A sequel, Spider-Man: No Way Home , was released in 2021.


Stewart: ★★★★★

"One of my favourites in the Marvel movies, perhaps the appealing gorgeous European settings and the breezy comedy helps. The comedy doesn't feel as forced this time around as it sometimes can in these movies. Probably helped by the natural performances of the excellent cast, Tom Holland really comes into his own here and continues to have great chemistry with any cast member he shares the screen with. Meanwhile Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio is probably my favourite villain, he's great! This was a nice change of pace for Marvel after the epic Avengers movies."
