Marvel Post, incoming! Fair warning.
So, I’ve figured out why Spider-Man Homecoming was a disappointment, for me. I’ve been saying it’s because Holland’s Peter Parker isn’t a photographer, but I realized, recently, that that isn’t it.
I’m disappointed because Holland’s Peter Parker isn’t a photographer that takes pictures of Spider-Man.
Peter Parker, aka Spider-Man, taking what amounts to batches of low-tech selfies, and selling them, as a source of income is my favourite thing about Spidey! It’s like a celebrity taking selfies and then selling them to a magazine under an assumed name. I love it.
First of all: hell yeah, I’d be my own photographer if I was a superhero! That’s hilarious! Second of all: Petey just isn’t my Petey without his camera.
TL;DR, if they were just going to take away my favourite part of the Peter Parker Spider-Man, they should have just gone with a different Spider-Man. I love me some Miguel/Spider-Man 2099, and I wouldn’t complain if Miguel didn’t have a camera.
