As a result of the disappointing returns of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Marvel and Sony negotiated a deal that would bring the webslinger into the MCU starting with Captain America: Civil War. CinemaSins made the Honest Trailer for the superhero sequel while Screen Junkies copied the style of their account made an "Everything Wrong with" video for the film. I think the most interesting thing about a young man's life is his journey from being a boy to a man, and imagine seeing that journey while having superpowers. The film features a cast that includes Tom Holland as Peter Parker (Spider-Man), Robert Downey Junior as Tony Stark (Iron Man), Zendaya Coleman as Michelle, Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds, Tony Revolori as "Flash" Thompson, Laura Harrier as Liz Allan, Marisa Tomei as May Parker, Jon Favreau as Harold "Happy" Hogan, Michael Keaton as Adrian Toomes (Vulture), Bokeem Woodbine as Herman Schultz (Shocker), and Michael Chernus as Phineas Mason (Tinkerer).

Sony still has plans for other Spider-Man characters, such as a Venom movie and an animated Spider-Man movie, both scheduled to be released next year. For comparison, Tobey Maguire was 27 and Andrew Garfield was 28.

So despite the claim that Spidey would "lead" Phase 4, the suggestion there is very much that Marvel aren't planning for anything beyond that.

With an impressive 93% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the movie has been hailed by critics as "flashy, punchy and heartwarming" (The Irish Times) and a "razor-sharp reboot" (The Guardian).

All three franchises, which span six movies including Homecoming, began with Peter Parker's rise to power. Having wrestled control back from Sony, Marvel seem to have hit upon a victor here, following up from the blistering box office success of Guardians of the Galaxy and Doctor Strange.
