20 years of Spider-Man: Sony Pictures releases special trailer to celebrate Tobey Maguire's superhero film
Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man

The Spider-Man movies are considered as the most successful adaptation of the superhero comic series. It all began 20 years before when the first superhero film was released, starring Tobey Maguire in the titular character as Spider-Man. The film, directed by Sam Raimi, became the first film to reach $100 million in a single weekend at that time. The superhero drama also stars Willem Dafoe, Kirsten Dunst, James Franco, Cliff Robertson, and Rosemary Harris.   

Now, to celebrate the 20 years of the first instalment of the Spider-Man trilogy, helmed by Sam Raimi, the Sony Pictures Entertainment have released a 56-seconds video. The promo video begins with the scene of the three Spideys (Maguire, Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland) landing on the Statue of Liberty in the Spider-Man: No Way Home movie. It then takes you on the journey of the superhero in retrospective. The video shares glimpses of the first film where Tobey is seen realising his strengths. And of course, the video also has the epic dialogue: 'With more power, comes great responsibility'.

The 2002 movie chronicles life of a student Peter Parker who gets bitten by a genetically-altered spider, giving him abilities and superpowers. Parker then wears a mask and helps fight crime in the city, becoming the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man. The film opened to great positive reviews with praises especially for the direction, performances, visual effects, action and music. The film led to two sequels - Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 3, which were released in 2004 and 2007 respectively. Maguire and Dafoe later reprised their roles in the recent MCU movie, Spider-Man: No Way Home. 

The film, Spider-Man is currently available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.
