Fan-Made Trailer for James Cameron's SPIDER-MAN with DiCaprio and Schwarzenegger

Before Sam Raimi jumped on board to make a live-action Spider-Man film for Sony Pictures, James Cameron was working on a version in the 1990s. It would have been a grittier, more adult version of the web slinger. The movie would have featured the villains Electro, Sandman, and Doctor Octopus. Leonardo DiCaprio would have taken the role of Spider-Man and Arnold Schwarzenegger would have played Doctor Octopus.

Thanks to YouTube user Mindd Kidzag, we have a fun, fan-edited "what if/leaked VHS copy" trailer for the canceled project. The trailer was inspired by Cameron's 47-page script treatment, and it uses footage from several different films, which I included a list of below the embed. The trailer turned out to be pretty fun. This definitely would have made for an interesting movie.
