Spider-Man Trilogy Sam Raimi SonyTom Holland’s Spider-Man is a full-fledged member of the Avengers, but the character has a long history on the big screen. Before Captain America: Civil War and the (not so) Amazing Spider-Man series, Sam Raimi helmed a trilogy starring everyone’s favorite web-head. A B-horror director with a flair for silly moments, Raimi was the perfect choice to bring this quirky character to life.

While they’re far from perfect, Sam Raimi’s movies are gems within the superhero genre. Behind all the whimsical energy and the jokes is a stable of great characters who carry the series forward. No matter how efficient and effective the trilogy is at bringing joy to audiences, there are still a few behind-the-scenes secrets that people don’t know about.

    It was cool, I just would rather see venom and Green goblin in their definitive incarnations show up in a spider man movie, I don’t think a solo venom is needed. All these characters would serve an mcu Spider-Man film much better cementing it in Spider-Man lore. But nooo we got to get separate weird movies that don’t feel like they have anything in common except they are all based on preexisting comic book characters.

    Hate this new Hollywood trend, just give us definitive movies first with the new MCU ability and technology then start branching off!

    Spider-Man isn’t the avengers and hes been around for years!!
