It’s no surprise that the man-eating, storm-riding sharks of the Sharknado franchise will return for another meteorological massacre this year in Sharknado 3, but their prey this time around could be the most dangerous foe they’ve faced so far. In the upcoming third installment of the franchise, the tornado filled with vicious, bloodthirsty sharks will make landfall in a place filled with some of the nation’s most vicious, bloodthirsty creatures: Washington, D.C.

Syfy and Sharknado studio The Asylum announced this week that the next film in the low-budget, high-laughs franchise will be set in Washington, D.C., with an expected premiere in July. Franchise stars Ian Ziering and Tara Reid will reprise their roles from the previous two films in the series, which saw them first battle airborne sharks in Los Angeles in Sharknado, then across the country in New York City during Sharknado 2: The Second One.

Anthony C. Ferrante, who directed the first two films, will return for the third along with franchise screenwriter Thunder Levin.

After Sharknado became a viral sensation in 2013, Sharknado 2: The Second One was watched by over 3.9 million viewers in 2014, making it the network’s most popular original movie of all time.

Spider-Man is arguably the most popular and beloved superhero in modern pop culture. A staple in movies and television since the 1960s, Spidey is Marvel's crowning jewel, a near-universally adored hero that appeals to children and adults alike. Few superheroes have as much staying power as Spidey, cementing his place as a timeless icon and a staple of modern pop culture.

The web crawler has a rich and long history in movies and television. Since transitioning from the page to the screen in the Silver Age, Spider-Man has starred in countless animated series, received multiple live-action movies, and appeared as a major supporting figure in many other projects. But who, out of all the actors who have played him, is the best Spider-Man? It's not an easy decision - every actor has brought something unique and valuable to the table.
