With Spider-Man rumored to be 15-years-old, the young actor most people think of first is usually Asa Butterfield, known for Ender's Game, Hugo and Merlin.

Butterfield happens to be active on Reddit, and when a fan remarked Butterfield should play Spider-Man, the actor was all for it.

"I'M SO DOWN!" Butterfield enthusiastically responded.

Butterfield thinks he would make a good Peter Parker as well.

"I can do 'thin little bespectacled dweeb' pretty good, not far from myself actually," Butterfield added.

Butterfield's response took place almost a month ago, which was prior to it said Sony and Marvel may want to go with a 15-year-old Spidey, but it was still said they wanted Spider-Man in high school.

Asa Butterfield is 17-years-old hailing from the UK.

Spider-Man is thought to be appearing in Captain America: Civil War May 2016 followed by a standalone Spider-Man movie in 2017.
