feel the excitement in the spring air. Back in 2003 when “Spider-Man
2” was announced fans feared Maguire was going to have
to bow out due to some back issues resulting from his “Seabiscuit”
yoga and reaching inside to his inner-spidey strength Maguire
was able to re-enter his red and blues tighties.
the original cast members are returning for the final installment
of the trilogy. And to up the ante, this time around Peter Parker
(aka Spider-Man aka Maguire) is facing three arch enemies, New
Goblin, Sandman and Venom.

is relationship drama on their horizon.
And Maguire and Dunst have proven to pack a powerful sting as
the movie’s couple. In fact the duo won “Best Kiss”
at The MTV Movie Awards in 2003 for their now infamous upside-down
pouring rain half-masked kiss in the first Spider-Man (2002).
comic book tableau influenced lip-lock was also the subject
of a gazillion parodies and became something of a pop culture
In a more
serious category Maguire also won MTV’s Best Male Performance
Award that year.“Spider-Man
2” (2004) was another box-office sensation. The special
effects were groundbreaking and the film won the 2005 Visual
Effects Academy Award.
is pleased with all the success Spider-Man has brought him.
But his private life is truly where his heart is.
he and his fiancée, Jennifer Meyer became parents of
a girl they named Ruby Sweetheart.
over fatherhood he said, “It’s definitely amazing.
I love being a dad and having a daughter. It’s like everybody
says. All the cliché’s are true.”
was it like coming back for the third time?
TM: I love
it. I love working with the cast and the crew and especially
with Sam [Raimi – Director]. I really felt like in this
movie it was definitely the continuing story of Peter Parker
and the other characters.
is film’s surprise I am hearing about?TM:
We were exploring new territory for the character. It’s
a new side to Peter Parker and something I think is kind of
unexpected to see Peter Parker behave in some of the ways he
behaves. He’s darker.
So were the darker Spidey scenes hard? Raimi has said he had
a hard time with it.
TM: I probably
had the most fun doing those scenes. I have heard Sam say that
before, I’m not quiet sure that I’ve ever believed
him though. I think he’s attracted to it and repulsed
at the same time. I also I think we both get a little pleasure
of seeing Peter like that.
Q: Any concern
with being haunted by this role?
not really concerned about it, as long as I have other opportunities
to make other types of movies.
is something you do in real life that is thrilling?
TM: I like
to be very active. I can’t say there is anything that
quite compares to swinging around like Spider-Man does. Ilike
to ride bikes and run and scuba dive. I would consider skydiving,
but now my fiancé is like ‘You are not sky diving.’
And it would be a shame if something happened and I missed my
daughter’s life. That would be a drag.
has been your weirdest encounter with a Spider-Man fan?
y’know. I guess I’ve had some strange experiences.
I can’t think of anything. I think I just try to block
them out after they happen. I don’t remember them. I did
have an interview the other day where a guy was wearing Spider-Man
tights which I thought was a bit bizarre.
you ever been to a party in your suit?
TM: I actually,
don’t’ have a suit. I have had many offers to show
up for kids’ parties.
Q: Is there
a yet-to-be made wacky comedy starring Tobey Maguire?
TM: I don’t
know. I want to work in all kinds of movies, so I’d love
to do a good comedy.:
How do you feel about spiders?
fine with spiders. I respect their place in the world. I don’t
kill spiders. I saw a huge spider in my house last night and
just theft it there. But, Jen, my fiancé, says said I
needed to get it outside because of the baby. I’ve got
to escort the spiders outside now.
Q: The film’s
actors all signed on for three movies. Now the big question
is will you come back for another few Spider-Mans?
if there was a great story there and there was something interesting
for Peter Parker to do like a storyline that I loved for Peter
parker and Sam was involved and the right cast was in place,
at that point I would consider it.
