Spider-Man: No Way Home was probably the best crossover movie event to ever hit the theaters as the movie was able to get Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire to reprise their roles as Spider-Man. No Spider-Man live action movie has ever had three generations of Spider-Men on-screen before, and was the perfect celebration of Stan Lee’s creation.

No Way Homeis the final movie in Holland’s first trilogy and allows the previous Spider-Men a redemption arc for their characters. Holland carried the movie as his character dealt with some heavy losses and showing that he may be the best Spider-Man audiences will ever see.

A family vacation to Thailand quickly turns into a disaster as a tsunami tears apart the hotel they are staying in, leaving everyone alone without aid. The Impossible is based on a true story and is the first feature film Holland was involved in. The film is extremely intense to watch as this family fights to get back together. It features amazing performances by Holland, Naomi Watts, and Ewan McGregor that make it hard to look away. Game Rant describes Holland’s pleas and cries as incredible and may be one of the greatest children performances ever to hit the big screen.

1 Spider-Man: Homecoming

Holland’s first solo movie as the lead and the one that shot him to fame is Spider-Man: Homecoming. The retelling of Spider-Man doesn’t show how Peter gets his powers, but instead illustrates how he deals with having powers and being a teenager. Holland’s performance is a lighter touch to the neighborhood’s friendliest superhero than audiences have seen before. Homecoming really set the tone for how Holland’s Spider-Man would be set up. Critics praise his performance and call his movies the best Marvel has produced.
