List Rules Vote up the best movies in the Spider-Man franchise.

The first Spider-Man movie to come out was in the ‘80s and was actually a pilot for a short-lived television series. Since that film, there have been several more Spider-Man movies including the trilogy that started in 2002 starring Tobey Maguire. Spider-Man continued on with the Amazing Spider-Man reboot starring Andrew Garfield. The most recent incarnation of Peter Parker is in the hands of the actor Tom Holland as he goes on to make Spider-Man films that are included in the MCU. But let’s be fair, all of these movies are classics or at least memorable. One of them has to be the best of the Spider-Man movies. Will it be the first Spider-Man film or maybe one of the follow-ups such as Spider-Man: Homecoming that will make it to the top of the list? Or could the animated dark horse Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse beat them all?

If you've ever asked yourself, how many Spider-Man movies are there? Look below to see all the films featuring your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man listed with the year they were released so you can watch them chronologically or in order of best to worst.

Your votes will help determine the best movies and series in Spider-Man franchise. Vote up the movies you loved and vote down Spider-Man films you didn't like to ensure the right movie makes it to the top of the list.
