Description Edit

A request by Saif Rehman.

Based on a failed project by James Cameron to adapt Spider-Man to the big screen in the 90's.

This was probably one of the more frustrating trailers for me to research. Usually when I make a failed film trailer there's a suitable list of actors and events for me to draw upon and guess the rest of the film. For James Cameron's Spider-Man there were three different proposed scripts each with a different line up of characters and an incomplete list of possible actors.

I did a lot of guess work to create the cast, borrowing characters from a number of treatments and rumors I found online. Some of which might have even been genuine. Leonardo DiCaprio as Spider-Man was an early rumour and part of the request.

James Cameron cast the sitcom actress Nikki Cox as Mary Jane, a choice I really tried to honour. Unfortunately almost nothing the actress has done has ever been released on DVD or even VCR. So instead I went with Robin Lively as Mary Jane.

I confess to casting Lance Henricksen and Michael Biehn as the villains after username Mindd Kidzag used them in his own 90's Spider-Man trailer. Both actors are both veteran James Cameron actors and I really enjoyed the chance to edit a Henrickson villain.


I used James Cameron's 47 page treatment from 1991 as the basis for the trailer.

In this proposed film, Peter Parker is frustrated youth gifted with great powers and a responsibility he feels unable to fulfill. Peter lacks the necessary guidance of his late uncle Ben. As Spider-Man he's wanted by the Police, and the Daily Bugle angers him with their continuous attempts to paint him as a menace.

However, Peter's life as Spider-Man also becomes a temporary escape as he loses himself in the thrill of his spider-powers.

Peter is tempted by a superpowered criminal businessmen known as Carlton Strand (sic) or Electro, who offers to let him join his criminal organisation of “Master Race” mutants. An organisation which currently includes Strand's henchman Boyd (sic) the Sandman.

The treatment promised a dark R-rated take on the Spider-Man Mythos, with a struggling young hero, a fight on the World Trade Centre, and, as the internet keeps reminding me, a sex scene on the Brooklyn Bridge.
