All the Spider-Man Movies in Order You need to watch Before No Way Home

Can you believe it has now been nearly 20 years since Spider-Man got his first outing on the big screen? Whether Tobey McGuire, Andrew Garfield and Venom show up or not, with No Way Home coming out tomorrow, it might be a good time to brush up on your Spider-Man. Here’s how to watch all the Spider-Man movies in order:

1. Spider-Man (2002)

Sam Raimi brought the web-slinger to the big screen in fine form for this acclaimed blockbuster, which sees Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) come face to face with iconic foe, Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe).

Spider-Man 2 (2004)

The high point of Raimi’s trilogy, Spider-Man 2 is widely regarded as one of the greatest superhero films ever made, chronicling Peter Parker’s clash with the terrifying Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina).

Spider-Man 3 (2007)

This final outing for Maguire’s Spider-Man was something of a misstep, biting off more than it could chew with the inclusion of three villains, none of which particularly resonated with audiences.

While still a financial success, the cold critical reaction to the film, in particular an ill-advised dance number,  ultimately encouraged Sony to reboot the franchise with a younger lead actor and fresh continuity.

Nevertheless, Spider-Man 3 does have its defenders; there are a handful of great moments and the film does a serviceable job of wrapping up character arcs set up earlier in the trilogy.

The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)

Andrew Garfield took over the web-shooters for this reboot, which retells Spider-Man’s tragic origin in a somewhat more grounded way.

Emma Stone co-stars as the ill-fated Gwen Stacy, while Rhys Ifans takes on the role of troubled scientist Dr Curt Connors, better known by his supervillain alter-ego: The Lizard.

While by no means revolutionary, most critics agreed that The Amazing Spider-Man was a fun and promising new take on Marvel’s wisecracking wall-crawler.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

Remember Electro? Revisit Jamie Foxx’s supervillain role before he returns to in No Way Home.

Captain America Civil War (2016)

Captain America: Civil War, which split all of the Avengers and their superhuman peerage into two ideologically opposed camps, presented the MCU with an opportunity that wasn’t even conceivable when Iron Man was released in 2008: the inclusion of Spider-Man, played by Tom Holland as the younger version of the wall-crawler

Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)

Homecoming gave Holland his first full solo movie as he returned to Queens after meeting nearly a dozen of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in the airport battle from 2016’s Captain America: Civil War. The film led to an epic duel with Michael Keaton’s Vulture as Peter learned what it really meant to be a superhero having Tony Stark as a mentor

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018)

Peter Parker isn’t the only Spider-Man in New York. And, if you count multiverses, there are even more, including Spider-Ham, Penny Parker, Spider Gwen, Spider Noir and Peter B. Parker. In this animated delight, Brooklyn teen Miles Morales teams up with all of these variants to help keep the universe intact and safe from the dreaded Kingpin.

Avengers Infinity War (2018) and Avengers Endgame (2019)

Holland reprised his role for this epic crossover which sees the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy merge in a brutal confrontation against Thanos and his sinister followers.

Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)

Two years after Homecoming came Spider-Man: Far From Home, the final film of Phase 3 and the first after the game-changing Avengers: Endgame. Peter Parker returned after being snapped out of existence for five long years, and after going through his entire sophomore year in high school, he embarked on a European trip with his classmates to take a break from the superhero life…or so he thought.

Venom Let There Be Carnage (2021)

Tom Hardy returns to the big screen as the lethal protector Venom, one of MARVEL’s greatest and most complex characters.  Watch until the end of the credits to see more Spider threads come together.

Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021)
