“Every morning when I wake up”: Tobey Maguire on Whether He Does the Spider-Man 3 Bully Maguire Dance

"Every morning when I wake up": Tobey Maguire on Whether He Does the Spider-Man 3 Bully Maguire Dance

It’s a widespread observation that blockbuster movies always have that one memorable thing about them that everyone remembers for a long time, even decades after their release. The Tobey Maguire-led Spider-Man 3, regardless of the clear superiority of the first two movies in Sam Raimi’s trilogy, has one such scene that still gets refreshed in the minds of every avid internet user (and millennial!)

Yes, we’re talking about Bully Maguire, and more specifically, the one part of Spider-Man 3 in which  Maguire goes crazy-dancing with Peter Parker’s new persona in the movie. That dance is still a memorable moment in Marvel history for fans; even better, Maguire still does the dance to this day!

Tobey Maguire Keeps Doing The Bully Maguire Dance To This Day

Spider-Man 3 is a rollercoaster of emotions and sub-plots that keep you entertained for 139 minutes of its runtime, and it’s good. No wonder it succeeded in upping its commercial performance compared to the previous two installments in the Sam Raimi trilogy, earning a whopping $895 million at the box office.

But the most comical and hilarious part of the movie comes in around the first half of the movie when the symbiote from the crashed meteorite ends up corrupting Peter Parker and starts bringing out darker parts of his personality.

Despite it being shown in a negative light, the one positive that came out of Parker allowing the symbiote to corrupt him was that he had improved confidence and charisma, despite the big ego that came with it.

It all transpired into this one famous scene from the movie in which Tobey Maguire excelled, and it’s the evil dance scene by Peter Parker. Collars up, the black and blue outfit combination, and the new hairstyle followed by a jazzy dance on the street as he walks into a tailor shop and gets himself a full-black suit.

The scene has been subject to thousands of memes ever since then, and with the internet growing even larger today, the scene just cannot be erased from our minds at all, even Tobey Maguire’s! During a Reddit Q&A on the r/movies subreddit, the Babylon star answered a fan question asking if he still does the dance, to which he replied-

“Every morning when I wake up. Just trying to capture the joy of this little guy.”

Attached to that reply is a video of a kid dancing in a somewhat similar fashion to the moves that Maguire’s Peter Parker busted in the scene explained above.

That’s one way to keep the legacy alive!

Fans Are Loving Tobey Maguire’s Fantastic Reply

Long before Tom Holland was even considered to play the role of Spider-Man in the MCU, Tobey Maguire had become the face that everyone thought of whenever they heard of the friendly-neighborhood superhero.

Being a big-time movie star in the 2000s, and having faded somewhat out of relevance in the industry later on up until his reprisal of an alternate Peter Parker in Spider-Man: No Way Home, the Brothers star’s efforts to keep that iconic dance scene alive is well appreciated by fans.

Here’s how they reacted to Maguire’s Q&A reply-



Once more, please! –

The kid gets some love too-

He’s got the whole function riled up-

In case Marvel ever decides on continuing the Sam Raimi trilogy once again, they might as well make it mandatory to cast the Bully Maguire-kid in it!

Spider-Man 3 is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
