With the new Spider-Man now in theaters, Marc Webb's reboot “The Amazing Spider-Man,” it's time to take a few minutes to remember the original trilogy, the franchise that actually made it all possible for today's superhero films.
Without a doubt, none of today's superhero movies would have been in such high demand had it not been for Sam Raimi's Spider-Man.
Even his third and most critically panned installment is essential from this point of view, says Kees van Dijkhuizen, who edited the video above.
It's a 6-minute tribute to Sam Raimi and the original Spider-Man.
“The superhero genre wouldn't be what it is today were it not for Sam Raimi's original Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 3. The trilogy brought the hero to the screen like we'd never seen before and is one of the landmarks in American film,” Kees van Dijkhuizen writes in the description of the video.
“With the release of Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man, it's time to celebrate one of the most amazing trilogies ever to hit the screen,” Kees adds.
