It has been a little more than 20 years since Spider-Man swung into the hearts of moviegoers around the world with Sam Raimi’s live-action adaptation of the iconic comic book property. Since then, we have seen multiple versions of Peter Parker (and other Web-Slingers) take to the screen on separate adventures, as well as the incredible Spider-Man: No Way Home with its story that brought Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland’s Web-Heads together for an epic showdown with the Sinister Six’s biggest baddies. And let’s not forget the Spider-Verse movies, which are at or near the top of our list of Spider-Man movies, ranked.
With the future of the MCU’s Spider-Man 4 up in the air, and the animated Beyond the Spider-Verse having its premieres date removed from the 2024 release schedule, who knows when we’ll see any version of the fan-favorite comic book character return to the big screen. That being said, it has never been easier to watch the previous Spider-Man movies streaming. Here’s how!
The Sam Raimi Spider-Man Movies Streaming
Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy gave comic book fans two of the best superhero movies (and 2007’s Spider-Man 3), and helped usher in a new era for the genre starting in 2002. Following Tobey Maguire’s Peter Parker from socially-inept high school newspaper photographer to the Big Apple’s number one hero (and dancer), the three films in Raimi’s franchise were something to behold. In the past, all three movies have been on services like Starz and Plex but are currently only available for purchase or rental.
The 2002 superhero origin story that is Spider-Man centers on Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) as he transformed into the iconic webslinger, dealing with all the responsibility that comes with his great power. After Norman Osborn (Willem Dafoe) goes off the deep end and becomes the maniacal Green Goblin, it’s up to Spider-Man to stop his evil plans and try to find redemption for the man who sees him like a son.

Spider-Man 2 (2002)
Spider-Man 2 sees Peter Parker dealing with his most powerful enemy yet: himself. Overwhelmed with self-doubt and other personal issues, Parker begins to lose his powers just as Dr. Otto Octavius (Alfred Molina) is transformed into Dr. Octopus following a failed nuclear fusion experiment.
Spider-Man 3 (2007)
Spider-Man 3 has a lot going on with multiple villains, subplots, and the infamous Peter Parker dance scene. When Spider-Man’s suit gets a new look and powers from a mysterious symbiote, he slowly becomes everything he hated and more. On top of that, he has to face off with a trio of his most iconic comic book enemies — Harry Osborn’s (James Franco) take on the Green Goblin, Venom (Topher Grace), and Sandman (Thomas Haden Church) — in a series of over-the-top battles.

The Amazing Spider-Man Movies Streaming
In 2012, the Spider-Man franchise took a step in a different direction with the introduction of Mark Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man movies. Based on the comic series of the same name, the reboot series saw Andrew Garfield take over the role of Peter Parker as he is transformed into the iconic webslinger. And who knows, maybe we’ll get to see the scrapped Amazing Spider-Man 3 sequel one of these days.
The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)
The first of two movies, The Amazing Spider-Man started out in a similar manner to its 2002 counterpart, but instead of having Peter Parker take on the Green Goblin as his first test, this summer blockbuster focused Dr. Curt Connors’ (Rhys Ifans) Lizard, who nearly pushed Spider-Man to the breaking point, both physically and mentally.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)
In 2014, Andrew Garfield returned as Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which saw him take on the electricity-manipulating Electro (Jamie Foxx) while also dealing with his former best friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) in an emotional showdown.
The MCU Spider-Man Movies Streaming
Just when it looked like the Marvel Cinematic Universe couldn’t get any better, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man made his debut in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, ushering in a new era (which might last for longer than originally thought) for the beloved character and comic book movies in general. It also doesn’t hurt that these are some of the best movies on Disney+.
Captain America: Civil War (2016)
The first of three movies directed by Anthony and Joe Russo to have Spider-Man as part of a large ensemble cast, Captain America: Civil War skipped the Peter Parker origin story entirely and instead introduced the webslinger after he had already gained his powers when coming to the aid of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) in his showdown with Steve Rogers (Chris Evans).
Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)
Picking up not long after the events of Captain America: Civil War, 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming follows Peter Parker as he fights crime, teenage angst, and the father of his high school crush in an epic adventure that shows Spider-Man leave the friendly neighborhood for an epic showdown in the nation’s capital.
Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
Following an unprecedented buildup and more than a dozen movies, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes finally took on the Mad Titan, Thanos, as he aimed to complete his life’s work of using the six infinity stones to bring balance and peace to the universe by wiping out half of all life. Everyone from the newly christened Avenger Spider-Man to the Guardians of the Galaxy band together to prevent the unthinkable from happening in Avengers: Infinity War.
Avengers: Endgame (2019)
Set five years after Thanos made good on his word and turned half of the universe to dust, what’s left of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes carry out their final chance of righting the wrongs carried out by the Mad Titan. Over the course of epic Avengers: Endgame, Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, and the rest of their allies embark on an epic time heist that sees them revisiting the MCU’s greatest moments before a final showdown with Thanos himself.
Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)
Not long after he’s brought back from the dead in Avengers: Endgame, Peter Parker thinks he can take some time off from the superhero business and enjoy a high school trip abroad in hopes of forming a stronger connection with M.J. (Zendaya). But when Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) has different plans for Spider-Man, the vacation turns to anything but in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021)
In December 2021, the Marvel Cinematic Universe pulled off one of the most impressive and jaw-dropping feats in the history of comic book movies with the epic Spider-Man: No Way Home. When Peter Parker and Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) open up the multiverse, they unwittingly release some of the webslinger’s most vicious villains, as well as some spectacular and amazing heroes from alternate realities.
The Spider-Verse Movies Streaming
There have been countless Spider-Man animated series over the years, but longtime fans of the Web-Slinger were treated to an experience like no other with the start of the Spider-Verse animated film franchise in late 2018. Since then, the visual style and storytelling of Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) and his hero’s journey have led to not only some of the best Spider-Man movies, but also instant classics that have revolutionized the world of animated movies.
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse (2018)
Miles Morales is just your normal New York teenager living his best life until his life is turned upside down after being bit by a radioactive spider from an alternate universe. However, turning into the “Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man” is the least of Miles’ worries, as he soon finds out that Kingpin (Liev Schreiber) has used a device that could tear apart the universe. With the help of various Spider-People from different dimensions, Miles finds a way to take on the multiversal threat in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse (2023)
Set 16 months after the events of the first movie, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse sees Miles Morales trying to make sense of his new life, one that could be described as a balancing act of being a good student, son, and superhero. But the scales get all out of whack when Miles discovers a new enemy, the Spot (Jason Schwartzman), a multi-dimensional supervillain who could bring disaster to the multiverse. But the mysterious villain isn’t the only fight that awaits in this movie full of great plot twists.
With so many Spider-Man movies in the works, expect to see this list keep on growing in the near future. But, in the meantime, check out our 2023 movie schedule to see when all the other upcoming Marvel movies will find their way to the big screen.
