Spider-Man: No Way Home

The third Marvel Cinematic Universe Spider-Man film finds the titular superhero back in New York City after his secret identity of Peter Parker is revealed in a near-death video by villain Mysterio propagated by the media, among it being Daily Bugle host J. Jonah Jameson, brilliantly portrayed by J.K. Simmons (the first live-action actor to play the same character in different film franchises), reimagined as a Rush Limbaugh-esque commentator. Spidey seeks help from Doctor Strange to make his identity secret again, although the spell is botched, unleashing a can of interdimensional whoop-ass that ties the MCU with Sony's prior Spider-Man film franchises. Could have been really bad, given the concept (which was actually Sony's idea), although the final product definitely strikes a line among being humorous, excellent fanservice, somewhat bittersweet towards the end, and an overall enjoyable movie. I definitely look forward to how the multiverse concept is further explored in the MCU.
