Aside from the more obvious references to a high-school dance and a beloved character’s addition to the MCU, the Homecoming of Spider-Man: Homecoming also denotes a refreshing return to simpler superhero cinema. Though now part of a plot-driven epic universe overflowing with self-importance, Spidey’s first solo adventure within it is lighthearted fun, with stakes that don’t involve saving the planet from the clutches of a boring villain.
