Spider-Man movies in order

We will sort Spider-Man movies in order of their respected universes, but also, how you should watch them before No Way Home, which actually brings them all together, to some extent.

Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man Trilogy

Sam Raimi first started directing Spider-Man movies with Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker. It could be said that those Spider-Man movies started this golden age of superhero movies we currently live in. They were also hugely successful and have a huge fan base all over the world even today.

Spider-Man (2002)

Student Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) is bitten by a genetically modified spider. Peter soon discovers that he possesses extraordinary powers: he is gifted with the power and abilities of spiders with particularly sharpened spider senses.

Meanwhile, megalomaniac businessman, Norman Osborn (Willem Dafoe) is also going through some unusual changes. The experimental formula exploded in his face, increasing his intelligence and strength, but at the same time driving him crazy. He becomes the Green Goblin, Spider-Man’s greatest enemy, who will put Peter Parker’s vow to fight crime and help the innocent to the ultimate test.

Spider-Man 2 (2004)

Parker’s longing for Mary Jane (Kirsten Dunst) grows stronger as he struggles with the urge to reveal his other face to her and declare his love for her.

Marc Webb’s Spider-Man Duology

Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man movies are a reboot of Sam Raimi’s trilogy. Andrew Garfield stars as Peter Parker in these two movies. Unfortunately, it hasn’t earned enough at the box office to justify making a trilogy. Again, it is good to watch these two movies before watching No Way Home.

The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)

This is the story of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), an insecure high school student who was abandoned by his parents as a child and left to Uncle Ben (Martin Sheen) and Aunt May (Sally Field).

This brings him directly to the Oscorp Corporation and the laboratory of Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans), his father’s former partner. Peter will soon have to make big decisions that will shape his destiny and make him a hero.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there is no better feeling than when he swings between skyscrapers, when everyone accepts him as a hero and when he spends time with Gwen (Emma Stone).

Jon Watts’s Spider-Man Trilogy

And we came to the current Spider-Man and, for now, its movie trilogy. Tom Holland as Peter Parker this time. Holland wasn’t only Peter Parker/Spider-Man in these three movies, he also starred in multiple other MCU movies, such as Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame. Of course, these movies are crucial to be watched in order by their release date.

And the right moment for that may come much earlier than Peter had hoped, when a new villain appears in the city – The Vulture (Michael Keaton).

Spider-Man: Far from Home (2019)

Far from Home
