Spider-Man Movie 1For months it’s been called the Untitled Spider-Man Reboot. That title, which I was secretly hoping would stay, has been tossed aside like dreams of a Green Hornet sequel.

As of this week, the new Spider-Man movie finally has an official title: The Amazing Spider-Man, the name of the original Spider-Man monthly comic book. But as with anything, there was a long list of possible, but rejected, titles.

Here, from the not-so-top-secret files of Marvel, are the top 10 rejected titles for the 2012 Spider-Man movie:

10. Iron Man 3

9. $pectacular $pider-Man

8. Not The Spider-Man Musical

7. Spider-Man 4-D

6. Amazing Fantasy #15

5. Spidey (Sorry, we’re saving that one for the Pixar version)

4. Still No Money For Ditko

3. Clone Of Spider-Man 1

2. Two And A Half Spider-Men

And, finally, the last rejected title for the new Spider-Man movie:
