The more these movies become the Disney MCU and the less Marvel Studios (which I guess is only a name now), the less I like them. I can see how folks less concerned with my complaints could enjoy this movie. I just lament when thinking back to where Marvel Studios started. We're watching (and enjoying) the Toby Maguire Spiderman 2. Toby was a little old for the part but had the role down cold. A little bit of silly romance, a well-developed villain, good supporting roles (Incl J.K.), nice pacing. The world isn't facing destruction, you didn't have to see 4 other movies to understand it, Jon Favreau doesn't do an obligatory cameo nor Nick Fury, there's none of the stifling Disney idealogical and social twist, the plot makes sense and doesn't just fit the scene, and the CGI is as absolutely good as it has to be. So while maybe Far works nicely with the new generation, it's by-the-numbers agenda, plot and production have already grown very old for me.
