Spider-Man 2002 Casting:-
Born in 1984, Parker is an academically-gifted but socially inept student who is bitten by a genetically modified spider and gains spider-like abilities. Maguire was cast as Parker in July 2000, having been Sam Raimi’s primary choice for the role after he saw The Cider House Rules. The studio was initially hesitant to cast someone who did not seem to fit the ranks of “adrenaline-pumping, tail-kicking titans” but Maguire managed to impress studio executives with his audition.
The actor was signed for a deal in the range of $3 to $4 million with higher salary options for two sequels. To prepare, Maguire was trained by a physical trainer, a yoga instructor, a martial arts expert, and a climbing expert, taking several months to improve his physique. Maguire studied spiders and worked with a wireman to simulate the arachnid-like motion, and had a special diet. The studio had expressed interest in actors Leonardo DiCaprio, Freddie Prinze, Jr, Chris Klein, Wes Bentley, and Heath Ledger.
DiCaprio had been considered by James Cameron for the role in 1995, while Raimi joked of Prinze that “[he] won’t even be allowed to buy a ticket to see this film. Also, actors Scott Speedman, Jay Rodan, and James Francowere involved in screen tests for the lead role.CEO of Oscorp who tests an unstable strength enhancer on himself and becomes the insane and powerful Green Goblin.
Unaware of Spider-Man’s true identity, he also sees himself as a father figure for Parker, ignoring his son, Harry. Dafoe was cast as Osborn in November 2000. Nicolas Cage, John Malkovich, and Jim Carrey turned down the role. Dafoe insisted on wearing the uncomfortable costume as he felt that a stuntman would not convey the character’s necessary body language. The 580-piece suit took half an hour to put on.

In April 1999, although Sony Pictures optioned from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer all preceding script versions of a Spider-Man film, it only exercised the options on “the Cameron material,” which contractually included a multi-author screenplay and a forty-five-page “scriptment” credited only to James Cameron. the
The studio announced they were not hiring Cameron himself to direct the film nor would they be using his script. The studio lined up Roland Emmerich, Tony Scott, Chris Columbus, Ang Lee, David Fincher, Jan de Bont, and M. Night Shyamalan as potential directors. Fincher did not want to depict the origin story, pitching the film as being based on The Night Gwen Stacy Died storyline, but the studio disagreed. Sam Raimi was attached to direct in January 2000, for a summer 2001 release. He had been a fan of the comic book during his youth, and his passion for Spider-Man earned him the job.
