All Of The Spider-Man Films Ranked

Categories Uncategorized
Spider-Man: Homecoming in finally in theaters. In this list, we are going to see where the latest Spider-Man film stacks up against the rest. Is Holland as good as the previous Web-Heads? Does Homecoming at least pass The Amazing Spider-Man? Let’s find out!  

6. The Amazing Spider-Man 2
The second film in Marc Webb’s Spider-Man series is definitely the worst of the worst. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is unfocused, insanely goofy, and tries miserably to set up a universe that no one wanted to see. The film’s only saving grace is Andrew Garfield’s (Spider-Man) on Emma Stone’s (Gwen Stacy) performances. The villains are terrible and the story is convoluted. It’s a mess and not even an enjoyable one. The action scenes and special effects were great so that’s something.

5. Spider-Man 3

The third film is usually the worst and here is no different. Spider-Man 3 had a tough act to follow after two spectacular films proceeding it. The film focuses on Peter getting the symbiote suit and dealing with its effects. It also focuses on Harry wanting to get revenge on Spider-Man for killing his father. While also focussing on Peter and MJ’s relationship, and the Sandman killing Uncle Ben. This film doesn’t know what story it wants to tell. Each one seems interesting enough to have its own movie, but instead, we try to cram at least two films worth of material into one movie. Spider-Man 3 suffers the same problems The Amazing Spider-Man 2 does, but they at least manage to still make it a coherent story.

4. The Amazing Spider-Man

The Amazing Spider-Man got a lot more hate than it probably deserved. Sure it goes over some of the same beats the original Spider-Man film did, but it was still a decent time. Garfield and Stone once again carry the film. Their chemistry is some of the best I’ve seen in any superhero flick. The Lizard is a capable foil, and Spider-Man’s origin is done really well. There are a few missteps – the tone might be darker than necessary, The “Best Kind” line needed to be cut out etc. But overall it’s still a solid movie, but the horrible sequel seems to overshadow that.

3. Spider-Man 

Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man is still one of the best comic book movies you’ll see. It’s got everything, an amazing villain in the Green Goblin, a great cast and most importantly, heart. The film is the perfect Spider-Man origin story. Toby Maguire is solid as Peter Parker and Willem Dafoe is incredible as the Green Goblin. It’s cheesy but in the best possible way.  That’s what makes this movie special. It doesn’t take itself too seriously, but it still has its dramatic moments. I still have fun watching this movie. Spider-Man is truly a classic.

2. Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spidey’s first film set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe found it’s way into our number two spot. Tom Holland owns the role as Spider-Man and manages to bring a lot of depth to the character. Peter Parker is just a kid trying to balance high school with being a superhero. That’s what Spider-Man is all about. Keaton steals the show as the Vulture and the combination of Robert Downey Jr. and Jon Favreau and even more to this film. It’s pretty much everything you could ever want in a Spider-Man film.

1. Spider-Man 2

The number one film is obviously Spider-Man 2.This film changed the game. Spider-Man 2 is almost a perfect comic book film. The action is great, the characters are (mostly) great, and the villain is still one of the best we’ve seen. Alfred Molina brings this film to a whole new level. Honestly, if it wasn’t for Mary Jane the film might be a perfect 10 [she’s the worst and you know it]. Everything else is amazing, and it still holds up incredibly well 13 years later.

Thus concludes our 9 days of Spider-Man. It was a heck of a ride. Thanks for reading, I hope you’ve had as much fun as we have. We can’t wait to do this again in November for Thor: Ragnarok. For all your Marvel news make sure to follow us on Twitter @AstonishMarvels.
