No doubt, Spidey’s quotes are epic. In celebration of the M-Net Movies Spider-Man pop-up channel, we’ve curated iconic quotes from the Spider-Man movies.

Let’s swing right into it.

“This is my gift, my curse. Who am I? I’m Spider-Man.”

It would be a sin to the spider fan if we didn’t kick things off with this powerful quote. In Spider-Man (2002), Peter realises he's been running away from his destiny. He finally understands his purpose and decides to embrace his gift.

“Every day, I wake up knowing that no matter how many lives I protect, no matter how many people call me a hero, someone even more powerful could change everything.”

This quote from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 gives us a taste of Spider-Man’s internal struggles. Spidey knows he cannot afford to get too comfortable. With so many villains, he constantly has to be on the lookout.

“I just want to go on my trip with my friends.”

Even superheroes need a break, right? This one-liner is from Spider-Man: Far From Home. Peter doesn't want to be on Spider-Man duty while on a trip to Europe with his mates. He aims to relax and be an ordinary kid, but fate has other plans.

“No matter what I do. No matter how hard I try. The ones I love will always be the ones who pay.”

In Spider-Man (2002), the friendly neighbourhood’s pain is visible after failing to save some lives. Even though he gives it his all, guilt consumes him. This quote gives us a taste of Spider-Man’s internal struggles.

"You seriously think I'm a cop in a skintight red and blue suit?"

This quote from The Amazing Spider-Man is proof that Spider-Man has a great sense of humour. While stopping a thief from stealing a car, he is asked if he is a cop and gives us this hilarious quote. We must admit, we didn't see this line coming. 

“With great power comes great responsibility.”

Originating in the comic books and popularised by the 2002 movie, it may have been first spoken by Uncle Ben, but it’s become one of the franchise’s most well-known and beloved quotes.

Spidey’s quotes describe who he is as a superhero. What are some of your favourite Spider-Man quotes?
