Spider-Man: No Way Home is released on December 15, 2021 and will turn Peter Parker’s adventures at the cinema upside down like never before. If you’ve picked this time to see or re-watch all of the Spider-Man movies, you’ll need to get there in the right order. We’re going to help you there with the Webweaver movie timeline: the Sony-era ones as well as the MCU’s Spider-Man movies.
The MCU opens up to the multiverse and Spider-Man : No Way Home will be one of the illustrations. The new feature will notably see the return of old characters from the previous ones films Spider-Man. This is the case of Doctor Octopus played by Alfred Molina in Sam Raimi’s trilogy. The other highlight of the last few months is obviously the postgeneric scene of Venom : Let There Be Carnage.
The end of the film laid the groundwork for a showdown between the symbiote and the spider-man. Eddie Brock and Venom thus projected themselves into the same reality as Peter Parker, which suggests an epic sequel. So many exciting developments that promise an interesting development for the continuation of Spidey’s adventures in solo as in the MCU.
But while waiting for the future and the madness of the multiverse, what if we take a leap into the past? If you want to revisit the Spider-Man movies from the start, here is chronological order to follow them in a consistent. From Spidey’s solo movies to his adventures with pals in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Spider-Man, the first film in Sam Raimi’s trilogy, kicked off the modern era of Marvel superhero movies the way we love them. Released in 2002, the feature film soberly titled Spider-Man adapts the adventures of Peter Parker on the big screens with Tobey Maguire in the skin of the young high school student. His life will be turned upside down following a spider bite that grants him superpowers.
A personal tragedy later prompts Peter Parker to use his supernatural strengths for the benefit of the community. With Spider-Man, Marvel remarkably brought one of the most popular superheroes in history to cinema. It is obviously with the film of 2002 that begins the chronological order of the films of Spidey.
Spider-Man 2 (2004)
Peter Parker learned to live with his heavy superhero costume. And when the hard trials linked to his double life push him to give up this status, his mentor Otto Octavius alias Doc Ock (played by Alfred Molina) turns into a supervillain. As the life of his partner Mary Jane is threatened, Peter has no choice but to change into his costume and take action again. As eye-catching as the first, Spider-Man 2 did not disappoint and remains one of the most beloved films of the saga.
Spider-Man 3 (2007)
Never two without three, but Sam Raimi’s third Spider-Man didn’t live up to the previous ones. However, the film released in 2007 is an essential link in the whole of the saga. Several secrets that were at the heart of the plot no longer exist. MJ like Harry, Peter’s best friend know the identity of Spider-Man.
Marry Jane and Peter Parker are ready to tie the knot, but that’s without counting the emergence of several enemies, including the Venom symbiote and the Sandman. Despite the criticism, Spider-Man 3 was the initial trilogy’s biggest commercial success with $ 894 million at the global box office. It is also the one that cost the most to produce.
Spider-Man : Into The Spider-Verse (2018)
At this point, we decided to insert the 2018 animated film, released years after the original trilogy and the first reboot of 2012. Simply because Spider-Man : Into the Spider-Verse allows to anticipate several events in the sequel and in particular opens the way to the multiverse which is more relevant than ever. This film chronicles the adventures of Miles Morales, a teenager like any other living in the same city as Spider-Man.
A perfect illustration of the Spider-Verse, the animated feature film shows us a Miles Morales with powers similar to those of Spidey. It opens the door to parallel dimensions where Spider-Man evolves into alternate versions that can interact with each other. Spider-Man : Into the Spider-Verse thus represents the perfect preparation to approach the continuation of the adventures of Peter Parker in the cinema with his new interpreters. Note that the Character Miles Morales is at the heart of a Spider-Man PS5 game.
The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)
Marc Webb has taken over from Sam Raimi at the helm of the Spider-Man reboot with Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker and Emma Stone as MJ. The Amazing Spider-Man relaunched the saga in 2012 and the director chose a guideline that contrasts with that of his predecessor. We discover a Spider-Man darker than the one played by Tobey Maguire.
While this choice is divisive, this interpretation is recognized by critics as being more in tune with the Spider-Man character from the Comics. The alchemy between Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone has also infused a different flavor to this relaunch.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 of 2014 saw the return of the main actors of the first film (2012). The director dared one of the aspects that served Spider-Man 3 by mixing several villains into the plot, including Electro, the Rinho or the Green Goblin. Peter Parker is still in a relationship with Gwen Stacy, his first great love. But their romance will come to a dramatic end.
Captain-America : Civil War (2016)
Spider-Man may be an independent vigilante, but his fate is tied to that of other famous characters in the MCU. While Marvel has been blocked by Sony’s licensing rights to the Spider-Man character for several years, Agreement between the two sides paved the way for Spidey’s integration into the MCU. And Captain-America : Civil War is the first illustration.
Peter Parker is played here by the young Tom Holland who joins the team of his mentor Tony Stark / Iron Man against that of Captain America. Although Spider-Man did not have a leading role in this film, his foray into the MCU universe was greeted with enthusiasm by audiences.
Spider-Man Homecoming (2017)
This is Spider-Man’s first solo film in the MCU. Taking place shortly after the events of Captain America : Civil War, this new Spider-Man film chronicles the new life of Peter Parker which is not the same since his secret mission alongside Iron Man and his team. The young superhero now considers himself an Avengers in search of other missions with the team of his mentor which gives him a new status. And yet, Spidey hasn’t finished sorting out his local superhero issues.
Avengers : Infinity War et Endgame (2018 et 2019)
Now fully in the MCU, Spider-Man takes part in the cataclysmic events of Infinity War. And join the Avengers team to stop Thanos. The big bad of the last Avengers has embarked on the quest for the six Infinity Stones. The success of this project is a great threat to the universe. While two of these Gems are on Earth, it will be overrun by forces from another world. Every superhero Spider-Man needs to lend a hand for a great fight that ended in Endgame and not without consequences.
He’s an inseparable villain in the Spider-Man universe. And yet … Given that Sony owns the rights to many characters linked to Spider-Man comics, the Japanese firm has decided to create its own cinematographic universe. Venom did not benefit from the deal between Sony and Marvel regarding Spider-Man. The character therefore evolves in a universe apart.
Venom, the 2018 film is the first of Sony Spider-Man Universe (without Spider-Man). We grant it to you, all this is very complicated but when we understand who has the right to what in view of the licenses and agreements, things appear less confused. The presence of Venom in this chronological list is important to tie all the films in the Spider-Man universe together.
And this, especially since crossovers in the multiverse are possible in the coming years if Sony and Marvel come to an agreement. And the signs are pretty good, as evidenced by the appearance of the Spider-Man in the post-credits scene of Venom : Let Ther be Carnage.
Spider-Man : Far From Home (2019)
The first Spider-Man movie after the events of Endgame introduces us to a doomed superhero after the death of his mentor Tony Stark. But the latter left him a legacy of his technological empire. Peter embarks on a school trip through Europe. He is contacted by Nick Fury to fight a group of enemies with the help of a new mysterious hero who lives up to his name: Mysterio.
Venom : Let There Be Carnage (2021)
Back in the Spider-Man Universe de Sony. After the big success of Venom the 2018 film, it was certain that Sony was going to deliver a sequel. In Venom : Let There Be Carnage, Eddie Brock gets used to the symbiote that inhabits him. It won’t be long before the two face the villainous Carnage, another insane and bloodthirsty symbiote that Venom fears.
This film is critically important to the sequel and interconnection of the MCU and the Sony Spdier-Man Universe (SSU). The film’s post-credits scene opens the way for a confrontation between Spider-Man and his eternal enemy from the Comics. And this, thanks to the magic of the multiverse.
Spider-Man : No Way Home (2021)
Spider-Man’s new solo movie ultimately won’t have repelled itself. He comes out on December 15, 2021 and is the one that truly paves the way for the establishment of a Spider-Man multiverse. Spider-Man projects himself into multiple parallel universes through interdimensional magic and under the mentorship of Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch).
We know that Spider-Man will face villains from previous films in the franchise. We are talking about the doctor octopus (still played by Alfred Molina) and d’Electro (Jamie Foxx). Rumor has it Venom is breaking into the movie after the post-credits scene from Let There Be Carnage. But nothing is confirmed yet. It is also about the return of the version of Maguire and Andrew Garfield of Spider-Man.
Much like Venom, Morbius is a character rooted in the Spider-Man universe. And Sony decided to give him a solo film in his SSU. Scheduled for release in 2022, Morbius whose main role is played by Jared Leto could very well know the participation of other characters including the MCU thanks to the magic of the multiverse. And why not, that of Spider-Man or Venom… the rumor is already circulating.
