We all know about the Marvel Cinematic Universe that was kicked off in 2008 with Iron Man. But what about the Marvel films and TV movies that came before the MCU and that aren’t technically a part of it?
In this podcast, we take a look, sometimes with excitement, sometimes with dread, at the films and TV movies that are part of what we have dubbed the “MCO” or “Marvel Cinematic Origins”.
We cover the Spidey films before he became a part of the MCU, including the made-for-TV movie released in 1977. Join us as we discuss all four versions of Peter Parker, two Harry Osborns, three Aunt Mays and two Uncle Bens dying but not before finding ways of reiterating the phrase, “With great power, comes great responsibility”. Films covered: Spider-Man (1977) Spider-Man (2002), Spider-Man 2 (2004), Spider-Man 3 (2007), The Amazing Spider-Man (2012), The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)
