(80) When Happy tells Peter, “You’re never going to be Iron Man,” the proper punchline is, “because you’re Spider-Man.” Unfortunately, Far From Home is more a Marvel movie starring Spider-Man than a “Spider-Man” movie. What’s disappointing isn’t that Peter spends the film trying to emulate Tony Stark (as Uncle Ben), it’s that he spends it establishing his place in the MCU rather than exploring what it means to be Spidey. Hopefully Sony’s own Spider-verse films give Holland more room to grow.
