Approved: Tobey Maguire Likes Tom Holland as Spider-Man

Ever since the first screening of the film, fans couldn’t get enough of Spider-Man played by Tom Holland in Captain America: Civil War even though he’s only in the movie for around 20 minutes. And since Holland isn’t the first guy to play the web slinger, the world has been waiting to see what the original wall crawler thought about it.

Yup, I’m talking about Tobey Maguire, the actor who portrayed Peter Parker/Spider-Man in Sam Rami’s 2002-2007 trilogy. Even though that series of movie’s didn’t end well amongst the critics, Maguire is still considered to be the best Spider-Man we’ve ever had. So it’s nice to see him commenting on the new Spidey. Here’s what he had to say in a recent Instagram post that included a fan video of him playing Parker watching the first Civil War trailer featuring the web head:

Haha seriously, who made this? @tomholland2013 good job! You are great as Spider-Man. Keep it up!

It’s good to know that Maguire approves of Holland and isn’t some kind of jerk who thinks he’s better than him but won’t admit to it. (Okay, sorry, I caught myself. Why the heck would Maguire ever be a jerk?) Now all we have to do is wait for Andrew Garfield to speak his thoughts, then we’ll all sleep at night…
