Disney is solely responsible for this whole drama with Spider-Man, not only by demanding a ridiculously imbalanced contract, this goes back further:

Disney's Mickey Mouse Law had the effect of extending the length of copyright protection far beyond what is reasonable. Had Disney not fought this legal battle, Spider-Man would have entered the Public Domain on the 1st January 2019.

There are so many layers to how terrible a company Disney is.

So, got bored the past few days and made a tier list of all the MCU movies. This is my third draft of it, and if anyone wants to discuss the rankings, I'd be more than happy to.[Image: MCU_Tier_List_Finished-min.png]

Nic I'm interested to know what you liked so much about Far From Home that you felt was missing from Homecoming.

Happy to explain.

First off, the fact that the creative team just seemed to scrub away nearly everything unique about Spider-Man (aside from character names, the costume, and the power set) and just made this an Iron Lad movie was really off-putting. As a story on its own merits, Homecoming really came off to me as this privileged kid whining about he doesn't get to go to Harvard University, despite the fact that he can literally go to any other school of his choice. Honestly, this is what Peter starts coming off as while the movie goes on:



Conversely, Far From Home has a lot more relatable themes: feeling like the weight of the world is on your shoulders, the pressure of living up to people's idea of you, constantly comparing yourself to someone you believe is better than you, wanting to have some sense of control over your life. This goes a long way in making me empathize with Peter's plight (see also, Into the Spider-Verse, which actually lets Spider-Man BE Spider-Man and not Iron Lad!). It let me walk out of the theater going "now that's more like it!" It's actually in my top 5 favorite Spider-Man movies now (behing 1, PS4, Spider-Verse, and 2).
