Spider-Man - Spoilercast #59
Your friendly neighbourhood web-head swings his way through the podcast as we break down, from beginning to classic end, 2002's Spider-Man in this spoiler episode.
We begin our journey through the original Spidey trilogy with a review of the film that brought superheroes to the mega-budget level in this long-awaited and classic origin story of our friendly neighborhood web-head.
The 1st chapter of Raimi's originals features a 'teenage' Peter Parker, a great cast and a classic setup for the wallcrawler's 1st major villain - the Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe didn't even need makeup)!
It's a tough balancing act as we witness the birth of Spider-Man in a rollercoaster of both charming fun and devastating tragedy.
PLUS! Groundbreaking web-slinging scenes, big budget Spidey action, THE classic superhero dilemmas, major consequences AND life lessons learned - But, does it hold up?
Join Chris & Vinnie in all of this and more leading up to 2017's (and for the 1st time - Marvel's) Spider-Man: Homecoming.
