With Spider-Man: No Way Home already banking on nostalgia, there’s no better time to remember the legacy of Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy.
Contrary to The Fantastic Four and to some extent the X Men, Spider Man had the benefit of having a trilogy of films that many still fondly remember. So much so that Sam Raimi’s Spidey films serve as inspiration for constant fan art, especially with the hype surrounding Spider-Man: No Path Home.
While the last of Raimi Spider Man the movies clearly don’t look the same to fans, the first two have helped unlock the billion dollar market that is the kind of superhero movie today. Of course, it also helps that Raimi’s movies have some of the most emotional moments in Spider ManThe relatively expansive history of cinema, two of which have been beautifully captured to honor the origins of the web swingers in print.
Thanks to artist WhyNotStuff (@WhyNotStuff), that of Raimi Spider Man gets a comic book touch that makes some scenes in the movie look completely ageless. This is something that movies can’t quite achieve given their late 2000s special effects. The first of them is obviously the first. Spider Man film featuring the epic confrontation scene between Peter Parker and Norman Osborn, aka the Green Goblin, just before the latter’s murderous urges lead to his own death.
The level of detail in this comic book rendition is quite astonishing, as it even captures Spider-Man’s torn mask, is released with a specific date of May 2002, and it’s even captioned with Peter’s quote to honor uncle Ben. The second cover features a shot of one of the most exciting sequences in Spider-man 2 and one that might be a bit familiar when No way home premieres, as the trailer already features a high-speed train chase.
While Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock is nowhere to be found in this one, the impact of it is nonetheless the same given how the artist managed to capture the expression on Tobey Maguire’s face. These two fan-made covers couldn’t have come at a better time, given Spider-Man: No Path Home The Green Goblin confirmed in its first official poster and recent leaks have fueled more rumors involving Maguire and Andrew Garfield, despite the latter’s complicated relationship with the Spider Man franchise.
That said, with Dafoe returning as part of this near-Sinister Six lineup, almost confirmed now, every other element of Spider Man Information should be taken with a grain of salt, especially now that Charlie Cox’s name has resurfaced as the potential face behind that epic cameo teased by Holland.
Spider-Man: No Path Home hits theaters on December 17, 2021.
