A lot of scenarios pop into my mind but nothing fits.

If Raf's as big a Helen Slater fan as I think he is, he should know the first half.  There's actually a two word overlap in this one.

The first part's pretty obvious.  I'm having trouble thinking of a super-hero movie that could come before or after it, though.

Sorry.  Still not getting it.  For a hint, is the foreign prince part the first, or second, half?

For reasons unclear to me, it seems my descriptions work better by describing the 2nd name first. It keeps happening, I don't know why.

 

BTW, you're going to kick yourself.

Ah.

 

"Spider-Man: Homecoming to America"?

That's it. Once I realized the Spidey movie took place in Queens, I was inspired to post this round.

I'm going to change this one.

Two young men, filming a TV show from their basement, aid a British secret agent in preventing the crippling of Europe by the destruction of a key oil pipeline.

(This way makes a better title.)

Is this "Wayne's World Is Not Enough"??

It is, indeed.

Originally, I had "Thor:  The Dark World Is not Enough," but I think this one flows better.

You're up!
