First Spider-Man: Homecoming reactions are in, and Twitter’s being hyperbolic as usual
The first reactions to Spider-Man: Homecoming, starring Tom Holland and Robert Downey Jr, are in - and they’re super positive.hollywood Updated: Jun 25, 2017 15:27 IST
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.

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING is pure joy. Tom Holland is perfect: He's having the time of his life, and it shows.— Devan Coggan (@devancoggan) June 24, 2017
I'd kind of forgotten how much I loved Spider-Man growing up & related to Peter Parker until I saw Homecoming. Movie captures why he endures— Jim Vejvoda (@JimVejvoda) June 24, 2017
#SpiderManHomecoming is one of the best Marvel movies and the best Spider-Man movie, period. So completely terrific, a true crowd pleaser.— Eric Walkuski (@ericwalkuski) June 24, 2017
My #SpiderManHomecoming take: Tom H >Tobey, high school stuff works, Avengersverse doesn't, and it's a benchmark for blockbuster diversity— jen yamato (@jenyamato) June 24, 2017

Spider-Man: Homecoming...— Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) June 24, 2017
My new favorite super hero movie of all time.
#SpiderManHomecoming is the third best Spider-Man movie. The cast is great, the tone is affable, the drama is... a little thin, honestly.— William Bibbiani (@WilliamBibbiani) June 24, 2017
