A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

    I don’t know why HH keeps posting these updates about when a movies ties The dark Knight and spider-man 2 when there isn’t even 200 reviews yet. Spider-man 2 has over 260 reviews and The Dark knight has over 300. By the time homecoming reaches that point it may fall below 94%. You guys did the same thing with Wonder Woman and it’s gone down to 92%. At least wait until the film has been out a few weeks.

    There’s no way it stays that high. Thom Holland is easily the best spiderman but that’s where the positives end. The story was lackluster, the supporting characters were forgettable, and the soundtrack was garbage. They have some work to do.

      Nah all the characters were great and memorable, the soundtrack was strong, the story was great and the action was awesome. Oh and the villain was incredible. 202 reviews so far, it’s staying that high. Also it did it without the woman card bump that WW got.
