Spider-Man: Far from Home

Spider-Man: Far from Home ★★★

Spider-Man going up against a bad guy whose superpower is literally the ability to make really good CGI is such an irony-rich concept for a Marvel movie to try in the immediate aftermath of Endgame that I’m a little disappointed the film only half-heartedly dips into it. Same goes for the deep-fake spin and outright InfoWars stuff that crops up at the very end - if Marvel are searching for a new insurmountable threat for the Avengers to face off against in the coming years, fake news would be a great place to start. I’d love a lecture from The Walt Disney Corporation about information and media control.
