The OG Spider-Man movie trilogy from Sam Raimi is headed to Netflix next month. Happy days!

For many, the Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies starring Tobey Maguire are the best superhero movies that cinema has to offer and Netflix will soon be getting all three. Talk about having your Spider-Man cake and eating it!

First released in 2002, Spider-Man had a star-studded cast with not only Tobey Maguire as the friendly neighbourhood, web-slinging hero, but also Kirsten Dunst (Mary Jane Watson), Willem Dafoe (Harry Osborn/Green Goblin), and James Franco (Normal Osborn).

It even featured the best piece of casting in cinema history with J.K Simmons as Daily Bugle editor-in-chief, J. Johan Jameson. J.K Simmons's casting was so good, that his version of the grumpy tabloid boss even crossed over into the recent Tom Holland movies.

The first Spider-Man movie from Sam Rami earned a very respectable 90% score on Rotten Tomatoes with its sequel, which introduced Alfred Molina as Dr Octavius aka ‘Doc Ock’ earning an even better score of 93%.

Sadly, the same cannot be said about Spider-Man 3 which earned a very disappointing 63%. But the less said about that movie the better. Though to be fair, if it wasn't for that movie, we would never have gotten the emo-dancing Peter Parker.

Without giving too much away, elements of Sam Raimi's Spidey movies would return to the franchise with the MCU’s inter-dimensional Spider-Man: No Way Home. I know spoilers for that movie were rife, but in case you’ve not watched it yet, I won’t spoil anything here. But let’s just say, that movie is stacked.

The Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy will be coming to Netflix on 1 April 2023, no joke.

In related web-slinging news, Marvel Cinematic Universe chief Kevin Feige has confirmed that a fourth Spider-Man movie starring Tom Holland is on the way. What’s more, in gaming news, it seems that the voice actor of Venom in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 from Insomniac Games has revealed this year’s release date. Oops!
