Tobey Maguire Offers His Take on His Spider-Man Successors

Tobey Maguire might be most famous for playing the first major big screen version of Spider-Man in 2002's Spider-Man, directed by Sam Raimi.

Now, the actor who brought Peter Parker to life has revealed what he thinks about the actors who replaced him.

"What I've seen, I've appreciated. I like both of the actors a ton," Maguire told The Hollywood Reporter, adding that he hadn't seen all of the Spider-Man movies. "I think they're both super talented. I would just say I appreciated them and I like the actors. I like the choices."

Sam Raimi's Spider-Man was one of the first superhero movies to see big commercial success. On it's opening weekend, Spider-Man made over $100,000,000, the first film at the time to do so. Maguire went on to star in all three Spider-Man films directed by Sam Raimi. While there were talks of a fourth film, it never panned out.

The Raimi films were followed by 2012's Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel in 2014. Both Amazing Spider-Man films were directed by Marc Webb and starred Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man. The first appearance of Tom Holland's Spider-Man was 2016's Avengers: Civil War, and he's been the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Spider-Man in Spider-Man: Homecoming and Avengers: Infinity War.

Maguire spends these days focusing more on his production company, Material Pictures, but says he doesn't rule out playing another superhero, "I just don't really have an 'I would or wouldn't do' mind-set. I'll just do whatever … whatever it is that comes that I feel called to, that may or may not fit in any kind of box."

Tom Holland is set to appear again as Spider-Man in both Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From HomeSpider-Man: Far From Home releases on July 5, 2019.
