Ranking of all Spider-Man Movies
This topic is something that many people have varying opinions on and I am sure that many people will disagree with me but here goes my ranking of all the Spider-Man movies.
#8 The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)
This movie ranks last in my list and I really wish this series of Spider-Man movies ranked higher on my list but this movie had a lot of cringe worthy acting from Jamie Fox as Electro and Dane Dehaan as Harry Osborn and was simply not a good watch. This whole series unfortunately had a lot of untapped potential and that is why it ranks last on my list.
#7 Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)
Another Spider-Man movie that was fairly disappointing, especially being that this would be the first movie after Avengers Endgame, there was a decent amount of hype behind the movie, we would see what the world is like after Endgame and did not really go much into it and honestly I just did not really enjoy it, not what is expected from a Spider-Man movie.
#6 Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)
I so badly want to rank Tom Holland’s Spider-man Higher on this list, I really do, but I just can not bring myself to rank them higher than the rest. If I am being fair then Tom Holland represent Spider-Man the best, a high school age kid, the character is a “nerd” and does not fit in with everyone, but the movie as a whole does not fit as a Spider-Man movie to me, the MCU did a good job introducing Peter Parker into the universe but there is so much missing that we do not get, the spider bite? Uncle Ben? Making his suit? Oh yeah MR. Stark took care of that.
#5 Spider-Man 3 (2007)
This movie is ranked as high as it is solely based on the fact that this trilogy holds such a soft spot in my heart that I could not bring myself to rank it worse. At this point Director Sam Raimi had great plans for his movies but Sony had other plans. Every time Sam would come to them with ideas they would either shut him down or argue with him until he gave in. Sony had made it clear that they were planning a reboot and Sam had no interest in working with them anymore. This movie seems rushed because of that, three villains and some of the most cringe-worthey(and meme worthy) scenes, and acting. Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire had planned on staying on board for a fourth movie and we as fans were not fortunate enough to receive it.
#4 The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)
With the Spider-Man franchise being rebooted this movie receives a lot of hate among fans simply because it is not the original. But let me be the one to tell you this deserves to be as high on the list as it is. Andrew Garfield may not fit the description of Peter Parker that we are used to but this movie did not disappoint. I loved that they made Gwen Stacey the main love interest of Peter and let us not forget one of Stan Lee’s best cameos ever.
#3 Spider-Man (2002)
This one is pretty self explanatory here. The OG Tobey Maguire and his first appearance as Spider-Man. I love this movie and I watched it a few weeks ago and listen to me when I tell you it still holds up. This Trilogy came to an end much sooner than it was intended but it delivered some of the best Spider-Man movies that we have. Aside from the fact that they had people in their late 20’s playing high school kids this is the epitome of Spider-Man films.
#2 Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse(2018)
The few of you that will actually read this will probably disagree with me ranking this at what it is but this movie is so good in my opinion. From the animations to the comic style of the animation to the references of old Spider-Man movies, this movie really has it all and it shows just how large the “Spiderverse” really is and how many different characters are involved. I am really looking forward to the sequel coming out in the next couple years.
#1 Spider-Man 2 (2004)
In my opinion this is a no doubter, by far the best of the Spider-Man movies and there is really no contest. This movie was ahead of its time another movie that if you were to watch it today then you would still love it. The Sam Raimi trilogy all together is great and this movie had it all, Peters internal struggle, his love interest with Mary-Jane, Dr. Octavius, the train scene, and so much more. It would be really hard to take this movie off of its top spot of this list.
