How Spider-Man 3 Ended Tobey Maguire’s Career
Over a decade ago, Tobey Maguire was the apple of the eye of every Hollywood studio. Fresh off the success of Sony’s Spider-Man franchise, Tobey Maguire was supposed to rule Hollywood, take the place that is now filled by actors like Brad pitt and Tom Cruise. But thanks to the stellarly lackluster Spider-Man 3, Tobey Maguire was an actor whose career waned and his legacy was lost to time. Before Spider-Man No Way Home brought him back for one last ride, Tobey Maguire’s career was essentially reduced to a shadow of its former self. Even his most ardent and loyal fans from back in those days had forgotten about him.
Why did the world forget the acting behemoth that is Tobey Maguire. Back in the early 2000’s, maybe not even Tom Cruise had achieved the level of success Maguire had. By the late 2000’s, Maguire had managed to squander away everything. And it is all thanks to Spider-Man 3.
