Does whatever a spider can
Spins a web, any size,
Catches thieves just like flies
Here comes the Spider-Man.”
Imma just going to say this: the 80’s had the best cartoons – then maybe the 70’s, and ending in the 90’s, after that cartoons die a slow and agonizing death. Cartoon Network is trying, along with Disney XD, but the 80’s were great for cartoons, after school and on Saturday Morning.
Spider-Man coming to the big screen back in 2002 was a feat that I really thought that I would never see. You see I am all in for comic book / superhero movies. Back in the 80’s and 90’s you didn’t really think that you would be watching these guys on the silver screen. Heck Marvel even thought it a joke and started to sell off the movie rights to their most popular characters so that they could make ends meet back in the 80’s, back in 1989-ish DC couldn’t keep it together and sold themselves to Time and then through mergers became owned by Warner Bros (if you didn’t know this, this is why you have Marvel characters all over the place and DC characters only in Warner Bros movies)
Eventually it happened, the first two were great, and then the third hit the fan (Petey has a dance break, hmmm). So it’s time to see a major reboot in littlest time possible while there are still Spider-Man fans, so we get “The Amazing Spider-Man” which was just “okay” and then immediately followed by “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” which could have been good if we didn’t have 4 bad guys and trying to cover every major Spider-Man plot point in the comics in one movie. Since Marvel is making Bank now they convinced Sony that they can save Spider-Man, but they have to let him play in their sandbox, not all the Spider-verse, but just Spider-Man and his immediate vicinity.
Spidey was awesome in “Captain America: Civil War” but can Marvel Studios keep the train moving and add the magic to their most popular character? Can they bring the super hero we need to us?
How does it stack up against the rest of the Spider-Man movies:
Spider-Man (2002) – $114,844,116
Spider-Man 2 (2004) – $115,817,364
Spider-Man 3 (2007) – $151,116,516
The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) – $62,004,688
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) – $91,608,337
Spider-Man Homecoming (2017) – $117,027,503
To be honest? The Spider-Man movie order that I like: 2004, 2017, 2002, 2012, 2014, 2007
How about it true believers? Is this going to be the next movie that you go and get lost in?
