20 Book-To-Movie Characters That Were Cast All Wrong

Spider-Man has been through a lot. If you add up all the movies, he’s lost his Uncle Ben no fewer than three times, and that’s just family business. He survived Thanos, failed to rescue Emma Stone, and worst of all, he went through an emo phase. We didn’t hate Tobey McGuire‘s take on the web-slinging superhero when it came out. Those were different times, after all.  Now that we’ve got some comparisons though, it definitely falls short. We had a hard time remaining convinced when he got into character as the brainiac high schooler who happened to be best friends with snobby rich kid James Franco and hanging at William Dafoe‘s penthouse. We need a whole other article to talk about the third movie of the franchise and his time as Venom. Tobey lacked the high school look, the superhero look, and the top-dollar Marvel treatment, but hey, at least we got to see him say, “go web go.”
