It may seem hard to believe, but after years of speculation, anticipation and overall mental breakdowns over fan theories, Spider-Man: No Way Home is finally here... well, almost. The movie hits theaters on December 17, but the premiere took place on December 13, allowing journalists and critics to experience Peter Parker's third MCU solo outing a few days early.
The film's review embargo has lifted, and we now have the first social media reactions to share with you. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has an almost-spotless track record when it comes to critical receptions, and No Way Home continues that impressive legacy. Responses to the movie are mostly spectacular, and while Peter Parker's newest adventure didn't fully resonate with all reviewers, it's safe to say that No Way Home has been very well-received so far.

Note: Once again, before delving into these reactions, please be aware that some of them may contain details that some could consider spoilers.
As mentioned above, despite a mostly positive reception, some reviewers also had some criticisms:
