Rumor: Asa Butterfield is Spider-Man


spider-man-civil-warIt wasn’t long ago that word came out that Asa Butterfield was a front-runner for Spider-Man, and not it sounds like he has the part.

According to an Instagram post by El Mayimbe, Marvel has entered negotiations with Asa Butterfield’s people. He stresses that nothing has been signed yet, but if they’re at the negotiation phase it’s a good sign that he’s going to be Peter Parker in Civil War.

With Captain America: Civil War in production now, it’s possible we’ll hear an official announcement about Butterfield winning the part very soon. It could happen before the end of the month as they’ll need to get Spidey’s scenes filmed for that movie.
