Walking Dead's Chandler Riggs Not Playing New Spider-Man



With Marvel searching for a new Spider-Man, it's been said they tested a bunch of young actors for the part.

One of those actors looks to be Chandler Riggs, known for playing Carl on The Walking Dead.

Riggs tweeted out the following a couple of hours ago stating good luck to whoever lands the Spider-Man role, which seems to insinuate he tried out for the new Spider-Man, but didn't get the part.

Riggs also uses the Captain America: Civil War hashtag, which may mean he has insider knowledge that while trying out for the Spider-Man role, he was told it is for Captain America 3.

According to the Hollywood trade sites, Marvel is close to choosing their new Spider-Man with Tom Holland, Asa Butterfield, Judah Lewis, Matthew Lintz, Charlie Rowe and Charlie Plummer said to be the top contenders.

A new Spider-Man solo movie is also being planned for 2017.
