“Spider-Man big screen adaptation take 3” *claps clapperboard
Sony is giving the Spider-Man franchise another go with another semi reboot of our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man with the help of Marvel Studios. This time around, Spider-Man has been embedded into the MCU a.k.a Marvel Cinematic Universe. With his brief and scene stealing cameo in Captain America: Civil War, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) was introduced and kicked off the start of his involvement into one day becoming an avenger. Up till now, his franchise only has him swinging into crime solving solo, never receiving any assistance with his heroism and now fans get to see him team up with other marvel heroes where he belonged.
While bringing some award winning performances and great visual sets. Ron Howard’s latest project lacks the action pack epic battle I am sure many of you were looking forward to from the trailer.
Think of this drama in the same tone as Finding Neverland or Ever After. This movie is told in flashbacks while someone listens to a story that will later inspire one of the greatest novels we all know. In this case that tale is Moby Dick.
Ben Whishaw plays Herman Melville, the author of the would be Moby Dick, seeking one of the survivors to come clean about what exactly happened while him and his crew were out to see. He finds crew member Tom Nickerson (Brandon Gleeson) who is dealing with those demons and uses this opportunity to speak openly about it. That is when we are taken back to 1820.
