Ew, I'd rather Andrew Garfield who's better looking + a better actor.

I don't mind Aunt May dating, it's pretty normal. We all love a milf.

Andrew Garfield's long skinny neck always looked odd to me.

He's a supermodel material, so that kind of ethereal element is a plus. Same as Emma Stone.

Tobey's face makes me laugh especially when he's crying in sad scenes. I can't take him seriously.

Tobey was the people's Spiderman.

I loved Andrew Garfield in Hacksaw Ridge, an excellent World War II movie. If you haven't seen it watch it now, he's amazing in it. Andrew Garfield plays a real life soldier who saved nearly 70 lives in the trenches of World War II by acting as a medic and bringing them to safety without firing a gun.

The movie just came out last year in 2016 and it's already a modern classic.

What is that even mean? Andrew Garfield is the people's Spiderman, Ben Affleck is the people's Batman? What.

Good. But what is even Tobey's memorable role? Compare how much awards Andrew Garfield won over him? Those were the people's choice and Andrew is so much better.

Andrew was f*cking terrible. How do you always manage to have the single worst possible taste in any subject?

What's your take on Holland? How does he compare?

He's a good kid, I admire his agility.

He took Kirsten Dunst's criticism of the new movie rather well/professionally.
https://www.google.com/amp/www.games...riticism-nope/

Quote:
Spider-Man trilogy star Kirsten Dunst doesn't care about Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Homecoming star Tom Holland doesn't care that she doesn't care. Holland addressed Dunst's dismissive attitude toward the film in an interview with Movie'n'co UK, but before we get to what Holland thinks, here's a refresher on what Dunst originally said about Homecoming.

"We made the best ones, so who cares?" Dunst told Marie Claire. "I'm like, 'You make it all you want.' They’re just milking that cow for money. It's so obvious. You know what I mean?"

To be fair to Dunst, I don't think she was specifically calling out Holland or the rest of the cast, probably just the execs at Sony and Marvel/Disney who made the whole thing happen. And since publicly traded corporations do, in fact, exist above all else to generate profit for their shareholders I doubt they take offense. But here's the response from Holland.

"I read it and I saw it, and you know, she's entitled to her own opinion and I'm not one to judge at all," Holland began. "I definitely am not doing this movie for the money, it's a job that I think anyone would do regardless of what you were getting paid, you know? All I know is that I've had the greatest time on this movie and I've absolutely loved it, and if she doesn't want to go and see it, I don't really care. But I don't dislike her in any way for what she said, and she's entitled to her own opinion, so it's all cool."

I'm just going to point this out: neither was perfect, but I'd take Tobey a little more.

Tobey had a dry tone. At the same time, barring my nostalgia glasses, I did like elements of his character. He could be emotional but also badass. Additionally, he had some fun dialogue, especially against Macho Ma.... I mean, Bonesaw. Also, if you like a Peter Parker who's funny, he does a good job with one liners in the video game adaptations.

Andrew is entertaining and has the better onscreen chemistry due to him and Emma Stone. Otherwise, I never understood the hype around him. Just not my cup of tea per say.

Personally, the animated voices beat the onscreen actors, a personal favorite being Rino Romano. Still have to catch Homecoming before I comment on Holland.

LOL, Dunst is an idiot. Did she seriously think they were never going to make another Spiderman movie? Does she even know Spiderman has been going on for over 50 years in general in comics or cartoon?

What kind of moron sits there thinking their version of a comic book franchise would be the last one?

Holland missed the point of her criticism by a large margin. She wasn't disparaging his paycheck.

I like Rino Romano and Josh Keaton the best, followed closely by Christopher Daniel Barnes.

As for the films, my thought has always been:

Maguire = Ditko's Spider-Man; quiet, brooding, and cerebral

Garfield = Romita's "handsome" Spider-Man, with more focus on Peter's life out of the suit and romance

I may not ever watch Homecoming, but I get the impression that Holland is basically playing a live action Ultimate/Earth-1610 Peter Parker.
