Asa Butterfield to Be the New Spider-Man

We at TG are kinda tired of the whole Spider-Man thing, and feel it’s been played out for a while, but that’s certainly not going to stop the Spider-Man conveyor belt from churning out more reboots. So who’s going to be next to don the Spidey-suit?

Apparently it’s going to be Asa Butterfield, according to Latino Review and a number of other websites. Never heard of him? He was the child star of Ender’s Game, and he was also in Martin Scorsese’s Hugo.

Butterfield is British, and he looks a bit like Frankie Muniz from Malcolm in the Middle. He often wears glasses, and definitely looks nerdy and young enough to play Peter Parker, and he’s apparently going ot be taking over from Andrew Garfield.

Latino Review tells us that Spider-Man should be making an appearance in Captain America: Civil War, which is shooting right now. Apparently this will be an even younger Spider-Man, spending more time in high school before going out into the world.

Like Batman Vs Superman setting up a Justice League movie, a whole new Spider-Man movie is set to follow Civil War, and it’s planned to be in theaters on July 28, 2017.
