2012’s The Avengers brought together all the elements from the planned Phase One of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was a payoff movie, and one that was executed brilliantly by Joss Whedon. It also gave us the first on-screen appearance of Thanos (now played by Josh Brolin) whose foreshadowed war on the universe would be put on hold for several years. Until now. Since The Avengers, too many of the Marvel movies have been forced into world building while telling their story. For the first time in years, there is no horizon which frees sreenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely and directors the Russo Brothers to simply tie the elements together as Whedon did six years ago and tell one hell of a story. And you know what? They do a damn good job.

Spider-Man: Homecoming presents a problem that Marvel and it’s tightly-connected Marvel Cinematic Universe has been able to avoid… until now. Having not yet relaunched any of the Marvel Cinenamatic characters, Marvel hasn’t had to deal with recasting and repackaging the same old stories. Working with Sony, there’s no doubt this is a MCU movie, and not only because of the appearances of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau), and a cameo so good I wouldn’t think of ruining it here. For the most part, writer-director Jon Watts and his five (FIVE!?) other screenwriters succeed in building on the character’s small role in Captain America: Civil War.

{ 0 comments }

Maybe I just have Spider-Man fatigue, but I’m finding it hard to get excited for the character’s seventh appearance in movies in the last 15 years. The new trailer shows us a bit more of Spidey’s (Tom Holland) relationship with Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and the villain of the movie in the Vulture (Michael Keaton). Spider-Man: Homecoming opens in theaters on July 7th.

The follow-up to last month’s issue of Matt Murdock‘s gambling adventures in Macau features a Far East team-up between Daredevil and Spider-Man. Given his trust of Daredevil (because of the unexplained memory wipe Daredevil performed on everyone who knew his secret identity which Spider-Man can sense but not explain), Spidey does have some concerns about what his fellow vigilante is after in Macau and Hong Kong. However, that doesn’t stop the fun the two have together performing a heist and then chasing the plunder Daredevil has spent a considerable amount of effort to retrieve.
