With the rumor mill running like a mad house on Marvel meeting with Sony about Spider-Man joining the MCU for the biggest story lines ever fans' biggest concern is 'Who will play Peter Parker a.k.a. Spider-Man?'

It does not matter who you are, how old you are, where you grew up, when you hear the name Spider-Man you know deep down that inner child wants to see him swinging by your building screaming 'WOOOHOOOOOOOO!' Ok, maybe not you but I know I see those images every time I hear his name.

I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and I grew up on Marvel comics. One of my personal favorites was Spider-Man. From middle school all the way through I felt like I was Peter Parker. Always getting picked on, had all sorts of problems making friends and fitting in with certain crowds, and when I did fit in it was only with the rest of the nerds because I was probably the only one in my class with straight A's. Only difference is I didn't have any of his powers and abilities. Bummer :(

Nevertheless, when I would walk to school and back home after school I would always look up at the buildings wondering if today was the day I would catch at least a glimpse of Spider-Man swinging by screaming in his cheerful teenage voice. Yes, I know I know I must have been a pretty lonely kid, huh? LOL As a matter of fact, I was. But, I found a wonderful place in my comics.

Anyway, let me move on. I am sure that all of you are saying by now, 'Ok, you weird little lonely boy get to the dang point!" :) My point is Spider-Man is a very important character to the Marvel Universe. The type of character that needs special care. Now, before all of you run wild with your comments and feedback believe me I know that every other character is just as important. But, with where Marvel is at right now in the MCU, where they are at in regards to the story and what is coming up, Spider-Man cannot be handed out to just anybody.

I can sit here and write a whole page about all the great qualities that people have and why they should be considered for the role of Spider-Man. But, I'm not going to do that with this article. What I'm going to do is give you a list of people who I just came across and attach their names beneath it. In the comments, all of you fine people can argue amongst each other on who's better, who smoked what because of their opinion when they say Chris Pine and, go into full detailed stories about the history of Spider-Man and the franchises that was 'Once Upon A Time' that let us down, and also, start an ENTIRELY different topic (one that has no relation to this) about how someone bought a car and it had a used Spider-Man sticker attached to it LOL Then, after the list of actors who are just ok to me, I will give you MY choice for the PERFECT person to take on the role of Peter Parker :)

Ben Barnes

And, there boys and girls is your list of actors that I know YOU want to debate on :) And, as you can see I did NOT put Drake Bell on this list. Now, argue away.

Now, my choice is none other than the boy who has been recently building himself up in television on the series 'Teen Wolf' and his latest film 'The Maze Runner'. He is none other than...

Dylan O'Brien
Dylan O'Brien

Now, before everyone's blood starts to boil and your eyes begin to twitch, I know 'The Maze Runner' was not really all that great, but it really does not justify what this guy can bring to the role of Spider-Man. If any of you have seen the television series 'Teen Wolf' you know that this guy nabs that quirky, geeky, superhero-humorous personality just PERFECTLY without breaking a sweat!!! I mean, honestly when I'm sitting here watching an episode of teenage wolves trying to be noble and not tear each other apart Stiles (Dylan O'Brien) is the guy I'm waiting to see in a scene. Particularly, because this guy is just funny and interesting and literally makes the most out of every scene that he is in. To add to the many qualities that Dylan inherits he also has the physique and stamina, which he displayed very well in 'The Maze Runner'. There it is everyone. Short, simple and straight to the point. This is my ultimate fan casting for Spider-Man and if I were in charge of casting that role this is who it would go to hands down!

Yea, I just did that!
