Last week we heard that Marvel and Sony have narrowed down their new Spider-Man list to about five actors — Nat Wolff, Asa Butterfield, Tom Holland, Timothee Chalamet and Liam James. Now, Latino Review is reporting that Asa Butterfield, 18, is the frontrunner and the one most likely to get the role:
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, by stating: “Marvel had liked him since day one.”
Stay tuned to Spider-Man News as we learn more.
