We've a few weeks yet until 'Spider-Man Far From Home' hits screens. But the early word is it's great!
'Spider-Man Far From Home' sees Tom Holland take on the titular superhero for a fifth time.
The critically acclaimed 2017 feature 'Spider-Man Homecoming' was his first solo outing. This latest takes place pretty much immediately after the events of 'Avengers: Endgame.'
In 'Far From Home', Peter Parker, still in mourning, takes a long-earned break. He heads on a trip around Europe with his classmates and romance starts to bloom with MJ (Zendaya). However the holiday is cut short when Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) recruits Peter to team up with Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal).
The social media embargo for the film has now lifted and the first reactions are in.
Critics are calling 'Far From Home' one of the best Spider-Man movies ever made. They've also said it's a fitting follow-up to 'Endgame' and that Gyllenhaal - who can do no wrong - is note-perfect as Mysterio.
Here were some of the reactions from reviewers and fans on Twitter:
#SpiderManFarFromHome is funny, exciting, romantic, goofy & follows HOMECOMING in being this brilliant ground-level look at Spidey's world & how the events of #AvengersEndgame impacted everyday life. Lots of twists & turns, plus some adorable summer romances, too. I'm a big fan pic.twitter.com/NUX0f8YFM0

SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME is so good. So heartfelt. So action-packed. So genuinely shocking in a surprising number of ways. If Tom Holland is the future of the #MCU then its in good hands. #SpiderManFarFromHome

A reaction tweet: #SpiderManFarFromHome is wonderful. It’s funny and clever and filled with smart twists. (It also made me have incredibly visceral memories of class trips of yore.) I didn’t leave the theater sad! I am not worried about superheroes’ emotional states! Zendaya!!

And obviously with Mysterio involved, there are some pretty bizarre scenes. Honestly I always kind of assumed a Mysterio movie wasn’t really possible, but Jon Watts and company pulled it off.

Spider-Man: Far from Home is an extremely fun, cleverly executed, and frequently hilarious culmination of the MCU’s wall-crawler’s journey so far. Some very sweet moments, sly commentary and deft action set-pieces throughout #SpiderManFarFromHome pic.twitter.com/5sAmxh4E3p

#SpiderMan #FarFromHome is an absolute home run. It’s SO much fun. It’s huge in itself and for the future of the MCU in the most surprising ways. Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, just a lethal, awesome combo!!
I cannot wait to see this movie again. And again. pic.twitter.com/0hYJvKkdjN

Apparently, the post credits scenes are unmissable.
I don’t think I’ve been this excited to re-watch a film since Jordan Peele’s Get Out & Us. Watts masterfully layers incredible action, storytelling and character development into a film that will be a whole new experience on the 2nd watch. 2 of the best end credits scenes ever.

#Spiderman #FarFromHome is SUCH a good movie! Jake Gyllenhaal suits up & completely embraces his role in its entirety & he’s clearly having a blast. This is such a refreshing film after the heaviness of #EndGame. The post-credit scenes are a MUST WATCH & will blow your dang mind! pic.twitter.com/wcTh9iHaYq
