Early social media reactions by select US critics who were lucky enough to catch an uber early Spider-Man: Far From Home press screening have been positive across the board. Critics are calling the film “funny,” “romantic,” and a “great followup to not just Spider-Man: Homecoming, but Avengers: Endgame too.” However, one critic did point out that the film could’ve used a little bit more hard emotions.
Man, I am beyond hyped for this movie. Ever since his debut in Captain America: Civil War, I’ve been a huge fan of Tom Holland’s version of Spider-Man. While Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2 is still my favourite Spidey movie, Tom Holland is hands down my favourite Peter Parker. Peter’s journey in the MCU hasn’t been an easy one. In Homecoming, he discovered that his date’s father is the villainous Vulture, in Infinity War, he gets dusted by the Mad Titan Thanos and in Avengers: Endgame, he loses his friend, mentor and father figure in Tony Stark. Spider-Man: Far From Home promises to deal with the aftermath of Endgame.
Check out these early Twitter reactions to Spider-Man: Far From Home:
#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

#SpiderManFarFromHome had the difficult task of following two epic Avengers movies AND Spider-Verse and succeeds by telling a smaller, classical story about Peter Parker caught between what he wants and what responsibility demands. Pure cat(spider)nip for Spidey fans like me. pic.twitter.com/G2a4p6YhAr

#SpiderManFarFromHome is the coda we needed after Endgame, a glimpse of how the world looks now that the dust has settled. Could maybe have gone a bit harder on P's emotional arc, but bursting with warmth and humor and awkward teen romance. 💕 Also: Jake G = perfect casting.

#SpiderManFarFromHome is a very worthy follow-up to the phenomenal #Homecoming. Tom Holland proves (once again) that he's the definitive Peter Parker, and his chemistry with @Zendaya is legitimately sweet and engaging.
