So many Spider-man films, so many Spider-men.
The actors who portrayed the iconic Marvel hero rose to fame in their respective acting careers with the different film franchises they took on for years. Since Tom Holland is now carrying the role of Spider-man (nee Peter Parker), many have debated on social media on who played him best.
The top three choices of debate are Tobey Maguire (“Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man 3”), Andrew Garfield (The Amazing Spider-Man, The Amazing Spider-Man 2) and Tom Holland (Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Avengers: Infinity War, upcoming Avengers 4).
I’m only going to say this once: each actor who played spider-man was GOOD!!! Tom Holland is the best at portraying him as the dorky teenager he is, Andrew Garfield was the best emo/dramatic one and Tobey Maguire is the original!!!!! pic.twitter.com/BloDeWWKX2

Tobey is the everyman Peter from the 60s and 70s.
Andrew is the cool guy Peter from the 80s and 90s.
Tom is the Peter from the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon.

Just recently, Stan Lee, the writer and creator of Marvel Comics, had something to say about Tom Holland’s portrayal of Spider-man.
I think @TomHolland1996 is a great Spider-Man. He is the exact height and age I envisioned when I first wrote Spider-Man. Spidey was never supposed to be too large. How is my friend Tom doing?

The 21-year-old actor has responded to Lee’s kind words.
Thanks very much Stan. It all started with you sir. Looking forward to catching up soon bud https://t.co/KbF5HSxJAo

Although, it has been reported that Lee has also said good and remarkable compliments on Maguire and Garfield’s respective portrayals, so there’s no bias on who’s the better Spider-Man in Lee’s eyes.
