The top five actors to play Peter Parker in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been revealed.
As many already know, the webslinger is due to make an appearance in next year’s “Captain America: Civil War,” which means Marvel needs to cast the role very soon.
Collider’s Steven Weintraub explains the dilemma on his Twitter:
The Wrap concluded that the shortlist has been narrowed down to these five actors: Photo courtesy of Latino Review’s Umberto Gonzales: The report also claims that director Drew Goddard “remains the frontrunner” to lead the webslinger in his first Marvel film.
“Spider-Man” made the jump from Sony to Marvel back in February.
Marvel boss Kevin Feige confirmed that their upcoming version of the webslinger will focus on the character’s highschool years.
“We want to play with Spider-Man in the high school years because frankly there’ve been five Spider-Man films and the amazing thing about it is, even though there’ve been five Spider-Man films, there are so many things from the comics that haven’t been done yet,” Feige explained to Collider .
“Captain America: Civil War” releases on May 6, 2016, while “Spider-Man” arrives in theaters on Jul.
