Asa Butterfield, Tom Holland And More Screen Tested For ‘Spider-Man’ Reboot | Film News
Ever since it was announced that Spider-Man would be making an appearance in Marvel’s upcoming Captain America: Civil War, the internet has been abuzz with speculation over who would be stepping into the iconic blue and red suit. Last month, we got our first look at the contenders with Brits Asa Butterfield(Ender’s Game, Hugo) and Tom Holland (The Impossible) in the running.
According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, a decision has yet to be made but Butterfield, Holland and four other young actors (Judah Lewis, Matthew Lintz, Charlie Plummer and Charlie Rowe) have been screen tested. Some fans had been hoping for a more diverse group vying for the role, with some even pinning their hopes on a Miles Morales Spidey.
At least he’ll be played by someone age appropriate (both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield were far older than the teenage Peter Parker during their time with the role. With Civil War set to hit the big screen next May, casting news can be expected soon.
