There Are 3 Reasons Why I’m Excited for ‘Spider-Man: Far from Home’

Spider-Man: Homecoming was a great movie but it was just the beginning of Peter Parker’s journey. Fast forward two years and here we are, just days away from getting a glimpse at the next stage of Peter, and the MCU’s, story moving forward into Phase 4. I’m ecstatic! And, with the world premiere transpiring on Wednesday night, the reviews are in and they are expectedly positive. It’s got a solid 90% on Rotten Tomatoes from 111 critics and a score of 8.5 out of 10 on IMDb. That’s even more reason to get excited!

I can’t wait to see what Marvel has up their sleeves and I can’t wait to share you with you my review. Until then, here are three reasons why I am so excited to see this movie.

1. Mysterio, duh


This is the most excited I’ve been for a new character since…hmm, to be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited to see a character in the MCU. One of my favorite things is characters derived from the Spider-Man comics. They are complex, well thought out, and always have the chance to steal the show.

The Last Jedi was supposed to answer Star Wars fans’ simmering questions left behind by The Force Awakens but it didn’t and now we’re still pleading for answers. Nearly everything surrounding this sequel has been a mystery (even the romance!), leaving one to wonder just how J.J Abrams is going to find a way to cram all of the answers to our questions in one film.

In terms of the romantic aspect of the film, people are immediately gravitating to several potential romantic pairings; Finn and Rey, Finn and Rose, Rey and Kylo Ren, Finn and Poe, oh the madness won’t end. But one potential couple no one is exactly talking about is Poe and Rey. It’s very far-fetched that the two characters may grow romantic feelings for one another but hey, anything is possible.

The reason for this potential romance is because of the brief exchange between Rey and Poe at the end of The Last Jedi. Now for me, I didn’t see anything between the two characters as they introduced themselves that sparked my future-couple spidey sense but a lot of people are wondering if they might end up becoming something more than just rebellion buddies. Personally, I think having them become a couple would be a terrible idea for several reasons.

One, Rey is just too awesome for Poe (sorry Poe.) Continue reading Throwback Friday: Should Rey and Poe Have A Romance in ‘The Rise of Skywalker’?
