In the tradition of ScreenCrush series like You Think You Know Movies and You Think You Know TV comes a new YouTube series: Top Five! Each week (or so; we’ve got a lot of other stuff going on), ScreenCrush editor and critic Matt Singer will count down a particular topic from the world of movies (and probably write these introductory posts in the third person).

Also in the tradition of our previous Top Five episode about Batman Movies That Were Never Made, this week’s all about Spider-Man movies that didn’t make it to the screen. In the new Captain America: Civil War, Tom Holland makes his debut as an all-new Spidey, following in the footsteps of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. Holland is the third movie Spider-Man, but he could have been the fourth or fifth or eighth if some of the previous Wall-Crawler movies that were planned had actually panned out. In this video, we discuss some of the most intriguing Spider-Man projects that fell apart before they could arrive in theaters.

Top Five is a ScreenCrush original series that ranks all kinds of cool stuff from the world of movies. This is our 17th episode, so check out some of our past episodes below. Plus, we want your feedback, so be sure to let us know what Top Fives you want to see in future episodes! And don’t forget to subscribe to the ScreenCrush YouTube channel below to catch all our future episodes. Until next time, face front True Believers! (And don’t let someone who thinks Spider-Man is a giant tarantula make a Spider-Man movie.)
