There are a whole lot of Spider-Man films, so we have determined to determine which of them are the most effective… and which of them are the worst.
Listed below are all of the Sony-Marvel Spider-Man films ranked.
Spider-Man films ranked from worst to greatest
10. Spider-Man 3 (2007)
A bizarre parody of the sooner, much better Sam Raimi Spider-Man films, Spider-Man 3 was closely criticized upon its launch and rightfully so.
However the years have been variety to it, partly because of the reservoir of memes that developed in its wake. No film — save possibly Lord of the Rings or the Star Wars prequel trilogy — has been as chargeable for as many GIFs and memes as Spider-Man 3. In that respect re-watching it’s a new, distinctive expertise. Upon its launch it was bloated and unusual, in 2021 it is an unimaginable quantity of enjoyable.
— Mark Serrels
The place to look at it: Spider-Man 3 accessible to hire or purchase on Amazon Prime Video, and is accessible to stream on Starz, which prices $8.99 monthly after a one week free trial.
9. Venom (2018)
I watched Venom on a primary date and promptly fell asleep midway by. In the midst of a loud, crowded cinema. My apologies to followers of the toothy symbiote.
— Steph Panecasio
The place to look at it: Venom is obtainable to hire or purchase on Amazon Prime Video, or to stream by way of FuboTV, which prices $64.99 monthly.
8. Venom: Let There Be Carnage (2021)
It is uncommon for a sequel to outperform the unique, however Venom: Let There Be Carnage does so in each attainable manner. It is funnier by a mile, the motion is far improved and the general story is significantly extra compelling. Plus this film truly finishes the origin story framework began within the first movie, with our primary character lastly deciding to be the “the deadly protector” anti-hero Venom. In case you appreciated the primary film, you are going to love this sequel. And should you weren’t completely bought on the unique Venom, there’s each probability you may like this film much more.
— Russell Holly
The place to look at it: Let There Be Carnage opened Oct. 1 within the US, and can hit UK theaters Oct. 15, whereas Australia has to attend till Nov. 25.
7. The Wonderful Spider-Man 2 (2014)
All of the work The Wonderful Spider-Man did to arrange Peter as a rough-around-the-edges Spider-Man who nonetheless had some determining to do when it comes to his ethical compass, got here crashing in on itself on this sequel.
Peter grew to become essentially the most chatty and assured Spidey iteration, torn between dragging Gwen into his drama, rekindling friendships from when he was a barely aware pre-teen (no surprise Harry was confused when Peter turned up at his door step) and exploding a poor man with electrical energy. Let’s undoubtedly not point out the more and more awkward scenes with Aunt Could.
As bloated and chaotic as Maguire’s Spider-Man 3. It’s going to offer you nightmares concerning the Inexperienced Goblin and never for the best causes.
— Jennifer Bisset
The place to look at it: The Wonderful Spider-Man 2 is obtainable to hire or purchase from Amazon Prime Video.
6. Spider-Man: Far From Dwelling (2019)
In a post-blip world, this Spider Man flick does an incredible job of returning to the core of what I really like concerning the films generally. The romance and awkwardness between Peter and MJ provides a extremely nostalgic really feel to this one, even when the remainder of the movie is extra flash than substance at occasions.
The results are spectacular, the twist is okay and Jake Gyllenhaal is a charismatic addition to the franchise — however what we care most about is Peter and his buddies. Which is precisely what these movies thrive on! Sure, he swings and has loopy spider abilities, however he is additionally a highschool child with a loopy crush on his greatest good friend. Seeing him take care of that as effectively as an element-controlling villain hellbent on destroying the world and the grief from the dying of his mentor? That is what I am right here for.
— Steph Panecasio
The place to look at it: Spider-Man: Far From Dwelling is obtainable to hire or purchase from Amazon Prime Video, and likewise accessible to stream by way of FuboTV, which prices $64.99 monthly.
5. The Wonderful Spider-Man (2012)
I am right here to let you know that this film’s rap for being a reasonably mediocre movie is — effectively, it is solely considerably honest.
The fittingly named Marc Webb, who directed (500) Days of Summer time, made the entire first third of this film really feel like a small unbiased movie. Peter goggling at Gwen from throughout the classroom. ‘Til Kingdom Come, initially written by Coldplay to be carried out with Johnny Money, taking part in over the skateboard scene.
After which there’s Peter’s Spider-Man actions truly mirroring skateboarding strikes, in addition to being extra spider-like than his counterparts. Andrew Garfield’s stutter, jazz arms and common endearing weirdness. The surprisingly attractive naked chest scene.
Some elements of this film rule. If solely its comedy wasn’t so cringe and compelled. If solely there weren’t so many miserable deaths. Garfield is underrated and I hope he will get one other probability by way of the multiverse in Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man 3.
— Jennifer Bisset
The place to look at it: The Wonderful Spider-Man is obtainable to hire or purchase on Amazon Prime Video, and likewise accessible to stream on Starz, which prices $8.99 monthly.
4. Spider-Man (2002)
As somebody who’s deathly afraid of spiders, I held out on watching this for the longest time, however regardless of some moments the place the arachnophobia obtained its fangs into me, it is effectively well worth the watch. From the overwhelmingly theatrical portrayal of Inexperienced Goblin by to some genuinely transferring moments (Uncle Ben, I am lookin’ at you), the entire thing was a experience from begin to end.
Positive, watching it again now has me cringing at a few of the memes, but it surely’s a genuinely nice place to begin with some spectacular motion and precisely the correct amount of ridiculousness for a superhero film. Sam Raimi balanced the foolish with the intense — one thing extra trendy superhero flicks ought to take inspiration from. It is not all solemn faces and punching! All in all, it is price it only for the performances from JK Simmons and Willem Dafoe alone.
— Steph Panecasio
The place to look at it: Spider-Man is obtainable to hire or purchase from Amazon Prime Video, and likewise accessible to stream on Starz, which prices $8.99 monthly.
3. Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)
It is exhausting to get enthusiastic about one other reboot. However when Spider-Man Homecoming got here alongside, bringing Spider-Man into the MCU, it was clear this one could be price it. In bypassing the character’s well-worn origin story, the franchise obtained a recent feeling launch that higher served Peter Parker’s growth and ensured a extra strong basis for the observe up.
Peter, MJ, Ned and the remainder of the crew made for plausible highschool college students — quirky and nonetheless new to the world. And as a lot as angst is constructed into Spider-Man’s DNA together with these spidey-bits, Tom Holland delivered a lighter, nearly irritatingly buoyant Peter Parker, just like the energetic child brother you possibly can’t assist however love.
— Erin Carson
The place to look at it: Spider-Man: Homecoming is obtainable to hire or purchase from Amazon Prime Video, and likewise accessible to stream by way of FuboTV, which prices $64.99 monthly.
2. Spider-Man 2 (2004)
Pizza time. The second live-action Spidey journey capitalizes on the momentum constructed up within the first film and sends Peter Parker on an unimaginable journey that riffs on the basic Spider-Man No Extra comedian storyline superbly.
It additionally boasts a killer villain in Alfred Molina’s Physician Octopus. The surgical procedure room scene is basic Sam Raimi and stays completely chilling 17 years later. His battle with Spidey on the prepare is a visible pleasure too — No Approach Dwelling higher do that man justice.
The tie-in online game was glorious too; it captured the enjoyment of web-swinging round Manhattan to a level that wasn’t equaled till the 2018 PS4 sport.
— Sean Keane
The place to look at it: Spider-Man 2 is obtainable to hire of purchase on Amazon Prime Video, and likewise accessible to stream on Starz, which prices $8.99 monthly.
1. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018)
Sony Footage Animation
Into the Spider-Verse is so good, we’ve got two entries on the purpose.
Into the Spider-Verse is not simply the most effective Spider-Man film ever made, it is the most effective superhero film ever made, interval.
The fast fireplace tempo, the visible thrives, the razor-tight script, the pitch excellent characterization. Into The Spider-Verse sidesteps tropes and creates a world so dense with particulars it rewards a number of, a number of viewings. It is as unforgettable on its tenth viewing because it was on the primary. An ideal film.
— Mark Serrels
Mark Serrels is completely proper. That being stated, Into the Spider-Verse is a lot extra than simply the most effective superhero film — it is an animated characteristic that experiments with visible aesthetics, variable framerates and groundbreaking methods to current us with one thing utterly in contrast to every other piece of characteristic animation in the marketplace. This Spider-Man is saving us from the mediocrity of one other by-the-numbers animated movie.
It would not harm that it is the solely Spider-Man movie courageous sufficient to let Peter Parker develop up and transfer on, both. Miles Morales endlessly.
