The latest Spider-Man movie has finally hit theaters, and to the surprise of literally no one, it's a big hit.
Like the last superhero film we saw this year, Wonder Woman, Marvel's long-awaited Spider-Man: Homecoming is killing it in theaters. The movie has already made over $250 million worldwide and currently boasts a 93 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Obviously, with an adaptation of this size and scale, there aren't many flaws to pinpoint. The acting is spectacular, the CGI is as sharp as ever, and the action-packed scenes are every comic book fan's dream literally brought to life.
Of course, though, the tiny details are what directors tend to focus on. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the director of Spider-Man: Homecoming, Jon Watts, revealed what he sees as the film's only flub. He said,
The only real flaw is that [in our movie] there are cars on the ferry, and there haven't been cars allowed since the '90s.
LOL. Emphasis on "tiny" details here. Watts is talking about one scene in the film that takes place on the Staten Island ferry. In the scene, cars can be seen on the ferry in the background, which, as he says, would not be the case in today's world.
Obviously, it's easy to miss this small error in the scene because you're so busy paying attention to Spider-Man being a badass. So, TBH, this is something we probably never would have noticed. Luckily, though, Watts covered his film's slip up with an on the spot explanation. He followed up by saying,
I'll declare that in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, they never had these rules.
Simple enough. I guess it's easy to make rules like this when you have the power to bring an entire *fictional* universe to life ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
Though it has no effect on the plot or production, it's definitely got the comic nerd in me wondering: Are there any other continuity errors that we might've missed in the new Spider-Man: Homecoming?
