Peter Parker debuted in a live-action role for the first time in the film Spider-Man, released in 2002. The upside-down kiss between Tobey Maguire’s portrayal of Spider-Man and Kirsten Dunst’s portrayal of Mary Jane may still be considered one of the most famous kisses in the history of film.

Other memorable moments in this original film include Peter first discovering his “Spidey-Sense,” competing in a wrestling match as a complete amateur, and more. Oh, and it’s Willem Dafoe’s first picture as Harry Osborne/Green Goblin and J.K. Simmons’s first film as J. Jonah Jameson. Both of these characters are ones that Willem Dafoe and J.K. Simmons would go on to play in subsequent films.

Will There Be a Spider-Man 4 Movie?

Rumors of a new movie (Spider-Man 4) have been buzzing around Hollywood for quite some time. Spider-Man: No Way Home was such a success that we can’t imagine Marvel wouldn’t green light that sequel. Earlier this year, the President of Marvel is said to have alluded to an upcoming project for Tom Holland as Spider-Man, but no specific storyline details or release dates were mentioned.

It does seem like fans will get another film, if not three more films, in the Spider-Man franchise. However, with the Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike, the production is most likely delayed as is the case for many other projects. We’ll have to stay tuned for more news on Spider-Man, but for now, it’s safe to say it won’t be released this year or next year, but maybe by 2025.
