As promised last week, the first reactions from Spider-Man: Far From Home have arrived. They all unanimously praise the movie, with Tom Holland’s portrayal of the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man and Jake Gyllenhaal’s take on Mysterio being widely appreciated. In a somewhat peculiar turn of events though, the mid / post-credits scene is receiving high praise as well, with some reviewers heralding it as a very big step from Marvel.
It’s taken a while to comb through the reactions to avoid giving any spoilers away but now, without further ado, here are some spoiler-free anecdotes:
That said, it’s not all hunky-dory for our masked web-slinger since there were some negative reactions as well. Some of the complaints included it not being as special as Homecoming and that there’s too much going on to get in one go, a problem reviewers had with Andrew Garfield’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
While the optimistic reactions are somewhat expected given the nature of previews, I’m heavily curious now about that post-credits scene and what it entails; almost tempted to the point of wanting to figure out its contents. Does it throw Spider-Man into the MultiVerse? Connect it to Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse? Bring Venom into the mix? Pay a tribute to Sam Raimi / Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man AND Marc Webb / Andrew Garfield’s Amazing Spider-Man movies? Reveal the Avengers tower as the Baxter building? Or perhaps, and this could be more accurate, set up Norman Osborn as the big bad of the next decade?
But I’m going to hold off for another two weeks and I suggest you do the same. Be very careful of who you follow and what you read if you don’t want any Spider-Man: Far From Home spoilers knocking at your door. As always, being a fan of these movies, you can trust Appocalypse with delivering spoiler-free news and updates. And when spoilers are written, they will be marked as such. Of course the above guesses don’t count as spoilers since we don’t know which one is true, if at all.
