We reported just days ago that Marvel and Sony were closing in on their new Spider-man, with five names in the running (here): Nat Wolff, Asa Butterfield, Tom Holland, Timothee Chalamet and Liam James.
And now it seems that the choice may have been made… Asa Butterfield.
Now, we’ve favoured Asa for a while now (here) and we were confident he would nab the role and it looks like we may have been on the money.
The rumour is that someone close to the production has said that Butterfield is in the role already, saying “Marvel had liked him since day one”.
What do you guys think? Is the Ender’s Game star the man/kid for the job?
We like Butterfield and can see him in the role… we should know for definite very soon.
Spidey is set to debut in Captain America: Civil War on May 6th, 2016..
