Spider-Man: Far From Home
Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) is the second Spider-Man movie made by Marvel Studios and the 23rd movie of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
The film was directed by Jon Watts, who previously directed Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), and features the performances of Tom Holland as Peter Parker / Spider-Man, Zendaya as MJ, Jake Gyllenhaal as Quentin Beck / Mysterio and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, among others.
This time, Peter Parker will travel to Europe with his classmates where he will experience adventures in a world after the blip, therefore allowing us to appreciate a little more closely the effect that the events of Avengers: Endgame (2019) had in the everyday life of the people in the MCU.
The movie is full of action and funny moments and shows us new faces of Tom Holland‘s Spidey, such as his new and improved skills, his feelings for MJ, his relationship with Nick Fury and the great weight that falls on his shoulders after the events of Avengers: Endgame.
Spider-Man: Far From Home turns out to be an entertaining movie and doesn’t need to position itself among the best titles of the MCU to be remembered. The introduction of Mysterio is enough for the hero’s fans to enjoy one of the most interesting characters in the Spidey universe, through stunning scenes full of amazing special effects and editing of the highest quality.
Despite this, when evaluated as the closure of the Phase 3, the film feels weak and leaves a taste similar to the one left by Ant Man and the Wasp (2018), which was released just after Avengers: Infinity War (2018). On this occasion, the weight on Spider-Man: Far From Home is greater, since it is the title that closes a crucial season for Marvel Studios and open the gates to Phase 4 of the MCU.
