Spider-Man remains one of the most popular heroes in the game, and for good reason, thanks to his live-action adventures. This includes the recently released Spider-Man: No Way Home, which debuted in December 2021 to a record-breaking reception financially and critically. Part of what made the Sony/Marvel team-up so successful was the way it paid tribute to the web-slinger's big-screen history at every turn.
While No Way Home was Tom Holland's third solo Spider-Man outing within the MCU, it was the eighth solo Spidey movie across three different franchises. Tobey Maguire teamed up with MCU newcomer Sam Raimi to deliver their Spider-Man trilogy from 2002 to 2007 before Andrew Garfield and Marc Webb delivered a duo of movies in their The Amazing Spider-Man franchise.
Holland, Maguire, and Garfield then teamed up in a way nobody thought possible thanks to the Multiverse coming apart at the seams. Now, as fans prepare for the epic threequel's home release, Sony is taking the opportunity to promote that history by bringing all eight movies into the spotlight.
Spider-Man Trailer Features All Eight Solo Movies
Sony Pictures released a 32-second mash-up trailer on the official Spider-Man YouTube channel featuring the eight live-action Spider-Man films from the 21st century. These movies are on sale digitally ahead of the home release for 2021's Spider-Man: No Way Home, which arrives on March 22.
All three movies from Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man trilogy have scenes in the trailer featuring Kirsten Dunst's Mary-Jane Watson, Alfred Molina's Doctor Octopus, and Thomas Hayden Church's Sandman. Both of Andrew Garfield's The Amazing Spider-Man movies are also featured thanks to shots of Rhys Ifans' Lizard and Jamie Foxx's Electro.
Although no scenes from No Way Home are included, both Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home make it into the trailer as well. Michael Keaton's Vulture and Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio are seen fighting against Tom Holland's MCU web-slinger.

Spider-Man Returns with a Vengeance
While no other specific details were revealed for this sale/re-release, Sony is clearly working to make sure fans are ready for the return of Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Earning the sixth-highest box office return of all time, No Way Home paid tribute to Spider-Man's entire cinematic history with nods to all seven movies that came before it. Three of Maguire's villains and two of Garfield's came through the Multiverse on a quest to take out their Spider-Men, leading to arguably the greatest crossover events since Avengers: Endgame.
These movies all become available for home viewing as No Way Home prepares for its home release. This allows for Spidey fans can watch them all consecutively. It seems only fitting that Sony is bringing its Spidey catalog back into the spotlight while fans eagerly await the opportunity to watch the MCU's Spider-Man threequel at will.
Spider-Man: No Way Home will be available for home release on March 22, 2022.
