Delayed film debut The Actors Studio-trained Eli Wallach was to have made his film debut in Fred Zinnemann's Academy Award-winning 1953 blockbuster From Here to Eternity.

With the announcement in February that Spider-Man is coming to the Marvel universe, we also knew one thing: the reign of Andrew Garfield as Spidey is effectively over. But with one door closed, another opens for a new generation of superheroes, and The Wrap has reported that several actors are on the shortlist to play the next Spider-Man. There are no test offers out to any of these potential stars yet, but here are the young men who may be your next friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, starting in 2016's Captain America: Civil War. »
Since Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios officially announced that Spider-Man would become a shared property between the two studios, allowing him to enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the internet has been a buzz with who would play the next incarnation of Peter Parker.
With Andrew Garfield aging out of the role and Sony looking to reboot the franchise yet again, a new crop of young up-and-comers have been bandied about to take on the iconic superhero in a movie scheduled to hit theatres in July 2017. The shortlist includes some familiar names like Asa Butterfield and Tom Holland, and some not-so-familiar young actors.
With Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods) pegged to write and direct the upcoming Spidey film (and Sinister Six), here’s the top candidates in the running according to studio sources: »

It was recently reported that Sony Pictures teamed up with Marvel on the future of the Spider-Man franchise. The superhero will next appear in "Captain America 3: Civil War" on May 6th, 2016 and then get his own solo film on July 28th, 2017. Sony and Marvel have no interest in bringing back Andrew Garfield and have been discussing making Peter Parker a teenager. And now that the studios have about 2-3 weeks left before they have to pick an actor to play the role, we get a list of who is being considered. Thanks to The Wrap, we know that the contenders are Nat Wolff (The Fault in Our Stars), Asa Butterfield (Ender's Game, Hugo), Tom Holland (In the Heart of the Sea), Timothee Chalamat (Interstellar) and Liam James (The Way Way Back). Meanwhile, Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) remains the frontrunner to direct the new "Spider-Man" movie. »
It looks like Marvel Studios and Sony have narrowed their search for Spider-Man down to five actors, with The Wrap reporting that Timothee Chamalet (Interstellar), Nat Wolff (Paper Towns), Tom Holland (In the Heart of the Sea), Liam James (The Way Way Back) and Asa Butterfield (Hugo) are all on the shortlist for the coveted role.
The site reports that Sony is set to make test offers to several of the young stars and is expected to make its decision on Andrew Garfield’s successor in the next two to three weeks. The wall-crawler will make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in next year’s Captain America: Civil War, with the character’s scenes set to be shot in June, and will follow this up in July 2017 with a solo movie, which Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) is slated to direct.

Everyone’s favourite web-slinger has been rebooted onscreen more times than a prison football. Yet after two movie franchises, an upcoming appearance in Captain America: Civil War and another reimagining in the works (supposedly under director Drew Goddard), Sony aren’t quite done with creating new escapades for Spider-man. They’ve just announced an animated instalment that will plough its own furrow away from the established canon(s).
CinemaCon was the venue for the project to be announced, and it’s clear this won’t be just another hastily-drawn spin-off going straight to DVD. The studio have hired The Lego Movie’s Phil Lord and Chris Miller to devise, produce and hopefully direct the new spectacular. No word on voice casting, though presumably some big names will be heading to Marvel’s recording booth.

We're edging ever closer to learning who the new big screen Spider-Man is going to be, ahead of the character joining the Marvel cinematic universe in Captain America: Civil War (which he's almost certain to do).
There's been no shortage of clues so far, with Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige confirming that the studio is looking for a teenager this time around. He's also revealed that it won't be an origin story we get when Spider-Man appears in his next standalone film, in 2017.
The Wrap now reckons that it has Sony and Marvel's shortlist of five actors for the role. And here are the apparent candidates to be the new Spider-Man.
It seems Collider's Steve Weintraub was spot on when he reported that Marvel and Sony were close to settling on a new Spider-Man to replace Andrew Garfield in the McU, and The Wrap has now revealed the names on the shortlist. According to them, Nat Wolff (The Fault In Our Stars), Asa Butterfield (Hugo, Ender's Game), Tom Holland (The Impossible), Timothee Chalamet (Interstellar) and Liam James (The Way Way Back) are all in the running to land the coveted role. The site adds that none of these young actors have actually tested yet, but that they are "strong contenders who are definitely in the mix as of right now". It has also been confirmed that the plan is to introduce Spidey in Captain America: Civil War, and the role will have to be cast by June when the actor will be needed on set. Apparently these aren't the only thesps in the running, »
While I'm still admittedly a little bummed that Andrew Garfield won't get another chance to play ol' web-head, I'm very excited that this new Spider-Man will actually be of an appropriate age to attend high school. Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield were both great, but not once did I believe they were high school students; maybe they got held back a lot. Yes I know, it's Hollywood and thirty year olds play teenagers all the time but I've always »

Been wondering where Andrew Garfield has been? Well, here's your answer: he's overseas on the set of his new movie. Andrew emerged in Taiwan last week, heading to the set of Silence, which is directed by Martin Scorsese. In the film, Andrew plays a Jesuit priest (who apparently has a lot of hair.) Andrew's busy schedule has kept him away from Emma Stone for the past few months and was credited as one of the reasons why the two are currently taking a break from their relationship. While Andrew has been staying focused on work, Emma has been enjoying a bit of time off after award season, even hitting up Disneyland with her brother before she gets back to the grind. »
Oh, hey Emma Stone! One of Hollywood's most famous (and favorite) redheads has been lying low recently, but resurfaced earlier today for the first time since the public found out about her shocking break with boyfriend Andrew Garfield (remember, it's not a breakup, and we refuse to call it that until it's official...which we hope is never). The 26-year-old was spotted taking a stroll in West Hollywood while grabbing a banana after finishing up an afternoon workout. Stone kept it cazh in an all-black outfit with a loose, white crop top over her gym clothes. Rumors of trouble in paradise for the fan-favorite couple didn't start making headlines until the last few weeks or so, but the »
Marvel's Spider-Man film will not be an origin story.
The studio's president Kevin Feige told CraveOnline that it is going to assume viewers already know the "specifics" of Peter Parker's story.
He said: "In Spider-Man's very specific case, where there have been two retellings of that origin in the last whatever it's been -  years - for us, we are going to take it for granted that people know that, and the specifics.
"It will not be an origin story, but with great power comes great responsibility. It is inherent to who his character is. But we want to reveal it in different ways and spend much more time focusing on this young high school kid in the McU dealing with his powers."
Feige also teased a different costume for the new Spider-Man, saying: "We've already designed the costume, which is »
The new Spider-Man won't be an origin story. And Marvel is hunting for a teenage Peter Parker this time around...
Production starts imminently on Marvel's Captain America: Civil War movie, which is set for release around this time next year. And that means it's not going to be too long before we find out who the next big screen Spider-Man is.
As you probably known, the Andrew Garfield reign as Spider-Man is over, with the character getting a fresh standalone movie in 2017, and officially joining the Marvel cinematic universe ahead of that. It's been rumoured for some time that we're going to see Spider-Man re-introduced in the next Captain America film, and that's why the casting of the role is believed to be imminent.
