Top Ten People Who Have Portrayed Spider-Man

Spider-Man has always been one of my favorite superheroes since I was a kid, and many have portrayed him in both live action and voice acting. These are simply the best ones.

The Top Ten

1 Tobey Maguire Tobey Maguire

Better Peter Parker performance? Check. Better Spider-Man performance then Andrew? Double check! He is a lot more accurate portrayal of the character then Andrew.

Andrew Garfield made Spider-Man a hipster! He is far to good looking to be Spider-Man. Tobey actually looked like a nerd, give the guy and Oscar.

The only reason why I have a crush on this due is because he portrayed Spider-Man.

Best spider man

2 Andrew Garfield Andrew Garfield Andrew Russell Garfield is a British-American actor. Born in Los Angeles, California and raised in Epsom, Surrey, Garfield began his career on the UK stage and in television productions.

I think to say Andrew doesn't capture Spider-Man's more awkward moments is completely incorrect, Complete lack of paying attention, clearly they don't observe his awkward interactions with Gwen on a frequent basis, as well as his random awkward interactions with the people of New York and his awkward moments with Aunt May, It's especially prevalent in the second movie, Granted, He does show the more sassy and confident aspects, but he also displays more of what makes Peter Parker who he is, Genius level intellect and acceptance of his responsibility as Spider-Man, And I feel like this is something that is seriously lost on people who didn't pay attention.

Andrew Garfield is a way better Spider-Man than Tobey Maguire. He is both incredibly funny and smart, two elements that were hugely lacking in the older Spider-Man trilogy. Sure he had a few jokes, but not nearly as many as Spider-Man should. They said that he was smart, but we never really got to see much of it. He was a nerd, sure, but not a genius. Andrew Garfield perfectly captures all of the elements that made Spider-Man great. You really see thes mart side of him, and he is perfectly sassy the way a Spider-Man should act.

Andrew Garfield deserves number 1 and you all know it! Tobey Maguire and Holland are both emotionless husks of the character known as Spiderman, Andrew is by FAR the best actor, most natural and organic acting, closest resemblence to Parker and Spiderman AND the most emotional and heartfelt of the 3. People only say Maguire wins because he is the original and people say the original always wins, regardless of if they are good or bad, which is pretty stupid. As for Holland, I can't see what people see in him personally.

A much better spider-man than Tobey, manly because he's spider-man side is good but he's Peter Parker side isn't

3 Tom Holland Tom Holland Thomas Stanley "Tom" Holland is an English actor and dancer. Holland is known for playing Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the title role in Billy Elliot the Musical at the Victoria Palace Theatre, London, and for starring in the 2012 film The Impossible.

This guy needs to be number one in my opinion. He balances out everything that made Spider-Man great, his humor and innocence make him easily more likable, relatable, and realistic. Tobey just seemed too old and was better as Peter than Spider-Man, even if he was absolutely amazing. Andrew just couldn't pull off Peter, despite perfecting Spider-Man. Tom mixes both excellently and does it better than both. PLEASE MAKE HIM NUMBER ONE.

"Hey everyone" that's all I needed

Better than Andrew Garfield! Put him on number two. Or better yet...number 1.

Perfectly captured the character

4 Josh Keaton

Everything about 'The Spectacular Spider-Man' was, genuinely, spectacular. That included the voice work of Josh Keaton. He deserves to be the highest ranking animated Spider-Man on the list. - BKAllmighty

He is the definite voice for Spider-Man. The reason the top 3 are from movies is due to popularity and it's a shame this and some of the ones below get overlooked simply for being voice actors. Josh Keaton is to Spider-Man what Kevin Conroy is to Batman.

Come on! He's way better than Andrew Garfield - 445956

5 Christopher Daniel Barnes

He had the best comedic timing and one-liners out of everyone

His voice is pitch perfect, he should be second place.

He should be at 2nd place.

6 Neil Patrick Harris Neil Patrick Harris
7 Drake Bell Drake Bell

Drake Bell is a fantastic Peter Parker as he is Spider-Man. He knows the exact tone to use when he is reminiscing about previous events of superhero-ing, when he is excited about other heroes teaming up with him, and a lot other elements. I'd say he's on the level as the actors Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire, and his dedication to this role for more than three seasons of Ultimate Spider-Man is also very good to know, because it at least shows that he enjoys playing this character.

His voice is well suited for the role, but 'Ultimate Spider-Man', as a whole, is very much lacking in a lot of departments. - BKAllmighty
