Episode #6 of CE4K saw the team discuss the concept of reboots - things we loved, things we didn't and things we'd like to see happen. Due to our masterful editing, you may not have realised that Imran's mic completely dropped out for the middle part of the recording so the episode doesn't get to include the reboot he was most thrilled about so we're including it here for your reading pleasure as opposed to your intended listening one.
In fairness, it was a very brief segment, mainly because the suggestion was unanimously agreed upon by Dan and Tee-J making us all die-hard fans of the MCU's rendition of Spider-Man. While Sony's previous five films (which saw Tobey Macguire and Andrew Garfield don the mask) achieved varying degrees of success and critical acclaim, Tom Holland's casting is widely considered as being the best onscreen iteration of the character. His match-made-in-heaven pairing with Robert Downey Jr's Tony Stark, his Stark Technology upgrades and winning charm have not only led to the perfect tone for a Spidey movie but a logical update to the character as well.
At the time of this writing, Spider-Man has featured in six movies within the MCU umbrella and thanks to what's been described as Tom Holland's drunk phone call with Disney Chairman Bob Iger, we're likely to see at least one more. Thankfully.
