Yesterday I went to see the latest Spiderman movie. As someone who has collected comic books and even hugged Stan Lee, these movies are some of my absolute favorites. Tom Holland is genuinely the best version yet, but this movie? Holy shit, what a ride!
Of course Peter Parker is responsible for most of the mayhem in this movie, but Doctor Strange is equally at fault for the madness unfolding. We first see the results of a miscast spell with Doc Oct, and to my joy, we see ALL the villains from the first two universes come together. In an effort to make his aunt May proud, Peter fights Doctor Strange to cure the villains of their eccentricities. This doesn't go as planned at all, resulting in some pretty terrible moments of ugly crying.
One of the greatest parts of the movie is that not only do MJ and Ned get a chance to shine and work together, they are key to joining the Peter Parkers together when Ned discovers he can use Doctor Strange's casting ring. Seeing Topher Grace and Andrew Garfield unite with our beloved Tom Holland and to see them learn from each other, encourage each other, help each other grow was just so heartwarming.
I think the best part of the movie comes when the two previous Spidermen make jokes about their universes. Topher Grace and Andrew Garfield really brought their versions back to the screen making me laugh and cry at their quips and struggles. When Andrew's Spiderman saved MJ, it gave him a sense of peace after losing Gwen. Topher Grace's Spiderman threw himself in harms way to keep Tom Holland's Spiderman from making a terrible mistake.
I won't say how the movie ends because that is a HUGE lead to the next one (Doctor Strange and the Multiverse), but I will say somehow Marvel ended this one by ripping out my heart and then making me laugh and feel hopeful.
All in all, this is the BEST Spiderman yet. I loved everything about it. My friend said it best: "It's a Spider Fan's wet dream." Can't wait to see what's next in the MCU.
