Hard-Traveling Fanboys Podcast #170: Off the Page — Spider-Man (2002)

Spider-Month continues at the HTF studios as the boys turn their attention to the movie that started it all for the wall crawler, Sam Raimi’s groundbreaking hit Spider-Man! A true pop culture event upon its release, the movie spawned a franchise and has since been the source of many debates in comic circles. How does it hold up? How does it compare to modern superhero films? What classic superhero films does it homage? And for 17 years, Greg has harbored an intense dislike for Willem Dafoe’s performance. Has his mind finally been changed?

Mild-mannered reporters by day, Greg Phillips and Nick Duke share an intense love of comic books that has made them the Hard-Traveling Fanboys. In Off the Page, the boys take a look at comic book media outside the books themselves — games, TV shows, movies and so forth.
