Spider-Man TikTok imagines Holland and Garfield’s reaction to Maguire’s web shooters
Tobey Maguire’s organic web shooters spark controversy with the other Spider-Men in this TikTok imagining what will happen in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
A TikTok user posted a new viral video imagining how Tom Holland and Andrew Garfield might react to Tobey Maguire’s 2002 web shooters Spider Man. Even if The Amazing Spider-Man and the MCUs Spider Man the movies follow the comics and have their Peter Parker webs from a device strapped to his wrist, in 2002 Sam Raimi chose to have his Spider-Man draw organic canvases from his wrist as part of his mutation. With the Spider-Man: No Path Home Trailer breaking records to become the most watched trailer of all time, it’s no surprise that fans are pondering all the implications of the Spider Man multiverse coming together.
Although it is not yet officially confirmed, there are many rumors that Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire will appear in Spider-Man: No Path Home reprising their roles as previous iterations of Spider-Man. In fact, some are theorizing that Doc Ock is actually talking to Spider-Man about Maguire in the trailer. If Spider-Man and Doctor Strange’s multiverse folding spell has gone wrong with those three Spideys in the same room, there will certainly be an opportunity to compare and contrast.
A new video, which the TikTok user cameronsilas recently posted on their feed, does just that. Using the “oh my god what is this?“same audio, cameronsilas points out one of the Tobey Maguire Spider Man the film’s biggest divergences from Marvel mythology: its web shooters. Representing Garfield and Holland’s Spideys reacting to Maguire’s organic web shooters, this video really highlights how crass this concept is in the universe.
Raimi’s decision to lean more into his B-movie background with that particular body horror detail (and Marvel’s quick reversal later Spider Man movies) has long been a source of conversation among Marvel fans, but this TikTok is perhaps even more prescient than anyone thinks. If there is is a joke on web-shooters in Spider-Man: No Path Home, which is entirely possible given the MCU’s sense of humor, the writers can also draw inspiration from Holland’s previous statements about Garfield’s Spider-Man Web shooters. Once upon a time he described them, saying that they are “so small and so compact it didn’t really make sense to me. “
If Garfield’s Spider-Man gets into a web shooter joke, he just might find himself in Holland’s sights. There is certainly a well of material to be mined only from shooters on the web, not to mention the myriad of other differences between the Spider-Men of yore. Time will tell exactly how this plays out, but Marvel better keep an eye on the internet before anything else incredible. Spider Man jokes come out right under their noses.
