42 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Quotes That Introduced Fans to the New Spider-Man
The box office numbers on "Spider-Man: Homecoming" proved that Spidey fatigue had not settled in despite being the sixth solo outing of the character on the screen in 15 years. In these 42 quotes from Tom Holland's version, one can see why the character remains a hit.
Holland was introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in "Captain America: Civil War" in 2016, a year before the release of "Spider-Man: Homecoming."
The film starts with a brilliant recap of "Civil War," as shown from the excitable teenager's perspective as he records some of the events on his smartphone.
With the audience already familiar with Holland's Parker backstory, "Homecoming" could focus on showcasing his rocky journey from nerdy high schooler to superhero and Avenger, with his friends Ned Leeds and Michelle Jones-Watson, portrayed by Jacob Batalo and Zendaya.
