And without a doubt, much of this mega success responds to the enormous expectation of seeing Tom Holland fighting evil alongside Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.
Seeing the three Spider-Man joining forces, each from different realities and times, and at the same time witnessing the return of the actors who brought the arachnid to life in previous sagas has been one of the greatest gifts that Marvel and Sony have been able to give them. to fans of the famous superhero currently played by Tom Holland. And the event is so great that there is even talk of possible future films with Maguire and Garfield.
The open ‘spiderverse’ in “Spider-Man: No Way Home” allows everything and opens the doors to any theory.
Meanwhile, we can only speculate about what the successful third film installment leaves us. And precisely, One of the issues that comes to light after the premiere of “Spider-Man: No Way Home” is the salaries that the actors received for being part of this mega premiere.
First, let’s take a look at what actors were paid to play Spider-Man in each of his sagas.
As detailed by Celebrity Net Worth on its official website, Tom Holland earned $250,000 for briefly appearing as “Spiderman in Captain America: Civil War.” He then earned $500,000 base salary for “Spider-Man: Homecoming” with his eventual paycheck topping $1.5 million with bonuses.
Afterward, he earned $3 million for his appearance in 2018’s “Avengers: Endgame.” And today, his standard base salary for a single movie appearance is $4.5 million.
A Variety report published on December 22 indicates that trAs the great success of the latest installment of Spider-Man, Holland’s salary could rise to 10 million.
“…Holland’s asking price should jump into the eight digits. Before ‘Spider-Man’, she was earning less than US$1 million for movie roles. Now, she could be earning $2 million to $5 million for independent movies and $5 million to $10 million for a leading role in some mainstream studio commercial film,” the aforementioned edition reads.
The same website points out that in 2002, Tobey Maguire earned a respectable $4 million for playing the arachnid superhero in “Spider-Man 1″ and in the sequels he earned considerably more: for “Spider-Man 2″ he negotiated a salary of 17.5 million dollars, plus five percent of the film’s box office gross. Then, for the final installment, “Spider-Man 3″, he got a slightly lower salary of $15 million, but with an even bigger share of the box office, 7.5 percent.
Garfield’s salary information dates back several years. Deadline posted this in their 2010 issue: “Garfield’s pay scale as Spider-Man is around $500,000 for the first movie, $1 million for the second, and $2 million for the third. All finalists were presented with those terms in a one-film, two-option deal.” However, there is no indication that he received anything for the third tape that never saw the light of day.
There is no confirmed information about how much Tobey Maguire charged to be part of “No Way Home”. But there has been talk of the conditions that he set to pose his character almost 20 years after his last film (2007).
In an interview with “The Hollywood Reporter”, Chris McKenna, screenwriter of “No Way Home”, said: “…Tobey wanted to be very minimalist… As writers, we ask ourselves, ‘Where are these characters in their lives when they come into the movie? Where’s Tobey?’ He’s now a 43-year-old guy… We wanted to be true to the characters in those movies. Really having conversations about how to specify where they are, without revealing too much…”
As for Garfield’s salary for his participation in Holland’s third film, it is said that he would have received $1 million for his 30-odd minutes on screen. Although it sounds little This return of the 38-year-old actor would have opened the doors for other Marvel and Sony projects.
On December 25, thousands of fans around the world mobilized on social networks to ask Sony Pictures, through the hashtag #MakeTASM3, that they want to see the actor in a third film of “The Amazing Spider-Man”. Time will tell if this request comes true or not.
