We don’t like spoilers, but we will happily share a rumour with you if you are a fan Spider-Man and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Things are about to get confusing timeline-wise.
The release of Spider-Man : No Way Home at the end of 2021 marked the third installment of the current Spider-Man series.
This is the Spider-Man that you’ve been living under. It is the one that gave birth to Hollywood’s most adorable couple, Zendaya and Tom Holland.
It was the one that was in the amalgamation characters, plots and worlds when Avengers ended in one of the most important blockbusters of all time.
However, despite the success of the Avengers franchise , No Way Home is still the eighth highest-grossing movie worldwide.
It has made an impressive $1.53 billion worldwide box office take, surpassing both The Avengers, and its sequel, Age of Ultron which each made $1.518 million and $1.4 billion, respectively. No Way home isn’t even out yet.
We ask, “Why?”
These films are not only great for Tom Holland as Spidey but also have a unique director’s vision that no one else has attempted.
It’s clear that Tom Holland is not the only Spider-Man. His remakes are only a few decades after the original film starring Andrew Garfield.
Erik Sommers, Chris McKenna and Chris McKenna were both screenwriters who saw great potential there. They wanted to bring back the villains we had seen in Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man as well as Tobey Maguire’s mid-2000s version.
As Jamie Foxx, Alfred Molina and others began to confirm their return to the MCU as Spider-Man villains respectively, speculation quickly erupted.
Are Andrew and Tobey coming back?
However, we won’t spoil the surprise for you. We are just there to help you understand the timelines that are about to become more complicated.
Disney has taken it upon itself to reveal the true ordering of the endless stream films in the MCU. Spider-Man takes a step outside of it, since the original two series were produced by Columbia Pictures and Sony.
We think that the only way is to watch them in order. You need to order them. Here’s how!
Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man
You can catch all of Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man films in their early 2000’s glory on BINGE. For reference, that’s:
- Spider-Man (2002)
- Spider-Man 2 (2004)
- Spider-Man 3 (2007)
Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man
The delightful Andrew Garfield (in the role that introduced him to Emma Stone, no less), can be seen as Spider-Man in the following, again on BINGE:
- The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)
- The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)
Tom Holland’s Spider-Man
The older are a bit more difficult, but you will still need your BINGE log in.
- Spider-Man Homecoming 2017 is available on BINGE.
- Spiderman: Far from Home (2019). It is available on Netflix. You can also rent it on iTunes or Google Play.
You can just follow the year order until you are ready to see No way home. You might have seen it before and are now trying to make sense of the situation by watching a marathon of movies!
All Spidey stans, best of luck!
