Spider-man has come home to Marvel now. His short cameo in Captain America: Civil War was eagerly awaited and much loved. We were ready for a new Spider-man in a span of 15 years. While there are still those who feel that Tobey Maguire is the only Spider-man, and there is no doubt it was he who made us fall in love with the superhero, we all know what happened to the third movie. Fox and Sony are probably the ones to thank for the easy acceptance of Marvel characters. But we are glad Spider-man is right back where he belongs. Since the Homecoming is releasing this week, let's rank the previous versions from worst to best.

Spider-Man 3

As mentioned earlier, this was the worst thing to come out of the franchise. Although Venom was a formidable villain, emo Peter Parker did not work with everyone. Also, they couldn't handle multiple villains together.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

This movie learned nothing from Spider-Man 3 and had too many villains as well. The death of Gwen Stacy did not go down well with the fans. It seems like they raised the stakes while the cinema goers were not ready for it. 

The Amazing Spider-Man

This movie tells you that some things are rather left alone. After the disaster that Spider-Man 3 was, they shouldn't have tried rebooting it. While Andrew Garfield's chemistry with Emma Stone was the best thing ever, it could not live up to the hype of the movie.

Spider-Man 2

Whoever thinks that Dr. Octopus is the best villain yet, share this article. He was smart, witty and realized the error of his ways. Isn't that all you need in a villain? Also, Tobey Maguire was more comfortable with his role by this movie.


Green Goblin is the only reason this movie is on the top of this list. Willem Dafoe's performance makes us want to watch this movie over and over again. Also, as they say, there's nothing better than the original.
