Spider-Man: Far From Home Early Reactions Praise Clever, Sweet Film

Following press screenings for Spider-Man: Far From Home, social media reactions are beginning to surface online, with many claiming the film surpasses its predecessor Spider-Man: Homecoming.

The biggest takeaway from the reactions is that the film, like Homecoming, is told on a much smaller scale than other Marvel movies and goes out of its way to tell a Peter-centric story, despite the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. Notably, many go out of their way to express their pure excitement over the film's post-credits scenes -- yes, two! -- suggesting they will be both massive and mind-blowing.
