Lego Spider-Man is a product range of the Lego construction toy, based on the first two Spider-Man movies. The theme was first introduced in 2002 as a sub-brand of the Lego Studios theme, to tie in with the release of the first Spider-Man film. Three new sets were released in 2003, this time without the Lego Studios branding. In 2004, 7 new sets were introduced, to tie-in with the Spider-Man 2 movie. After this, the line was discontinued, and the rights to the third film in the series Spider-Man 3 were sold instead to rival company MEGA Brands, resulting in a Spider-Man 3 range of the Mega Bloks toy. However, in 2012 LEGO released a set based on the Ultimate Spider-Man animated series in their Marvel Superheroes line.

Discontinuation

After 2004, no new Lego Spider-Man sets were released, despite the release of the third film in the franchise, Spider-Man 3. Instead, rival toy company MEGA Brands, who produce the Lego-compatible product Mega Bloks, entered into a multi-year licensing deal with Marvel Enterprises, giving them the rights to produce 'playsets, vehicles and other building-themed products' based upon Spider-Man, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Hulk, Captain America, Daredevil, Silver Surfer, Punisher, Blade and Namor.[1] It is unknown whether Lego intended to discontinue the Spider-Man license or were out-bid.
