We first saw actor Tobey Maguire in the role of Spider-Man 20 years ago today. The same-named film made its US debut on May 3, 2022. Peter Parker was swinging through German cinemas less than a month later in New York. The movie was a financial smash hit. In 2002, Spider-Man made $821 million in box office receipts.
Director Sam Raimi made Spider-Man into a trilogy
Following the success of Part 1, Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 3 were released in 2004 and 2007, respectively, resulting in director Sam Raimi’s trilogy. In the sequels, Tobey Maguire reprised his role as Spider-Man’s alter ego, Peter Parker. Sam Raimi, incidentally, is directing the next film in the now-expansive Marvel universe this week. He directed Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which is set to be released on May 5, 2022, and has already gotten some buzz online.
