Not a big Spider-Man movie update but an update none the less. It appears Sony Pictures and director Marc Webb are close to picking the actor that will play Peter Parker in the new Spider-Man reboot. This past Friday, studio decision-makers viewed the screen test of actors that are supposedly in contention to play the next friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. Deadline lists the actors who have tested and are actively being considered. Jamie Bell (Jumper), Anton Yelchin (Terminator Salvation), Aaron Johnson (Kick-Ass), Andrew Garfield (The Social Network), Alden Ehrenreich (Tetro)Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince) Michael Angerano (Lords of Dogtown). and Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson & The Olympians). As of right now they have still yet to make a decision. Though, the studio wants to make one as soon soon as production is gearing up to start at the end of the year.
I have a feeling the new Spider-Man will be either Aaron Johnson or Logan Lerman (who keeps popping up on the rumor mill).Why? Because I think all the other actors are too weird looking to play a young Peter Parker. Oh, in case you forgot Sony is rebooting the film as teen melodrama with super villains (GAY!). Anyway, regardless of my proposed foresight I’m sure Ryan Seacrest will be letting us know who the next Spider-Man is sometime soon.
