Great, now I'm not sure if I can live a full life without reading that one

There was also the time Jameson convinced Tony Stark to lend him his very first suit of armor so he could go after Spidey and be a hero himself. The strip's illustrators had ZERO communication with each other, the Sunday artist drew the classic golden armour Iron Man suit, while the weekday artist drew it in red and gold.

I remember that. For some reason the Iron Man suit magically got a Hitler mustache.

I sincerely am hoping for Kraven, Scorpion, or Mysterio to be among the top villains going forward.

...It does make me wonder on one thing: Sony's Venom movie. If it actually gets released (given info over the past few months), what if Marvel wanted to use him but now cannot?

A similar problem was The Batman cartoon. Wasn't there some sort of "Bat Embargo" that prevented Two-Face, Mad Hatter, and a few others from appearing due to the Nolan films?

I'm not advocating for Venom. I think he's a solid character though overrated. Just curious here.

Off-topic, I really have to ask this.

Why do fans like Miles Morales so much? He's brought up so much whenever Spiderman is in discussion?

I ask the same thing about Spider-Gwen sometimes

That said, I like Miles, he's one of the few genuine breakout characters the franchise has produced in recent years and sort of takes up the burdens of the upstart and troubled teenage Spider-Man that so many readers continuously crave but can't get with the ''original'' anymore

Miles Morales is awesome, I don't know why but he just works and doesn't feel as pushed as all the other PC Marvel did with female thor and the black teen iron man. When it adds something to the story and it doesn't feel like a mandate for the sake of having diversity most people don't really care as they're introduced to awesome characters.


I don't know how I feel about Spider-Gwen, to me she feels like a rip-off of Spider-Girl who I very much liked. So yeah while Spider-Gwen is ok, I would've preferred more May Parker instead.

He could but he's James Gordon in the DCEU.

It helps that Miles feels natural because he existed before Marvel went full PC/Clickbait mode.

Early Spider-Man: Homecoming Reactions Call it Best Spidey Film Yet

Quote:
When Sony’s most recent attempt to reboot the Spider-Man franchise with The Amazing Spider-Man failed to perform at the box office, rumors began swirling that the rights for the fan-favorite character had finally been returned to Marvel Studios. That wasn’t exactly true, of course, although the two studios went on to surprise everyone when they announced they’d joined together to bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And while Tom Holland’s Spider-Man already debuted as the web-slinger in last year’s Captain America: Civil War, his first solo film as Spider-Man won’t hit theaters until next month. Thankfully, for those eager to see a proper Spider-Man film set within the MCU, early reactions for Homecoming seem to suggest that the film could be the best Spider-Man film to date.
And some lite spoilers/casting confirmation:


And with that, I'm going to try to stay away from any more news of SMH until I go see it opening weekend; I've heard a lot of plot details and cameos and stuff, and none of that really bothers me, but I don't want to see any serious spoilers

I'm quite curious to find out what Tony's supporting cast are in the movie for...

Including Mary Jane Watson and Jonah Jameson would make this movie better with their inclusion. Any sign that either is present?

Someone claimed a while back this:

Spoiler:
Zenedaya's character, Michelle, was actually Mary Jane. Not sure on that.

No word on Jonah though.

This movie is gradually turning into Iron Man 4. Just kidding but they'd better not include too much Tony Stark and his environment.

Iron Man had an entire trilogy plus the leading role in both Avengers movies. Also Captain America 3.

Spiderman Homecoming would be Iron Man 7, if we're still counting.

I read that RDJ was only on set for 3 days so his role can't be that big. More than likely the majority of his scenes are already in the trailers and tv spots. Hopefully.

Very true. The rest is for the sake of word count.

According to people who've seen it, her full name is Michelle Jones and her friends call her ''MJ''.


If that's true, I'm out. I don't care how ''good'' it is [it probably won't age well like every MCU movie anyway]

That's what I've heard as well. From a story point of view, I like it.
