James Gunn is quite the known name in the superhero genre. Writer and director of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy (the third installment is currently in production and set to debut in May 2023) and DC’s The Suicide Squad and its spin-off show Peacemaker (which will premiere in January) now shared on Twitter what are his favorite Spider-Man movies. Top 3 Spider-Man movies to be precise.
Gunn recently retweeted the tweet of the entertainment journalist Matt Ramos (who already set No Way Home as his favorite Spider-Man movie by the way), revealing that his favorite Spider-Man movie is Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, followed by Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man and Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Homecoming. Too bad he didn’t reveal the rest of the ranking, I’d really love to see what’s his least favorite.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is an animated movie that was released in December 2018. The first animated movie in the Spider-Man franchise received critical acclaim and it won an Academy Award for the Best Animated Feature. The sequel is set to hit theaters in October 2022, and the spin-off movie is also in development.
Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2 is widely known as one of the best superhero movies of all time. Its main villain, Doctor Octopus, played by Alfred Molina, is set to make a huge return in Spider-Man: No Way Home this December.
Spider-Man: Homecoming, Jon Watts’ first MCU movie, and the first Spider-Man solo movie starring Tom Holland, was released in July 2017. Spider-Man’s MCU trilogy is set to be concluded in less than a month with Spider-Man: No Way Home, which is described as Spider-Man: Endgame by the director.
Spider-Man: No Way Home will be released on December 17. If you haven’t (what am I talking about, of course you have) seen the trailer yet, you can check it out (or rewatch it for a zillionth time) down below:
