Spider-Man is a fictional superhero, published by Marvel Comics, created by writer-editor Stan Lee and writer-artist Steve Ditko, and first appeared in 1962 as Peter Parker in the Silver Age of Comic Books. The Spider-Man was created with strength, agility, the ability to stick tosurfaces and shoot spider-webs using wrist-mounted devices of his own invention, which he calls “web-shooters”, and react to danger quickly with his “spider-sense”, which aids him during combat.
However, several actors have played this character since inception but the most recent modern Spiderman characters are Tobey Maguire (2002 & 2007), Andrew Garfield (2014), and Tom Holland (2017). It has occurred that some Spiderman viewers still believes that the best Spiderman so far is that of Tobey Maguire. Many viewers has pictured Spiderman superhero as a simple and non aggressive superhero, who is gifted with some skills and not a super powers, and that is why he always sustains injury in most of his combats because all he basically has is the web and other web related skills.
Some people believe the fact that his skills being just a little more than a regular human is what makes the character interesting and unique, and all these were perfectly portrayed in Tobey Maguire’s Spiderman and to some extent in Andrew Garfield’s Spiderman in 2014. But the current Tom Holland’ Spiderman has upgraded his suit with some features almost like ironman, going into the categories of the superheroes with extravagant and unrealistic superpowers, and this has got some viewers thinking are they trying to make Spiderman get to the level of merging with the Avengers? Which will absolutely erase the attribute of Spiderman being the neighbour’s friends because his new suit is more or less like a war machine. But the initial Spiderman characters especial the one of Tobey Maguire was real, easily believable, enjoyable and realistic, which even kids can easily fathom easily.
These notions have created the mindset of some viewers seeing Tom Hollands in his suit as Tobey Maguire in order to enjoy the recently Homecoming clips. With all the new upgrade in Spiderman’s suit, there is tendency that he might visit Asgard someday to dine with Thor, and probably we will have ‘Spiderman Reborn’ as a god (probably god of spiders or god of insects). What is your view on this, do you think the current Tom Holland Spiderman is better than the recent initial ones? Comment your views below.
