YAMP: Spider-Man: Homecoming
Phase 3, Episode 4
Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man joins the MCU in his brand new, stand-alone (sorta) movie. It's Spider-Man: Homecoming starring Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei, Zendaya and Michael Keaton as Vulture. Directed by John Watts.
Mike and Pat discuss the main ways they enjoyed this return to form Spider-Man from the comics, even though they start mixing alternate worlds with certain characters. Pat isn't a fan of M.J. actually being Michelle and not Mary-Jane even through Peter doesn't meet Mary-Jane until after High School and his real love is Gwen Stacy! (Okay, calm down, Pat) And Mike pines over more stand-alone films where cramming in connections to the MCU doesn't impair the storytelling.
But they both love Michael Keaton portrayal of Vulture, a sympathetic villain, who deserves another crack at the web-slinger in future stories.
