M-Net Movies is celebrating SPIDER-MAN’s 60th birthday by airing nine Spider-Man films from Sony Pictures over the period of ten days.

Since making his sidekick debut in August 1962’s Amazing Fantasy #15 anthology comic book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, Peter Parker has developed from a troubled high schooler to a college student.
His motto, “With great power comes tremendous responsibility,” has remained constant as he has utilized his web-shooters and “Spider senses” to save the day for 60 years, transitioning from a married high school teacher to a single freelance photographer.
M-Net Movies presents the nine Spider-Man movies, including eight live-action blockbusters and one animated smash, with the first installment debuting in 2002 and the most current in 2021:
