The first chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was dubbed The Infinity Saga and Spider-Man: Far From Home is the epilogue to that epic eleven year journey. It is also the second Tom Holland Spider-Man movie and it covers the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame from the perspective of his take on Peter Parker. Within this final movie of Phase 3, the classic villain Mysterio is making his first live-action appearance, fishbowl and all. With the release date dawning at a rapid pace, the first reactions have finally surfaced online. Here’s what they say.
absolutely loved #SpiderManFarFromHome. Captures the spirit of the comics and mixes in some amazing movie magic. The second the film ended I wanted to watch it again. #JakeGyllenhaal is fantastic as Mysterio. pic.twitter.com/4ZYaS0L8mf— Steven Weintraub (@colliderfrosty) June 19, 2019
#SpiderMan #FarFromHome is an absolute home run. It’s SO much fun. It’s huge in itself and for the future of the MCU in the most surprising ways. Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, just a lethal, awesome combo!!— Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) June 19, 2019
I cannot wait to see this movie again. And again. pic.twitter.com/0hYJvKkdjN
#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— Erik Davis (@ErikDavis) June 19, 2019
Spider-Man: Far from Home is an extremely fun, cleverly executed, and frequently hilarious culmination of the MCU’s wall-crawler’s journey so far. Some very sweet moments, sly commentary and deft action set-pieces throughout #SpiderManFarFromHome pic.twitter.com/5sAmxh4E3p— Jim Vejvoda (@JimVejvoda) June 19, 2019
#Spiderman #FarFromHome is SUCH a good movie! Jake Gyllenhaal suits up & completely embraces his role in its entirety & he’s clearly having a blast. This is such a refreshing film after the heaviness of #EndGame. The post-credit scenes are a MUST WATCH & will blow your dang mind! pic.twitter.com/wcTh9iHaYq— Maude Garrett (@maudegarrett) June 19, 2019
#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.— Angie J. Han (@ajhan) June 19, 2019
#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— Matt Singer (@mattsinger) June 19, 2019
#SpiderManFarFromHome! What a fun, solid sequel. Tom Holland so incredibly charming, will watch him in any/all things. Jake Gyllenhaal gets way more to do than expected, clearly had a ball doing it. Also still loving Zendaya’s MJ.— Kara Warner (@karawarner) June 19, 2019
Didn’t LOVE #SpiderManFarFromHome as much as Homecoming but it’s still a rad take on bearing the weight of great expectations and a fun ode to teen romance. Tom Holland continues to be amazing, Zendaya’s MJ is just as cool as Shuri and Jake G’s an inspired choice for Mysterio. pic.twitter.com/nnu7BPjcFO— Brian Truitt (@briantruitt) June 19, 2019
Spider-Man: Far From Home made me smile from start to finish. Its got huge reveals and exciting set pieces but the way it builds off Endgame to to dive deeper into Peter’s emotions is really what make it soar. Mysterio also rules. I can’t wait to see it again. pic.twitter.com/FvP3B53MOX— Germain Lussier (@GermainLussier) June 19, 2019
Not using hyperbole: #FarFromHome is the best superhero movie of 2019. Yes, including #Endgame. Like #Homecoming the characters are funny/delightful, themes are very right now & it throws many a curveball at both Peter & the audience. 3rd act set piece is ingenious! Also #Cameos!— Max Evry (@maxevry) June 19, 2019
