Joe Rogan is not afraid to call people out, however, one person he commends is Kevin Feige. Tom Holland first debuted as Spider-Man in 2016 with Captain America: Civil War and he has since then been appearing as the character from one successful movie within the Marvel Cinematic Universe to another. His latest movie, Spider-Man: No Way Home was the biggest Spider-man movie of all time, breaking not only records but also bringing together three generations worth of Spider-man fans.
The character of Peter Parker has been passed on from one actor to another. Toby Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and now Tom Holland have all traveled the skies of New York in their red and blue suits and fans have been supportive of the character since Toby Maguire first wore the mask.
Joe Rogan Commends Kevin Feige For Understanding Strategy And Hiring Tom Holland As Spider-Man
Joe Rogan often calls actors and celebrities out on multiple occasions, but one thing he appreciated was how Kevin Feige decided to hire Tom Holland instead of bringing back an already casted Spider-Man. This ended up saving a lot of money for Marvel as introducing a new actor in a famous role costs them lesser than rehiring an already acclaimed actor.
“I mean, that’s what I would do if I were some gangster Hollywood executive type guy. And I was like listen, listen; we can pay this Peter Parker $20 million bucks per film, or we can hire this guy and pay him a hundred thousand and make him a star.”
While hiring Maguire and Garfield would have been amazing for the fans to see, it would have cost the MCU millions. Getting a new up-and-coming actor like Holland, making him sign a contract with not as much pay as compared to the other two Spider-Men, and then making him famous in the process. This prevents Feige from investing a lot of money and still giving the fans what they want, considering that it is a multi-million dollar franchise and it can have a lot to offer.
Multiple Actors For One Role Is Not Always A Bad Thing According To Joe Rogan
Both Batman and Spider-Man have been seen with multiple different faces, with Batman having over four actors and Spider-Man having three. Although this gives the fans a lot of different actors to pick their favorites out of, it also gives an opportunity for the franchise to divide their budget, expanding more into making a better movie rather than hiring a big name actor.
Roman thinks Kevin Feige is a gangster for taking this step and appreciates how he did not shy away from hiring an actor who isn’t as famous for a role that could make them massive in Hollywood.
