Welcome To the Marvel Movie Universe Spidey!

Well its official. No, we don’t know 100% of the details but Spider-Man will officially be introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

This has been a long time coming. Spider-Man is in the top 3 most known super heroes in the whole world. He is easily Marvel’s top dog and has been well… for a long ass time. He appeals to kids, adults… everyone. He has one of the best and most known rogue galleries in comics period (only one better is Batman) including the likes of Green Goblin, Hobgoblin, Rhino. Doc Ock, Vulture, Venom, Carnage, The Jackal, Kraven the Hunter, Sandman, ect ect. Could we possibly have Goblin/Norman show up in say… an Avengers movie? Possibly Dark Reign? We can only hope…

And now we might actual get a good movie franchise for him. To be honest, I am not the biggest Spider-Man fan. His cartoon used to be awesome as a kid and his comics are sometimes epic… but I don’t follow his comics much anymore and his movies have been completely average in my view. Yes, even the beloved Toby Spider-Man. The reboot has been super hit or miss.. juggling between awesome and downright cringe worthy. So giving SOME control to Marvel is bound to improve things overall.

It also gives us a chance to see Spidey interact with the rest of the MCU, which could be cool as well. Could he be leading the Avengers after Infinity War? Maybe. Will this halt Sony’s desperate attempt at a Spidey Universe with the likes of “female spider-mans” and Sinister Six? We can only hope.

So where is what we do know in regards to the deal. And right now, I am only going to be positive because honestly, this news comes with some huge draw backs in my eyes.

1. Spider-Man will likely first appear in Captain America: Civil War. So, with the success of Winter Soldier + Iron Man in the movie + being post Age of Ultron + Spider-Man.. this movie is guaranteed to do over a billion dollars.

2. A new, rebooted Spider-Man will come July 27, 2017, moving Thor 3 from it spot and shifting everything forward.

3. Spider-Man is going back to high school and Garfield is OUT. That whole universe is out… we think.

Amazing Spider-Man 2 Review

Shadow’s Rating: 6/10– Not a bad movie, just could have been so much better. [EDIT- the more I think about this movie the more it disappoints me. ]

Shadow’s Theatrical Rating: 6/10
Shadow’s Rewatchability Rating: 5/10

Worth: Matinee ($6) + Used Blu Ray ($13) = $19

Rotten Tomatoe’s Rating: 55%, 5.9/10
Audience: 74%, 7.6/10

Plot in a Nut Shell: Peter Parker is juggling being Spider-Man and Peter Parker at the same time. The same relationship stuff that has happened in the Spider-Man movies happens. Oscorp is evil. BAD GUYS.

Spoiler Free Thoughts…

– I hate to start negative but this movie had so much potential. A TON of potential. Instead, it was diminished by a horrible pacing, the same old Parker/girl friend stuff, and fast tracking the Goblin story line instead of focusing on it OR pushing it back a movie and letting it fester a bit.

– I really feel that if the movie FOCUSED on Harry’s transformation, kept true to the source material a bit more in the end, cut out Rhino altogether… the movie woulda been a contender for best movie of the year. But some baffling decisions dropped it to its current rating.

– Sony is simply trying to world build way to much instead of focusing on the present. They want to make an “Avengers-esque” franchise… but they have one hero really. THE MOST POPULAR HERO IN THE WORLD NOT NAMED BATMAN. They should just focus on that… instead they use a ton of the movie on Peter’s parents bullshit and on Sinister Six bullshit. My lord, just focus on making a great Spider-Man movie time in and time out and you will make your money.

– The action scenes were pretty good. The first scene in the movie with pre-Rhino is entertaining and the other fights with Electro and Spidey were pretty good. The Goblin fight was so quick I barely remember it.

– ‘Rhino’ was an awful addition to the movie. Such a hammy performance.

– The Goblin stuff happened way too fast and instead should have been the focus of the movie. It could have been great and ended up rushed instead.

– I hate the Peter’s dad stuff. Hate it. Waste of 20 minutes.

– Spider-Man was perfect once again in this movie. Loved the movements, the inventive ways the webbing was used, his speed and reaction times, and the quips were excellent. Peter Parker on the other hand just doesn’t feel nerdy enough. He is too cool and hip.

– Peter/Gwen stuff was good… but way over done. Way too many scenes with the same stuff we have seen in other Spider-Man movies.

– Uncle Ben means nothing in this universe and that is kind of sad.

– Electro looked cool as hell in my opinion. His powers were really cool on screen. The actual character though of Dillion… needed more work. More screen time. Catching on to a theme here? Lots of stuff needed more screen time and it was wasted on world building.

– I thought Harry was acted well by whoever that actor is. Ijust wish there was more time to spend there.
