Happy Birthday Tobey Maguire, aka Spider-Man!

It's been over seven years since he last appeared in the familiar red and blue outfit of a certain amazing wallcrawler superhero, but Hollywood star Tobey Maguire will always be remembered as the first big screen Spider-Man in Sam Raimi's trilogy of films, and today marks the actor's 41st birthday!

Starting out in the original 2002 Spider-Man film as the webslinging superhero, Maguire became a household name instantly when he took on the role of Peter Parker/ Spider-Man and starred alongside Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane Watson and James Franco as Harry Osborn. All three would reprise their roles in 2004 for Spider-Man 2 and finally for Spider-Man 3 in 2007, then Sony Pictures would reboot the franchise with 2012's "The Amazing Spider-Man" with Andrew Garfield taking over the main role. Now Spidey's joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the wallcrawler is now played by young British actor Tom Holland.

Despite being done playing Marvel's iconic superhero, Maguire's tenure as Spidey will always be remembered by a generation of fans who wanted to see the hero come to life... And he certainly delivered tenfold. Happy Birthday, Tobey Maguire!
