Did you know that Tobey Maguire almost didn’t do Spider-Man 2? Blame his persistent back ailment.

In an interview to Newsweek, the 28-year-old actor admits, “I looked at the stunts I was going to have to do for Spider-Man 2, which were going to be three times as difficult as the stunts on the first movie [Spider-Man], and it became a little overwhelming.”

Based on the much loved comic book superhero created by Marvel executive Stan Lee and company character designer Steve Ditko, the second film in the Spider-Man series is the toast of Hollywood this summer.

Like its 2002 predecessor, which garnered a mind-boggling $820 million across the globe, Spider-Man 2, too, is a hot proposition at the box office.

Spider-Man 2 premiered at the Mann Village Theatre in Westwood, Los Angeles, California.
