There's a certain somebody that is on the lips of nearly everybody across the world: Spider-Man.
Why? Well, he only happens to be the star of the most anticipated movie of the year: Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Releasing on December 17, the film's debut is getting closer and closer. In doing so, fan conversation has been increasingly prevalent across social media channels.
Sometimes, it's even gotten heated, such as the conversation that has been raging on the internet over the past few hours.
What could possibly cause such an intense debate? A definitive ranking of all the Spider-Man movies. Even Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has gotten involved.
The Definitive Spider-Man Movie Ranking
The internet is aflutter after entertainment journalist Matt Ramos put his rankings of all the Spider-Man movies.
So what could cause such a mundane move to spark heated debate across the web? Well, Ramos not only put an unreleased movie (Spider-Man: No Way Home) in his number one spot, but both Homecoming and Far From Home occupied the bottom two spots.
My Spider-Man Movie Ranking: 1. #SpiderManNoWayHome 2. Into The Spiderverse 3. Spider-Man 2 4. Spider-Man 3 5. Spider-Man 6. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 7. The Amazing Spider-Man 8. Spider-Man Homecoming 9. Spider-Man Far From Home
Then Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn pitched in. He avoided directly commenting on Ramos' Tweet but did throw in his top three: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Spider-Man 2, and Homecoming.

Then, from there, fan conversation took off, and they never looked back. Folks such as content creator Caboose posted their rankings, claiming that it wasn't up for debate.

The Many Spider-Man Films
When it comes to conversations like these, they're often redundant; there is no definitive ranking. It's all opinion, after all, which is the antithesis of fact.
Either way, there is something called general opinion––otherwise known as the majority. Films such as Spider-Man 2 and Into the Spiderverse are commonly touted as the best, while the likes of Spider-Man 3 and Amazing Spider-Man 2 are known as the worst.
If one doesn't agree with those, well, they aren't wrong. They just simply have thoughts that don't line up with most people––which is perfectly okay.
It will be interesting to see where Spider-Man: No Way Home ends up on everyone's lists. It could end up being fantastic, or overly stuffed and busy; there's also the nostalgia factor that could boost many's opinions about the movie while negating any quality issues.
The world will know soon enough, as the film hits theaters worldwide on December 17.
