Spiderman 1/2/3 are really not sci-fi?

Quite curious, as most superhero films are categorised under sci-fi genre. Here Spiderman 1/2/3 all three pages does not have sci fi genre. I mean to ask, do data editors really saw the film? If yes, then how come its not sci fi and only "action adventure?" Sci-Fi genre according to IMDB guidelines specifies that it must be about extra terrestrial life or about different species (Avatar) Spiderman as per my extent of knowledge has superpowers from a "genetic spiderbite". Why sci fi is deleted from all three parts. Is it really fair?

It actually seems that adding Sci Fi genres to the series is too "tough" for so called data editors. Only Spiderman Homecoming (2017) and The Amazing Spiderman 2 (2014) have Sci Fi genres only. Seriously this is their "civilised behavior".

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Spiderman 1/2/3 genre issue.

Prior notice, i made edits for Spiderman (2002), Spiderman 2 (2004) and Spiderman 3 (2007) adding Sci Fi as respected genre. But previous complain isnt solved yet. https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topi...

Mam Spiderman Homecoming, Even Amazing Spiderman 2 are termed sci fi, whereas the spiderman trilogy had been slashed the sci fi genre out. Even in Amazing spiderman. I tried a number and number of times to add sci fi. Sci-Fi states about mutants, superhumans etc. Here Spiderman is a superhuman and so the enemies.

Apologies for the delay. Our staff have reviewed and agreed the genre of Sci-Fi should be added to these titles and I have submitted the change to the title now. Please allow up to 48 hours for all changes to be visible on all platforms of the website.
