Although a younger actor will now be replacing him as the superhero webslinger, comic book creator Stan says the title role should be Tobey’s and Tobey’s alone!

Can you imagine anyone else aside from Tobey Maguire playing wall-crawling superhero Spider-Man? Series director Sam Raimi can’t, nor can Spidey’s creator, Stan Lee!

“Tobey IS Peter Parker [Spider-Man’s human alias],” the 87-year-old Marvel Comics creator told exclusively at Activision’s E-3 concert at the Staples Center in LA June 14.

He added, “I love him and what he did for Spider-Man.”

Sam Raimi has echoed similar thoughts to us previously, saying, “I’m such a fan of Tobey’s. It’s hard for me to ever imagine anyone else in that role.”

Billy Elliot star Jamie Bell, The Kids Are All Right’s Josh Hutcherson and Kick Ass’ Aaron Johnson are currently all up for the role Tobey made his in all three Spidey films.
