Spider-Man: Homecoming is a 2017 superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character Spider-Man. The movie is directed by Jon Watts and stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker / Spider-Man, Michael Keaton as Adrian Toomes / Vulture, and Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark / Iron Man. The movie starts off with a brief recap of Spider-Man's introduction in Captain America: Civil War. Peter Parker is thrilled to have fought alongside the Avengers, but is disappointed that he hasn't heard from Tony Stark since then. Back in his hometown of Queens, New York, Peter is struggling to balance his high school life with his superhero duties. He longs to prove his worth to Tony and become a full-fledged Avenger.

Meanwhile, a group of criminals led by Adrian Toomes are stealing high-tech equipment from various locations in the city. Toomes is a former salvage worker who was put out of business when the city took over his contract. He's taken matters into his own hands and uses the stolen technology to build weapons that he can sell on the black market.

Peter's investigations into the thefts lead him to Toomes and his illegal operation. He starts to dismantle it on his own, but quickly realizes that he's out of his depth. Tony Stark steps in and takes away Peter's Spider-Man suit, admonishing him for getting involved in a situation that the Avengers should be handling.

Peter's high school life is not going well either. He's in love with Liz Allan, a popular senior, but is too shy to tell her. He's also best friends with Ned Leeds, who accidentally discovers Peter's secret identity as Spider-Man. Ned is thrilled and wants to help Peter fight crime, but Peter warns him to stay out of it for his own safety.

Desperate to prove himself to Tony and become an Avenger, Peter decides to take on Toomes and his gang anyway. He designs his own Spider-Man suit and recruits Ned to be his "guy in the chair" - someone who can help him with technology and research. Together, they embark on a dangerous mission to take down Toomes and his weapons.

The climax of the movie is a thrilling action sequence where Spider-Man goes head-to-head with Vulture in a showdown at the Staten Island Ferry. The ferry is split in half, but Spider-Man manages to save everyone on board using his web-slinging abilities. In the end, Tony Stark acknowledges Peter's bravery and officially invites him to join the Avengers.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is a fun and lighthearted superhero movie that deviates from the darker tone of the previous Spider-Man movies. Tom Holland's portrayal of Peter Parker is refreshing and relatable, capturing the awkwardness and angst of a teenage superhero perfectly. Michael Keaton is a fantastic villain, bringing depth and nuance to the role of Vulture. Robert Downey Jr. also shines in his cameo appearances as Tony Stark, providing some comedic relief and mentorship to Peter.

The movie is also notable for its diverse casting, featuring actors of all ethnicities in significant roles. Jacob Batalon's portrayal of Ned is particularly notable, providing some much-needed comic relief and a positive representation of a Filipino-American character.

Overall, Spider-Man: Homecoming is a must-see for fans of the superhero genre. It's an entertaining and enjoyable movie that brings a fresh perspective to the beloved character of Spider-Man.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is a 2017 action movie with a runtime of 2 hours and 13 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 7.4 and a MetaScore of 73.
