Nothing signals a studio’s confidence in their film more than lifting the embargo on audience reactions. Marvel invited fans (and critics) to share their reactions on Spider-Man: Homecoming, a full two weeks ahead of its release - and while there’s a lot of standard ‘this is the best Spider-Man ever’ talk - they’re universally positive.

This is routine practice for Marvel, who hold industry and press screenings for their films well in advance of the general release to build buzz around their movies. And since we haven’t really seen a critically panned film coming out of the studio, it is a practice that is serving them well.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is the second cinematic reboot of the iconic superhero, following the Amazing Spider-Man series, which starred Andrew Garfield. It’s the character’s first solo film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, after he was debuted in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Tom Holland, who is receiving wide praise for his performance, stars as the friendly neighbourhood web-crawler. The cast is rounded off by Robert Downey Jr, Michael Keaton and Marisa Tomei. The film, directed by Jon Watts, is scheduled for a July 7 release.
