Spider-Man: No Way Home united three generations of live-action Peter Parkers. After a calendar year of connecting the dots, Hollywood's worst kept secret made its way to the big screen, sending theaters into a frenzy. Even though all three actors were portraying the same character, audiences worldwide marveled at Tom Holland, Andrew Garfield, and Tobey Maguire's unique takes on Peter Parker sharing scenes together.

Each actor's journey to becoming the web-slinger had its own special flavor. Maguire went through a lengthy audition process, Garfield read Peter Parker comics since childhood, and Holland transformed himself into an agile acrobat to ensure he could perform as many Spidey stunts as possible.

While each man embodied the character in their own ways, one of the three benefitted from an enhancement.

Spider-Man's Gluteus Upgrade

With glute power comes glute responsibility.

Speaking on Late Night with Seth MeyersSpider-Man: No Way Home star Tom Holland revealed "one" of the three Peter Parkers got a butt upgrade within their Spider suit.

"I'll give you a spoiler and I'm not going to tell who, but one of us has a fake ass in their suit. You can figure that out for yourselves."

Holland recalled being in awe of his mystery co-star's leg day gains, but had to remind himself it was a prosthetic.

"I remember being on set and being like, 'Wow! Oh, hang on a minute. That's not real.'"

Which Peter Parker Skips Leg Day?

Marvel Studios' workout regimens are no joke, but they are largely focused on the upper body.

From Chris Evans' shield-covering shoulders to Paul Rudd's Ant-Man abs, just about every Marvel man has undergone an impressive physical transformation to ensure their comic character's cartoon muscles come across as big in live-action.

On both the page and the screen, Spider-Man has always been a slimmer hero, but his spandex is always skin-tight. Marvel suits can look awkward when they don't perfectly mold to their actors' bodies, as evident by the digital touch-ups needed for Anthony Mackie's Captain America threads. Regardless of whether it was Maguire or Garfield needing this butt boost, it was likely done to ensure they completely filled out their Spidey suit.

For now, the cheeks remain cryptic.

Spider-Man: No Way Home will be released on home media on March 22.
