I am counting the hours until we see Spider-Man: Homecoming tonight. This movie has been circled on my calendar since Captain America: Civil War, and when I heard there’s no origin story I became even more excited!
Spider-Man: Homecoming is a big deal. Spidey’s on the outfield wall at Yankee Stadium, we watched Peter Parker take in the Warriors’ victory from Tony Stark’s penthouse, and I even got to BE Spidey when the Spider-Man: Homecoming Virtual Reality Experience released last weekend on PS4 (it’s also available on PC).
The Spider-Man: Homecoming Virtual Reality Experience is a freebie/tech demo that someone absolutely has to turn into a full game. I loved putting on the suit and shooting webs – I’ve played through the thing like ten times (it’s about five minutes long). But that five minutes is such a tease. I hone my skills, webbing bottles and drones and knocking down debris, but then can’t do anything to the Vulture when he starts blowing things up. Maybe I’m just a bad shot? If you’ve hit the Vulture, please let me know!
If that’s not enough Spidey for you, there’s also an app called Holo that lets you take selfies and videos with Spider-Man. I can’t think of a better way to impress my nephews than a selfie with Spidey (mainly because I’ve already got a picture with Lightning McQueen)!
Spider-Man is truly everywhere right now as his latest movie/reboot opens this weekend. I’m trying to manage my expectations for tonight but of course they’re sky-high because Spider-Man is my favourite superhero, hands down! I’ll let you know whether the movie lives up to the massive hype and my even bigger hopes.
