I feel like I should be writing a book about why Raimi’s efforts at making Spider-Man movies THE BEST THEY COULD POSSIBLY BE is a testament to movie-making as a whole. Yes, they’re just superhero movies, but Peter Parker as portrayed by Tobey Maguire is such a driving force behind these movies and why they’re pretty great. This gifset, for example, shows that Peter isn’t just a nerd, but someone who wants others to learn. He’s not just the potential hero, but also a savior of knowledge. In another life, he’d probably win a Nobel Peace Prize… or a dozen.
