Superhero Movies to Watch on Netflix Streaming #2: Spider-Man
Ten years before The Avengers assembled in theaters, Spider-Man set box-office records with a $115 million haul its opening weekend. The movie went on to hold the record for biggest opening weekend for four years, and now it’s one of the best superhero movies on Netflix streaming.
Spider-Man also earned instant acclaim, becoming one of the most talked-about movies of the year. Like most of the successful superhero movies that followed, this film knows that superpowers aren’t the most interesting part of the hero — the weaknesses and the struggle are what draw in audiences (The Avengers highlighted that truth beautifully).
Spider-Man succeeds because it balances the powers with the person, and it remains one of the must-see superhero movies on Netflix streaming.
