Suggest to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige that the Thor movies aren't as beloved as his other films and he points to the reviews.

If you saw Spider-Man: Homecoming and want some more answers, you've come to the right place. Don't worry, this isn't one of Rob's FAQs, but we can still fill in some of the gaps, point out things you may have missed, and tell you everything else you need to know -- with help from Homecoming's director, star and producers -- about the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Friendly Neighbourhood hero.
