♫♪ Spider-Man, Spider-Man,
Does whatever a spider can
Spins a web, any size,
Catches thieves just like flies
Here comes the Spider-Man.
Is he strong?
He’s got radioactive blood.
Can he swing from a thread?
Take a look overhead
There goes the Spider-Man.
In the chill of night
At the scene of a crime
Like a streak of light
He arrives just in time.
Friendly neighborhood Spider-Man
Wealth and fame
Action is his reward.
To him, life is a great big bang-up
Wherever there’s a hangup
You’ll find the Spider-Man. ♪♫
Spiderman has always been one of my favorite Marvel superheroes. Whenever there would be crossovers of Spiderman with the X-Men in cartoons, I’d be so excited. Two of my favorite Marvel series crossing over? That was childhood bliss! I don’t know if I still have any of the older Spiderman comic books, but I did love reading them.
Now I’m a huge fan of Spiderman and Deadpool crossovers. And can I just say… I wish that Ryan Reynold’s Deadpool and Tom Holland’s Spiderman would have a movie together. That would be amazing and mind-blowing. Just saying.
Now I have to admit something. I have not seen any of Tom Holland’s Spiderman movies. I’ve only seen him in Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity Wars, and Avengers: Endgame. His version of Spiderman has been one of my favorites. And everyone has been talking recently about the latest Spiderman movie: No Way Home. I loved the Doctor Strange movie, so any chance to see Benedict Cumberbatch is a plus. And no, I have not seen the new Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
I have a tendency not to do something when it’s first out unless I’m really, really impatient or SUPER hyped. I don’t like letting the mob mentality ruin things for me. Sometimes, I’ve found movies that others HATED to be real gems. I am also one of the weirdos that just really never got into Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead. I’ve SEEN them, but I just never got fully invested in them. And the stories of both are absolutely up my alley. They check all my interest boxes.
But maybe it’s just the “YOU HAVE TO SEEN THE LATEST EPISODE” mentality that just turns me off? I don’t know.
For now, I’m tackling something that actually DOES perk my interests. I’m going to tackle Tom Holland’s Spiderman trilogy. I’m ready for the emotional whiplash since Iron Man/Robert Downey Jr. is still alive in the first movie. I heard that in No Way Home you get to see a lot of the actors/characters from other Spiderman movies, so that’s a secondary reason I want to tackle this series.
Does anyone have a favorite Spiderman? Or do you like to binge-watch movies/series the way I’m about to? What was your favorite binge-watch? Thanks for stopping by, guys. I’m going to go pop some popcorn and get this marathon going! Hopefully, my brain won’t be mush tomorrow.
