‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ and Black Love – WATCH

Michelle (Zendaya) catches a ride from Spider-Man in Columbia Pictures’ “Spider-Man: “Far From Home.”

*The “Spider-Man” franchise gets better and better. The action packed “Spider-Man: Far From Home” has Tom Holland (Peter Parker) returning as the neighborhood superhero Spider-Man who, following the events of  “Avengers: Endgame,” must step up his game.

He takes on new threats in an ever increasing, dangerous world. On a class trip to Europe, Peter Parker (Spidey) encounters deadly Elemental Creatures that interfere with his plans to woo MJ (Zendaya).

In “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” Parker took his black main squeeze, Liz (Laura Harrier) to the prom. Kudos to Spider-Man for not only always saving the world from new threats, but also proving love comes in all shapes, sizes, and colors. However, the Marvel savior isn’t the only superhero to show sister love. DC Comics has superheroes also crossing the line. “The Flash,” CW Network’s long running series, stars Grant Gustin (Barry) as The Flash and Candice Patton (Iris) as his long time love. They were married last season.

Krypton,” on the Syfy channel, is based on the legendary legacy of “Superman” (The Man of Steel). The story line centers on the grandfather of Superman, Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe). He is madly in love with warrior Lyta-Zod (Georgina Campbell). The star-crossed lovers are forever fighting forces beyond their control.

Ironically, “Spider-Man: Far From Home” opens with the song, “I Will Always Love You,” sung by Whitney Houston.  I will not spoil it for those who have yet to see the film, by explaining the significance of the song in the scene.
