Speculation continues to swirl around the role of Spider-Man, now that the character is confirmed as being scheduled to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. No actor has yet been cast in the role, but there are certainly already a few fan favorites emerging. One of which is Freddie Highmore.
While promoting season three of Bates Motel, the actor spoke to IGN about fans touting his name as the next potential web-slinger.
“Obviously, I would love to be considered. That would be fantastic. I guess we’ll just have to see how things go.
“You always feel like you can identify with him. He’s that kind of guy at school who wasn’t perhaps in the really cool group, but who was extremely intelligent and managed to find confidence in being Spider-Man – in this other side to his life.”

With Cabin in the Woods’ Drew Goddard directing the first post-Garfield Spider-Man film, it’s time to hack our way through the web of blogosphere rumours regarding the superhero’s future
The internet has been abuzz this week with rumours about the fresh direction being taken by Sony and new partner Marvel on future Spider-Man films. It’s always difficult to know how far to trust “news” coming out of the blogosphere, in this case fanboy site Latino Review (which famously predicted not so long ago that Christian Bale would return as Batman). But with Us trades having confirmed the blog’s scoop that Cabin in the Woods’ Drew Goddard is in line to write and direct the first solo Spidey film of the post-Andrew Garfield era, it’s worth looking at some of the site’s other predictions.

Even though Marvel now has access to their most iconic superhero Spider-Man, we won't get to see a reboot of the character on the big screen until at least next summer, when Peter Parker is rumored to be appearing in Captain America: Civil War.

Who will succeed Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man? Sony Pictures Entertainment has yet to announce which actor will take over as the iconic Marvel Comics superhero. Regardless, the Internet has already narrowed down a list of possible replacements, with favorites including Ansel Elgort, Donald Glover, Logan Lerman, Dylan O'Brien and Brenton Thwaites. O'Brien, who stars in MTV's Teen Wolf, proved he has the ability to open a movie with 2014's The Maze Runner. Rumors are swirling that he's already been cast as Peter Parker, but as the actor tells BuzzFeed News, "Professionally, I haven't heard anything about it. I've only heard from, like, [rumors] online." So, no, his Spidey »
Australian media have reported that the production will shoot in one of three Australian states: Queensland, New South Wales or Victoria. Producer, Bill Mechanic told Variety that the destinations have not yet been pinned down.
“We are absolutely targeted to shoot in Australia, however we haven’t yet scouted locations so are unsure which states we’ll make use of. Most likely more than one of the three [states], but we haven’t even begun to narrow the process yet,” Mechanic said.
The film is based on the life of Desmond T. Doss, the first conscientious objector to win the Congressional Medal of Honor for saving dozens of soldiers during the Battle of Okinawa while serving as a medic. Andrew Garfield is set to portray Doss, who was a Seventh »

Are you still rubbed the wrong way by the winners of this year’s Oscars? Wish that if they have 10 nominations, they should realistically use them to nominate cool movies everyone has seen like Guardians of the Galaxy and The Fault in Our Stars, and if you’re not going to, why not just go back to 5?
That’s what the MTV Movie Awards are for, and surprisingly, they’ve made some choices that are making them look even more diverse and in touch with society than the Academy.
The movie of the year nominations are a healthy mix of blockbusters and critical darlings, with Oscar winner Birdman nowhere to be found (except for Best Female Performance by Emma Stone and Best Fight, between Michael Keaton and Edward Norton).

Nominations are in for the 2015 MTV Movie Awards, and leading the way overall was "The Fault in Our Stars," "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Neighbors" with seven mentions each. Little surprise, that, given the demographic, but at the same time, it's a relatively inspired (as far as it goes) mish-mash of consumer and prestige work across the board. "American Sniper," "Boyhood," "Selma" and "Whiplash" doubled up on their Best Picture fortunes from the Academy by landing in the Movie of the Year category. There they are joined by "Fault," "Gone Girl" and "Guardians of the Galaxy." Other Oscar nominees who found room include Bradley Cooper, Rosamund Pike (three nominations), J.K. Simmons, Emma Stone, Meryl Streep and Reese Witherspoon. "Whiplash," in particular, had a heartening showing. Miles Teller landed in the Best Male Performance category, and also picked up Best Wtf Moment and Best Musical Moment nods. And though it's no »

Only a couple hours after I ask if anyone expected films such as The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Transformers: Age of Extinction or Maleficent to receive Oscar nominations for Best Picture do we receive the 2015 MTV Movie Awards nominations wherein two of those films actually do get nominations along with the likes of Gone Girl and The Fault in Our Stars as the two other "Movie of the Year" nominees that didn't make the Academy's cut. Oscar Best Picture winner Birdman was not nominated for Movie of the Year, but Emma Stone did receive a nomination as did Edward Norton and Michael Keaton for Best Fight. When it comes to overall tallies, it's Guardians of the Galaxy, Neighbors and The Fault in Our Stars leading all nominees with seven each. The »

When it was confirmed that Andrew Garfield would not be reprising the role of Peter Parker in the now Sony and Marvel shared "Spider-Man" franchise, talk quickly turned to who might be his potential replacement.
Two names quickly rose to the fore - "Teen Wolf" and "The Maze Runner" star Dylan O'Brien, and "Percy Jackson" franchise topper Logan Lerman. Both are 23 years old, both have scored good notices for their work and both could play high school age. Speculation led to actual reports saying Sony was seriously considering both of them.
Recently speaking with Buzzfeed though, O'Brien has dismissed the reports as he's heard nothing about it himself:
"Professionally, I haven't heard anything about it. I've only heard from, like, [rumors] online. It feels so weird to say. It's so funny. My friends from New Jersey are calling me. They're like, what are you not telling me, dude?! Spider-Man?! It makes me feel bad because I'm, »

Don’t roll up that red carpet just yet. Awards season still has one more ceremony to get through: The 2015 MTV Movie Awards hosted by Amy Schumer.
The network’s annual ceremony typically honors a mix of award-bait films and fan favorites of the past year. And this year is no different with Oscar winners, Birdman and Whiplash, nominated alongside Guardians of the Galaxy and The Fault in Our Stars. The latter two actually garnered seven nominations each. The two films tied with Neighbors for the most potential wins.
Other standouts include Gone Girl, which earned a lot of attention for Rosamund Pike’s turn as a scorned housewife Amy Elliott, and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which is getting love for Jennifer Lawrence’s much loved musical moment.
Unlike the Golden Globes or the Oscars, fans get to decide who takes home the golden »

Dylan O'Brien has denied rumours that he has been cast as Spider-Man in the McU reboot of the character.
O'Brien told BuzzFeed that he hasn't been approached to take over the Peter Parker role from Andrew Garfield.
"Professionally, I haven't heard anything about it," he said. "I've only heard from, like, [rumours] online.
"It feels so weird to say. It's so funny. My friends from New Jersey are calling me. They're like, 'What are you not telling me, dude?! Spider-Man?!'
"It makes me feel bad because I'm, like, disappointing a big chunk of fans across the nation. You can tell them that it's not true."
O'Brien added that he found the Spider-Man rumours "flattering" and expressed an interest in playing the Marvel superhero. »
Shortly after it was announced that Sony Pictures and Marvel had agreed to share Spider-Man, with a new actor taking over the role from Andrew Garfield, it was rumored that The Maze Runner star Dylan O'Brien and Percy Jackson & the Olympians: Lightning Thief headliner Logan Lerman were the two front runners for Peter Parker. Both actors are 23, with Sony and Marvel said to be looking at someone who can play 'high school age'. While the youthful Dylan O'Brien appears to fit the bill, the actor told BuzzFeed that he hasn't heard anything about the role.
"Professionally, I haven't heard anything about it. I've only heard from, like, [rumors] online. It feels so weird to say. It's so funny. My friends from New Jersey are calling me.

Sony Pictures and Marvel are negotiating with Drew Goddard to direct Sony's upcoming "Spider-Man" reboot, which will not bring back Andrew Garfield as the title character. Goddard directed "The Cabin in the Woods" and was hired for Sony's "Sinister Six" villain spin-off. It's not clear if the studio is still interested in pursuing "Sinister Six," but all of that will be worked out when Sony meets with Goddard later today (Tuesday). Meanwhile, the "Spider-Man" reboot is set to hit theaters on July 28th, 2017. But first, Spider-Man will appear in Marvel's "Captain America 3: Civil War" on May 6th, 2016. »
Goddard had originally been tipped to direct spinoff Sinister Six, even leaving Netflix's Daredevil to focus on the sequel.
