This is more like it, Marvel! The tone is less portentously galactic than usual: think Harry- Potter-meets-James Bond, with Tom Holland as a frankly adorable young Spidey for us Mums to coo over (secretly, of course) while teenagers identify with anxious passion as he stumbles through puberty.

Even his foe is quite cosy: Michael Keaton as a smalltime scrap merchant who turns to the dark side when his contract is cancelled by a bossy official.

He starts selling criminals alien techno-weapons from the Age of Ultron business, and builds a rickety-looking giant flying mechanical crow called The Vulture to get around in.
