With the collaboration of multiple Spiderman, the popularity of the character has skyrocketed. The fans are craving to explore more about Spiderman and they are simply clamoring to get more out of the character. 

There are tons of major prestigious names who have performed brilliantly as our friendly neighbor Spiderman on the screens. The character of Spiderman has been played by three major names from the Hollywood world which include Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland. While many have lent their voice to Spiderman’s character in animation movies and series. So, today in this article, we will talk about every actor who has played Spider-man. 

Hollywood Actors Who Played Spider-Man 

1. Tobey Maguire

The introduction of Spiderman in the superhero world was something new for the audience. While there were a lot of dilemmas on whether the fans will accept something like a Spider-guy protecting the world, who could have pulled the role better than Tobey Maguire. He delivered a stunning performance as Spiderman and the audience showered their love for the franchise. The first Spider-man movie and its sequel, Spiderman 2 instantly turned out to be blockbusters. Though the negative characters added magic to the plots, it was Tobey Maguire who carried the responsibility to make it a big hit on his shoulders. The audience loved witnessing Tobey as Spiderman. Both the movies performed incredibly well collecting a box office collection of over $821 million and $789 million worldwide respectively.

While the fans were storming the Internet with requests to bring back Tobey as Spiderman, Tobey Maguire actually made a comeback in 2007 in Spiderman 3. Though the movie received mixed reviews, the performance of Tobey and the box office collection masked the problems. Tobey performed incredibly well as Spiderman. However, fans felt the lack of excellence of Tobey while playing the evil Peter’s character. Sam Raimi, the director behind all the Spiderman movies featuring Tobey Maguire also admitted that Spiderman 3 was the worst one they created. However, the movie was a hit and it earned around $8949.9 million worldwide collection. But after Spiderman 3, Tobey left the shoes of Spiderman as the creators tried to take another walk introducing other characters like Spiderman. However, in the latest Spiderman movie, Spiderman: No Way Home, Tobey Maguire made a booming comeback as Spiderman of a different universe other than the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So, the chances of witnessing a full movie featuring Tobey Maguire as Spiderman is still high. 

2. Andrew Garfield 

Andrew Garfield has been one of the most controversial Spidermen on our list. Though he is one of the finest actors in the Hollywood industry and has won tons of awards for his flawless acting abilities, the fans found it difficult to initially accept him as Spiderman after Tobey spread his magic playing the character. Though the first venture of Andrew Garfield as Spiderman in the movie Amazing Spiderman received mixed reviews from the audience, he won their hearts with his performance in its sequel. With Amazing Spiderman 2, Andrew stood out to be one of the best Spiderman of all time. He performed brilliantly and the movie was a hit collecting over $750 million worldwide. However, Marvel overtook the character of Spiderman and introduced the character in their universe with a new actor, Tom Holland. And it took several years for Andrew Garfield to make a comeback as Spiderman once again in the latest movie.

It was among the biggest grossing movies in the year 2016. While all Spiderman fans were clamoring to see the character back on the screens from 2014, Tom Holland gave them a reason for joy. In 2017, Tom Holland’s popularity got an insane boost when he got his first Spiderman-oriented movie, Spiderman: Homecoming. The audience showered positive reviews and praises on the movie. Right from then, Tom Holland has been a part of multiple Marvel movies as Spiderman like Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame, Spiderman: Far From Home, and the latest one Spiderman: No Way Home. Marvel has revealed that they have many more projects surrounding Spiderman lined up. So, it’s pretty obvious we will see Tom Holland back in the character of Spiderman.
