Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe haven’t had to wait long to see the state of their favorite movie franchise following the events of Avengers: Endgame, as the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home — the sequel to 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming — is already upon us.
And if the early Twitter reviews are any indication, the second chapter in Marvel Studios Spidey saga — the 23rd film in the MCU thus far — is yet another worthy addition to the iconic series.
Despite the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home still being about two weeks away, the social media embargo on the film was lifted last night, leading to a flood of overwhelmingly positive tweets about the film.
Brandon Davis of ComicBook.com called Far From Home a “home run”:
Mike Ryan over at Uproxx said that he “absolutely loved” the “clever” and “funny” film:
Spider-Man: Far From Home sees the introduction of Jake Gyllenhaal as iconic Spidey adversary Quentin Beck / Mysterio, who apparently nailed his portrayal of the mind-bending supervillain (although Disney is doing their darndest to convince everyone he’s actually a good guy in this one).
Those glowing reviews match that of Maude Garrett’s, who said that “Gyllenhaal suits up & completely embraces his role in its entirety.”
Overall, the reviews for Spider-Man: Far From Home are almost universally positive, as critics are praising the movie as the perfect pallet cleanser following the heaviness of Avengers: Endgame.
Similarly, almost all of the reviews suggest that this movie is just one of those “have to see it twice” flicks.
Spider-Man: Far From Home — the 23rd overall film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that was co-produced by Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios — will be released in theaters in the United States on Tuesday, July 2.
