With a great superhero character comes a great responsibility — to sling everyone's favourite friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man onto screens as often as possible, it seems. That's been the case for two decades now, ever since Tobey Maguire first donned the red-and-blue suit.

Indeed, from 2002 onwards, nine different dedicated Spider-Man flicks have graced cinemas. Maguire did the honours three times, including in 2004 and 2007. Andrew Garfield became Peter Parker in 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man and 2014's The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Rise of Electro, too. And, of course, Tom Holland is the current iteration, with three standalone movies — Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far From Home and Spider-Man: No Way Home on his resume.

Oh, and there's also the best Spider-Man film of the lot of them: the animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

That's a whole clutter of Spideys, and we're reminding you of this because all of those nine features are coming to the Astor Theatre for one huge web-slinging day and night. Get ready to stick yourself to the cinema's seats to watch your way through every single one in a big 16.5-hour sitting that the venue is aptly calling Spider-Thon.

From 1pm on Saturday, June 16, your spider sense will be tingling. You'll then spend hours upon hours seeing three actors and a heap of pixels do everything a spider can.

Spider-Thon is only focusing on dedicated Spidey flicks, so there's no Marvel Cinematic Universe movies on the bill where he pops up but isn't in the title — otherwise you'd be watching Spider-Man movies for weeks.
