There is a pinnacled problem with the torrent of super-hero films. They have all become an in-house secret, rituals of a rollicking adventure attended by a global community of superhero-philes who know every joke, gag and gig.
Even by the casual expectations of Marvel-hero fans, “Spider-Man: Far From Home” is a tepid occurrence, more mentionable for its familiar tropes and characters than any real attempt to crack the superhero code. Not that the audiences want it cracked. They are happy to watch the caped crusaders flying high on anti-destruction dope.
Spiderman, as we all know, is the youngest and most boyish of the superhero recruits.
