Our SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Spoiler-Filled Discussion

Spider-Man: Homecoming is out, and it’s really good! Today on Nerdist News Talks Back Host Rachel Heine is joined by Associate Editor Kyle Anderson, and Nerdist News writers Joan Ford and Aliza Pearl as they discuss all things Spider-Man: Homecoming. Additionally, Daniel Craig will be coming back for another James Bond film, and there are so damn many nerd events in two weeks.

 

No Spoilers Here! Homecoming is great! It perfectly incorporates Peter Parker into the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe and delivers a small-scale story with truly meaningful stakes. It also gets Peter right, a perpetually down-on-his-luck kid just trying to do the most good with what he’s been given. Not only that, the movie is also fun as hell. There are so many little moments that really sell the friendly neighborhood angle and keep the levity without detracting from the story’s emotional weight. And Michael Keaton’s Vulture is so good he might even be the MCU’s best villain. For more spoiler-free Spider-Man check out our review. And for spoilers, watch the video above.

Rumors can now cease! Daniel Craig will be returning as 007 in the next James Bond film, according to The Daily Mirror (although, to be fair, it’s The Mirror, so it’s not a guarantee). The actor had previously stated that he would not come back to the franchise, but his mind appears to have changed. This will be his 5th, and probably final, Bond movie. Rumors can now commence! Adele is rumored as the singer of the theme song. Her previous Bond outing, Skyfall, was #1 on many radio stations around the world the week it was released. But wait! There’s more! Christopher Nolan wants to direct a Bond movie, and it will star Michael Keaton as another bird.

Speaking of Nolan, his WWII film, Dunkirk, comes out soon alongside sci-fi epic Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Those alone would make it a huge weekend, but it’s also San Diego Comic-Con 2017! That’s a whole lotta nerd, so we did what every nerd does. We played marry, f***, kill with them! You can join us in the video above.
