Sam Raimi introduced Tobey Maguire as the Spider-Man in the 2002 film. The actor continued to be everyone’s favorite superhero as he starred in three Spider-Man films until Sony introduced Andrew Garfield as the new Spider-Man in 2012. While the first two films were great at the box office and received positive critics’ remarks, the third film did not manage to live up to fans’ expectations. The film was highly criticized, leading Sam Raimi to decide not to work on another superhero film again.
However, even after over a decade, fans still love Maguire’s Spider-Man. While the film might not have been successful in impressing critics, one of the things about the movie is still highly popular among fans.
Tobey Maguire Reacts to Bully Maguire Memes
Although the 2007 Spider-Man was not as big as the first two films in the series, Peter Parker’s evil persona has turned out to be one of the fan favorites from the 2007 film. Fans have named Parker’s symbiote-infected personality Bully Maguire, and the character has been the subject of popular memes.
When Tobey Maguire learned about these memes, he had something interesting to say to fans. The Brothers star shared his reaction on a Reddit AMA. “Fairly neutral. I did see the Bully Maguire videos, which was a funny discovery,” he shared on Reddit.
When one fan suggested he should explore more r/raimimemes, he shared that he has been checking out “r/raimimemes.” He also shared that he is grateful for fans’ love and support throughout the years.
“I’ve had some funny and touching experiences from spontaneous encounters in public and someone being surprised to share how I’ve helped them through hard times. It’s sweet, and I feel grateful. Especially with kids, it’s almost like magic. It’s amazing to see their eyes light up.”
Another fan asked Maguire if he still practices dance moves from the 2007 film. He shared a viral video of a child doing the infamous dance routine at a kid’s party and said, “Every morning when I wake up. Just trying to capture the joy of this little guy.”
Tobey Maguire reprised his role as Spider-Man in the 2021 film, Spider-Man: No Way Home. The film also marked his Hollywood comeback after his last appearance in Edward Zwick’s Pawn Sacrifice. The Details star recently appeared in the 2022 comedy-drama Babylon alongside Margot Robbie and Brad Pitt.
