“The idea behind the film is watching a kid have fun and enjoy being Spiderman, and if you gave a 15-year-old or even a 20-year-old superpowers they would have the time of their lives and enjoy it. It’s very important for us that people see a happy, fun version”, said the new Spiderman Tom Holland.
This is the second time, Peter Parker shares the screen with heroes from Marvel Cinematic Universe in Spiderman Homecoming. There’s excitement around its release on July 7 in India. For one, the film stays true to the comic. Apart from Peter Parker, the other heroes, such as Tony Stark, Captain America, and the Avengers also make an appearance. Also, Tom Holland perfectly fits the role of the 15-year-old web-slinger. It’s hoped he gets as overwhelming a response as Toby Maguire. Then there’s Jon Watts, the director, who was selected for his unconventional filming style — something to definitely watch out for.
Directed by Jon Watt, Homecoming is a joyful celebration of Spider-Man, a character who’s arguably the most popular Marvel superhero in history. But the movie thankfully doesn’t just rehash what we already know, and Watt makes a few savvy choices to give the iconic webslinger a fresh feel. Homecoming is a constant reminder that he’s a newbie hero and a 15-year-old kid, dealing with Spanish tests and chemistry classes as much as he’s dealing with criminal throwdowns. Homecoming stays true to the spirit of young superhero and carves out a teen experience for Peter that feels so unmistakably familiar. It may make you long for your teenage innocence, and that’s a feat in itself. The chaotic world around these kids has turned their adolescence into a sort of charade, because they’ve all had to grow up with death and destruction around them. Prom, pop quizzes, college, and crushes might seem inconsequential compared to the seriousness of alien invasions and Captain America going rogue. But perhaps, as Homecoming explores, those teenage moments are more crucial to growing up than ever.
The “homecoming” in the title of Spider-Man: Homecoming has two meanings, and they both speak directly to the movie’s small focus. The film is a literal homecoming, as Peter Parker, aka Spider-Man (aka Tom Holland), returns to Queens after the epic Berlin battle in his last Marvel Cinematic Universe outing in Captain America: Civil War. But Peter’s sophomore homecoming dance also plays a significant part in the story, as he sweats over whether to confess his crush on his senior classmate Liz (Laura Harrier), the head of his school’s Academic Decathlon team.
The acrobatic choreography of Peter Parker zipping through New York City, and all of the movie’s fizzy, absolutely glee-inducing fight scenes are entertaining. They’re every bit as splendid and as pleasurable as they were imagined in Steve Ditko and Stan Lee’s original comic books. Marvel superhero fights onscreen convey a visual language. Black Widow is sleek, agile grace. Hulk is sheer power. Thor is shock and awe. Iron Man is stylish tech. But it’s Spidey’s brand of elastic silliness that is the most lovable thing about him.
The ‘sipdey’ superhero is webbing the theaters in India on 7th July. Superman:Homecoming is building up the momentum and the story line for the next years big release of Avengers: Infinity Wars. The craze among the teenagers and adults alike can be seen in the public. The multiplexes are all geared up for the big Marvel release next week.
