Spiderman Actor Pay
In first place as the most expensive Spider-man was Tobey Maguire, with the average budget for one of his films costing £150 million, and his average salary per film amounting to over £9 million.
Tobey, who played Spiderman from 2002-2007, stole the hearts of the nation and even became the highest-rated actor to play Spiderman on IMDb, with a rating of 7.3. Tobey’s highest-paying film was, of course, Spider-man 2, with earnings of £13.2 million.
Reports also revealed that at the peak of his career as Spiderman, he was also one of the highest-paid actors in the world, and in 2021 he now has a net worth of around £56.6 million.
In second place was Andrew Garfield, with a combined average budget and salary of £159 million. Andrew was also the lowest paid actor of the films, with total earnings for him amounting to only £1.1 million.
Coming in last place is Tom Holland, with combined average costs of £128 million. With the upcoming Spiderman release already smashing pre-sale ticket records, this could soon be set to change as he may see a hefty pay packet come if his salaries are decided against the film’s success. Tom Holland also takes top spot for having the best-performing Spider-Man movie, with Spider-Man: Far From Home being the only film in the franchise to earn over $1 billion (£850 million).
