Welcome to 2022 everybody!
Let's start the new year reviews with a (comparatively) new release. Released December 17th and therefore in the very middle of my Holiday break, Spider-Man: No Way Home is the 27th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the 3rd Tom Holland Spider-Man film after Spider-Man: Homecoming & Spider-Man: Far From Home, and the 8th Spider-Man film ever made.
This film was highly anticipated upon its release, not only because of its place as one of the earliest Phase Four films, but also due to rumors surrounding its cast, the inclusion of villains and characters from previous iterations of Spider-Man, and the rumors around this being the last Tom Holland Spider-Man film (the reality of this is, as of writing this, unknown to me).
I knew for a fact that I wanted to watch this film, however I initially believed I would be unable to see it due to work with TrotCon until much later in the month. Thankfully, due to the intervention of some friends, I was able to hitch a ride and enjoy what may very well be a historical film in the history of the superhero genre.
And with that introduction complete, let's take a look at Spider-Man: No Way Home.
