Six actors just tested for the role of Spider-man for Marvel/Sony

May 31st, 2015 by Marc 1 Comment


So, despite all the ‘Asa Butterfield has the Spidey role’ rumours (here), it looks like Marvel and Sony are still deciding on who shall be the MCU’s Peter Parker/fiendly neighbourhood Spider-man after all.

It looks like six young actors were testing for the very coveted role yesterday –  and yes, Butterfield was in there too. The actors in question were:

Tom Holland (The Impossible), Asa Butterfield (Ender’s Game), Judah Lewis (Demolition), Matthew Lintz (Pixels), Charlie Plummer (Boardwalk Empire) and Charlie Rowe (Red Band Society).

The tests occurred in Atlanta where Captain America: Civil War is currently filming.

The decision on the actors is expected to be made early next week, however (although unlikely) there is always a chance none of them will be suitable which means the search will begin again.

We’ll keep you posted.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
