Spider-Man actor Tobey Maguire is not the tallest actor to play the comic book character in a movie. He has a height of 5 feet 8 inches which is approximately 1.727 meters or 172.72 centimeters.
Other than Tobey Maguire, other actors who have played Spider-Man include Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland. Spider-Man: No Way Home gave Marvel Cinematic Universe fans the opportunity to see all three actors in the same movie and it also gave room for fans to make comparisons about certain aspects of the actors’ abilities and their physical features such as their height.
Tobey Maguire’s Height is Just an Inch Shorter Than the Average American Male
Tobey Maguire is approximately 5 feet 8 inches tall. Some reliable sources have reported that he is actually 5 feet 7 and three-quarters inches tall which is just shy of his projected official height of 5 feet 8 inches. Regardless of the slight difference, Maguire is still an inch shorter than the average American male whose height stands at 5 feet 9 inches tall.
Tobey Maguire’s height is also very inferior to the heights of other actors in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with most of the actors standing at 6 feet or more. However, his 5 feet 8 inches frame compares a bit more favorably to those of the actors like Andrew Garfield who have also both played the role of Spider-Man.
Tobey Maguire’s Height is Similar to Those of Other ‘Spider-Man’ Actors
The spider is a relatively small creature, so it makes a lot of sense for the actors cast in the role of the insect’s human alter-egos to be equally diminutive in nature. As earlier mentioned, Tobey Maguire is just as tall as or slightly shorter than his co-spidey stars. Let’s explore just how much taller or how much shorter than he actually is when compared to someone like Tom Holland or Andrew Garfield.
How Tall is Tobey Maguire Compared to Tom Holland?
Tom Holland is the latest actor to be cast in the iconic role of the MCU superhero known as Spider-Man and it would also appear that his portrayal of the character has become the most popular representation of the web-slinging superhero. However, when compared to the three “spideys” that appeared in Spider-Man: No Way Home, Tom Holland appears to be the shortest.
His official height is represented as 5 feet 7 inches, but in reality, he is actually 5 feet 7 and a half inches tall. He has chosen to be represented as 5 feet 7 inches tall obviously resisting the urge to round up his height figures in the same manner as Tobey Maguire.
In all honesty, the height difference between Tobey Maguire and Holland is not really up to an inch, but that is exactly the way it seems with the way both actors have chosen to officially present their height figures.
As previously mentioned, Holland is the third actor to play the role of Spider-Man and he only got the opportunity to do so when Sony Studios made the decision to reboot The Amazing Spider-Man. Since then, he has made the role his own after early struggles to make it a successful one.
Andrew Garfield is the Tallest of All Three Spider-Man Actors
Tobey Maguire is at least three inches shorter than Andrew Garfield. Officially, the first The Amazing Spider-Man actor stands at 5 feet 10 inches tall. Unofficially though, certain sources believe him to be at least half an inch taller than his officially represented height.
Even without that extra half inch, Andrew Garfield still towers over Holland and Maguire by at least a couple of inches, making him the tallest of the three MCU web-slinging superheroes featured in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Andrew Garfield’s role as Spider-Man came in Sony’s 2012 The Amazing Spider-Man, followed by its sequel which was released in 2014. The movie, which was supposed to present the superhero in a modern light when compared to Maguire’s early 2000s interpretation, failed to live up. This disappointment forced Sony to reboot the movie and cast Tom Holland in Garfield’s place sometime later.
Tobey Maguire’s Height Compared to Neil Patrick Harris’ Height
Neil Patrick Harris is more than three inches taller than Tobey Maguire and stands at a relatively imposing 5 feet 11½ inches tall. Some sources prefer to round off the figure to an even 6 feet but whichever figure you want to go with, it means that when brought into the equation, the How I Met Your Mother alum is the tallest of all the actors ever to play the role of Spider-Man.
Best recognized for his rousing performance as Barney in the popular TV series titled How I Met Your Mother, Neil Patrick Harris was the voice behind the Spider-Man character in MTV’s Spider-Man: the New Animated Series. The series aired in 2003 and the actor returned to voice The superhero in the 2010 video game Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions.
How Tall is Tobey Maguire Compared to Drake Bell in Reality?
Another Spider-Man actor whose height is sometimes compared to Tobey’s is Drake Bell. The former Nickelodeon star’s height is similar to Tobey’s and Tom’s. In fact, his height of 5 feet 7½ inches is exactly similar to Tom’s. It however makes him a quarter of inches shorter than Tobey Maguire. However, like Tobey he has officially rounded off his height to 5 feet 8 inches and this figure means he is exactly as tall as Tobey Maguire.
Bell voiced the superhero character in the 2012 animated movie titled Ultimate Spider-Man before returning to reprise his role in The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes (2012), Avengers Assemble (2013) and Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. (2013).
