LOS ANGELES (AP) _ The comic book-inspired blockbuster ``Spider-Man 2'' will debut on DVD on Nov. 30 in a two-disc set with about 10 hours of extra features, Columbia Tri-Star Home Entertainment announced Friday.

The film has collected $363 million since it's July debut and ranks as the third highest-grossing movie of the year, behind ``Shrek 2'' at No. 1 and ``The Passion of the Christ'' at No. 2.

Among the extra features will be a 12-part documentary on the making of ``Spider-Man 2,'' a multi-angle feature that shows the climactic pier battle from various perspectives, and a blooper reel.

A separate collectible set containing the ``Spider-Man 2'' widescreen DVD will also include a postcard collection of movie artwork, a 25-page comic book artists' portfolio, and a reprint of the Marvel comic book, ``The Amazing Spider-Man'' .50, titled ``Spider-Man No More,'' on which the movie was partially based.

The film stars Tobey Maguire as the web-slinging hero and Alfred Molina as eight-armed enemy Doctor Octopus.
