In 2015, news broke out that Spider-Man was being brought into the Marvel Cinematic universe and fans of the young neighbourhood superhero were ecstatic. In the 2016 Marvel film, Captain America: Civil War, we saw the new face of Peter Parker ( Spider-Man) played by Tom Holland, making an impressive entry after being recruited by Tony Stark (Iron Man) to join the Avengers Civil War. And now Tom Holland has a whole film to himself in Spider-Man: Homecoming releasing this friday worldwide.
In this reboot film, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) is back home after his extraordinary experience with the Avengers. He still lives with his aunt and is being closely watched by his new mentor/ tutor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr), who advises him to stay under the radar. He slowly gets back to his daily mundane life and his schooling, trying to strike a balance between his ordinary high school student image and his crime fighting endeavours. He is constantly abstracted by his urge to prove himself to be someone more than just a friendly neighbourhood superhero. Once he is back, spider-man also gets to keep his new swanky body-suit and the web-shooter combination powers that he is trying hard to still figure out. Everything is fun and light hearted until, Spider-Man encounters Vulture the super villian threatening to destroy everything that his dear to him.
