Spider-Man (2002)

Who are we? You sure you want to know? This podcast is not for the faint of heart!

In this episode, Morgan takes Tom back to 2002 for arguably the start of the world’s love of big budget superhero movies: Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man starring Tobey Maguire.

We discuss the film’s two-decade long journey to get to the big screen, the various casting decisions and how the film series may be revisited very soon. We also chat about:

  • Tobey Maguire’s attainable physique (if we cut out the KFC)
  • How some actors were surely too good looking to be considered for Peter Parker
  • Our love of Chad Kroeger and Josey Scott’s banger ‘Hero’
  • Stan Lee and other cameos

Clips used:

  • Spider-Man (Sony Pictures)
  • Mamma-Mia auditions (Universal)
  • Spider-Man The New Animated Series (Sony)
  • ABBA – The Name of the Game (Epic/Atlantic)
  • Shaquille O’Neal – Men of Steel (Qwest Records)
  • The Pete Holmes Show

About the Podcast

Two Geeks Two Beers
Nerdy obsessions. Drunken ramblings. A nostalgia podcast about TV, film and video games.
Tom and Morgan are two mates who love talking nonsense about pop culture, while also enjoying a beer. We've taken our drunken ramblings from the pub to the studio to teach each other about all kinds of films, TV shows, video games and more. From '80s cartoons to '90s kids shows, action film franchises to cult games, we'll chat about anything remotely geek-related, often with plenty of confusion, bickering and fond nostalgia.
