109 – Spider-Man: Homecoming

We have a special episode early because it’s SPIDER-MAN! The newest film fits in with the MCU but also is its own thing. It’s really, really great. Funny. No Uncle Ben death– thank you! Teen angst. The Vulture and why he’s awesome. Just give all your stuff to Marvel, Sony (and Fox).

Minor plot spoilers, but nothing major.  We will do a spoiler-filled deep dive in a few weeks.

The moral dimensions of the debate. Loyalty. Did Brooke watch a different movie from Andy? Cap is the arrogant, shortsighted one.

All 10 heroes get a character arc. The quiet, talky moments in between the action. The comedy tempers the depressing parts. The Empire Strikes Back of the MCU.

Brooke gives this a 8.5 or 9, Andy and Adam are both at 10.
