Following the release of Avengers: Endgame this year, it was unknown how the Marvel Cinematic Universe would continue its legendary film streak. Overnight, Spider-Man: Far From Home was screened to American critics and journalists before it hits Australian shores next week, and judging from the Twitter sphere, it’s amazing.

Directly following the events that took place during Avengers: Endgame, Peter Parker also known as Spider-Man must step up to the plate as a new threat makes its way to earth. With an A-list cast including Tom Holland, Zendaya, Samuel L. Jackson and Jake Gyllenhaal, the film has proved to be a resounding success.

Dropping into cinemas from July 1, the film is expected to bring in a whopping $117 million USD (or almost $169 million AUD) in the first weekend alone. And following positive reviews it could even see a spike in that number. Nevertheless, the prequel to the historic MCU has lived up to the hype.

While we wait for its anticipated release, scroll below for the initial reactions. Word of warning: there may be spoilers.
