Marvel films seem a nightmare to make. Everything always seems to be last minute changes while in production and they just wing it.
This is so true. It was easily one of the best scenes in the film.Like the fight scene between Tom and Goblin in the apartment was probably the most tension I’ve ever felt in a MCU film. It’s the first time the characters have felt in danger and Willem’s laugh while Tom was punching the fuck out of him was truly unhinged. It was an incredible scene
Nobody can really answer that without knowing what you did and didn't miss the first time! I'd say just go in and enjoy the spectacle of it, without trying to look out for all the little easter eggs and nods to other movies. There's plenty time to do that when it comes out on digital/blu-ray.I’m going for a second viewing tomorrow. Anything I should look out for that I might have missed the first time?
I'd definitely recommend paying attention to the scene where the Multiverse is tearing apart. People have mentioned that they recognize certain figures passing through the tears, but I literally didn't see anything specific.Anything I should look out for that I might have missed the first time?
I believe No Way Home is set in 2023 and Hawkeye is in 2024.I watched this today and managed to avoid all spoilers in the lead up to it. I thought it was incredible overall. I loved every bit about it. I also wondered if Hawkeye would have made some quick cameo to align the timelines when Spider-Man was in and around the Rockerfeller centre but that’s whatever.
I hope this isn’t the last we see of Tom Holland. He’s been brilliant as Spider-Man.
Interesting interview with the scriptwriters. Andrew and Toby didn’t join the project until December 2020 (two months after filming first began) and they wrote most of the script without having any idea which actors were going to agree to come back.
They also apparently only started brainstorming and thinking about how to deal with the identity reveal from Far From Home once the film was done. I found this fascinating as I always assumed Marvel had these things planned out years in advance, especially when leaving stories on a cliffhanger.
It sounds like the production stage was a mess and it could have gone terribly wrong so easily. I am pleased they were able to pull it off.
I ended up noticing this too as I saw it tonight. It felt so... unpopulated, which really hampered the feeling of scale to the whole thing. Even on the highway when Doc Oc attacks, I feel like we barely saw anyone running for their lives and even that was a convenient way of having a fight in a space that seemed full of people when it was really just full of empty cars. Not to mention Electro going out into the countryside from New York City to suck electricity. I also felt there was a lot of green screen for scenes that didn't really require it. Like... were Peter and Happy even in that graveyard together at the end? The lighting looked so strange. I understand it was probably hard, but you really understand how difficult things have been in the last two years when even Marvel films are showing signs of it.I think the film suffers from being filmed during the lockdown, beyond the two scenes with his fellow students everything felt really insular and the sets felt quite restrictive.
Happy’s Condo, Empire State Building/Scaffolding, the schools roof. . . Coming off of Homecoming and Far From Home that really took advantage of NY and multiple European cities the film looked a little like it was all on a soundstage with a few too many repeated sets.
But that’s just nitpicking, they did an amazing job considering the restrictions in place and the apparent challenges during production.
It's 4th for Marvel at the moment, behind Endgame, Black Panther and Infinity War. But it should go to 3rd today or tomorrow and it's now guaranteed to end up 2nd.It’s now overtaken Avengers and Age of Ultron, and is the third-highest grossing Marvel film (after Endgame and Infinity War), and eighth highest-grossing film of all time.
I’m talking worldwide, where it’s about $200m ahead of Black Panther already. No other solo film has ever surpassed an Avengers film, let alone two of them!It's 4th for Marvel at the moment, behind Endgame, Black Panther and Infinity War. But it should go to 3rd today or tomorrow and it's now guaranteed to end up 2nd.
I’d be here for Sony making The Amazing Spider-Man 3 to provide some proper closure to the character.
Have Emma Stone return as Spider-Gwen; somehow travelling to the same universe because of Strange’s spell. Or bring back Felicity Jones and have her become Black Cat because I have been waiting for a long time for her to show up on the big screen…
