Marvel entertainment’s Spider-Man: No Way Home is arguably the most anticipated Marvel film in 2021. As such, it has inspired an inconceivable amount of content covering theories about the film, rumours about what to expect to see in the film and fan theories about where the entertainment company could take their sprawling series next.

Among these rumours and fan theories was an (accurate) assumption that the film may feature the two actors who held the Spider-Man mantle prior to Tom Holland bringing his own version of Peter Parker to life.

Fans all over the world even went in search of Spider-Man (2002), Spider-Man 2 (2004) and Spider-Man 3 (2007) starring Tobey Magurire, as well as The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) starring Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, to prepare for No Way Home just in case they feature in it.

Out of curiosity, streaming service Just Watch compiled some data in order to determine which Peter Parker is the most popular Peter Parker.

According to their data, the Tom Holland collection of Spider-Man films (Homecoming and Far From Home) were 9.2 times more popular than Andrew Garfield’s, and 3.1 times more popular than Tobey Maguire’s.

The film also stars major villains from the films that Maguire and Garfield led, hence the speculation that they would feature in the latest installment in the franchise.

Eager Marvel fans around the world who have not yet seen the film have been working hard to avoid online “spoilers” revealing what might happen in the film before they have had the chance to experience it for themselves.

While it is not immediately obvious which Spider-Man is the most popular amongst fans of the superhero, they are all excited to experience them all in one film for the first time in history.

To have all three actors in one film is quite the coup, as Disney battled for years to get the rights to show these characters as they were from Sony.
