Here’s a list of the actors considered for the Spider-Man role in the MCU

Let the discussion start. Which of these actor do you want to be the new Spider-Man?

Back in 2012 and 2014, Andrew Garfield did a great job playing Peter Parker. The character was poorly written and unrelatable like in the comics. However, no one can deny Garfield worked hard when he had that role in his control.

Life goes on, Marvel and Sony made a deal to have Spider-Man in the MCU and now the studio needs a new actor. A good friend, Jeff Sneider of The Wrap broke the story.

While Sony and Marvel had no comment on the shortlist, these the actors considered for the role of Peter Parker.

Nat Wolff, best known for his role in The Fault in our Stars. He will be next to Cara Delevingne in Paper Towns.

Tom Holland, the kid from The Impossible.

Timothee Chalamet from Interstellar

Liam James best known for 2012 and The Way, Way Back

Asa Butterfield, a kid who worked with Martin Scorsese on Hugo. Butterfield also gained the main role in Ender’s Game.

Something curious about this shortlist is they are just finding someone who looks like a teenager and who can sign a deal for multiple movies. Spider-Man is only going to have a cameo in Captain America: Civil War since the central characters in the film are – obviously – going to be Steve Rogers, Tony Stark and Black Panther. The third installment in the Captain America series will film very soon. The role of Peter Parker won’t be filled until June, when the character is needed.

Like a said, I’m intrigued about this shortlist. If it’s true, Marvel and Sony are not only looking for a young actor, they’re looking for any kind of actor. There’s diversity in heights and ages. Wolff is the older and taller from the bunch, being 20 years old and 1,85m tall. Asa Butterfield is 1,78m tall while the other two are 1,70m and 1,68m.

Interesting fact about this is that Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, said the suit design is done, so according to that, they already have an actor. I mean, they should, looks at those heights. Physically, they’re very different people and the suit has to be on point for whoever is being cast as the new Spider-Man.

Personally, I would go with Tom Holland. The kid looks like a nice fit for the character and his awkwardness is quite Peter Parkerish.

Drew Goddard is the frontrunner to direct the new Spider-Man adaptation to be in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The rumored title is Spectacular Spider-Man and it’s set to hit cinemas July 28, 2017.

The impossible has happened: Spidey is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe

I’m freaking out, you guys. Seriously this is the highlight of my day, what a sad life. Anyways, we were rooting for it, even I, who occasionally works with Sony. It finally happened, Spider-Man will join the MCU, and I want to cry and fanboy all over this article about it. Marvel changed dates and everything, and it’s real.

Let’s be professional about this. Here we go.

A new superhero will be added into the world’s most famous cinematic universe. Marvel’s Phase Three got realigned now that Spidey is back home. Sony and Marvel came together to bring this character into a larger world of heroes. As you may imagine, Andrew Garfield will not reprise his role as Peter Parker and Kevin Feige will bring a new guy to give life to the character.

Also, Amy Pascal and Kevin Feige will join forces to produce this movie together. Is good to have someone like Kevin Feige in a movie like this. He is a man that has a lot of knowledge about the Marvel Universe, that’s why he is that position, being smart also counts, but of course, Marvel likes him because he knows exactly what to do. Prepare for the greatest Spider-Man movie since Spider-Man 2.

Like I said, some release dates got moved now that Spider is back home. Here’s the new slate:

May 6, 2016: Captain America: Civil War

November 4, 2016: Doctor Strange

May 5, 2017: Guardians of the Galaxy 2

July 28, 2017: Amazing Spider-Man 3

November 4, 2017: Thor: Ragnarok

July 6, 2018: Black Panther

November 2, 2018: Captain Marvel

July 12, 2019: Inhumans

Too bad Black Panther got pushed, but we understand the reasons. But this shows how powerful this studio is and how capable is Kevin Feige to pretty much do everything he wants. We thought this was impossible, but it’s not.

As one of the biggest Spider-Man fans in the world, reading the comics since I was seven years old, this makes me so happy. And hey, Mr. Feige, if you need someone to help you guys with the script, I’ll be more than happy (wink).

Let’s celebrate about this, these are good news. It’s a good day to be a Marvel fan.
