Yesterday the comic book world lost an icon with the passing of Stan Lee. As you know, Lee was the co-creator of Spider-Man, one of the biggest superheroes of all time. For fun, I decided to take a look to see what the most valuable Spider-Man comic books are.
If you’ve ever wanted to sling some webs like your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, you’re in luck: Disney’s new Marvel Superhero Land, set to debut at Disney California Adventure in 2020, will include a Spider-Man attraction that equips visitors with a web-shooter of their very own. Just maybe leave the skyscraper-hopping to the pros, OK?
Marvel loves to sneak Easter eggs of all sizes into their films for comic fans to parse through — it cam be something as big as Nick Fury’s post-credits appearance in the first Iron Man or something as small as a billboard in Thor advertising a “journey into mystery.” Spider-Man: Homecoming snuck a few references of its own in, one of which has caused some major speculation among fans about certain ancient religions.
“My Spider Sense is tingling” is the most classic of Spider-Man catchphrases — but you won’t hear it in the new Spider-Man: Homecoming. The newest version of our friendly neighborhood web-slinger is different than his filmic predecessors in many ways, a big one being his lack of the traditional Spidey Sense, which alerts him to the presence of dangers he can’t immediately see. Homecoming director Jon Watts explained that the decision to leave his sixth sense out of the movie was very much on purpose.
