Question I am the only one with this problem?

I loved the movie, but am I the only one that has a problem with Toby Maguire? I just think they could have chosen a better actor.

A better actor for SPider-Man maybe, but not a better actor for Peter Parker.

Toby Maguire looked too young , sounded like a whiny petulant child and during those scenes when he tried to frown like he was angry were laughable to say the least. He didn't fit or even come close to the character of Peter Parker and as Spiderman...... laughing laughing

No offense, but this this is at least the second time in recent history that you've managed to drag the "man-spider" thing into a completely unrelated topic. Do you always do that?

When its a discussion about the movie of SONYS yeah.If we were talking about the upcoming Catwoman movie which ALSO betrays the source material,I would be referring to it as CRAPWOMAN all the time.

I liked Tobey Maguire as Spider-man. No, he wasn't perfect (who is), but he was certainly more than okay. He is a good actor and he has the perfect body to play Spider-man: not too muscled, but more the body of a trained athlete. Compared to many heroes, Spider-man hasn't the most impressive muscles. Neither has Tobey.

Anyway, I don't have a problem with him. Besides, if you don't like him, then propose another actor. But finding a truly good actor who also looks like Peter Parker (Tobey does look a bit like him) and who has the ideal figure to play Spider-man will give some difficulties. And the idea to have two different actors (one for for Spider-man, one for Peter Parker) sucks.

The only bad idea in the Spider-man movie was the laughable costume of the Green Goblin. But Tobey was okay.

Tobey was great as high school, nerdy shy Parker. But shouldn't he have grown into a more confident and wisecracking attitude once he achieved his spidey powers? As Spider-man his wisecracks didnt' flow well enough to me. The scene where he told off Jameson while Gobby attacked the Bugle was kinda awkward to me--it wasn't funny.

your forgetting the OTHER bad idea they had for the movie which will be in the next sequel also.see my sig below on what that horrible idea was.

I didn't mind him as Peter Parker. It's when he wore the spandex that bothered me. He sounded like a dweeb. Especially the part where he saves MJ for the first time and swings away with her. He just sounded too much like Puny Parker. I liked the original spider-man cartoon where Parker would deepen his voice when in costume. Just my 2 cents.

'nuff said.

I would have proposed one if I could have thought of a good one, but truth be told it's big shoes to fill. Maybe introducing an unknown actor would have been a better choice.

Don't laugh, but I can see Brendan Fraser as a good Spider-man. He is an underestimated actor who plays roles ranging from nerd-kid to tough hero. I loved him in The Mummy, but despite the fact that his most other movies aren't that good (some were pretty good, the rest sucked), he always plays very well.

But then again, he maybe is a little bit too old.

I think Tobey was a pretty good choice. I was pissed at first becuase I couldn't picture him as Spider-Man, but then I remembered he isn't relly playing Spider-Man, he was cast as Peter Parker.
I think Brendan Fraser is too tall to be Parker. Also, you have to remember that the movie took place right after he had gained his powers. I think we will see much more wisecracking in the next one because he has had time to grow into his powers, and has had two years to become more confident.
And as a final note; everyone should really try to ignore Mr. Parker before he ruins this thread just like every other one. (Although I do agree on the Catwoman). He just can't let a topic drop, he needs to bring it into every other thread he posts on. Gets kinda old.

Freddie Prinze Jr was going to play him at 1st and I thought that was awesome until Tobey got the part at the last minute. If Freddie got the role, he would have been good.

As far as who's cast as Peter Parker, isn't it a bit late for that? MacGuire is cast, and we'll be looking at him for at least one more movie. Brendan Fraser would have been an execrable choice; the mere idea makes me laugh out loud. He's the same character in every movie, and the loveable-goofball schtick gets old fast. Seen it already.

a wisecracking spidey is definitely needed...

even a wise-cracking Parker....he does that a lot too in the comics. To Jameson, to Gwen, to MJ, to Flash, etc...

The best portrayal would have to be Peter Parker in Spider-man 90s Animated Series. If only they didn't make him look so Nick Hammond (sp).

a wise cracking spidey is definately needed! Maybe Slyvester Stallone? Or that guy in the Grudge? Spidey has to be annoyingly funny next time out ! Geez, where are the annoying wise cracks? That's what made me a fan of ol spin head! Tobey playts Parker brillaintly but if they needed someone else, make it Nicholas Cage!

Exactly. That's why he was perfect. You would look at Peter Parker like the pathetic kid, just makes you respect all the more when he does the right thing.
