How to Watch the Spider-Man Movies in Order, from ‘Spider-Man’ to ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’

From the original Sam Raimi trilogy to the Sony-Marvel venture starring Tom Holland, people love Spider-Man on the big screen. After the exciting adventure that was Spider-Man: No Way Home, the desire to rewatch all of the films about Peter Parker struck fans. So for those looking to watch all of the Spider-Man movies in order, here’s a complete guide.

Sam Raimi’s ‘Spider-Man’ is the first of the movies in release-date order

Premiering in 2002, Tobey Maguire played a shy and nerdy teenager, Peter Parker. After he’s bitten by a radioactive spider on a school field trip, Peter becomes Spider-Man. 

Spider-Man grossed more than $403 million at the domestic box office, according to Box Office Mojo. A huge success, fans and critics alike enjoyed the action scenes and humor Maguire brought to the role. 

Maguire starred in the hit film alongside fellow cast members Kirsten Dunst (Mary Jane Watson), Willem Dafoe (Green Goblin/Norman Osborn), and James Franco (Harry Osborn) among others.

In 2019, Maguire addressed rumblings regarding his plan to put on the Spidey suit again. “I just don’t really have an ‘I would or wouldn’t do’ mindset, I’ll just do whatever…whatever it is that comes that I feel called to, that may or may not fit in any kind of box,” he told The Hollywood Reporter.

‘Spider-Man 2’ came next

Maguire reprised his role as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in a sequel, which hit theaters in 2004. Up against Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock, the character still found ways to make audiences laugh while saving the world one web at a time. 

The sequel earned $373 million is the U.S., nearly as much as the original. While sequels often get a bad rap for falling short of their predecessors, Spider-Man 2 received higher ratings from many critics.

Raimi completed his trilogy with ‘Spider-Man 3’

For a third time, Maguire wore the Spider-Man suit when Sony released Spider-Man 3 in 2007. Almost exactly five years after the first installment hit theaters, the third film saw Franco’s Harry Osborn (Peter’s best friend), — spoiler alert — become the villain, credited as the New Goblin.

Like the sequel, the third film brought in even bigger profits. Spider-Man 3 grossed slightly less than the first two flicks, bringing in $336 million at the U.S. box office. So why no more sequels? Raimi left the project, ultimately not returning to a Marvel flick until 2022’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Sony rebooted the franchise with ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’

Bringing fresh blood to the franchise, Andrew Garfield took over for Maguire as Spider-Man in The Amazing Spider-Man, which hit theaters in 2012. The British actor starred in the film alongside Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy), Rhys Ifans (The Lizard/Dr. Curt Connors), Denis Leary (Captain Stacy), Martin Sheen (Uncle Ben), and Sally Field (Aunt May). 

The first Garfield-led Spider-Man movie made $262 million in U.S. sales.

‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ ended Garfield’s run

Two years later, The Amazing Spider-Man film series returned. Garfield reprised his role as Peter Parker/Spider-Man. Opening in theaters in 2014, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 made $202 million at box offices in the U.S.

Unlike the other Spider-Man movies, Garfield didn’t get to complete a trilogy. However, Marvel fans continue to push for The Amazing Spider-Man 3. In fact, the current webslinger gave his ‘full support’ for the project, according to

Marvel and Sony teamed up for ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’

The first Tom Holland Spider-Man movie is Spider-Man: Homecoming. The star took over the lead role from Garfield in 2017 when the joint Sony-MCU project premiered in 2017.

When watching the Spider-Man movies in order, don’t forget about this offering. In between premieres of the live-action films, Sony released Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, an animated adventure that earned itself an Academy Award. 

Jake Johnson (New Girl) voiced Peter Parker while other actors such as Nicolas Cage (Spider-Man Noir), Lily Tomlin (Aunt May), Hailee Steinfeld (Gwen Stacy), Shameik Moore (Miles Morales), and Mahershala Ali (Uncle Aaron) lent their voices to the animated film. 

The 2018 film made $190 million in the U.S. alone.

Holland returned for ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’

Holland reprised his role as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the second installment in the franchise, set after the events of Avengers: Endgame. Jake Gyllenhaal joined the cast as Quentin Beck/Mysterio, who teaches Peter about the multiverse ended before it becomes a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Spider-Man: Far From Home premiered in 2019. It brought in more than $390 million at the U.S. box office, becoming the second when ranking the Spider-Man movies in order from highest-grossing to least.

The Spider-Men teamed up for ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’

What’s better than one Spider-Man? How about three? Despite premiering during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic’s Omicron surge, with a delayed release date, Spider-Man: No Way Home made a splash on the big screen.

After years of rumors, Holland finally entered the multiverse. And joining him? Maguire and Garfield’s Peter Parkers, in a movie moment for the ages. Fans loved the team-up so much, they told all their friends. And it paid off — the movie racked in more than $760 million in the U.S. alone.
