Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man movies are loved by fans but they’re not perfect, and Miles Morales makes fun of one now-infamous classic scene.
Warning: contains spoilers for Miles Morales: Spider-Man #30!
The Sam Raimi Spider-Man films are beloved by Marvel fans, but they occasionally show their age, and Miles Morales points out one particular incident in a recent issue of Miles Morales: Spider-Man. Beginning in 2002, the trilogy was the first iteration of Spider-Man’s adventures on the silver screen and is still fondly remembered, even after two reboots by Sony Pictures (2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man series starring Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland’s Spider-Man series taking place within the Marvel Cinematic Universe). But in Miles Morales: Spider-Man #30, written by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, Kemp Powers and Jeff Loveness with art by Sara Pichelli and colors by Rachelle Rosenberg, the creative team can’t resist poking fun at a certain infamous scene involving Spider-Man and the Green Goblin.
Miles Morales has recently ended his own Clone Saga, and after the stress of fighting three evil doppelgängers, he more than deserves a break. Thus, Spider-Man appears on Sunday Night Live (a lawyer-friendly version of Saturday Night Live), fights the real Vulture during a sketch, and throws out the first pitch at the Brooklyn game. He even tangles with the villain Frog-Man – but not without the residents of New York City chiming in.
