Marvel's Spider-Man Said To Be Done Deal; Logan Lerman Favorite



A reddit user who claims they have a friend close to Disney is stating a deal is now in place for Spider-Man to appear in the Marvel Studios movies.

If legit (could be a big if), the user claims a meeting was recently held between Sony and Marvel that lasted about 40 minutes. The meeting is said to have gone over the "final kinks" of the deal they have been working on to "incorporate Spider-Man into the MCU."

It's said the meeting was short because the deal for Spider-Man is already in place, and they were "simply tending to other commodities."

If the deal is in place, Marvel can now use Spider-Man possibly as a post-credit scene for The Avengers 2 and a cameo in Captain America 3.

According to the rumor, the deal is expected to be officially announced after next month's "Spidey Summit," and the "heavy favorite" to play Spider-Man is Logan Lerman.

Logan Lerman, known for the Percy Jackson movies and most recently Fury, was said to be up for the role of Spider-Man prior to Andrew Garfield, where the actor previously stated: “There have been a few discussions, it’s definitely something I’m looking into. It’s [Spider-man] one of my favorite characters ever and I’m a huge fan of the series. I’d love to have more conversations about it. I’m definitely very interested in it.”
