Being the MCU blockbuster and this, in particular, Spider-Man as none of this blockbuster debut is a surprise. The fact that Far From Home has now got an added marketing push via the release of Avengers: Endgame and the Marvel’s drumbeat of “this is the true final chapter which is in the MCU Infinity Saga.” Plus coming to the recent underperformance of several high profile summer releases brings to a point to the typical healthy future for the Spidey’s sequel.
Currently at 94% at the Rotten Tomatoes, is the Spidey’s latest trip to the multiplex is then tied with the Endgame, and it is behind only Black Panther, making this the second-best reviewed MCU film alongside Avengers Endgame. Of all the live-action superhero movies from every studio, Far From Home is in a 3 -way tie with The Dark Knight and Avengers Endgame for second place behind the Black Panther. It includes all animated films, like the animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse which is tied with Black Panther for the first place at 97%.
The reactions of the Audience so far have been equally enthusiastic for Far From Home. We will be getting the Cinemascore data soon, but for now, the other polling shows the high-end marks from viewers and the exceptional word-of-mouth that this will translate into a strong buzz headed into the weekend and also long legs for weeks to come.

This is the major bug-eyed, and explosive version of the actor that we might recognize from the Okja or Nightcrawler
