Amid the countless superhero movies that have graced the silver screen, there’s one character who has risen above all others: Spider-Man. The web-slinger appeals not to a particular group or demographic but to anyone who’s ever felt like an underdog in a world where social hierarchy is hard to break out of. As a result, he’s become more than just a hero; he’s also a symbol of youth and immortality.
Tom Holland’s scene-stealing turn as the teenaged Marvel icon breathed new life into a franchise that had started to lag, with Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) establishing the character as a bona fide blockbuster. Since then, he’s continued to appear in multiple Avengers films and the animated Into the Spider-Verse (2018), as well as his own standalone movie, Spider-Man: Far From Home (2022).
Although some of the jokes in this video don’t quite land (and it definitely feels more like a John Hughes film with Spider Man perfectly stuffed in), it’s worth watching for the acting alone. Tom Holland is incredible and really gives both Peter Parker and Spider-Man their own personalities. Robert Downey Jr. and Michael Keaton also bring their A-game in this wildly entertaining flick.
