With many sources now claiming that either Asa Butterfield or Tom Holland are the two choices for our webhead, the question is: Who is the best choice for Peter Parker/Spiderman? So, without further ado, let's see if we can't stop the 'Wondering'.

Our Choices:

1) Asa Butterfield

Asa Butterfield

For only being 18 years old, Asa has been in quite a few big and small screen ventures. He is most noted for his excellent portrayal of Ender Wiggin in the film, Ender's Game. With that, he also has starred in Hugo and Nanny Mcphee and the Big Bang. From this, we can tell that he has the experience of action films, like Ender's Game, and he also is able to bring that humorous wit that Peter Parker/Spiderman needs.

2) Tom Holland

While Tom Holland is the same age as Asa Butterfield, 18 years old, he has much, much, much, less titles under his belt than Asa Butterfield has. In terms of films, Tom Holland has only one, The Impossible. The only other acting experience he has is from Billy Elliot the Musical which played at Victoria Palace Theatre, London. So, it honestly is hard to make a judgement on him playing Peter Parker/Spiderman, but I will say that the film, The Impossible, is a fairly good film. And Tom Holland did a good job on his role.

My opinion:

While both have at least one good role to their credence, I think that Asa Butterfield is the better choice. He has much more experience than Tom Holland. And he is still a relatively unknown actor like Marvel is looking for. He is young enough to be Spiderman for years to come.

Well, that is my opinion on who should play as Peter Parker/Spiderman, but what do you think? Is Asa Butterfield or Tom Holland the better choice for Peter Parker/Spiderman? Comment below and share your thoughts on this matter. Until next time, Goodbye and thanks for reading!!!
