    Exactly my feelings on the subject.I couldn't stand Homecoming so I didn't even bother with the sequal. Spider-man 1 and 2 were great films. 3 was a letdown but still enjoyable. And ITS was simply brilliant. Spider-man doesn't need to be a part of any shared universe in order to be successful. The Raimi films proved that.

    It doesn't count if it's not Cumberbatch.

    Yeah. No.

    Into the Spider-Verse was everything MCU Haters complained the MCU was. But because it had no one but Spidey characters in it somehow that automatically made it good. Hypocrites.

    I have to agree that Spider-Verse was pretty MCU-ish so it's hard to see why someone would like one and not the other.

    No, because the script was very clever. Not a hallmark of the MCU.

    The biggest draw (pun not intended) for ItSV, was it’s unique and beautiful animation style which enhanced the story quite a bit.

    This is beginning to feel like a DC movies vs Marvel movies thread.

    *Checks out which super hero movie has one an Oscar, and not for technical/design*

    That was a great part of it as well, yes. It captured the kinetic art of comics and layered on graphic elements in such a way that I found it a far truer and more satisfying evocation of the characters and their milieu than I ever do these live-action blockbusters.
