Tobey Maguire admits to being ‘blown away’ by Tom Holland’s acting skills while filming No Way Home

Tobey Maguire has claimed that Tom Holland blew him away when the two shot Spider-Man: No Way Home. The biggest movie of 2021 was Spider-Man: No Way Home. The film is the third solo Spider-Man film in MCU, and it follows the eponymous wall-crawler (Tom Holland) and Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) while trying a spell that goes awry.

However, Maguire was the first actor to play Spider-Man in the twenty-first century, and appeared in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy. The three films, which were released between 2002 and 2007, were huge hits with viewers. Interestingly, Maguire admitted to being “blown away” by Holland during the filming of No Way Home in a recent featurette that accompanied the film’s digital release (as reported by Insider). Tobey said, according to Screenrant: “Right away, the first scene we recorded together, I was just impressed with how good he was in the scene, and how generous he was and vulnerable.”

These thoughts were shared by co-star Andrew Garfield also, who remarked that No Way Home really was Holland’s Spider-Man image, and all the weight was on him. Words like this from stars like Maguire and Garfield are without a doubt great praise for Holland.

Meanwhile, since the release of No Way Home, many have wondered if Maguire and Garfield will appear once again at MCU or maybe even make more of their own independent films. Although nothing has been reported yet, “never say never” is always a good motto. With Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness ready to hit theaters soon, it’s clear that MCU is not done with Multiverse yet, so the characters may yet return.
