As you now know, Spider-Man 4 and 5 are now fully underway, filming back-to-back with the original team. Now word of lead Tobey Maguire’s salary has come out, and even if you consider it’s for two movies, 50 million dollars is still huge. That and the fact he is guaranteed a special schedule to spend time with his daughter.
Maguire was willing to shoot Spider-Man 4 and 5 back-to-back over six months next year but insisted he should take early mornings and evenings off so he could play with his “favourite blonde”, Ruby Sweetheart, who is 22 months old.
In a strange turn of events, the late Steve McQueen’s (The Great Escape) wife Barbara was asked for a comment and basically called Maguire a pussy, saying she couldn’t imagine her husband demanding “family time”.
