Elevator Pitch: In the aftermath of the Battle of New York (Avengers: Endgame) there is a lot of alien technology lying about which is being salvaged by a man who comes to be known as “Vulture” once he has developed a one man flying suit. Peter Parker, developing his Spiderman capabilities, sometimes with a suit developed by the Avengers, sometimes fights for justice and finds himself facing up to Vulture. At other times he is in High School trying to get together with a female student, and disguisign from the other students that he is a superhero.
Content: There is no sex or nudity, or drinking or smoking, I don’t think. Peter spends time developing his capabilities and inventing the sipder’s web stuff. He is in school, and I think is 16 years old, although commentaries disagree on this. He meets Iron Man/Tony Stark and gets the super Spider suit, which has a detachable flying bug which I liked. He lives with his Aunt May, from whom he tried to hide his alter-ego. He goes to Washington with a school team, but does not participate Spidering instead. There are some climactic events, one of them involving a ferry cut in two.
A View: I am not a fan of the Avengers. I am ready to accept that each fantasy film has to have its own logic, so there is no possibility of any logic in an environment which contains a Norse god and a Russian female assassin, to name but two, but other than that this outing went pretty well so I join everyone else in giving it a couple of ticks up.
I find that I have only reviewed on other Spiderman film, although I count that there have been seven, it was: The Amazing Spiderman.
