- The winner with 65% of the votes was Tobey Maguire. He was the first actor to play the wallcrawler in a theatrical film. He appeared in three films and was going to appear in a fourth before his series was cancelled. His original Spider-Man film, along with the first X-Men film, were the start of the modern era of superhero films. Also, his second film is still considered one of the greatest superhero movies ever made. Spider-Man: The New Animated Series was designed as a follow-up to his first film. In addition, Into the Spider-Verse made numerous references to his three films.
- Tied for second with 15% were the other two live-action actors Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland. Garfield followed up Maguire in the two The Amazing Spider-Man films. Though they received mixed reviews, he was generally praised for his acting. Holland is the current Spider-Man actor appearing the Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures Entertainment films set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He has been highly praised for his work and did discuss appearing in Into the Spider-Verse with directors Christopher Miller and Phil Lord.
- Coming in third with 5% is Tom Hardy as Venom. Though his film was a bomb with critics it was a hit with fans and Hardy was praised for his dual role as Eddie Brock and the symbiote. The Venom film's post-credit scene did indicate that his film does take place in the same multiverse.
- Getting no votes were Willem Dafoe, Bruce Campbell, Alfred Molina, Thomas Haden Church, Rhys Ifan, and Michael Keaton. Dafoe was Green Goblin in the three Maguire films.
