Six young actors auditioned for Marvel’s Spider-Man in Atlanta today, according to The Hollwood Reporter:
Tom Holland, who appeared as one of Naomi Watts’ sons in the acclaimed tsunami drama The Impossible, and Asa Butterfield, the child star from Hugo and Ender’s Game, were the best known of the contenders. The other four hopefuls included: Judah Lewis (a relative newbie who will be seen in the Jean Marc-Vallee’s fall drama Demolition), Matthew Lintz (who will be seen with Adam Sandler in this summer’s Pixels), Charlie Plummer (who had a recurring gig on Boardwalk Empire), and Charlie Rowe (a British actor who appeared on Fox’s short-lived Red Band Society).
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, former Sony president and now a Spider-Man producer Amy Pascal, and Captain America: Civil War directors Joe and Anthony Russo were all present for the auditions.
Marvel’s Spider-Man is expected to make his debut in Captain America: Civil War, and The Hollywood Reporter says that a casting decision is expected to be made next week. Stay tuned to Spider-Man News for all the latest on your new Spider-Man!
