With the release of Captain America: Civil War, fans finally got a long-awaited glimpse of Spider-Man as a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s been 14 years since the first Spider-Man movie hit theaters in 2002, and since then there have been 6 films that feature the wall-crawler, and 3 different actors who have put on the iconic costume for the big-screen. While many of the Spider-Man films failed to live up to the expectations of the fans and were considered critical bombs, there are moments scattered throughout these films that are true to the character and demonstrate some of the reasons why he’s remained so beloved to comic book fans after all these years. Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield put their own unique spin on the character, but it's Tom Holland's turn to captivate a new generation of fans while also catering to the expectations of life-long fans. It's no small task, but as they say, with great power comes great responsibility.
With the beginning of a new chapter for Spidey, let’s take a look back at some of the web-slinger’s most memorable moments in some of his previous films. Here are the 12 best Spider-Man movie moments.
12 P.O.V. – The Amazing Spider-Man
11 Green Goblin’s Demise – Spider-Man
10 The Birth of Doc-Ock – Spider-Man 2

A major turning point for the character and the essence of what Spider-Man is all about, this scene sees Spidey unmasked as he uses his full strength to stop a speeding train full of people from falling to their deaths. After saving the civilians, they see his face and realize that Spider-Man is really just a young kid. At his core, Peter Parker is just a kid who does the right thing because he can. This moment encapsulates the truth of the character in such a powerful way that makes it stand out as Spider-Man's brightest big-screen moment so far.
