Asa Butterfield Top Contender For Marvel's Spider-Man
It's once again being said Asa Butterfield is Marvel's top choice to play Spider-Man; however, contrary to internet rumors, Butterfield has not yet been cast.
At least not yet.
Deadline offers an update in that Asa Butterfield and four other actors are in line to play the new Spider-Man, with the character thought to be debuting in Captain America: Civil War prior to the new Sony Spider-Man movie. Butterfield "currently stands as first among equals, but nothing is set in stone."
Other actors previously said to be up for the new Spider-Man include Nat Wolff, Tom Holland, Timothee Chalamet and Liam James.
It's possible a Spider-Man casting announcement may come soon as reportedly the actor will be needed in June for filming on Captain America: Civil War.
Marvel and Sony's new Spider-Man will follow Peter Parker through his high school years.
