The latest in a long line of groundbreaking Marvel films is out this week.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is a new adventure that follows Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) on a new multiversal journey, along with new and old faces. However, this wall-crawling menace has been in movies for decades and is played by Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland.

To prepare you for the Spider-Verse, here are the Spider-Man Movies Ranking.

10. Spider-Man 3 (2007)


The Weakest Spider-Man Movie is the third installment in the Sam Raimi trilogy. (Shocking, we know that.)

Just for the record, thought? Spider-Man 3 remains an entertaining film with excellent moments. The Spider-Man and Flint Marko/Sandman (Thomas Haden Church) storyline, with Sandman’s tie-in to Uncle Ben’s death, is well written. However, there are too many subplots to weigh down the film, such as the ridiculous storyline of Eddie Brock/Venom (Topher Grace) and the unnecessary addition of Gwen Stacy (Bryce Dallas Howard). This film also mishandles the relationship between Peter and MJ (Kirsten Dunst), reducing it to a low-stakes joke for most of the runtime.

(Oh, and while it’s famous for the Bully Maguire/emo Peter Parker memes, those moments are actually some of the best in the movie. ‘Nuff said!)

9. The Incredible Spider-Man (2012)


After plans for Raimi’s Spider-Man 4 fell through, the series was rebooted with The Amazing Spider-Man directed by Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer) and starring Andrew Garfield as the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. While there are funny moments, it’s the most generic of all the Spider-Man films. The dark color palette doesn’t match the colorful hero and it feels like a dark tale by the numbers with some storylines that never get resolved.

8. The Incredible Spider-Man 2 (2014)


The sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man brings things up a notch. It enhances the suit, Marc Webb stages the swing sequences perfectly and there is incredible background music by Hans Zimmer. Then-couple Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone have the best chemistry of any Spider-Man romance, and there are plenty of tender scenes to show it. However, the film is slowed down by the same flaws as Spider-Man 3. Deliberately attempting to direct the Sinister Six, this Spider-Man film feels overflowing with storylines and characters. The Harry Osborn/Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan) storyline is terrible and Jamie Foxx’s electro isn’t used well enough.

7. Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)


In Spider-Man: Far From Home, Peter Parker takes his friends on a field trip to Europe. The idea of ​​a high school student trying to impress the girl he likes while secretly trying to save the world gets a lot of buzz in this film. It introduces Jake Gyllenhaal as Quentin Beck/Mysterio and he proves to be a formidable presence in the film. Far From Home is a fun, high-energy adventure that hinges on Peter making one of his worst decisions yet.

6. Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)


This film was the first standalone Spider-Man film to be set in the MCU, and newcomer Tom Holland had quite a bit to offer. Luckily, his charisma and easygoing energy brought it all to this film. He spends the film proving himself to Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), and the result is a fun, low-stakes adventure. Michael Keaton is fantastic as Adrien Toomes/Vulture, and Jon Watts directs this film like a classic 1980’s John Hughes film.

5. Spider-Man (2002)


This film is iconic. It’s the Spider-Man movie that many people grew up with; the one that introduced moviegoers to Marvel’s friendly neighborhood wall crawler. It features Willem Dafoe’s absolutely perfect performance as Norman Osborn/Green Goblin, as well as one of the most unforgettable screen kisses of all time. (Don’t worry – Dafoe isn’t involved.) It’s a fantastic origin story, and while some elements haven’t aged perfectly, it still remains an entertaining time.

4. Spider-Man 2 (2004)


One of the best Spider-Man movies is definitely Spider-Man 2, which has one of the best stories in the series. The Green Goblin was a difficult villain to follow, but Alfred Molina as Dr. Otto Octavius/Doc Ock caused a stir in this summer blockbuster. It’s an age-old comic set-up centered on Peter’s struggle to juggle his personal, professional, and superhero lives. Watching him return to full form with the mind-blowing move sequence is satisfying, and the emotionally intense ending ensures everything is in perfect spirits.

3. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (2023)


This movie could be linked to the first Spider-Verse movie as one of the best superhero movies of all time. It’s brilliantly written, with stunning animation and many standout sequences. The characters from the first film are taken in new, interesting ways, and bring back all the humor and drama you would expect. The core of the film is in the core, and the story is full of twists and turns that leave you wanting more once the credits roll.

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


The Spider-Man movie no one was expecting turned out to be one of the best parts of the series. An animated film without Peter Parker as the protagonist was a risk, but the story of Miles Morales doing his best to follow in Spider-Man’s footsteps is inspiring. It’s a spirited adventure that gives the character a lot of confidence while not sticking to the limitations of live-action. The scene where Miles takes a leap of faith gives you goosebumps and every pinprick is great.

1. Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021)


Spider-Man: No Way Home is the culmination of decades of Spider-Man content. The writing style might be a little rough around the edges, but the film captivates the audience enough to keep them hooked for nearly three hours. The final 45 minutes – pitting Maguire, Garfield and Holland against a bevy of villains – is a superhero experience that will take your breath away.
