Spider-Man: Everyone’s Home

With the help of AI image generation tech, Corridor created this short fan film in the style of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The crossover imagines that The Avengers (and a whole lot of Spider-Men variants) found their way into the Spider-Verse as a result of the events of Doctor Strange’s actions. Go behind the scenes here.

Reanimating Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

The animation in Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse was both groundbreaking and breathtaking. Pinot W. Ichwandardi and his family worked together to painstakingly recreate sequences from the film using traditional animation and through-the-lens compositing techniques. The result is both impressive and charming.

The Brilliance of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

The Brilliance of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

If you can believe it, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was the first theatrically-released animated movie to feature one of the Avengers. It was a huge gamble to create it like a live-action comic book, but that creative decision paid off. Danny Boyd from CinemaStix offers his take on why it worked so brilliantly.

Iron Studios 1960s Pointing Spider-Man

This 1/10th-scale statue was inspired by the Spider-Man Pointing at Spider-Man meme. The 8.2″ tall scene features Spidey in his cartoon red and blue costume pointing his figure at whatever you want, along with a miniature shipping crate. You’ll need to buy two or more to replicate the meme, so that could get expensive.

Spider-Man Meets Spider-Gwen

Spider-Man Meets Spider-Gwen

This short fan film by Alessandro Costanzo envisions what might have happened after the end of Spider-Man No Way Home, and that Andrew Garfield’s Peter 3 met up with Emma Stone’s Spider-Gwen. They pulled off the trickery using deepfake tech, applying the original actors’ faces onto new actors and dubbing new voices. (Thanks, Rob!)

Climbing Walls and Ceilings Like Spider-Man

Climbing Walls and Ceilings Like Spider-Man

The video culminates with him using them to climb a 14-story building.

Green Goblin Kid Cosplay

Green Goblin Kid Cosplay

To celebrate the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Logan Winter Dominic’s dad built him the ultimate Green Goblin costume. The creepy helmet and body armor are spot-on, but it’s the hoverboard modded to look like the Goblin Glider that takes it to the next level.

If Spider-Man Was Rated R

If Spider-Man Was Rated R

(Gore) Thanks to the events of Loki, we now have the MCU multiverse, and Peter Parker is only gonna make things worse in Spider-Man: No Way Home. The VFX crew from Corridor imagine how Mobius M. Mobius might clean up the mess by pruning unwanted Spidey variants in the most gruesome ways possible.

Spider-Man: No Way Home (Trailer)

The latest trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home reveals a bit too much plot for our taste, but also gives us glimpses of several familiar villains from Peter’s multiverse. In addition to Doc Ock, expect appearances from Green Goblin, Sandman, Electro, and more. The jury’s still out if we’ll get Toby Maguire or Andrew Garfield, though.

Building an Iron Spider-Man Suit

Building an Iron Spider-Man Suit

Inspired by the nanotech “Iron Spider” suit seen in Spider-Man: No Way Home, JLaservideo wanted to see if he could replicate Spidey’s instantly-appearing, eight-legged outfit. J’s suit hides its appearance beneath a thermochromic pigment, and has inflatable tentacles that unfurl like those party horns.

When he’s not climbing buildings or battling Spider-Man with them, what does Doc Ock do with those extra tentacles? Well, when he’s in Germany, he dresses up in lederhosen and enjoys a couple of steins of cold beer. Prost!

Doc Ock Claw Machine

Doc Ock Claw Machine

Sculptor Steven Richter set himself the challenge of creating a mechanical claw machine based on Doc Ock’s tentacles from Spider-Man 2 and No Way Home. The build features cast resin parts and a cable-driven mechanism that lets an operator move the claw and grip objects with it. Plush Spidey doesn’t stand a chance.

Spider-Man: No Way Home as a 90s Cartoon

100Bombs Studios dusted off footage from the 1990s Spider-Man animated series and edited it to match the audio from the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer. Using scenes between Spidey, Doctor Strange, and Doc Ock, it syncs up surprisingly well.

Swinging from Spider-Man Web-Shooters

Swinging from Spider-Man Web-Shooters

Over the past two years, engineer JT of Built IRL has been trying to figure out how to swing like Spider-Man. He eventually arrived at a compact web-shooter that uses compressed propane to fire cables, then realized he needed to wear several of them if he wanted to swing more than once. We love how he did his thesis on this.

Copper Nozzle Carnage Ring

Copper Nozzle Carnage Ring

As we’ve seen before, Ross The Random has a knack for turning bits of hardware into small works of art. In this video, he shows us how he took an old copper nozzle from a MIG welder and transformed it into a badass ring based on the visage of Spider-Man’s terrifying nemesis Carnage.

Testing Spider-Man’s Web IRL

Testing Spider-Man’s Web IRL

After proving it’s feasible to create web-like fibers from liquid, Built IRL uses an off-the-shelf woven fiber to test the ability for it to work like Spider-Man’s webs. The main engineering feat is the multi grappling hook design he came up with. He first uses the web to take down a bad guy, then swings from it after tossing it over a bar.

In the world of Spider-Man, Dr. Otto Octavius (better known as Doc Ock) has been augmented with a set of mechanical tentacles he uses for nefarious purposes.

Imagine for a moment that Tobey Maguire played Anakin Skywalker in Revenge of the Sith. That’s exactly what we have here, courtesy of the warped minds at Matan Animation Studios. Can’t get enough Darth Bully Maguire? He also stood in for Darth Maul in Duel of the Fates.

Hot Glue Web Shooter

Hot Glue Web Shooter

The stuff in Spider-Man’s web-shooters is strong enough to hold his body weight as he swings from building to building. While we wouldn’t trust hot glue to do the same, we still wouldn’t want to be a criminal on the business end of Joel Creates‘ web-slinger, which can even be worn while pulling off Spidey’s acrobatics.
