IMDB Trailer



After the ending of the last Spiderman movie, I wasn't sure how Peter Parker was going to get out of the backlash of his identity being ousted. In true Parker fashion, his nervous ramblings screw up the spell Dr. Strange is casting to fix things.

With the multiverse on the fritz and Aunt May sticking her nose where it doesn't belong, all hell breaks lose and Spiderman and his friends are caught in the middle.

Can we talk about Aunt May for a minute? I know she just wants to help. She has a heart for the lost and always sticks her neck out for people, but her lack of understanding of the impact on the multiverse was really frustrating. And lets not forget Steven Strange's lack of empathy that pushes Peter more toward his aunts point of view. I think both these characters flawed communication with impressionable young Peter caused the chaos that occurred. In the end, poor Peter took the brunt of the consequences, resetting his storyline.

As a fan girl, this was a wonderfully exciting movie with past spidermans coming back to reprise their rolls and help to mentor a younger hero. It was also a great teaching opportunity for my 8 year old son, who had big emotions at the end.
