Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton) is almost out of business when the D.O.D.C (Department of Damage Control) takes over his operation to clean up the city through the U.S. government and Tony Stark's (Robert Downey Jr.) partnership. Furious at the thought of his downfall, he engages his employees to an illegal business by using Chitauri technology to build and sell advanced weapons. Eight years has passed and Peter Parker (Tom Holland) receives an unfortunate comment from Tony Stark after his short and amazing adventure with the Avengers. Tony says that he isn't ready to become a full Avenger but Peter Parker continues his studies at the Midtown School of Science and Technology. Bored of his normal high school life, he spends more of his time fighting crimes as Spider-Man, jeopardizing his performance at school. An incident reveals his identity to his best friend Ned (Jacob Batalon) one night as he gets back to his apartment after stopping criminals from robbing an ATM. He and Ned become partners when he discovers about Toomes and their crimes. Peter struggles in balancing his life as a high school boy and his crime-fighting adventures until Tony Stark finds out. He retrieves Peter's Spider-Man suit and explains that if he feels that he is a nobody without the suit, then he is not worthy of that Spider-Man suit. Peter Parker tries to have a normal life and even finds courage to ask Liz (Laura Harrier), his crush to go with him to the homecoming dance. Liz unbelievably says yes and Peter is overjoyed by this but to his sudden dismay, he learns that Liz's father is Adrian Toomes. Peter Parker decides to continue with his crime-fighting scheme without the Spider-Man suit that is sponsored by Stark.

Rotten Tomatoes approval rating: 92%  Critical Consensus says, "Spider-Man: Homecoming does whatever a second reboot can, delivering a colorful, fun adventure that fits snugly in the sprawling MCU without getting bogged down in franchise-building."

What makes it interesting?

Tom Holland is very interesting and he fits the Spider-Man role way much better than Tobey Maguire or Andrew Garfield. This is simply because he is just a normal-looking boy and is very young in real life unlike the Senior actors who took the superhero role. Tom didn't have to pretend like a high school student so everything in the film just came out naturally. He's a kid with a huge talent to entertain, and also wow the audience with his serious side. I think he's an adorable kid inside a man's body and he made Spider-Man really fresh as if there hasn't been any other film about it. I normally hate it when the characters and story in comics aren't preserved but this is the first movie that I have watched with so much deviation from the Spider-Man story and characters and I never had to complain even one bit. The visual effects was phenomenal, all thanks to Sony Pictures Imageworks, Digital Domain and the rest of the post-production crew. I'm sure Robert Downey Jr, Hon Favreau and the cameos of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Evans were big contributors to the success of Spider-Man Homecoming though even without any participation of the Avengers casts (and I'm saying this though I truly love Iron Man), I would've still supported and watched this film. I also like that the character of Aunt May isn't the normal 80-year-old because it made the story more natural for Peter Parker to have an Aunt that isn't two generations ahead. I honestly don't see why there was a sudden issue in social media about Marisa Tomei's casting as May Parker. Aunts should be younger and attractive and this film aimed to be naturalistic so someone who looks just like a bigger sister or mom to Peter Parker was a good change. I cringed a little when Michelle Jones (Zendaya) had a nickname of "MJ" and later on realized that I was tricked into thinking that she is an adaptation of Mary Jane Watson. It was funny to have people think about MJ though I instantly got back to my senses thinking that her awkward character and intellectual personality is definitely something interesting to bring to a high school boy's life as a teenager. Who knows? Maybe in the next installment, she will be Peter Parker's new girl?
