Proof Tobey Maguire Was Creepy as Peter Parker in ‘Spider-Man’

I’ve never liked the casting of Tobey Maguire in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man films. Not only does he come off as ultra geeky, but there’s not a shred of “hip” or “cool” out of his performance. Instead, I found him creepy, especially during that bizarre diatribe in the hospital when Peter Parker explains what he told Spider-Man he thinks of Mary Jane (Kirsten Dunst). While the films are a great deal of fun (especially the first two), and probably the main catalyst behind this golden age of superhero movies, it’s found itself already a bit dated. So, it’s sort of fun to look back and question the decisions that were once right, and are now so clearly wrong.

In this fan-edit, what was once a cute coming-of-age drama has been spun into a horror film where Parker is the stalker that he always appeared to be. Aunt May is onto him…
