Spider-Man was a theme tie-in between LEGO and Columbia Pictures, featuring characters from the first two Spider-Man movies.


In 2002, Spider-Man at first was a sub-theme of Studios, and concentrated on creating a Spider-Man movie with LEGO, instead of the actual story as seen in the released films.

Later, in 2003, the sets were no longer part of the Studios theme and focused on recreating the movie events from the first film with LEGO, like the majority of movie based LEGO sets.

In 2004, the Spider-Man 2 subtheme was released, and then the theme was discontinued. Spider-Man (4 Plus), a 4+ Spider-Man theme, was also released during the same year to cater to the younger audience.

In 2012, the Spider-Man theme returned as part of the Marvel subtheme of Marvel Super Heroes. Unlike the 2002-2004 movie-based Spider-Man series, the Super Heroes Spider-Man sets are based off of the TV series Ultimate Spider-Man. Currently the new sets bare no resemblance to the previous theme and so far only Spider-Man, Doctor Octopus, and J. Jonah Jameson,Green Goblin and Mary Jane Watson have been redesigned for the new theme.
