When the latest version of the Spider-Man surfaced in the middle of Captain America: Civil War, fans of the web-slinger had reason to hope. In just a few brief glimpses, something existed that was sorely missing from earlier screen adaptations. The lightheartedness was there. The quippy one-liners were on point. We finally had a Spider-Man that felt aligned with the comic book source material. It's about how I felt when Hulk finally just smashed and proclaimed "Puny God" in the first Avengers film.
But, is this a character best served in small bites, or does a full course cinematic meal prove that Spider-Man is now a legitimate player in the MCU?
