According to Latino Review, Asa Butterfield (Ender's Game, Hugo) has been chosen to become the new Spider-Man, with the character getting set to make his big-screen comeback as a younger high school-aged Peter Parker next year in Captain America: Civil War, and then in his own solo movie in 2017. Multiple reporters from Variety and The Hollywood Reporter have confirmed that Butterfield is a top contender, but state that no offer has been made to him yet. So take all of this with a grain...

There are various reports circling that the Ender's Game actor is the first of "approximately five actors" in line to play the iconic Marvel superhero.
Deadline and Latino Review are both reporting (with varying degrees of certainty) that Butterfield could have already signed with Sony and Marvel Studios.
With all the rumours flying around about Andrew Garfield's replacement, we're taking this with a pinch of salt until we hear anything official.
The two studios recently entered into a deal which will see Peter Parker and his web-slinging alter ego appear in Marvel's films, while Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige will be involved in the production of Sony's next Spider-Man film.
Meanwhile, Butterfield will definitely »
Speculation has swirled for weeks over just who will become Marvel's latest incarnation of Spider-Man, and it seems that the studio has finally decided on its leading (young) man.
According to the Latino Review, Asa Butterfield has snagged the part, and is currently in negotiations with the comics powerhouse. An official announcement is expected soon, the site reports.
The 18-year-old Butterfield had been one of the frontrunners for a while now, among a pack of young actors vying for the role that included Nat Wolff ("The Fault in Our Stars"), Tom Holland ("In The Heart of The Sea"), Timothee Chalamet ("Interstellar"), and Liam James ("The Killing"). Marvel and Sony, who are teaming up for the flick, reportedly want to focus on Peter Parker at a younger age than any of the previous "Spider-Man" films, spending more time with the hero as he navigates high school, hence the search for an »

According to Latino Review, Asa Butterfield (Ender's Game, Hugo) has been chosen to become the new Spider-Man, with the character getting set to make his big-screen comeback as a younger high school-aged Peter Parker next year in Captain America: Civil War, and then in his own solo movie in 2017. Multiple reporters from Variety and The Hollywood Reporter have confirmed that Butterfield is a top contender, but state that no offer has been made to him yet. So take all of this with a grain of salt. Remember, Spider-Man is now part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, thanks to a groundbreaking deal between both Disney (who own Marvel) and Sony (who own the film rights to Spider-Man). As part of that Spidey deal, expect the following: -- The next stand-alone...

File this in your 'Rumour File', the same one you put "Eddie Murphy To Play The Riddler In The Dark Knight Rises", pending further reallocation into the 'Actually Happening File', but Deadline is reporting that "sources say" that 18-year-old Ender's Game star Asa Butterfield is entering into talks for the new, younger, extra-rebooted Spider-Man role.This role is, of course, not only for rights-owners Sony's new, new take on the franchise, but also for Marvel, with the much-loved, now-yet-younger-than-before character believed to be first introduced as part of next year's Captain America: Civil War, which has recently started shooting.The other young 'uns on the mooted Spidey might-bes list - Nat Wolff, Tom Holland, Timothee Chalamet, Liam James - are still "in the mix", meaning this rumour has Asa is at the top of the pile, but not 100% guaranteed to get the gig.

Last month, we reported that Sony and Marvel's front runner to play the new Spider-Man is Asa Butterfield, who was one of the two top contenders rumored to be up for the coveted role, along with Tom Holland. Today we have a new report that the studios have officially decided on Asa Butterfield as the new Spider-Man, with the actor currently in negotiations with the studio. This hasn't been confirmed by Sony or Marvel yet, but it seems the search for the new Peter Parker may now be over. Or is it?
When Marvel and Sony first struck a deal to bring Spidey into the Marvel Cinematic Universe earlier this year, part of the arrangement is that the new Spider-Man will first debut in an upcoming Marvel movie, most likely Captain America: Civil War, which is currently in production. While it has never been confirmed that this is the movie he will appear in, »

Update: The validity of this story has been challenged. Borys Kit from The Hollywood Reporter is saying that no offer has been made yet. Asa Butterfield is apparently testing for the role this week, but he isn't the only actor doing so. That being said, it does sound like he is still the frontrunner for the gig. The story as it was originally published is below. With Joe and Anthony Russo's Captain America: Civil War now in production, we knew it was only a matter of time before Marvel Studios finally settled on an actor to sign as their new version of Spider-Man. Well, if new reports are to be believed, it sounds like they may have found their man, as a source is now claiming that Ender's Game star Asa Butterfield has entered into negotiations for the role. This story comes from known scooper Umberto Gonzalez, who claims »
It looks like Marvel Studios & Sony Pictures may have found their new Spider-Man. Latino-Review's Kellvin Chavez is reporting that long-time rumored Spider-Man frontrunner Asa Butterfield (Ender's Game) may have finally landed the coveted role of Peter Parker beating out the likes of Tom Holland (In The Heart Of The Sea) and Nat Wolff (Paper Towns), amongst others. Even though we're still awaiting official confirmation, if true, Butterfield is expected to make his long-awaited debut as the friendly neighborhood wall-crawler in the Joe & Anthony Russo-helmed Captain America: Civil War, which recently kicked off production. Details about how large a role he'll play in the Marvel epic are still unknown. Following his presumed debut appearance in Civil War, Spidey is set to receive another live-action solo outing on July 28, 2017, a Phase 3 film which will see Peter Parker return to a high school setting and kick off a whole new generation of »
The folks at Latino-Review.com are reporting Asa Butterfield (Hugo, Ender's Game) has been cast as the new Spider-Man for Sony Pictures and will have his first appearance as the webslinger in next year's Captain America: Civil War followed by a new Spider-Man feature in July 2017. Butterfield was reported as the front-runner back at the end of April and other than a brief report saying Tom Holland ("Wolf Hall," The Impossible) was still in the mix that never changed. Word is the new Spider-Man will keep Peter Parker a lot younger, a lot longer, focusing on his high school years and word is they plan to go with a tone matching that of a John Hughes (The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off). Other names that were once on the short list of contenders for the Spidey role included Nat Wolff (Paper Towns, The Fault in Our Stars), Timothee Chalamet »

Signed, sealed, delivered? Well, not quite, but it looks like Marvel has locked up the next face of Spider-Man, as the studio sorta reboots the character with the permission of Sony. Umberto Gonzalez reports that Asa Butterfield has beat out a field of contenders including Nat Wolff ("Paper Towns," "The Fault In Our Stars"), Tom Holland ("The Impossible," "In The Heart Of The Sea"), Timothee Chalamet ("Interstellar," "The Adderall Diaries"), and Liam James ("The Killing") to land the gig. Of course, nothing is official from Marvel, but perhaps we'll know soon as "Captain America: Civil War" is currently filming and Spidey will be swinging into action in some capacity in that movie.

It looks like Spider-Man has been found.
El Mayimbe reports that long-time rumored frontrunner Asa Butterfield ("Hugo," "Ender's Game") has been selected to be the Marvel Studios approved new Spider-Man, with the actor now in negotiations for the role (but not yet signed).
If accurate, Butterfield has beaten out the likes of Tom Holland and Nat Wolff for the part. He is expected to make his debut in "Captain America: Civil War" which recently began filming. He will then get his own film for July 28th 2017, and will then likely crossover into other Marvel Studios films - the best bet being the "Avengers: Infinity War" two-film saga.

We heard earlier this week that Asa Butterfield is the frontrunner to play Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Kevin Feige looks to find a young actor who can take Peter Parker back to high school (and who won't be well into their 30s by the time the character is supposed to be only college age). According to Badass Digest's Devin Faraci, he's heard that as of last week, there were two names in the mix to play the iconic superhero next year. Butterfield and Tom Holland. There's a chance of course that neither actor will be cast or - based on that most recent report - Butterfield has already nabbed it, but these are two very interesting choices for the next Spider-Man. Butterfield is best known for movies like Ender's Game and Hugo, while Holland starred in The Impossible and will soon be seen in In the Heart »
A few days ago, it seemed the hunt for Marvel's Spider-Man was zeroing in on Asa Butterfield ("Hugo," "Ender's Game"), who was declared the frontrunner for the job. But of course, casting rumors tend to be in flux, and one more contender is apparently still in the game. Tom Holland ("The Impossible," "In The Heart Of The Sea") has joined Butterfield in the final two being considered for the job, according to Devin Faraci of Badass Digest. The 18-year-old actor is certainly in the right age bracket for the studio, who apparently want to go very young in casting the role of Peter Parker, who will be armed with quips, and spend a lot of time in high school if early chatter is anything to go by.

After a short list leaked the other week, it now appears Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures have narrowed down their list of contenders to play the new Spider-Man to just two eighteen-year-old guys - Asa Butterfield and Tom Holland.
A few days ago came the rumor that Butterfield is the frontrunner to play the new Peter Parker, but today's report at Badass Digest adds Holland's name back into contention. Nat Wolff, who was previously pegged as a potential front runner, appears to be out of contention.
Peter Parker is expected to »

I saw Avengers: Age of Ultron last night and while I'm not necessarily the most comic book savvy individual, it seems director Joss Whedon wasn't lying when he said there weren't too many Easter Eggs in the movie. At least there weren't any that I really noticed, though these films still can't really get by telling just one story without alluding to a darker, more sinister plan afoot in future films and such will be the cast in Captain America: Civil War, wherein a brand new, non-Andrew Garfield Spider-Man will have a cameo appearance and Marvel is looking to fill those shoes soon as the actor taking over the role is expected on set in June. Last we heard, 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, »

Today, Latino Review posted the report of Butterfield moving into the prime position, with their source saying: "Marvel had liked him since day one" and that he may have already bagged the role.
Butterfield's reps replied with only "no comment" in regard to the report. »
