Tobey Maguire – Spider-Man 2

6. Tobey Maguire – Spider-Man 2

6 of 11

At the time of its release, Spider-Man 2 was the all-around “best” comic book film ever made. Time has certainly passed since its debut, but audiences still haven’t forgotten catching up with Peter Parker who seemed to have his whole life together at the beginning of the film only to watch it slowly slip away from him as Otto Octavius’s life unraveled in a matter of minutes. Maguire made the struggle of having a dating life, taking care of those who raised you, going to college and slinging webs nightly to keep New York City safe feel like it as realistic as an actor could. We couldn’t help but want to help Peter.
