Spider-Man: Homecoming - 20 WTF Moments

Wait, did Marvel just troll us all?!

By now, the majority of the world will know that Spider-Man: Homecoming is a transformative addition to the Spider-Man movie franchise. Not only does it offer the best Spidey we've yet seen on the big screen, it also makes a good claim to the best Peter Parker and one of the very best Spidey villains in the shape of Michael Keaton's Vulture.

To think there was any cynicism about the value of Marvel and Sony sitting down to thrash out a deal to share the character's movie rights is now completely baffling. Not only is this the best possible launch platform for Spider-Man in the MCU, but it will also go some way to fixing Sony's bad PR issues (particularly around their mistreatment of the property since Spider-Man 2).

And hopefully, this success might mean that the MCU deal for Spidey will be extended further than the current deal. Because it's very clear that the wall-crawling hero is in good hands now he's home.

It's undoubtedly a five star film, but that doesn't mean it isn't full of moments that will leave you scratching your head or completely side-swiped in shock. And that's actually truly great thing if Marvel and Sony want us to continue talking about it and seeing it multiple times...
