With Marc Webb’s upcoming reboot of the Spider-Man movie franchise only a day away, HitFix recently posted this cool and very insightful video about everybody’s favorite web-crawler. From its comic book origins to Sam Raimi’s box office success in the beginning of the 21st century.

The video runs for almost a good 10 minutes so you can bet you’ll get your fair share of all the juicy information regarding the characters and their actors. One YouTube commenter did raise a very good question though: why did it leave out Gwen Stacy’s father George Stacy, played by Denis Leary? Is it probably because the character didn’t have that much significant role in the comic anyways? Your guess is as good as mine.

Let your spider senses tingle as you watch the said video below.
