Movie Bio : Meek, mild-mannered Peter Parker gets bitten by a radioactive spider and gains superpowers. After witnessing a robbery, and in a bout of indifference, letting the thief get away, he learns that the same man mugged and killed his beloved Uncle Ben just moments later. There, Peter learns the most valuable lesson he would ever learn: With great power comes great responsibility.
With Uncle Ben’s wise words in mind, he vows to fight crime, squeezes himself into homemade tights, and becomes the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man.
Spidey’s origin story – thanks in no small part to the numerous times we’ve seen it on screen – is perhaps second only to Batman’s in terms of familiarity. There is a good chance that even someone who has never read a Spider-Man comic in their lives, or seen one of the several films or cartoons, could recite his origin story to you with moderate confidence.
It is also a plot point no one was interested in seeing in Spider-Man: Homecoming – mostly for the same reasons.
Luckily for everyone, they’ve spared us. Spider-Man: Homecoming, the character’s first solo film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, picks up after the events of Captain America: Civil War, the movie in which you will remember, Tom Holland’s Spidey made his debut – and if we’re all being honest, got us psyched, despite almost losing patience for these films, for more.
But it has been a few months since that battle at the Berlin airport, and now, Peter’s back at home in Queens, pretending like none of it really happened. And he’s faced with an even bigger challenge: School, exams, bullies, and girls. To make matters worse, Tony Stark has flat-out refused to involve him in any more superhero stuff, and would like it very much if Peter were to just remain the ‘friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man’.
