Spider-Man: Far From Home was the fifth and deal ending movie to complete the induction of Spider-man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and boy do I hope that the Sony/Marvel cooperation can continue!!! This movie was the best parts of all of the previous Spider-Men with the added bonus of sharing the hero-verse with the rest of the MCU.
The internet speculated how this final film of the MCU Phase 3 would address the events in Avengers: Infinity War and Avenger: Endgame. I wasn’t disappointed. It felt like reading a Spider-Man comic. The comedy of the Spider-Man writing really came through, especially in how Peter and the rest of Mid-Town his peers dealt with being “blipped” away and back again five years later.
The villain in the movie *****SPOILER AERT*******, Mysterio, is a classic Spider-Man baddie. The comic books version of Mysterio is given a mystical power set, while here we see the same result from harnessing advanced tech introduced in Captain America: Civil War (see B.A.R.F.). That’s something that the MCU has down to a science, the callback. We see it several times in this film. This movie could just be one giant callback if it didn’t introduce some cool new story lines.
All in all, Spider-Man: Far from Home was a great and fun movie. I could be biased though…I’m a sucker for the MCU and Spider-Man has always been a personal favorite. As for whether or not the Sony/Marvel deal will continue, I think it will be green lit after both companies are done counting their spider-bucks!
Two flippers up!
