It's hard to believe Sony's Spider-Man turns 15 today.

On May 3, 2002, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man (Tobey Maguire) swung into theaters, introducing non-comic book fans to Harry Osborn (James Franco), Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst) and a host of villainous characters. The first film in the three-part series went on to earn $821.7 million at the global box office and paved the way for many more Marvel blockbusters.

Marvel Comics has licensed its content to different movie studios—including 20th Century Fox (X-Men), Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures (The Avengers) and Sony Pictures (Spider-Man)—meaning hundreds of movie stars have brought the characters from the page to the big screen.
