Thwip! John Pollock and Wai Ting review the sixteenth Marvel Cinematic Universe film, Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017).

We discuss the circumstances that led to Sony and Disney making an unprecedented agreement to bring Spidey to the MCU, the challenge they had of refreshing an overexposed franchise, the wonderful casting of Michael Keaton and Tom Holland, “the big twist” and lots more.

Synopsis from Google:

Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, young Peter Parker returns home to live with his Aunt May. Under the watchful eye of mentor Tony Stark, Parker starts to embrace his newfound identity as Spider-Man. He also tries to return to his normal daily routine — distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just a friendly neighborhood superhero. Peter must soon put his powers to the test when the evil Vulture emerges to threaten everything that he holds dear.

I’m really looking forward to Thor: Ragnarok, as I think it’s my favorite MCU movie. I plan on watching it to leave some feedback. You guys should have Brent Chittenden back on for this review. I really enjoyed when you guys had him on in the past.


Ragnarok is amazing. It’s not my favourite (GOG part 1 and Black panther and infinity war are better I think) but it’s a fun ride

Another awesome review guys. Always love the movie reviews where you into detail about the movie rather than doing a quick synopsis. Looking forward to Ragnarok.

Sort of interesting that it’s the most recent Spider-Man series, that focuses so much on technology and the modern day, that comes closest to replicating the original spirit of the Lee/Ditko character of Spiderman. (The way Peter interacts with his classmates, how him being Spiderman effects his relationships, the mistakes he makes as a hero that come back to accountability and responsibility, etc.). From the orchestral version of the 1960’s theme in the opening credits, I knew I was going to love this movie.

Also, Hero by Nickleback and Josey Scott is a banger, and would be perfectly suited to any scene in any movie. Don’t @ me.


I was doing other stuff while listening, did you guys go over the Donald Glover scene where they tease Miles. Also it’s clear Raw and Smackdown suck the life out of Wai, he is such a great guide for these

Edit: He just mentioned it while I kept listening

“Hero” is the best Nickleback song by a country mile & the song the world needed at the time…And the video was pretty cool to boot. :100:


The praise for Hero can only be attributed to the opening words of the song.


Ahem, Hero is credited to Chad Kroeger and Josey Scott. His name isn’t Nickelback. :laughing:


Apologies to Mr. Kroeger! I figured entire band was in on it.

Btw fellow patrons, Just listen to that vocal harmonization and tell me this song doesn’t slap
