2. Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield)
Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker was very much like the comic book version. He was self deprecating on a level that we haven’t seen much of from the other live-action versions. Seeing how he differed from his alternate selves in Spider-Man: No Way Home actually encouraged this. The Amazing Spider-Man franchise’s hero didn’t have the gadgets, girlfriend, or even the villains that the other Peters had. This made him feel inferior – so much so that he even called himself lame.
There was a lot to love about the return of Andrew Garfield’s Peter, but the one part fans seem to hold onto is how he changed after Gwen died. He said that he stopped pulling his punches. Some might make the assumption that he meant he started killing people. However, what if that isn’t it? He could have just turned into a version of Spider-Man post Marvel Civil War in the comics. That Spider-Man put on the black costume and used his fear and strength to intimidate and finish his enemies. The fans deserve to see this Andrew Garfield in a Spider-Man movie.
Regardless of whether we do or don’t, it was great to see Garfield return as Peter.
1. Spider-Man (Tom Holland)
And now we come to Tom Holland. The Peter Parker who both caused and solved the problems in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
This was the most classic Spider-Man story we’ve seen in a movie so far. Peter let his love for his loved ones almost ruin the lives of billions of people. And just like he would in a Marvel Comics series, he sacrificed everything he loved to save the day.
The biggest takeaway from this journey was Tom Holland’s Peter becoming a leader. Despite the other two Spideys being more experienced, the MCU Peter knew how to lead them. This may have been his shining moment in the MCU and a glimpse into the future. Some fans believe that he’ll be the next leader of the Avengers, and No Way Home certainly made a good case for why he could be.
