Is Billy Unger Also A Spider-man Contender For Marvel?

25 April 2015 10:38 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In The Wrap's original report on the shortlist to play Spider-Man in Marvel's Captain America: Civil War, they noted that there were other younger actors also in the running besides Nat Wolff, Asa Butterfield, Tom Holland, Timothee Chalamet and Liam James.  Given Marvel's history (Captain America, Star-Lord, etc.) of having an extensive shortlist during casting and then ultimately picking someone Not on that list, The Wrap wisely gave themselves some wiggle room.   Could the same thing play out with Spider-Man? Fans have noticed that Billy Unger (19), star of Disney Xd's Lab Rats, attended the Avengers: Age of Ultron and inexplicably used the hashtag #SpiderMan.  This was days before The Wrap broke their story.    Marvel also went out of their way to highlight Unger's appearance at the premiere.

One of These Skinny White Dweebs Will Probably Be Your Next Spider-Man

23 April 2015 11:54 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Marvel and Sony are looking for a teenage Peter Parker for their shared Spider-Man reboot, and according to a leaked short list, the new Spidey will likely be one of these five guys (from left to right): Asa Butterfield, who was Hugo in Hugo and Ender in Ender's Game. Tom Holland, who currently plays Thomas Cromwell's son on Wolf Hall. Liam James, who starred in The Way, Way Back. Timothée Chalamet, who was Dana Brody's obnoxious boyfriend on Homeland. Nat Wolff, who was the sidekick in The Fault in Our Stars and will soon star in Paper Towns. All of them are appropriately young, nerdy, and vaguely recognizable. May the best web-slinger win! (And if he doesn't, may the role be filled by a surprise last-minute addition, as happened with Captain America and Guardians of the Galaxy.) »

Who will be the next Spider-Man? See the shortlist of actors!

23 April 2015 10:31 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

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: »

23 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last night we learned Phil Lord and Christopher Miller will begin working on a new animated Spider-Man movie for Sony (aren't they all essentially animatedc) with a planned July 2018 release date, but that film is separate from the new adventures of Spider-Man as the studio is set to reboot the webslinger for the second time and a list of five contenders has arrived courtesy of The Wrap. Nat Wolff (Paper Towns, The Fault in Our Stars), Asa Butterfield (Hugo, Ender's Game), Tom Holland ("Wolf Hall," The Impossible), Timothee Chalamet (Interstellar) and Liam James (The Way, Way Back, "The Killing") are reportedly in the running to star as Peter Parker (aka Spider-Man) as the character needs to be cast soon as he's expected to cameo in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War, though word is that role won't be filmed until June.

Why Finding Peter Parker Shouldn't Be First On Marvel's Priority List

23 April 2015 8:41 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

According to recent reports, Sony has narrowed its search for the next Peter Parker down to five candidates, ranging from Nat Wolff (The Fault in our Stars) to Asa Butterfield (Ender.s Game). It.s still believed that Peter Parker and his masked alter ego, Spider-Man, will make his debut in 2016.s Captain America: Civil War, setting the stage for the first Marvel standalone Spidey film on July 28, 2017. But at the moment, I couldn't care less who gets to play Peter Parker next. The five mentioned actors sound fine. Pick either of them. Pick someone else. Because while I think it.s important to find a talented actor to eventually play Peter Parker in Marvel.s first pure swing at an McU Spider-Man movie, I think this casting decision is probably the fifth or sixth most important thing the studios need to be worrying about if they.re ever going »

Five Actors in Talks for Spider-Man Reboot

23 April 2015 7:56 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

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. »

Asa Butterfield, Nat Wolff, And More On Shortlist To Play Marvel's 'Spider-Man'

23 April 2015 5:01 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"Captain America: Civil War" is shooting very soon, and the rumors have had it that Marvel's rebooted Spider-Man will make his first appearance in the film. But before that can happen, they need to cast him, and a few names have surfaced as contenders for the gig. The Wrap reports that buzzworthy rising star Nat Wolff ("Paper Towns," "The Fault In Our Stars"), Asa Butterfield ("Hugo," "Ender's Game"), Tom Holland ("Wolf Hall," "In The Heart Of The Sea"), Timothee Chalamet ("Interstellar," "The Adderall Diaries") and Liam James ("The Killing") are in the running. It's certainly not the most diverse selection of players, and we guess those previous assertions by the trade that Spider-Man "would not be white" didn't pan out. That being said, there's still some time for this to play out as the new Peter Parker isn't expected to have to be on set for 'Civil War' until »

Is This The Shortlist Of Actors To Play Spider-Man?

23 April 2015 1:24 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

As we all know, Spider-Man will be swinging into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with next years Captain America: Civil War, so with little over a year to go, the hunt is on for a new actor to pull on the iconic red and blue suit. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has previously said that the Peter Parker this time round will be a lot younger than previous incarnations, with this new take keeping the character in high-school, and now The Wrap reportedly have gotten their hands on a possible short list, consisting of Natt Wolf (The Fault in Our Stars), Asa Butterfield (Hugo, Ender's Game), Timothee Chalamet (Interstellar), Liam James (The Way, Way Back) And Tom Holland (The Impossible). They all range in the age of eighteen to twenty, so they're in the right age bracket, and they certainly all have the Parker look. This line of casting does follow »

‘Spider-Man’ Gets Animated In Brand New Standalone Movie

22 April 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

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.

It’s going to be a busy time for Peter Parker’s spandex-clad alter-ego. He’ll »

Spider-Man: the shortlist to play the role

22 April 2015 10:57 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Five candidates have been revealed to take over the role of Spider-Man from Andrew Garfield...

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.

Firstly, there's Asa Butterfield, best known for his work in Hugo and Ender's Game. Then there's Interstellar's Timothee Chalamet, The Way Way Back's Liam James, »

Sony Pictures and Marvel have reportedly whittled down their list of potential candidates for the upcoming Spider-Man film to just five names according to The Wrap.

The studio is expected to make test offers next week for the coveted role, with a decision expected in the next 2-3 weeks and a deal to then be hammered out.

‘The Lego Movie’ team behind animated Spider-Man feature for Sony

22 April 2015 8:22 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Get ready for more Spidey — but in animated form.

During a panel at CinemaCon today, new Sony chairman Tim Rothman revealed that the studio would be releasing an animated Spider-Man film with The Lego Movie and 22 Jump Street directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller attached to write the treatment and produce. There is no confirmation as to if the duo will direct the film.

According to the press release, the film will stand independently from the already announced 2017 live-action film that Sony is making with Marvel and Kevin Feige. This means that it won’t be apart of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and could be a one-off film. Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, and Amy Pascal are set to serve as producers.

While the idea of another Spider-Man movie sounds mundane, the prospects of having Lord and Miller behind it has to make many people (even non-fans) excited. The duo have »
