I liked it. I wish it wasn't a 2 parter however. It doesn't really feel like there is enough natural story left to fill out a whole 2nd movie which makes me worried its going to be drawn out to justify it. The different spider people were neat although a few were kinda... a car? really?
I don't really know what the movie is trying to say yet? Miles is very much against the idea of canon but so far all shown evidence is that violating canon destroys that timeline. I get not being able to swallow having to let people die but he acts like there is no proof after being shown two worlds both effected by canon being broken. We know it can't be blamed on Spot either given one happens before he even manages to cross the barrier between worlds. Miles Prowler (not be be confused with Miles Prower) seems very angry with Miles. The only conclusion I can draw is that perhaps him and his Uncle were trying to steal from that lab the spider got ported out of and things went bad leading to his fathers death. There isn't really another satisfying narrative reason for both of them to be so mad at Miles and so indifferent about another version of Jefferson dying. Okay well scratch that, It was pointed out to me that Spots little backstory shows that the spider had already gotten out and was about to bite earth 42 miles while he was in the middle of class but the Spot grabbed it from that dimension.
Also worst parent awards all around this movie. Gwens dad pointing a gun at her and trying to arrest her, Peter B Parker taking a baby into battle, and Jessica Drew getting into combat while pregnant. I guess technically shes not a parent yet, but she isn't helping her odds on ever being one. Just bad. Bad bad bad.
I do have to wonder however about the idea of having a bunch of reality hopping spider people when your so concerned with canon however.
Was neat seeing Donald Glover get to be Prowler, felt like we missed out on that in the MCU. Miss Liv, I know there was a deleted scene where she got hit with a bus but thats technically not canon so I want more of her. She was such a fun variant!
we're able to cuss now Caldwin, most of us are old enough to have kids who can buy beer. LOL Anywho... I also just kind of watched this... they're doing my man 2099 dirty in this, but oh well, marvel's been doing that for decades now.... anywho. I thought it was an okay film, I'll have to wait until the next part comes out in 2027 to know if it sticks the landing
edit: also it was nice to see spectacular spider-man
I mean, I don't want to turn a Spiderman discussion into an auto-censor discussion. But it was a cluster f-bomb. Some got censored but some didn't. Not sure if the auto censor just was able to notice so many in quick succession or what.
I really, really liked it. I saw it over the summer with my daughter, and we had a great time.
Something I noticed about the movie - I don't know if it was the way they told the story, or if it was just the spot I was in, but the (mother-hugging?) cliffhanger didn't bother me. I'm not spinning up wondering what'll happen next. I've got an idea of where the next part of the story will start, I don't know for sure where it'll go after that, and I'm cool with it. With the Avengers movies I was always getting into a guessing game of how things fit into the overall story, but with this, I'm just along for the ride, and I'm having fun with it.
It's on Netflix now so I wasted no time watching it yesterday. I went into it knowing it was Part 1 so the cliffhanger didn't bother me. Anyway, I loved both the twists about Miles and his powers and overall I thought the whole thing was a roller coaster of fun. The only thing that really bothered me is it feels like Miggy's role could have been filled by pretty much any Spider-Man and he didn't really feel like any Miguel O'Hara I'm familiar with. Just kinda generic I guess.
That's true. Spiderverse Miguel wasn't the 2099 comic version I read in. Even Layla wasn't Marilyn Monroe looking. Easy answer would be Multiverse but, bts, why did they choose him and mess with the 2099 comic world? But cool thing is it totally made him popular.
