I would have liked to seen Peter and her spent 10 minutes together where you know, they actually talked... the "romance" was wayyy too fast. I have a beef with all the tropes here.. Brad being the rival, the writers chose to put MJ in danger so she could run up at the end and kiss Peter, it really didn't need to be that way. Brad imho was a completely unnecessary character having the effect of taking MJ's agency away and pushing her to a "thing" in the background. Kind of the same for ned. Last movie he took out the shocker and was the man in the chair. This movie he is a something to be saved.
It would have been more funny if MJ walked in on Peter with the blonde. Maybe Michelle and Ned found a way to take care of the drones on their own because you know, like Peter, they are intelligent kids and go to a school for the gifted?
I sensed some lazy writing and falling into many tropes of the Rami movies. MJ had more to do in the last movie. She won the academic decathlon in homecoming when Peter couldn't be there.
I took it that Peter tends to focus on the Iron Man stuff simply because it is so painful for him. But irked that I have to do so much handwaving of the movie.
Another thing that kind of irked me is that seriously, there is no other super hero available- not one? I mean are they just watching London being savaged and being like, nahhh. They had no way of knowing that Peter was even there. I can see edith being given to Peter but I would also feel that Pepper, Happy or the Avengers would have the kill switch.
