'Spider-Man: Homecoming': How Much of a Game Changer Is the Ending?

Avengers Age of Ultron- TV Spot 2 Tom Holland got real about getting bullied for dancing as a kid

For all of its strengths, "Homecoming's" biggest success may be how it manages to avoid stumbling into the same third-act trap that catches so many comic book movies: where the hero, origin story in place, inevitably faces off against a generic opponent in a sequence that carries lots of flash but little narrative weight.

Thanks to a quick opening prologue, we know an embittered contractor named Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton) has been hoarding and honing the alien technology ever since the aftermath of the Avengers' battle in NY.

An invigorating joy from beginning to end, "Spider-Man: Homecoming" lets you feel Spidey's nervous joy as he ducks into an alley to change into his uniform and swing across the rooftops, chasing the righteous thrills of the Manhattan skyline. Even Spider-Man's suit has an Oscar victor behind its voice (Jennifer Connelly).

The movie has also consistently dominated social media in recent weeks, aided by a clever marketing campaign that plays on Holland's teenage angst.

From there we are introduced to the mundane life of Peter Parker, played perfectly by Tom Holland.

And then there's the glorified cameo appearances of Robert Downey Jr.as Tony Stark, who's more playboy-jerk here than ever in limited screen time as a pseudo-father figure.

Tensions Rise as Senate Healthcare Bill Languishes During Recess
Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, suggested it may take some time before McConnell can win enough support for the GOP legislation. Find your senators at an Independence Day parade and wave your "no health care repeal!" sign.

What's next in the Gulf crisis
State-run Qatar Petroleum has said it plans to increase natural gas production by 30 percent over the next several years. Qatar had earlier responded to the deadline with defiance, calling the demands " unrealistic and is not actionable".

The film is overflowing with stellar talent, even in the smallest of roles and not counting the Marvel loaners in Robert Downey Jr.

In the Ultimate Marvel universe, Aaron Davis becomes the villain known as the Prowler, a character that has actually been around the main comic continuity since the 1960s. There's also Ned (Jacob Batalon), Peter's equally dorky best friend.

Feige mentions that the events of Civil War set up the opening of Homecoming and Peter Parker's character. Listening to Peter's classmates discussing FMK about the Avengers is just one of many laugh out loud moments. But though the new film has nothing to do with the five live-action Spider-Man adaptations that preceded it, it still draws on decades of Spider-comics.

He's a relatable, everyday kid who can stop a bus with his bare hands.

Sony's last Spider-Man movie, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, opened in May 2014 to $8.7 million in previews on its way to a $91.6 million domestic debut (the Andrew Garfield-starring pic eventually earned $709 million worldwide). The answer is that it takes the world's greatest superhero and does it right.

Eventually, around the time Peter Parker died, Prowler broke into an abandoned Oscorp lab as part of a heist - and OsCorp's genetically altered spider, which gave Peter his powers, crawled into his duffel bag without his knowledge. If you haven't seen the movie yet, quit reading now because there are spoilers ahead.
