Spider-Man is back where he belongs, as part of the MCU, in Spider-Man: Homecoming. So let’s take a brief look back at the other screen incarnations of the web-slinger – from TV to the big screen.

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN
(1977–1979)

The Amazing Spider-man 1977

This live-action TV series starred Nicholas Hammond as Peter Parker. The pilot was released in cinemas.

 

SPIDER-MAN
(2002)

Spider-man 2002

Tobey Maguire’s casting might have divided opinion, but Sam Raimi’s filmmaking style was a great fit.

 

SPIDER-MAN 2
(2004)

 Spider-man 2 2004

The best of the Raimi Spider-Man movies, thanks largely to the inclusion of Doc Ock (Alfred Molina).

 

SPIDER-MAN 3
(2007)

 Spider-man 3 2007

Too many villains and Topher Grace as Venom (really?). Even Raimi has admitted the third one wasn’t good.

 

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN
(2012)

The Amazing Spider-man 2012

Andrew Garfield was a more brooding Peter Parker, but did we really need a reboot after just 10 years?

 

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2
(2014)

 The Amazing Spider-man 2 2014

A chaos of noise and colour, with an electric Jamie Foxx and another Green Goblin. Truly a tangled web.
