Re: Who is your favorite Spider-Man?

Maguire is the closest to “my” Spider-Man and feels the most comics accurate. Garfield’s movies were pretty awful writing and plots but he isn’t bad, just a bit darker and less nerdy. I like Holland but to me he’s always been kind of an Ultimate Spider-Man character and very different than how I picture PP.

So I guess I should stay out of any thread that even mentions Spider-Man to avoid spoilers for No Way Home.

Agreed. I never read the comics, but I always thought PP was the nerdy loner type student before getting bitten. As great as the new movies are, I just never got that vibe from Holland.

I would, just to be safe. It would take a special kind of asshole to spoil outside of the movie thread but things might slip.

Re: Who is your favorite Spider-Man?

Since there has only been 3 good Spider-Man movies and Toby Maguire was in two of them...I will go with him.

Re: Who is your favorite Spider-Man?

I voted Tom Holland, but Maguire and Garfield both did pretty well. Garfield didn't quite get it in the first movie (too Emo), but in TASM2 he really felt like Peter.

My pick for the best COLLEGE age Peter Parker, though, is Nicholas Hammond. He really nailed the role of the guy in the comics in the 70's, and his take on college Peter would have been great in the 80's, too.

Re: Who is your favorite Spider-Man?

I've watched ALL the Spiderman movies when they came out. After watching No Way Home,
Spoiler:
Garfield, hands down, he stole the show and was my favorite part of NWH. Holland is a boy, Garfield is a MAN. Or at least more mannish Give him the third movie he's owed, by the same writer who did NWH.

Re: Who is your favorite Spider-Man?

If I'm to base it off of whom I feel is closest to the original depiction of Spider-Man from the Marvel comics in the1960's, I would go with Tobey Maguire for Peter Parker and Andrew Garfield for Spider-Man. Andrew Garfield had the best sarcastic quips as Spider-Man, but as Peter Parker he came off as the cool kid that could fit in with the cool crowd but also identified with the nerdier students as well. Holland's version didn't really fully capture either aspect of Peter Parker or Spider-Man, but still made his movies entertaining.

Garfield had best acted Spider-Man and would put him 2nd in retrospect, but Holland is Spider-Man.
