Ever since he was introduced last year in Captain America: Civil War, many Marvel fans and casual moviegoers have been looking forward to Tom Holland's Spider-Man leading his own movie, and that time is almost upon us. Spider-Man: Homecoming is still a week from hitting theaters, but early screenings have already been providing an idea of what overall reception to the movie will be. Last week the first reactions to the Web-Slinger's MCU movie poured in, and tonight was the official premiere in Los Angeles. Here's what some people are saying about Spider-Man: Homecoming after the evening's event.
Next is ET Now's Ash Crossan, who appreciated the movie's jokes, which is good to hear considering how important humor is to Spider-Man.
Eric Goldman from IGN was pleased with how faithfully Spider-Man: Homecoming adapted one of his favorite fictional characters.
Roth Cornet from Screen Junkies complimented Tom Holland's performance as the arachnid-themed hero while she was hanging out Spider-Man: Homecoming premiere party that took place afterwards.
Finally, it wasn't just reporters and critics who shared their Spider-Man: Homecoming experiences tonight. Beauty and the Beast's Josh Gad clearly enjoyed the movie, as evidenced by his praise towards Holland, director Jon Watts and others.
We'll have to wait and see how the public reacts to Spider-Man: Homecoming, but tonight's premiere indicates that like with last week's screenings, most of the folks in attendance enjoyed the Wall-Crawler's sixth theatrical movie. Set a few months after the events of Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man: Homecoming follows Peter Parker balancing his life as a normal high school student with his masked superhero duties, which have been made more complicated with the emergence of a gang armed with advanced technology that it is led by The Vulture.
