New video shows Tobey Maguire still retains his spider-sense, 21 years after he first played Spider-Man in 2002’s Spider-Man. It’s exciting to see him make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in 2021 in Spider-Man: No Way Home, in which he teams up with fellow Spider-Man actors Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland. As shown in No Way Home, Maguire is still quite capable of playing Peter Parker, and he still has the spider-sense of Spider-Man.
In a new video posted by Culture Crave, Tobey Maguire has been spotted in a museum exhibit by a fan, and he appears to be demonstrating that he has Spider-Man’s special powers. Watch the video below.
When the person filming the video focuses on the Spider-Man actor, Maguire turns and appears to be staring directly into the camera, giving the impression that he felt he was being filmed. The text on the video reads: “Spider’s senses are really strong.” Reactions to the video note that this is not the first time Maguire has displayed his spider-sense, in fact he has reacted in a similar way on other occasions he has been filmed.
In 2022, TikTok user beaanim_ shared a video of Tobey Maguire at a Billie Eilish concert where he seemed to feel like he was being filmed and looked into the camera. There is a video on YouTube of Maguire at airports looking directly at the camera while being filmed by paparazzi or fans. Considering that Maguire has been an actor for over two decades, it makes sense how he feels when he gets shot. Obviously, it’s unlikely that the actor actually has Spider-Man’s fictional powers of spider-sense, even if he appears to actually have them.
Since playing Spider-Man throughout his original trilogy and returning for a special appearance in No Way Home, Maguire’s role as a superhero has become one of the actor’s most iconic roles. After his return in No Way Home, there was a lot of demand for his own Spider-Man 4, although there was no official announcement. Sandman actor Thomas Haden Church recently said he “heard rumors” that director Sam Raimi is returning to direct Maguire’s Spider-Man 4, but it’s unclear if anything will come of it.
However, after No Way Home, Maguire said he was open to playing Peter Parker again in a possible Spider-Man 4. While Tom Holland is expected to star in his own Spider-Man 4, there could be room for both series. in the multiverse. However, until there is any official announcement from Sony or Marvel, it remains unknown if Maguire will ever get another film of his own. At the very least, it looks like Maguire is keeping his spider-sense sharp just in case he gets invited to the new Spider-Man movie.
