RECAST: Sam Raimi's Spider-Man Trilogy

RECAST: Sam Raimi's Spider-Man Trilogy

Axelbratoski recasts Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy!

"What is Sam Raimi's Spider-Man Trilogy?"

Spider-Man was featured in a trilogy of live-action films directed by Sam Raimi and starring Tobey Maguire as the title superhero. The first Spider-Man film of the trilogy was released on May 3, 2002; its sequel, Spider-Man 2, was released on June 30, 2004 and the next sequel, Spider-Man 3, was released on May 4, 2007..

Well, I must say that all in all, I really liked this franchise, especially Spider-Man 2. However, I didn't like Spider-Man 3 and Maguire wasn't the best choice for Spidey. I saw other recasts of this trilogy by users Ager and Robert Garlen and I decided to do one myself. I'd like to change a few things, for example: Mary Jane would be a model, Eddie Brock would be older and tougher, Peter, Harry, Mary Jane and the rest would be in college and Peter wouldn't be a pathetic douche when he is under the symbiote's influence.

Elijah Wood as Peter Parker/Spider-Man

(22 years in 2002) If you have seen the LotR trilogy, you should know that Elijah can play a young, kind, brave and energetic hero but he also can do funny, smart mouth characters. He looks alot like Peter Parker and, as he is a versatile and skilled actor, I'm sure he is an ideal choice. My only complaint would be his height but besides that he is the perfect pic.

Peter Parker/Spider-Man
·Height: 5'10"
·Eyes: Hazel
·Hair: Brown

Elijah Wood
·Height: 5' 6"
·Eyes: Blue
·Hair: Brown





Anne Hathaway as Mary Jane Watson

(20 years in 2002) This terrific actress may be Catwoman but in 2002 she was the perfect Mary Jane. She fits ideally the sweet girl-next-door type and she is pretty enough to be a model.

Mary Jane Watson
·Height: 5'8"
·Eyes: Green
·Hair: Red

Anne Hathaway
·Height: 5'8"
·Eyes: Brown
·Hair: Brown





Ed Harris as Norman Osborn/Green Goblin

(52 years in 2002) Harris is just a spectacular actor and I can't believe nobody casted him as Osborn before. He can play a serious businessman and then easily turn into a nutjob if asked. Plus, he is American, as opposed to fan-favorites Ralph Fiennes and Jason Isaacs. I'm really proud of this choice.

Norman Osborn/Green Goblin
·Height: 5'11"
·Eyes: Blue
·Hair: Reddish-Brown

Ed Harris
·Height: 5'9"
·Eyes: Blue
·Hair: Grey (formerly blonde)





Ryan Gosling as Harry Osborn

(22 years in 2002) Gosling started his career as a child and grew up to be a skilled, intense actor. He would be great playing this troubled young man. Althought I really like Franco, and I know most of you won't agree with me, I think Gosling is a better actor, and he fits Harry better too. You could also sell he is Ed Harris' son.

Harry Osborn
·Height: 5'10"
·Eyes: Blue
·Hair: Reddish-Brown

Ryan Gosling
·Height: 6'1"
·Eyes: Blue
·Hair: Blonde





Bruce Boxleitner as Uncle Ben

(52 years in 2002) I decided to go younger with Ben and May, as they are Peter's uncle and aunt, not his grandparents. So, this pick isn't very original but Boxleitner fits Uncle Ben like a glove. He hasn't been in many big stuff in the last 15 years but you may have seen him as Alan Bradley in Tron and Tron: Legacy.

Uncle Ben Parker
·Height: 5'9"
·Eyes: Blue
·Hair: White

Bruce Boxleitner
·Height: 6'2"
·Eyes: Hazel
·Hair: White (formerly brown)





Sissy Spacek as Aunt May

(53 years in 2002) Spacek is a very talented actress, who would portray Aunt May as a motherly character but not as fragile as Rosemary Harris did. She would also be great as Boxleitner's wife.

Aunt May Parker
·Height: 5'5"
·Eyes: Blue
·Hair: White (formerly blonde)

Sissy Spacek
·Height: 5'2"
·Eyes: Green
·Hair: Blonde





Dennis Farina as J. Jonah Jameson

(58 years in 2002) Dennis Farina would be perfect as the short-tempered but not so over-the-top Jameson. I loved JK Simmons' performance but I think that a less cartoony (but still funny and grumpy) version would be better and Farina is fantastic playing characters like that.

Aunt May Parker
·Height: 5'11"
·Eyes: Blue
·Hair: Black

Dennis Farina
·Height: 6'1"
·Eyes: Brown
·Hair: White (formerly black)

David Morse as Otto Octavius/Doctor Octopus

(51 years in 2004) Morse is an intense actor who is just wonderful playing villains. I have been wanting to cast him in some role since a long time ago and now I found the perfect role for him. This is another choice I really like.

Doctor Octopus
·Height: 5'9"
·Eyes: Brown
·Hair: Brown

David Morse
·Height: 6'4"
·Eyes: Blue
·Hair: White (formerly blonde)





David Thewlis as Dr. Curt Connors

(46 years in 2004) Thewlis is just a good actor I really liked as Remus Lupin in the Harry Potter saga. He is spot-on for this small but important character. Just like that.

Dr. Curt Connors
·Height: 5'11"
·Eyes: Blue
·Hair: Brown

David Thewlis
·Height: 6'3"
·Eyes: Blue
·Hair: Brown





Spider-Man 3
Directed by Chris Columbus
Music by Michael Giaccinno



Alice Eve as Gwen Stacy

(25 years in 2007) Eve is a talented actress who is just spot-on for the sweet Gwen Stacy. Blonde? Check. Beautiful? Check. Can play sweet characters? Check. Looks like the character? Check. She is just the ideal choice!

Gwen Stacy
·Height: 5'7"
·Eyes: Blue
·Hair: Blonde

Alice Eve
·Height: 5'5"
·Eyes: Left one blue and right one green (heterochromia)
·Hair: Blonde





Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Flint Marko/Sandman

(41 years in 2007) Jeffrey Dean Morgan is very versatile so it wouldn't be hard for him to play Sandman. He can play a brutish villain but also a caring father easily so I have faith that he would have been awesome!

Flint Marko/Sandman
·Height: 6'1"
·Eyes: Brown
·Hair: Brown

Jeffrey Dean Morgan
·Height: 6'2"
·Eyes: Brown
·Hair: Brown





Norman Reedus as Eddie Brock/Venom

(38 years in 2007) This is the choice I like the most. After seeing his terrific performance in The Walking Dead, I became a fan of his work immediately. His turn as Eddie Brock would have been darker and more similar to the comics, even if he doesn't look alot like it. I've seen him casted as Carnage but I know he would have been a hell of a Venom.

Eddie Brock/Venom
·Height: 6'3"
·Eyes: Blue
·Hair: Reddish blonde

Norman Reedus
·Height: 5'10"
·Eyes: Blue
·Hair: Brown





Kurt Russell as Captain George Stacy

(56 years in 2007) Some years ago I used to dislike Kurt but after watching the awesome Escape from New York he started to grow on me. Even if this role isn't really big I think he would have made it memorable.

Captain George Stacy
·Height: 6'3"
·Eyes: Blue
·Hair: Reddish blonde

Kurt Russell
·Height: 5'10"
·Eyes: Blue
·Hair: Brown
