Spider-Man is one of the most loved heroes in the superhero universe. Owing to the massive success and fans’ love for the comics, its first live-screen movie was released in 2002. The role of the web-slinging action hero made the lead Tobey Maguire an overnight star. The movie was a massive success, which led to more Spider-Man movies including Spider-Man 2 in 2004 and Spider-Man 3 in 2007. The big and soulful-eyed boy received amazing reviews from critics and fans.

The second one was Spider-Man 2, which was released in 2014.

It was made with a budget of $200 million, and the box office collection was $794 million, which was lesser than the first one.

The third and the last in the Maguire series was Spider-Man 3, released after three years in 2007. The movie was produced with a massive budget of $258 million, and its worldwide collection was $894 million. However, it received a mixed response from the critics and audience, leading to the scrapping of future films.

The most recent and the highest budget movie among all Holland movies is Spider-Man: No Way Home. Released in 2021, the movie had a budget of $200 million, and the box office collection was unbelievable in numbers, at $1.9 billion. The movie delved into the concept of the multiverse, where all three Spider-Men; Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire, and Andrew Garfield, get together to fight for a greater cause. The chemistry between Holland and Zendaya was also loved by the fans.

It would be interesting to note that Tom Holland’s biggest hit was made at a $58 million lesser budget than Tobey Maguire’s greatest hit, Spider-Man 3. However, the box office collection for Holland’s movie was more than double the collection of Maguire’s film.
