The world had been craving a Spider-Man movie for years, but it wasn’t until Sam Raimi brought it to the big screen in 2002 that they got their wish. Even though there were a lot of actors to try out, Maguire was chosen for the role of Peter Parker, and he set the tone for each Spider-Man to follow.

In 2004, Maguire reprised the role of Peter Parker again, even though there were rumors that Jake Gyllenhaal was almost cast. After the success of Spider-Man 2, Maguire came back one more time to play in Spider-Man 3

While there were clamors for a fourth installment, critics and fans alike weren’t thrilled with the third installment, and it never got off the ground. A new Spider-verse was created, and the series was rebooted with Andrew Garfield as the new Spider-Man.

The Spider-Man films have never been connected before, but No Way Home changed all that. It not only gave a nod to the first two actors to play the iconic hero, but also brought their universes together. Fans were thrilled to have three Spider-Mans instead of just one, and it brought in some of the greatest Spider-Man villains to hit the big screen.

Even though Maguire was not the main Spider-Man for this film, and was only on screen for around 30 minutes according to Distractify, he made quite a bit of money for his role. In fact, it’s been reported that Tobey Maguire made $1 million for Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Fans were delighted to have Maguire back, even though there have been rumors he acted like a diva on set, and some are wondering how much he made for the original films. 

How much did Tobey Maguire make for the original three ‘Spider-Man’ movies?

While he made quite a bit for No Way Home, Maguire actually made far more for the first three films. According to Yahoo! News, he made $4 million for the original Spider-Man film. That was quite a bit of money, but he earned a massive raise for the sequel.

Maguire earned $17.5 million for Spider-Man 2. If that wasn’t enough, he also received 5 percent of the movie’s box office earnings. It brought in $373.6 million in the U.S. and Canada, and $415 million worldwide, for a total of $788.6 million. This meant that Maguire received an extra $39.43 million.

For Spider-Man 3, he took a bit of a pay cut and was given only $15 million for the role. He was also offered 7.5 percent of the gross earnings, which was a bit of a raise. It earned $336.5 million in the U.S. and Canada and $558.4 million worldwide. In total, this was $894.9 million, which means Maguire earned $63.67 million. This was almost double what he made for Spider-Man 2.

While there hasn’t been an official announcement about Maguire reprising his role as Spider-Man, there have been some rumors that he may return as a part of a Secret Wars project. Nothing has been confirmed, however, so we’ll just have to wait and see if Maguire and Garfield come back.
