Amazing Spider-Man 2 fans are arguing that their favorite isn’t the worst Spider-Man film. Now, the fans of the other iterations of the character like to take shots at Andrew Garfield’s version of Spidey. But, the fans of that middle set of films are tired of it. People in the replies to Somebody 616’s tweet take aim at Spider-Man: Far From Home specifically. Now, there’s a ton of argument among the fanbase about which entry is truly the weak link in the chain. There are entries from all three series that can be pointed to in different moments. It seems that the Amazing Spider-Man fans have had enough of being on the bottom of the food chain.
Comicbook.com’s Brandon Davis referred to a bunch of theories about a live-action Spider-Man Spider-Verse. That’s one way that fans could get Garfield’s take on the character back on the big screen.
“Sony might actually be building to a live-action Spider-Verse movie where Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland all crossover as their respective Spider-Man’s, similar to what we saw in the animated Spider-Verse movie,” he begins. “They could add any other version of Spider-Man they want while they’re at it and building to this over the course of several movies could be Sony’s Spider-Man equivalent to an Avengers movie, maybe even their Avengers: Endgame-level event.”
Before we all die I just want to say this....
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 isn’t the worst Spider-Man movie. pic.twitter.com/SfH3isJiWZ— Somebody (@Somebdy616) April 29, 2020
“This would mean that Adrian Toomes from this trailer is an alternate Toomes because this is an alternate universe. While he might have some strong similarities, he is a different character,” Davis adds. “For example, Tony Stark might still be alive here -- or not exist at all -- although Sony would not legally be allowed to name him or "Iron Man" without an agreement with Disney.”
He concludes, “Imagine this world where Garfield's Peter Parker encounters Emma Stone's Gwen Stacy from another universe and she is Spider-Gwen. The cuts for fans who watched Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy and Marc Webb's Amazing Spider-Man movies could payoff in dividends -- and by dividends, I mean box office billions.”

YIKES, let's be nice everyone
Not true TASM 2 ruins the point of spider-man being the hero that could be you— legendlifegamingandstopmotion (@legendlifegami1) April 29, 2020
Oh no. Far From Home
Yeah the whole Destiny thing isn’t that great but TASM2 isn’t as fundamentally broken as Far From Home— Somebody (@Somebdy616) April 29, 2020
It is tho— Gabss 😳 (@Paradoxer104) April 29, 2020
I'd argue its watchable, entertaining and okay for the most part.
I own it on blu-ray and do not regret it.— PipBeamis (@PipBeamis) April 29, 2020
This wouldn't make for a very funny scene, as everyone would just be agreeing on it.— Brian Douglas Ahern (@BrizyComics) April 29, 2020
True but there’s still people who TASM2 is the worst for whatever reason— Somebody (@Somebdy616) April 29, 2020
That suit tho
But it’s the best looking tho ngl— The Irrelevant Man (@1rr3l3vance) April 29, 2020
The beef is real
major but unsurprising L— Tony Smoke (@TonyGSmoke) April 29, 2020
That sarcasm is THICK
Lemme guess, Far From Home is a masterpiece of cinema that can’t be topped— Somebody (@Somebdy616) April 29, 2020
The knives are out
Imagine thinking that plot hole riddled film is the best Spidey movie when Spider-Man 2 exists— Somebody (@Somebdy616) April 29, 2020

Clapbacks are vicious
Far From Home— Somebody (@Somebdy616) April 29, 2020
65 plot holes though. Lol
What? Far From Home is even worse. TASM2 could be a great film if Marc Webb was given full control because there’s definitely a good movie hidden in there. Plus TASM2 has 8 plot holes. Not 65.— Somebody (@Somebdy616) April 29, 2020
Spider-Man 3 got mentioned!
Do people forget spiderman 3 exists?— Ben Reilly (@WebBallBen) April 29, 2020
Is it just too much?
I mean, it's not, in my opinion, a bad film. But, compared to the others, including TASM, it's easily seen as the worst. Too many plotlines, too many villains, too many inconsistencies, some characters get underused to the point that you can remove them from the movie,— Key'Shawn Watkins (@KeyWatkins51299) April 29, 2020
