8 reasons why a Spider-Man TV series would have legs

You don't need Spider-Sense to know that there's a reboot swinging into cinemas next year courtesy of (500) Days Of Summer (2009) director Marc Webb and Zodiac (2007) scribe James Vanderbilt, but given the strength of Sam Raimi's trilogy, the last of which was released a mere four years ago in 2007, perhaps it's time for Peter Parker to take a leaf out of Clark Kent's book and head instead for the small screen.

It wouldn't be the first time the web-head has crawled into our living rooms on a weekly basis. He first appeared on September 9th 1967 in animated form for a three-year, 52-episode run that was reasonably faithful to the mythology, and which introduced the world to the now famous Spider-Man theme tune, later covered by none other than The Ramones on their 1995 album 'Adios Amigos'!
