Spider-Man 2 — How To Build The Perfect Protagonist | Film Perfection
Spider-man 2 has many aspects that don't hold up so well by today's filmmaking standards. But still, it is one of the greatest superhero movies ever made. The reason is that the character of Peter Parker and Spider-man in this movie ranks among the best film protagonists in moviemaking history. But why is that?
In today's episode of Film Perfection, let's take a closer look at the character of Peter Parker/Spider-man in Spider-man 2 and the qualities he possesses, in order to determine how to make the perfect movie hero.
Spider-man in general is one of the better superheroes, right up there with Batman. The newest Tom Holland Spider-man is good too. He's good in Avengers, especially with Robert Downey Jr's Tony Stark. I like Tom Holland, and it will be interesting to see what happens with Spider-man: Far From Home, with Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio being there and all. Also interesting to see what happens with Peter Parker and Spider-man in Avengers Endgame. Wonder if Spider-man will appear in a trailer in Avengers Endgame or if he comes back to life at all. Ofc he does.

Stan Lee's all-too-human superhero returns to the screen in this highly anticipated sequel to 2002's blockbuster hit Spider-Man. Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) is attempting to juggle college classes and his job as a photographer with the Daily Bugle while maintaining his secret life as costumed crime-fighter Spider-Man. Parker is also struggling to hold on to his relationship with Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst), who is beginning to enjoy success as a model and actress, and both Mary Jane and Peter have noticed he's beginning to buckle under the strain. Parker's friendship with Harry Osborn (James Franco) is also beginning to fray due to Peter's seeming alliance with Spider-Man, whom Harry blames for the death of his father, the nefarious Norman Osborn. As Parker weighs his responsibilities to himself and those around him against the obligations that come with his special powers, Spider-Man is faced with a new nemesis -- Dr. Otto Octavius (Alfred Molina), a deranged scientist whose latest project has turned him into the near-invincible cyborg Doctor Octopus. Spider-Man 2 was directed by Sam Raimi, who helmed the first film, and much of the original cast has also reunited for this sequel, including Rosemary Harris, J.K. Simmons, and Bruce Campbell.
Your friendly neighborhood web-slinger is back, only this time his sunny outlook has become partially overcast in the third chapter of director Sam Raimi's Spider-Man saga. Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, and James Franco return to reprise their roles from the previous two installments, with Thomas Haden Church, Topher Grace, and Bryce Dallas Howard making their first appearances in the series as Flint Marko (aka Sandman), Eddie Brock (aka Venom), and Gwen Stacy, respectively. Peter Parker (Maguire) has finally leaned to walk the middle ground between being the superhero that his city needs and the man that Mary Jane (Dunst) loves. All is well in New York City until one night, as Peter and M.J. sit gazing at the stars, a falling comet streams across the sky and crashes into the ground close by. But this isn't any ordinary shooting star, and upon impact the mysterious space rock is split open to reveal a shape-shifting symbiote with the power to overtake anything that it comes into contact with. Later, as Harry Osborn (James Franco) acquires his late father's flying board, engineers a powerful new Goblin outfit, and takes to the sky to avenge dad's death, the mysterious space sludge infects both Peter's Spider-Man suit and ambitious street photographer Eddie Brock (Grace). Peter's strange new suit gives him a newfound sense of power as it gradually overpowers his personality, and he discovers that escaped convict Flint Marko was in fact the man responsible for the death of Uncle Ben (Cliff Robertson). Unfortunately for Peter, Marko has recently acquired the power to morph at will and quickly completes his transformation into the dreaded Sandman. As the Sandman gives in to his darkest criminal instincts and the slithering space symbiote transforms Eddie Brock into the nightmarish fanged villain known as Venom, the citizens of New York City must once again call on Spider-Man to fend off destructive forces that are far too powerful for the likes of mortal man.
Spider-Man (Tom Holland) learns the ropes of being a superhero under the tutelage of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), all while juggling his responsibilities as high schooler Peter Parker. Eager to prove to Stark that he's ready to join the Avengers, Parker soon gets tangled up with a sinister new villain known as the Vulture (Michael Keaton). Zendaya, Donald Glover, and Marisa Tomei co-star. Directed by Jon Watts (Cop Car). pizza time. ytp.
