Although in Spain we will have to wait until next week 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' will be released in the United States and the first official reviews have arrived; Mostly positive. With a 7.4 average on Metacritic and a 7.7 on Rotten Tomatoes from, respectively, 23 and 58 reviews, 'Homecoming' will premiere with critical backing similar to that recently obtained by 'Wonder Woman' in DC, which Is becoming one of the main successes of the genre.
The main challenge of the new director and his new protagonist, Jon Watts and Tom Holland, was how to offer something new of a personage so beloved and well-known of Marvel but that already takes three versions (with its sequels) in fifteen years. And more being, at this point, so saturated with stories of the origins of a hero. Comparisons have been inevitable, but it seems that 'Homecoming' has successfully met the challenge thanks to a new approach to the character: closer to teenagers than ever before.

But the daily life of teenage life could run the risk of catching the entire film. Even though Leah Grenblatt has enjoyed the film, she tells them in Entertainment Weekly: "In a city where citizens seem to accept the Avengers as a fact of everyday life [Peter] may seem ordinary to the point of confusing The argument ... much less a arachnid with superpowers than an adorable puppy with special powers.
More controversial about the end of the third act, where the critics do not agree.
