An all-access, behind-the-scenes look at the making of the amazing Hollywood blockbuster
In 1962, when Spider-Man first appeared in the pages of Amazing Fantasy #15, the response was so electrifying the web-spinner was given his very own comic book series within a year. Now, on the 40th anniversary of that fateful beginning, Marvel Comics’ most popular superhero stars in his own spectacular feature film!
Here for the first time all the juicy details of Spider-Man’s journey to the silver screen are revealed. From script to soundstage, from costumes to visual effects, the book captures the creative energies of those responsible for this supreme act of illusion. Behind the Mask of Spider-Man features:
· Hundreds of never-before-seen photos, costume sketches, storyboards, and set design illustrations
· Candid reflections and delicious anecdotes from cast members, including Tobey Maguire, Willem Dafoe, and Kirsten Dunst
· Fascinating revelations from director Sam Raimi (The Gift, Evil Dead, For Love of the Game) on how he sought to capture the outcast hero who is the essence of Spider-Man
· The magic behind the film’s dazzling visual effects and digital wizardry
· Scenes that never made it into the movie
A movie like this comes along once in a lifetime–a story of good and evil, love and cruelty, awesome powers that become both blessing and curse . . .
It is the marvelous story of Spider-Man.

Mark Cotta Vaz has also written Tales of the Dark Knight: Batman's First Fifty Years, Star Wars: Secrets of Shadows of the Empire and Industrial Light and Magic: Into the Digital Realm.From School Library Journal:
Adult/High School-An intriguing glimpse into the genesis of both the character and the movie. In the foreword, Stan Lee explains how he made an end run around his editor to get the first "Spider-Man" story published. Vaz then segues into the tumultuous history of bringing Spidey to the screen amid bankruptcy and competing claims before moving on to the details of movie production. Some of this information will be familiar to anyone who has been reading magazines or watching television specials, like the story of the last-minute trip to Europe to audition Kirsten Dunst for the role of Mary Jane Watson. But there's plenty of behind-the-scenes information, too, and plenty of F/X information for those fascinated by wall-crawling, web-slinging CGI. The book is packed with photos and production drawings, including early takes on the Green Goblin, who evolved considerably in style from his comic-book origins.
