Sony celebrates 20 years of Spider-Man movies with anniversary video

Before there was a Spider-Verse, there was Spider Man. Director Sam Raimi’s origin story took audiences for the ultimate ride in May 2002, surpassing Marvel’s live-action adaptations Blade and x-men becoming the first film in history to earn over $100 million in a single weekend. The hit trilogy starring Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst spawned a franchise, leading to a rebooted duology with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, an animated film spider wormsand a second reboot bringing Tom Holland’s wall-crawler into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

After bringing together three generations of Spider-Man in Spider-Man: No Coming Home, Sony has released “Spider-Man: Celebrating 20 Years at the Movies,” an anniversary video going back to the beginning with the Spider-Man who started it all. Maguire reprized the role in 2004 Spiderman 2 and 2007 Spiderman 3swinging in the Marvel Multiverse movie starring Garfield and Holland in No coming home.

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment also announced all Spider Man the movies are on sale now for a limited time at Spidey20th.com, where friendly neighborhood Spider-fans can watch the free 30-minute retrospective Not all roads lead home.

“None of the studios had any interest in Spider Man“, said Avi Arad, producer of the franchise and former president and CEO of Marvel Studios. Variety on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of 2002 Spider Man. “You name a studio, they turned it down. They thought, ‘It’s an old property. Obviously I thought that was the biggest property there. So we broke down the door. I told them, Spider Man alone is worth a billion dollars. I didn’t know, whoa, I was weak.”

Recalled Raimi, who returns to the realm of Marvel superheroes with Marvel Studios Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness“I knew even then that however big that opening weekend was, it wasn’t really the result of something we could claim as our own. It was on the shoulders of [co-creator] Stan Lee, of maybe 60 years of writers in the Marvel pens, artists and writers who had made cartoons Spider Man TV shows that kids loved.”

All Sony Spider Man movies, including Spider Man 2002, The Amazing Spider-Man, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verseand Spider-Man: Far From Homeare currently for sale on Spidey20th.com.
