be the best Spider-Man film to date, Tom Holland did an outstanding job as the third actor to don the mask. From the get go, as the Marvel logo appeared, both Will and Ryan felt it had the feel of a truly “Marvel” Spider-Man film. This wasn’t a Sony film with the support of Marvel, but more the opposite, as it had the feeling of other Marvel films.
The guys go into the various things that there was to love about this film. The film had outstanding performance from both Holland, as well Michael Keaton as the Vulture. This was an all around great film, with plenty of laughs, and growing pains of a young and learning Spider-Man.
