#SpiderManNoWayHome is A LOT of movie — it's MASSIVE — and I'm happy to report it's everything you're expecting/hoping for 🕷️
The plot devices to set the stage are a bit silly but that doesn't really matter given the sheer spectacle — easily one of the grandest MCU films yet. pic.twitter.com/sBDtrF6ccP

While not everything works in #SpiderMan #NoWayHome, what does work is enough for me. It's joyous and serious, messy and ridiculous, yet focused on heartfelt messages that evolve from previous films and tap into the central appeal of Spider-Man.

#SpiderManNoWayHome review — Easily the best Spider-Man movie to date.Quality from end to end. Exciting. Never slows down. Opens the door for so many more stories. But it is brutal and it does not pull any punches. It’s what you expect it to be but also completely different.

#SpiderManNoWayHome is far from perfect, but its redeeming qualities will definitely be enough for many. Jon Watts and the cast save it from ever falling totally apart.
Sticks out from the last two films, for better and worse, and is *definitely* going to have people talking 🕷 pic.twitter.com/NY4AfAODPW

I can confidently say #SpiderManNoWayHome is THE BEST live-action Spider-Man movie. A thrilling & emotional end to the “Homecoming” trilogy, but also a smart, fun & exciting tribute to 20 years of Spider-Man movies. Both hilarious & heartbreaking, I honestly loved every second. pic.twitter.com/8xpqbTNgfz

#SpiderManNoWayHome makes you feel every feeling you could possibly feel.
It is 2.5 hours of nonstop emotion, action, quips, and heart. Everything you want from a Peter Parker story.
It has never been a better time to be a Spider-Man fan. @MCU_Direct

#SpiderManNoWayHome is the MCU’s BEST and BIGGEST Spider-Man film yet. Tom Holland shines in a nostalgic, emotionally compelling outing that delivers as one of the most entertaining blockbusters of the year with kinetic action & superb characterization.

Spider-Man: No Way Home is immensely satisfying. You'll cry happy tears, sad tears, and cheer in the theater. The middle gets a little clunky cause there are so many characters but the third act is so dynamic, fun and powerful, it more than makes up for it. #SpiderManNoWayHome pic.twitter.com/klthYwtmCg

I was one of the lucky media members to catch the press screening on No Way Home in New York City and all told, I give it an 8/10, and I don’t give 10s except to my favorite films of all time. Generally, I’m expecting audiences across the world to love it and rank it in their Top 10 Marvel Cinematic Universe films.
Make sure to check back in the coming days as we’ll be breaking down Spider-Man: No Way Home in-depth once the film is officially released.
Spider-Man: No Way Home — the fourth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 4 following Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and Eternals, and 27th film overall — stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker / Spider-Man, Zendaya as MJ, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Jamie Foxx as Electro, Alfred Molina as Doc Ock, and Willem Dafoe as Green Goblin. While Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Men have yet to be confirmed, odds are they’ll show up, too. The film is scheduled to hit theaters in the United States on Friday, December 17.
