In December Marvel Studios released a movie that would seemingly disrupt the world. This day marked the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, the eighth film in the Spider-Man live-action series. Sony reported that “in less than a week in theaters, the Marvel Cinematic Universe flick topped $751.3 million worldwide, making it the third-highest-grossing film of 2021.”

The Spider-Man (2002), Spider-Man 2 (2004), and Spider-Man 3 (2007) being the first three films, to star Toby McGuire as Spider-Man. The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) and the Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) star Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man. Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) star Tom Holland as Spider-Man.

Now, for those who are completely confused about the whole series, you might be wondering why I’m telling you this. That reason is because: what struck the world with the newly released one, is that it brought all of these actors into the same place at the same time.

Of course, I’m not spoiling anything at all, this is nothing you wouldn’t know just from looking at a cover of the film or reading a description. However, I can’t say everything, so I’ll refrain from going too in-depth about the movie. The trailers were what initially brought up a spark around the movie.

Many people are into Marvel movies, especially the Spider-Man ones, myself included. But seeing these three fantastic actors who all played the same role joining together is what really made it exciting. This sparked up lots of conversations about who is “the better Spider-Man”….personally I think it’s Andrew Garfield. Lots of these conversations were taken to popular social media app, TikTok. Tons of videos were created about the movie and the characters, all accumulating comments of people arguing over who they thought to be the best.

At the end of the day, we all love Spider-Man, we all have our opinions, and it’s honestly just amazing that a movie series could bring about that much attention an hype. Maybe we’ll possibly get more from these three actors together in the future?
