The dust has barely settled on the events of Avengers: Endgame, and now we rejoin the MCU for the aftermath through Sony’s Spider-Verse. With everyone recovering from the ‘blip’ (Thanos’ masterplan), Peter Parker (Tom Holland) is now coping with being Spider-Man in a world without his mentor Tony Stark. When an opportunity presents itself to visit Europe on a school-trip, Peter jumps at the chance, seeing this as a vacation that he sorely needs. But soon some mysterious goings-on draw Peter into a fight he might not be able to win, as he teams up with an enigmatic new superhero named Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal). It’s a fun and entertaining ride that furthers the story on in a good, engaging way. The set up for the next movie is also amazing with the mid-credits sting a real statement of intent for the Spider-Man franchise.
