    Providing for his family. He actually says this more than once in the film.

    That's why I liked him. He wasn't out to destroy or take over the world. He didn't want God-like power. For Toomes, being a Super Villain was a 9 - 5 job. A way to provide for his wife and daughter. If Damage Control hadn't screwed him over, he probably wouldn't have become the Vulture.

    I like that he tried to keep it at "street level" , seeing the damage caused during the incident and what it took to stop it , he probably had the good sense to not get too big for his own head so that we wouldn't draw major attention from say SHIELD or the Avengers , which is why we was very reluctant to do the last Job until he kinda had no choice.

    Toombs was solid, but let's not pretend like he was anything more than that. He got major points from me for catching me off guard by being Liz's dad. And very well acted.

    He was an extremely safe, conservative choice as a villain. Solid, but not spectacular. And that's the problem about film villains a lot of the time... They always go for a home-run.

    If there's something that Marvel has mastered is the art of playing it safe. This has both good and bad aspects.

    If you're using a baseball analogy I'd say that most of the villains were easily strikeouts. Some of them (Killian, Malekith, Madarin) were flailing ugly strikeouts.

    Toombs was a solid standing double.

    Red Skull was a home run. When it comes to Big Bads, Nazis are still the gold standard.

    Just saw it not too bad I still think Spider-man 2 was the best . Keaton's Vulture was the one best the
    Marvel villains. Never anytime in the movie did I think Flash was any kind threat to Parker poor
    casting choice Marvel part. 7.5/10

    Update: July 15, 2017

    Spider-Man's Spider-Sense Shows Up in AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR


    The first-ever footage from Avengers: Infinity War was shown earlier at D23 [read footage description here]. Peter is seen riding a school bus. When Thanos' ship lands on Earth, Peter's arm hairs stand up. They also show Spidey in his new armored-type suit (the one he rejected at the end of Homecoming).

    Why would they bother with scraps and risk exposure by dealing with street thugs. Street thugs are not exactly discreet or smart about avoiding police attention. If that street thug had bought the high tech weapons he was offered for sale, he would have immediately been noticed by law enforcement.

    Yeah but they made Spiderman's sidekick an obese unattractive Asian dude, more or less pushing the stereotype that Asian men are dorks who are not attractive.

    Maybe I don't want KID IRON MAN. Maybe I want SPIDERMAN. And Spiderman has... Spider. Sense.

    Did chuckle that Wonder Woman and Spider-Man got put into bigger movie universes for the first time within a month of each other. Almost like MTV knew.

    Also Star Wars still popping up everywhere.

    I was severely disappointed.

    Spider-Man talking to an AI in his suit? "Electrified" web shooters. WTF? The constant RDJ appearances and the whole Iron Spider-take on the character really wasn't what I was hoping for. In fact, it was pretty borderline to call him "Spider-Man". The whole film I kept thinking Sony really wanted to make "Iron Man Jr.", and this was as close as they could legally get. The worst part was how accurate the character looked to be portrayed in Civil War ... it got my hopes up. With the suit, what is the point of Parker's powers at all? We already saw the stuff Stark builds is supposed to be stronger anyway, and it can fly. The suits turn an ordinary guy into an Avenger, so what is the point of using the teenager in the first place?

    Hated the Aunt May take, really hated the Punk Rock Mary Jane take, hated the "nerd" Flash.


    Raimi is still the champ. If only he had given McGuire webshooters, it would be pretty close to a perfect representation of the character.


    P.S. Going in, my biggest worry was about the Vulture portrayal, which ironically ended up being the strongest point of the film, IMO.

    Just saw it today. I thought it was fantastic. They absolutely nailed Spidermans character. My one big gripe was Vultures motivation was a bit contrived and meh, coupled with the fact that Stark would have totally just given him double what was supposed to earn.


    SPOILERS


    But everything spidey was perfect. I was also happy to see a climactic battle sequence that actually resonated. For me the last perfunctory action sequence sometimes feels like it's just going through the motions. I felt this one actually gave a better context on both it's hero and villain. The way Spiderman actually LOST the final battle, only to come back and save the person who just beat him, and having the scene end with a callback to Starks quip regarding the person "needing" the suit being nothing without it is perfectly encapsulated in Vulture's being wingless and immobile. That's perfect Spiderman. This is one of Marvels best, imo.


    Also:



    60 year old lady tapping her feet and hands to this during the credits. Fucking RIGHT.

    I'm honestly pretty fine with changing things up a bit. Make Flash smart, etc. I mean, these stories are what? 60 years old now? I'm not in the camp of "Hey, this story thats been told dozens of times over the years? Tell it the same way again." Marvel has been doing a great job of showing you can make changes and still be true to the characters.
