Spider-Man: Far From Home is a strange, oddball third standalone outing to the fan-favorite superhero series of Spidey. After so many years of solo adventure, why did producer Avi Arad introduce a character into the main event? Is he just dying to get back into the good old, Spider-Man world? Or, is there another, less known reason we may see Spider-Man in the future? The film takes place in New York City after a devastating disaster that leveled the city, and Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who is still haunted by his earlier rejection by Peter Parker, returns as a new teenager with a newfound determination to prove himself.
Spider-Man: Far From Home feels like it was written as a sequel to Spider-Man 3, although screenwriters Greg Berlanti and Trace Ayala have denied it, stating that it is not part of the continuity of the third act. But if that's true, then why did they write it as a standalone film? Because the focus of the story is the final confrontation between Peter Parker and Electro, the villain behind all the madness. This time, however, Spider-Man has an ally in his friend Peter Parker, who uses his teen age energy power to swing through the city while putting Electro behind bars. It is this and several other sequences that separate Far From Home from the Spider-Man 3 conclusion, but if you're expecting Spider-Man 3: enter, then you're not going to be disappointed.
One thing that I love about Far From Home is that it feels like an actual episode of Spider-Man. No one says Spider-Man is a comic book character, so the adventure is truly authentic. If you like watching Spider-Man cartoons, then this is the movie for you. If you haven't seen the Spider-Man 3 yet, then you should really start checking them out. This is the perfect time to see what an amazing Spider-Man movie has to offer. If you like the cartoon, but want something more of a behind the scenes story, then this is definitely the film for you.
