Default Re: Rank every comic book film - where do the Spider-Man films fit in?

Nolan happened because Batman hit rock bottom and WB allowed him to excercise his talents as a result. The terrible SM3 was the biggest Spidey film to date financially, far from rock bottom. Never had Superman lows either which is why we have Nolan godfathering MoS.

Will Webb have the control over this that Nolan had? I doubt it myself.
The first two Spider-Man films were some of the greatest CBMs of their time. They aged, sure, but I still think they should be recognized for that. The Avengers will probably age greatly in 10 years (trust me, it will, like every other film that is not a classic) and I'm sure people will call it cheesy and such.

And honestly, how do you know Sony will never allow for a great Spider-Man film?
