Who doesn’t love Spider-Man? When someone says the word ‘superhero’ Spider-Man is arguably the first superhero you could think of. The first trilogy was directed by Sam Raimi up until 2007. It was a very successful trilogy and there were even talks of having a fourth Sam Raimi Spider-Man film, after the project fell-through Sony decided to reboot the franchise with an entirely new cast, director, and lead actor. That’s when Marc Webb and Andrew Garfield stepped in to fill-in the roles. The franchise went on until 2014, however due to mixed reviews, Sony decided to collaborate with Marvel Studios (which is currently owned by Disney) to reboot the franchise again and include the amazing webhead in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), and that’s when Tom Holland came in.
Spider-Man is a very relatable superhero and… do we really need to explain who Spider-Man is at this point?
