Spider-Man gave us an origin story of great power and great responsibility, in more ways than one, but also a story that ordinary nerds could relate to.

From humble origins as a throwaway character in a cancelled comic book title, to Marvel's flagship character, a movie version of Spider-Man has been in the works since the early '80s with differing results.

Enjoy my new feature "Corman, Cannon, Carolco and Columbia"! A trip through the web of un-made Spider-Man movies of years past, but how each of them made Sam Raimi's Spider-Man (2002) possible, and with it started breaking financial box office records left, right and centre.

I am so high, I can hear heaven.

I would love to hear your thoughts on Spider-Man (2002) !
