Little things I liked about Spider-Man: Homecoming (contains spoilers)
(I just came back from watching it again so gotta jot these down while they’re fresh in my mind)
Peter being a relatable teen
Tony being a relatable dad
Karen being voiced by Jennifer Connelly who is married to Paul Bettany who voices JARVIS/Vision
technically Karen is married to JARVIS then
Peter’s love interest was Liz who was his first love interest in the comics
The girl that was doing the school news is named Betty Brant. In the comics, Betty is a reporter for Jonah Jameson. I guess she’s working toward that role, huh?
Miles Morales MCU confirmed
Donald Glover playing Aaron Davis aka the Prowler aka Miles’ uncle
Donald Glover being the one that dropped that huge bombshell about Miles Morales because Donald
is a huge Spidey fan. If you watched Community, he wears a Spidey tie, Spidey PJs, and a Spidey shirt in three episodes
voices Miles Morales in the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon
supported the fans that were trying to get him as the new Spidey before Andrew Garfield was cast
Forehead of Security reference!!!!! xD I was the only one laughing when it got a passing mention.
Happy kept the freaking ring since 2008 which is when Iron Man came out. The movie that started it all…..
The theme song played in the beginning during the Marvel sequence!!!!
Iron Spider ???????
Tony delivering those lines to Peter after the ferry incident were similar to the ones he delivers to Steve Rogers after Peter Parker’s death in the comics
Ned Leeds being a nod to the Hobgoblin and Ganke Lee at the same time
There was a teacher in Peter’s school that kinda looked like a kindergarten teacher from the elementary school in my town. Mr. Wells, if that was you, I never pictured you as an actor.
The school kids actually looked like teens???? Wow
Michael Keaton was damn awesome
Actually, the whole cast was great
Having a whole bunch of villains without you even realizing it until the end
there was the one everybody saw, The Vulture, but there was also
the Scorpion (dude with the Scorpion tattoo, he was the guy from the prison scene and the ferry scene)
there were two Shockers (one died but the others still there)
the Prowler (Donald Glover)
and the Tinkerer (the guy that created the weapons)
Also, for all you (and me) fanfic writers out there, now we have loads of material for SuperFamily stuff, don’t you think? :P
Those Steve Rogers PSAs wtf?
This time MJ stalks Peter instead of the other way around. Interesting
“He’s probably a war criminal now”
“I was looking at….porn….”
“What the fu–”
“I got ice cream”
Tony Stark fucking listened to Peter!!!! He sent the FBI to the Ferry to take care of what Peter had told him!!!!!! And then he called Peter to possibly tell him but we’ll never know cuz Peter hung up on him. Such a great dad *tears*
Happy not being able to say Mjolnir Megingjörð. (I wanna give thanks to youvegotyourvictory for correcting me on this. Even after two times I’m still learning new stuff. May have to watch it again haha!)
They have Cap’s Shield prototype
The after credits scene…fuck you Marvel…just fuck you
Oh I almost forgot one! The scene in the rubble! Not only was it emotional and reminded us that Peter is a kid but also the scene where the reflection shows half Peter’s face and half Spidey’s mask was actually the cover for one of the comics!
You all: Spider-man Homecoming was so good! But we should have gotten a Miles Morales movie :( but Tom holland is SOOO cute and we FINALLY got a perfect peter Parker movie that really understands him!!!
People that read Ult. Spider-man: Homecoming ripped many crucial elements of Miles Morales’ story off to give to Peter in an attempt to make the story fresh and new. By doing this, Marvel could still have a revised take on a modern day spidey story but also play it safe by casting a white boy in the lead, even if that means glossing over the things that made Peter Parker an interesting character in the first place. But now when Miles’ story is adapted to the big screen, core aspects that are unique to his character and lore won’t feel as iconic, because we just saw them in Peter’s latest movie. But Tom Holland is likable enough to stop people from acknowledging these issues so Marvel can have its cake and eat it too
