Currently there are two big debates going on among Spider-Man movie fans. First: will the character in the third reboot be Peter Parker or Miles Morales? Second, how old will the actor be? The answer to that second question has been widely reported as “younger than previous versions” and now a report of a secret audition seems to confirm that. Along the way, it likely answers the first question, too.
Mateus Ward, a 16-year-old currently seen on the TNT show Murder in the First, reportedly did an audition for the role of Spider-Man. Read more about the Spider-Man auditions below. Read More »

As you’ve no doubt heard by now, Sony’s on the hunt for a new Spider-Man to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And since the last round of Spider-Man casting was just a few years ago, some fans have wondered if some of the guys who didn’t make the cut the last time around could have better luck this time.
Now a couple of them have gone on the record to respond. Josh Hutcherson says “of course” he’d consider playing Spidey, if only anyone would ask him, while Donald Glover plays coy about his odds. Read the Spider-Man Donald Glover and Josh Hutcherson comments after the jump. Read More »

Last week’s biggest news, and frankly the biggest news of 2015 so far, was that Spider-Man is coming back to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We’ll see him in at least one Marvel movie (probably Captain America: Civil War) before a 2017 Sony reboot that ties in to the MCU. All week fans were debating what this meant for superhero movies, who should play the role, and what it might look like.
That last question has now kind of been answered thanks to ScreenCrush. They took footage from Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and carefully edited it with The Avengers. The result is a glimpse of what The Avengers might have looked like if Spider-Man was involved. Watch the Spider-Man Avengers below. Read More »

Minutes ago, we published our list of 15 actors who should play the new Spider-Man. It’s not an easy list to make because few know exactly how old Sony wants the character to be or whether or not he’ll be Peter Parker.
Well, scratch that. We do sort of know. Various news stories have come out saying Sony wants Spider-Man to be in high school, which pretty much crosses off any actor over 25. Now, another report says the first two names to emerge as contenders are names we mentioned on our list: Dylan O’Brien and Logan Lerman, both 23 and white. That pretty much cements the fact it’ll be Peter Parker.
Below, read more about the new Spider-Man actors, as well as news that Andrew Garfield may have been contacted about possible continuing the role. Read More »
