With the annual corporate extravaganza that is E3 beginning this weekend, time to work out what’s coming up. The conference is likely to be comparatively weak this year, as we still wait for news of the new console generation to break properly. There are a few fun reveals planned, but it’s always worth remembering that all of this is just fun marketing. Everything we see should be treated with healthy scepticism and an understanding that what we see is not what we will necessarily get.
Venom is not a good movie. Venom is not a well made movie. It fails to understand plot structure, basic theme escapes it and the characters are somehow awful, uncompelling and forgettable all at once. Venom is a fascinating trainwreck in slow motion that I watched with my mouth agape and my hands clawing at my face.
Spider-Man is the best superhero game that exists right now. It earns this title for so many reasons. Not just the superbly realised world of New York. Not just the simple yet challenging character action combat. Not even the intuitive webswinging that anchors the whole game. Spider-Man is the best superhero game because it understands the genre better than any so far. It is a game about being a hero, and doing good.
It’s impossible to divorce Spiderman Homecoming from the circumstances of its creation. After Sam Raimi’s Spiderman 1&2 were excellent, 3 was merely okay and then the miserable Amazing Spiderman 1+2 came on to the scene, it was hard to deal with the fact that the world’s most popular superhero wasn’t going to be good on the silver screen again. Then, Sony and Marvel managed to come together just before Captain America: Civil War to bring the webslinger back to our screens as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now, we get a Co-production, where Sony and Marvel have combined efforts to get Peter Parker back to come “home” with Marvel. The strain on the production to get everything under one umbrella shows. Spiderman Homecoming. It’s a little rushed, slightly scrappy, but it’s a good Spiderman film nonetheless.
We finally have some idea of what the plot for Spiderman homecoming will be, thanks to the new trailer. Let’s break it down.
