The adventures of freelance photographer Peter Parker, who, after being bitten by a radioactive spider, discovered he had gained superpowers, such as super-strength and agility and the ability to climb sheer walls and ceilings. After inventing a super-sticky web serum, he donned a red-and-black costume, and began fighting crime as the superhero Spider-Man. During the day, Parker worked for the Daily Bugle and skinflint editor J. Jonah Jameson. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@wkio.com>

Trivia

In this series, it is actually J. Jonah Jameson and Robbie Robertson who coin the name "Spider-Man" and give Peter the idea for the costume. Where Peter gets the costume and material to build the web-shooters is never fully explained. See more »

Goofs

Spider-Man faces forward to shoot webbing onto three staff-wielding warriors lying on the floor close together. Seconds before that, the warriors had been knocked down by Spider-Man apart from each other, with only one lying completely in front of him. See more »

Quotes

Captain Barbera: Where's the money, Monahan? Where's the 5.000 big ones?
Monahan: There must have been somebody else in the car.
Captain Barbera: Wrong, Monahan. Wrong. He was a lone wolf. But a crazy lone wolf. Look at 'em. Driving right into a brick wall. Can you explain all this to me, please?

GREAT PILOT MOVIE FOR THE TV SERIES
22 March 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Superhero films are a mixed bag in my opinion. Most of the time we are treated to great superhero films such as Superman (1978), Batman (1989) and the X-Men (2000). Other times superhero films are not very good as was the case with the 1990 Captain America movie and Judge Dredd.

I'm please to say that the pilot for the Spider-Man TV series was really good. There is a great plot, a great villain and the superb Nicholas Hammond as Spider-Man. The late great David White (remember him as Larry Tate from Bewitched?) also made an excellent Jonah Jameson.

Most of you will be familiar with Spider-Man's origin. It differs a little bit here but it's still very convincing.

Just like the great Incredible Hulk TV movie from the late 70's Spider-Man did not disappoint and it set the ball rolling for the TV series that followed.

I hope the 2002 Spider-Man film is as good as this. No doubt that the special effects will be superior but let's hope it has a good plot too.
