Spider-Man: Far From Home deep fake replaces Tom Holland with Tobey Maguire and were deeply unsettled

A creepy Spider-Man deep fake has replaced Tom Holland with Tobey Maguire and were well and truly unsettled.

Its like the real version of the Spider-Man pointing meme, and were a little disturbed by it.

After the Sony and Marvel drama kicked off, Spidey fans have been debating their favourite actor – however, this isnt quite how we expected it to manifest.

YouTuber Aldo Jones created the video, planting Tobeys face onto Toms body throughout the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer, and its all entirely too realistic.

While Tobey played the superhero from 2002 to 2007, Andrew Garfield took over the role from 2012 to 2014, with Tom coming on board for the Avengers movies in 2016.

Fans had mixed reactions to the video, with one demanding: Now do SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME but EVERYONE IS TOBEY MAGUIRE.

Instead, they reportedly suggested to keep their current deal, offering the studio five per cent of the first dollar grossing, with the studio declining.

Marvel president Kevin Feige was creative lead in the previous two Spider-Man films of the latest era, with 23-year-old Tom climbing into the superhero suit.

But unless a negotiation is reached, he will not have the same role in the two movies reportedly in the works.

Breaking his silence on the issue, after teasing fans with selfies alongside Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr, Tom vowed to make Spidey even cooler.

Promoting his new Pixar movie, Outward, at the event, he told the crowd: Listen, its been a crazy week, but I want you to know, I am grateful from the bottom of my heart.

And I love you 3000.
