So, after Marvel dropped the news earlier this week about Spider-Man coming home to Marvel the internet has been abuzz with questions and theories of where the studio will be taking the character. What we know for sure is that he won’t be played by Andrew Garfield and he’ll be a younger, still in high school version of the character. He’ll also likely pop up in Captain America: Civil War, but if the studio wants to get a real jump start on fan pandemonium they’ll somehow, someway, get it so the after credits scene in Age of Ultron features a shot of the web-slinger.
Garfield not taking part is a pretty definite shame. He inhabited Spider-Man in such an enthusiastic and playful manner that he’ll be a hard performer to top and I would have loved to see his version interacting with the rest of the Avengers ensemble. However. we’re starting from scratch once again and while it thematically makes sense I might put my head through a wall if we have to see Uncle Ben die again.
We get it. “With great power comes great responsibility.”
And on and on and on it goes.
There’s not much to go upon at the moment and we’ll likely be getting news about a director before a casting. Variety reported that Dylan O’Brien and Logan Lerman are two actors being eyed by the studio but we’ll see if that plays out over the upcoming months.
In the meantime, for fun, here are six actors I’d like to see don the suit.
