Early Reactions to 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' are Thrilled by the New Web-Slinger

Because Tom Holland is now the third actor to play Spider-Man in the past ten years, and because the recent Amazing Spider-Man movies were so underwhelming, this summer's Spider-Man: Homecoming has a lot riding on it. Based on first reactions from critics/writers who saw early screeners, any concerned Spidey fans should have nothing to worry about.

While there's still a press embargo until the end of the month - which means no full movie reviews can come out - some restrictions on social media have been lifted. Which means a ton of film critics just collectively tweeted out their thoughts on the movie, and all of them think Homecoming is a spectacular Spider-Man movie. While some were more positive than others, the general consensus seems to be: Tom Holland is a great Peter Parker, Michael Keaton is a great Vulture, the high school stuff is funny, and the movie deserves the tons of money it will inevitably make.

Oddly, nobody mentions Iron Man, even though Robert Downey Jr. was such a huge marketing presence. And importantly, despite how much the trailers seemed to reveal, there are still surprises we haven't seen yet. Considering how that was a major concern among many fans, it's a relief to hear the story isn't as clear cut as the marketing made it look. Here's a sampling of those glowing first reactions, starting with current Spider-Man comic writer Dan Slott:

















And some notes about the post-credit scenes, for good measure - there's only two, as opposed to the whopping five scenes from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. No Venom either, in case you heard a rumor Tom Hardy might make a cameo (we certainly didn't make that claim):



Hopefully you're just as excited as all these folks, because this Spidey is sticking around for a few more moviesSpider-Man: Homecoming comes out July 7, 2018.
