    The comedy content was fairly low compared to the MCU. I mean, compare the Raimi films, which definitely had humor (like Peter smashing into a wall) but there was no humor effect in-universe. We laughed, the characters didn't. That's the difference.

    Agreed. This is the problem with reboots, they already adapted Ben's death very well so it's difficult to keep that without feeling like a retread.

    But Iron Man doesn't work for me because it's so blatantly inconsistent in Peter's behaviour. 8 months after Ben's death: he's living life normally. 8 months after Iron Man's death: he's unable to cope.

    It just takes me right out of it.

    What if Uncle Ben just died from like, a normal heart attack or something. MCU Aunt May seems down to clown with heavier guys after all.

    People weren't pressuring him to be the next Uncle Ben, though.

    I'm aware, but that in itself doesn't sell it for me. It still makes it look like he cared more about Tony than Ben.

    But I guess the inconsistency shouldn't surprise me when May's character changes without onscreen development. Homecoming: super protective of Peter. FFH: completely down with Peter fighting supervillains. It's a damn shame that Infinity War had to happen just after Homecoming because it prevented us from seeing just how May reacted to finding out Peter was Spider-Man.

    Shouldn't May be even more protective of Peter after the snap? Or was she also one of its victims?

    Dafoe's performance tilts things in favour of the first one for me, but the second was also really good!
    My fanfics:
    The Gift (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot)
    - A duel between Cú Chulainn and Scáthach.
    Passion Acknowledged (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) (Lemon) - Shirou and Shinji finally acknowledge their feelings.
    He Was a Good King (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) - A short exploration of Beowulf's character as a hero and a king.
    A Fairy Tale of Love and Death (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) - A meeting between Scáthach and King Hassan in the distant past.

    I believe the part of how May reacted to finding out Peter was Spider-Man that we did not see was “uck!?”

    Very conveniently, everyone of import to MCU Spider-Man was blipped.

    No, but this is one movie for which I don't mind spoilers.

    Aunt May got blipped, and when she came back the new tenant’s wife thought she was his mistress

    I liked the first one solely for the confession scene. I remember that moment because it was the moment where I actually decided to start following Spiderman.
