The Moviemaking Magic of Marvel Studios: Spider-Man

From his first appearance in Captain America: Civil War to the latest installment, Spider-Man: No Way Home, explore the behind-the-scenes magic of how Marvel Studios brought your friendly neighborhood Super Hero to life for the big screen. Pull back the curtains to reveal it all—from Spidey’s homemade web-shooters to Mysterio’s modified drones and all of the adrenaline-pumping battles in between.

Speaking of his homemade web-shooters, actor Tom Holland says, "The old-school web shooters are so cool. They're really big and chunky, they're really mechanical, and if you press the button, everything moves.... What I love about his original web shooters is they're as real as they could be. I know that's like impossible to make a thing that shoots web out of your hand, but the one thing with [the web shooters in] Andrew [Garfield]'s movie is that they were so small and so compact, it didn't really make much sense to me. But this is a big clunky thing that a kid would make in his room."

This collectible book, The Moviemaking Magic of Marvel Studios: Spider-Man, written by Eleni Russos features diagrams, photographs, concept sketches, and more. Bonus sections reveal the magic of some of the films’ most memorable moments, characters, heroes, and villains using special interactive elements. See how filmmakers breathed new life into the humble comic book character and transformed him into the larger-than-life icon and phenomenon fans across the globe adore.
