Netflix has added one of Marvel’s best and most underrated films

Our, er, Netflix-Sense is tingling

Now that you’ve seen Avengers: Endgame sixteen times in the cinema, you might want to go back and rewatch some of the previous Marve Cinematic Universe entries – and conveniently, Netflix has just added one of the most underrated.

Spider-Man: Homecoming, the first MCU film to focus on Spidey, came out in 2017 and sparked pure adoration for Tom Holland — the third Peter Parker since the turn of the millennium, surpassing Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.

Indeed, across Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man’s moments on-screen often packed the most humour, tension and emotional resonance. Homecoming also features Michael Keaton at his absolute best, absolutely nailing his sinister villain role as Vulture. Of course, Robert Downey Junior also turns up as the show-stealing Tony Stark.

And yes, Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse has since come out and claimed the title of Official Best Spider-Man Film of All Time. But Homecoming is pretty damn great.

The sequel to Homecoming, Far From Home, is coming later this summer – complete with Jake Gyllenhaal as fishbowl-headed classic Spidey villain Mysterio – so now is the perfect time to reacquaint yourself with your friendly neighbourhood web-slinger.
