Rumor: Asa Butterfield The Front-Runner for Spider-Man



With Civil War beginning production soon we’re going to find out who the new Spider-Man will be very soon, and it could be Asa Butterfield.

Latino Review has heard that the Ender’s Game star is the front runner and he may already have the part:

So who is the front-runner? Asa Butterfield Leads the Bunch. We have reached out to Asa’s reps who have given us a “no comment.” We have also reached out other industry sources who have confirmed that he is indeed the front runner including one who believed that he already had bagged the role

Marvel has wanted to go much younger for the new Spider-Man, so Butterfield does fit that role. The “no comment” Latino Review got from his reps is also pretty telling. We’ll know one way or another within the next couple of weeks when Marvel is expected to announce the next Spider-Man casting.
