Ever since Tom Holland debuted as Peter Parker in Captain America: Civil War, weâ€™ve been treated to a Spider-Man appearance every year in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 2019, however, brings us the Web-Slinger twice, as following his resurrection in Avengers: Endgame, heâ€™s now back for his second standalone MCU movie, Spider-Man: Far From Home.
The public is still two weeks away from getting to see Spider-Man: Far From Home on the big screen, but a select group of reporters, critics and other lucky individuals managed to see it early and have posted their reactions online. Starting off, CinemaBlendâ€™s own Sean Oâ€™Connell was effusive in his praise towards Far From Home, particularly the latter half of the movie.
Brandon Davis from Comicbook.com was also a big fan of Spider-Man: Far From Home, noting in follow-up tweets that Mysterio is one of the MCUâ€™s most entertaining characters and that as is the case with every MCU movie, you should stay through all of the credits.
On the more reserved side, Slashfilmâ€™s Ben Pearson found Spider-Man: Far From Home to be one of the more average MCU offerings, though he also acknowledged that the movie does â€œ an elaborate dance of leaning into and subverting expectations.â€�
Back to critical acclaim territory, ReelBlend co-host Kevin McCarthy declared that Spider-Man: Far From Home is now his favorite Spider-Man movie and said in another tweet that he hasnâ€™t been this excited to re-watch a movie since Jordan Peeleâ€™s Get Out and Us.
Germain Lussier from io9 counted himself among Spider-Man: Far From Homeâ€™s supporters, saying that it does a good job on building off what Avengers: Endgame delivered.
Mashableâ€™s Angie Han also agreed that Spider-Man: Far From Home was a worthy follow-up to Avengers: Endgame, and while it might not have hit as hard in some areas, it was still an enjoyable watch.
Finally, Kevin Polowy from Yahoo summarized his positive thoughts on Spider-Man: Far From Home thusly:
Spider-Man: Far From Home swings into theaters on July 2, so stay tuned to CinemaBlend for continuing coverage.
