According to TheWrap, Sony is well into casting Peter Parker for the upcoming MCU Spider-Man movie and has already compiled a shortlist.

Asa Butterfield (Hugo), Tom Holland (The Impossible), Nat Wolff (The Fault In Our Stars), Timothee Chalamet (Interstellar) and Liam James (The Way, Way Back) are all rumoured to be in the running for the role, with TheWrap expecting Sony to be making test offers within the next few weeks.

The Spider-Man movie, which is being helmed by Drew Goddard, will be set in high school and star a 15- to 16-year-old Peter Parker. From the list above, it looks like Sony and Marvel want an actual real-live teenager to play a teenage character, which will make a nice change.

Several other actors are also reportedly in the running for the role, but their identities remain secret.

The untitled Spider-Man movie will be in cinemas on 28 July 2017 in the US. Get all the latest comic book movie news with every new issue of SciFiNow.
