As it happens with Batman on DC, for Marvel it is the same with Spider-Man. It is very difficult to agree on who was the one who gave away the best version of the character: yes Tobey Maguire with Sam Raimi, Andrew Garfield with Marc Webb O Tom Holland with Jon Watts. They all knew how to add their seasoning to a character very loved by the fans.
Now, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is about to reunite the three for the first time on screen. Although it was not officially confirmed, the trailer that arrived this Monday and confirmed the appearance of the multiverse in the film laid the groundwork for speculating with seeing each of the three variants of Peter Parker.
The of Tobey Maguire, the first in the world of cinema, has a great sequence that became iconic. Towards the end of the film released in 2002 he was seen Peter Parker while swinging through the streets of New York. While it seems that this scene was made 100% with computers, you will be surprised to learn that it had its share of reality.
Steven Saeta, production manager from the movie Spider-Man from Sam Raimi told that “made live-action”. He actually explained that it was “almost” real action and detailed: “We hooked up two 85-meter cranes with a cable connecting them and we used a remote-controlled camera, hooked to a cable that went down and then up. This is how we did the positioning. With that done, with the camera going up and down, in visual effects they put a Spider-Man digital to create the shot “.
The kiss scene between Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst also had its complications
It is fair to say that another of the great sequences left by the first film of Spider-Man from Sam Raimi It was the one in the alley where Peter Parker and Mary Jane (Kirsten Dunst) kissed for the first time. It is a sequence that was replicated ad nauseam, as a parody and as a tribute.
Saeta he remembered that achieving it was not as easy as it seemed. Beyond the versions that speak of that a Tobey water got into his nose and prevented him from doing the scene, Steven recalled: “They did it a couple of times, they saw the results but they said it wasn’t working out, I didn’t have what they were looking for”. So, they took one day, and it was the next, when they did it again, the alley was built in one of the warehouses of Sony, and they finally got that mythical scene.
