Spider-Man 2 is Sam Raimi’s penultimate film in the Tobey Maguire film series. This time Peter Parker is out on his own, down on his luck but still Spider-Man. He faces his best villain in the series Otto Octavius, a man just as smart as Peter and more dangerous. I’m sure you’ve seen the movie so you know who Doc Ock is and you know who Spider-Man is. I think we can all agree Spider-Man 2 is the best Spider-Man movie so far. But I think Spider-Man 2 is the best comic book movie. Yeah The Dark Knight is phenomenal, Logan is a beautiful film and Captain America: Civil War is just great but none of them feel like a comic book. Spider-Man 2 feels like a comic book. I’m gonna run you down a list of reasons why.
Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, young Peter Parker returns home to live with his Aunt May. Under the watchful eye of mentor Tony Stark, Parker starts to embrace his newfound identity as Spider-Man. He also tries to return to his normal daily routine — distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just a friendly neighborhood superhero. Peter must soon put his powers to the test when the evil Vulture emerges to threaten everything that he holds dear. – Sony Pictures Releasing

So instead of writing a movie review, here is a list of my most anticipated movies coming out this summer. The films will be listed in order of release.
