We’re back and talking about the next movie in our summer series: Spider-Man Homecoming!
From the Official Site
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. He finds himself 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.
As always, we talk the nitty gritty of the whole movie and spoil everything! Highlights include discussing how high is too high for Peter Parker, Keaton once being team DC and now entering Marvel as a kick ass bad guy, and the amazing casting job overall in the movie. Don’t miss our insights!
Until next time, get your geek on!
