All 8 Live-Action SPIDER-MAN Films Return to Movie Theaters this Summer for Spider-Mondays

Over the past 22 years, we’ve had 3 different iterations of Spider-Man swing their way onto the big screen. Now, as part of Columbia Pictures’ 100th Anniversary celebration, the eight live-action Spider-Man films are returning to movie theaters. Each film is for a one-night-only event. Beginning on April 15, these Spider-Mondays will run through June 3. It all starts with Sam Raimi’s original Spider-Man from 2002, the film that really started the ball rolling on Marvel movie dominance. You can watch the trailer for this summer’s Spider-Mondays right here.

Until the release of Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: No Way Home in 2021, it really felt like each iteration of Peter Parker was its own thing. Tobey Maguire’s take on Spidey in Raimi’s trilogy was quite different from Andrew Garfield’s in Marc Webb’s two films. The same goes for Tom Holland’s Peter Parker, who was similar to his predecessors, but just as different too. But after No Way Home, each movie feels more like part of an interconnected story, one about three “brothers” on similar life journeys that somehow all come together for an emotional first encounter. Maybe one of the best unintentional cinematic retcons of all time, the existing 8 Spider-Man movies now work that way. And so, it will be fun to see these Spider-Man movies return to theaters as a unit.

Unfortunately, the animated Spider-Verse movies aren’t a part of these Spider-Mondays. So Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse or Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse won’t return to movie theaters this summer. Hopefully, when the third Spider-Verse installment finally arrives, Sony will think of releasing the first two films back in theaters again. In the meantime, you can catch Spider-Man in movie theaters on April 15, Spider-Man 2 on April 22, Spider-Man 3 on April 29, The Amazing Spider-Man on May 3, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on May 13, Spider-Man: Homecoming on May 20, Spider-Man: Far From Home on May 27, and Spider-Man: No Way Home on June 3.
