Tobey Maguire, Willem Dafoe Set A NEW Guinness World Record With 'Spider-Man: No Way Home', Defeat Hugh Jackman And Patrick Stewart!
The latest instalment in the Spider-Man franchise has added much panache to the franchise. The third Spidey flick 'Spider-Man: No Way Home' bought three Spider-Men together -  Tobey Maguire from the original Spider-Man trilogy, Andrew Garfield from 'The Amazing Spider-Man' series, and Tom Holland from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Well, the expansion of the Marvel cinematic universe was quite a successful feat. 

It also brought supervillains from the past Spider-Man films. Alfred Molina, Willem Dafoe, Rhys Ifans, Jamie Foxx, and Thomas Haden Church portrayed the characters of Doctor Otto Octavious, Green Goblin, Lizard, Electro, and Sandman respectively.

Amid all the excitement around the film, fans might be delighted to know Tobey Maguire and Willem Dafoe have created the Guinness World Record for the 'Longest career as a live-action Marvel character'.


With 'No Way Home', the two actors have been portraying the characters of Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Norman Osborn for 19 years and 229 days. They defeated the previous record set by Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart, who portrayed the characters of Wolverine and Professor X, respectively,  for 16 years 232 days from 'X-Men' (2000) to 'Logan' (2017).

The Guinness World Record Website states, "The longest career as a live-action Marvel character is 19 years and 229 days, and was achieved by Tobey Maguire and Willem Dafoe (both USA) on 17 December 2021. Both actors, Tobey Maguire (Peter Parker, Spider-Man) and Willem Dafoe (Green Goblin), made their first appearance in 'Spider-Man' (2002) and their most recent appearance in 'Spider-Man - No Way' (2021)."


The sequel to 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' and 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' recently emerged as the highest grosser of 2021 and the sixth-highest grossing film of all time after 'Avatar', 'Avengers: Endgame', 'Titanic', 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' and 'Avengers: Infinity War'
