In the Sam Raimi Spider-Man film Trilogy (2002-2007), Peter Parker is played by Tobey Maguire. In the reboot film series created by Marc Webb (2012-2014), Peter is played by Andrew Garfield. Both actors and set of films became quite popular. Tom Holland first appeared as Spider-Man/Peter in the MCU in Captain America: Civil War and quickly gained the favor of Spidey fans.

Spider-Man Trilogy

The Amazing Spider-Man Series


Since it was announced that Spider-Man was finally going to appear in the MCU, thus ending the Amazing Spider-Man series and no more Garfield as Peter/Spidey. It had a mixed response, because many fans supported the idea of Spider-Man finally joining the MCU (it was practically accepted in fanon anyway), but enjoyed Garfield's acting and would prefer to have him continue (#SaveGarfield & #SaveAndrewGarfield is often used). Another criticism of the decision to recast was the fact that the series was just rebooted. Others feel that Marvel Studios can cast a better actor, since they had such great success with Thor, Steve Rogers, and Tony Stark. Moreso, however, many want the Spider-Man character to be recasted as a POC or the Miles Morales incarnation, in which Donald Glover is often fancasted. It has seen been announced that Tom Holland will appear as Spider-Man.

After Captain America: Civil War was released, fans immediately took to Tom Holland and his portray of Peter/Spider-Man in the film. Positive feedback on the character and actor continued for Spider-Man: Homecoming.

The pairings that appeared in the fandom, especially after his solo movie set in the MCU, are Peter/Tony, Peter/Michelle, Peter/Liz and Peter/Wade Wilson.


Peter Parker is featured in all of the Spider-Man cartoons[1], although the fandom for the cartoonverses are significantly smaller than the movieverses. The most popular ones are Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends, Spider-Man: The Animated Series, The Spectacular Spider-Man, and Ultimate Spider-Man.

Peter/MJ, Peter/Felicia, and Peter/Gwen are the most common cartoon related pairings with Peter. Peter/Deadpool also appears in nearly every universe.
