It shows the story of Peter Parker going on a vacation to relieve his stress after a big fight in Avengers: Endgame and lost his big mentor, Tony Stark. Spider-Man so far has been produced in seven movies since 2002 and played by three different actors.
But, do you ever think about which of these movies presenting the best fight scene? Considering the intensity and the meaning of the fight, Wowkia provides the following list of Top 10 Spider-Man Fight Scenes.
10. Spider-Man vs The Lizard (The Amazing Spider-Man 2012)
The Lizard is the transform of Dr. Curt Connors after he tested on himself a substance of certain reptiles to regrow his right arm. Dr. Connors actually has been shown in Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 3. But only under this reboot, the character is made as the main villain for Peter.
Unfortunately, The Amazing Spider-Man did not receive a big success like its previous three. However, the fights between Spider-Man and The Lizard could be a strong part of the movie, even though they usually end with flaws. The fight in Peter’s school could be unique but the disappearance of The Lizard is too sudden. The same for its final fight where the loss of the villain and his reform to human could be done better.
9. Spider-Man vs Venom (Spider-Man 3 2007)
Venom is an alien symbiote who can receive the power of its host. When being shown on the screen, Venom first hosts Peter resulting him to mimic the ability to produce webs. After being dispatched by Peter, it moves to Eddie Brock, a reporter who has a grudge toward Spider-Man.

However, this fight put Peter’s love Mary Jane in danger and even killed his best friend, Harry Osborn. Venom itself was finally destroyed with Harry’s bomb after trapped by only a circle cage.
8. Spider-Man vs Vulture (Spider-Man Home Coming 2017)
Vulture is a character with a bird look which is decided to be the first villain in the MCU version of Spider-Man.

Meanwhile, the second one occurs on a plane after Spider-Man attaches himself on Vulture who tries to hijack the plane carrying out Avengers’ weapons.

The first fight scene ends with a single hit from his own glider before again blown with his own bomb. The second scene, on the other hand, ends when he falls from the air after hitting Spider-Man’s web.

Nevertheless, this fight gives a big impact on Peter because the Goblin is his best friend’s father.
5. Spider-Man vs Harry The Goblin (The Amazing Spider-Man 2 2014)
The Green Goblin seems to be the villain mostly shown in Spider-Man movies. In the reboot of the original movies, Harry Osborn, turns to the Green Goblin after taking the serum to prevent him from a genetic disease. Harry previously assumed that it can be cured by Peter’s blood. But Peter’s reluctance to give his blood made him put anger towards the Spidey.
The fight then starts just after Spider-Man defeated Electro. The Goblin takes Gwen and then releases her from a high above a clock tower. Spider-Man then is in a struggle both to fight the Goblin and save Gwen at the same time. But sadly, even succeed to beat the Goblin, he failed to save his love. This fight is also an important one due to the impact on Peter’s life.

He experienced that after running from the police for robbing a bank. Farko is linked to Peter for the accident that killed his uncle, Ben Parker, in the first movie.
There are three fight scenes between Spider-Man and the Sandman shown in the movie. The first one is when he hijacked a van carrying bank’s money. After a small fight with Spider-Man, he flees. The second one takes place in a subway just after Peter, who is under Venom’s influence, find out that Farko is the killer of his uncle. The black Spider-Man almost kills the Sandman after drowning him.
The last fight is quite intense where the Sandman, reversely, almost kills Spider-Man (even with the help of Venom). Harry comes to save Peter and both of them succeed to take down the big Sandman. Just after Spider-Man gets rid of Venom, Farko explained to Peter about what exactly happened in his uncle’s death.
2. Spider-Man vs Mysterio (Spider-Man: Far From Home 2019)
Mysterio actually does not possess superhuman power but he is the master of illusion. It is the alias for Quentin Beck, who, in this recently played movie, is a former holographic-illusions specialist at Stark Industries.

After breaking the illusion, Spider-Man fights directly Mysterio and having Mysterio killed with his own drone. Under the MCU, these all special effects are best shown on the screen.
1. Spider-Man vs Doctor Octopus (Spider-Man 2 2004)
Considering its intensity and meaning, the fight between Spider-Man and Doctor Octopus is the most appropriate for being number one. Otto Octavius, a scientist working at Oscorp, becomes this villain after the fusion project becomes uncontrolled. He is then always under the control of the A.I. four arms and Spider-Man tries to stop him.
After witnessing and the same time failed to stop the change of the Doctor, Spider-Man confronts him again when the Doc Ock robs a bank. Aunt May who is with Peter at that time becomes Doc Ock’s hostage. He manages to save his aunt, but the Doc escapes. Doc Ock after that takes MJ as a hostage to lure Peter out. They then have a fight on a moving train leaving a breath-taking view where Spider-Man has to save the passengers on the train.
While MJ is still in Doc Ock’s hand, he starts another experiment that can destroy half of the city. Spider-Man then arrives and has the final battle that ends by making the Doc back to his sense. The Doc, unfortunately, dies after taking care of his mess.
