Well, I guess we all need to hold our horses on the Spider-Man train. The previous report from mid-May that Asa Butterfield (Ender's Game) had been cast as the webslinger for an upcoming Untitled Spider-Man Reboot as well as a cameo appearance in Captain America: Civil War seems to have been wildly premature as TheWrap.com reporter Jeff Sneider revealed on his Meet the Movie Press series that Butterfield is no longer in the running, leaving the race up to Tom Holland (The Impossible), Charlie Plummer ("Boardwalk Empire") and Matthew Lintz (Pixels), all names that were reported in early June as still being in the running. The report continues by saying Sony and Marvel are a bit at odds over casting as Marvel wants to go with the younger Plummer while Sony likes the older Holland. Peter Parker (aka Spider-Man) will be featured as a high school student when the »

Though rumored to be the front runner for the role in the past month or two, it looks like "Hugo" and "Ender's Game" star Asa Butterfield may no longer be in the running to play the Marvel-approved Spider-Man in the upcoming reboot of the property.
The Wrap reporter Jeff Sneider tells Meet The Movie Press podcast that Butterfield is out, the second such seeming exit of a potential candidate today following "The Walking Dead" co-star Chandler Riggs sending out a tweet confirming he'll not be participating.
Sneider says there are three actors still in the running - Tom Holland, Charlie Plummer and Matthew Lintz. At the moment Marvel is keen on Charlie Plummer, Sony is keen on Tom Holland, and why the casting decision hasn't been announced is because the studios are still at odds over whom they see as the best fit.
The other catch is Plummer is a minor, »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel spent all of Saturday screen-testing actors in Atlanta for the role of Spider-Man, a superhero that will appear in Marvel's "Captain America: Civil War" before Sony Pictures reboots the "Spider-Man" franchise in 2017. Six teenage actors tested for the role, including Tom Holland (played Naomi Watt's son in "The Impossible"), Asa Butterfield (Hugo, Ender's Game), Judah Lewis (upcoming "Demolition"), Matthew Lintz (upcoming "Pixels"), Charlie Plummer ("Boardwalk Empire"), and Charlie Rowe ("Red Band Society"). Producer looked at as many as 1,500 actors from around the world and narrowed the list down to their final six in the last two weeks. Marvel may make its final decision in the next few days, but there's also a slim chance that the studio may continue its search. The one big factor that could influence Marvel's decision is age. In the new movies, Peter Parker will be a high school student. »

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 »

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.
