Spider-Man is a fan favorite superhero. I mean, I haven't met a single person who doesn't like our favorite wall crawling, web slinging hero. And now, everyone's overjoyed at the prospect that Spidey could kick villain a$$ right next to the Avengers! So, life this new Moviepilot contest, I'll try making my version for a Spider-Man fancast!

1) Peter Parker/Spider-Man » Dylan O'Brien

Dylan O'Brien has the look for Peter Parker and the action experience for Spider-Man from "The Maze Runner". By the way, if you haven't seen "The Maze Runner", you really should see it. Back on topic, most agree that the Macguire Peter Parker was great but Macguire's Spider-Man was not so great. Tobey Macguire didn't throw out one-liners and crack jokes like the Spidey we know and love. But Andrew Garfield, on the other hand, gave us the humor of Spidey and Andrew Garfield looked and sounded genuinely excited to be Spider-Man, unlike Tobey Macguire. So, I think that Dylan O'Brien could give us the greatness of Garfield and Macguire to us, thus giving us the best wall crawling webhead we've ever seen.

2) Flash Thompson » Matt Lanter

Matt Lanter, while about ten years older than Dylan O'Brien, could very well still work. He has the look for Flash Thompson, and he has experience enough that I would accept him. Some of his more well known work includes: doing the voice of Anakin Skywalker in "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" on Cartoon Network and the movie "Vampires Suck".

3) Harry Osborn » Logan Lerman

Logan Lerman has starred in the 2014 film "Noah", Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief", and "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters". And all of those films are great! And his acting is one of the best parts of each film! Logan Lerman is an actor that can pull of different types of roles and with that, personalities. So, he has experience to play Harry Osborn, and he has the look of Harry Osborn.

4) Gwen Stacey » AnnaSophia Robb

AnnaSophia Robb was born in 1993, making her about the same age as Logan Lerman and Dylan O'Brien. (Matt Lanter is an exception.) She has starred in films such as "Because of Winn-Dixie", "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory", "Race to Witch Mountain", and even "Soul Surfer". So, she has a lot of experience with movies, and I believe she has what it takes to pull of Gwen Stacey just as well as the amazing Emma Stone from The Amazing Spider-Man franchise.

5) Uncle Ben Parker » Tom Hanks

I'm sure that all or most of you know who Tom Hanks is. He's Woody from "Toy Story", he's Forrest Gump from "Forrest Gump", and he's even Walt Disney himself in "Saving Mr. Banks". Well, Uncle Ben wouldn't be in much of the movie, but he'd be in flashbacks, saved videos, etc. So, I don't need to explain much here, but Tom Hanks is old enoug, has the voice, and the look for Uncle Ben.

6) Aunt May Parker » Sally Field

You will probably recognize and be most familiar with her work from The Amazing Spider-Man franchise, where she played as..... wait for it.... Aunt May! Okay, some may consider this cheating, but there was something to the Aunt May that she brought to us that it was just as good, if not better, than Rosemary Harris' Aunt May from the first Spider-Man franchise. Sally Field has starred in "Forrest Gump" along side Tom Hanks, "Mrs. Doubtfire", and "Lincoln" from the year 2012. She's a great actor that needs more time as Aunt May.

7) J. Jonah Jameson » J. K. Simmons

Because, who else?
Because, who else?

Because, who else? Yup, that's all that needs to be said.

8) Mary Jane Watson » Shailene Woodley

Shailene Woodley is about the same age as everyone else on list, besides for.the obvious exceptions, and she has starred in films like "Divergent", "Insurgent", "The Fault in our Stars", and "The Spectacular Now". She has the look and the experience for Mary Jane Watson, so she's just about the best you could get for this role.

9) Norman Osborn/ Green Goblin » Matthew McConaughey

Lately, Matthew McConaughey has been heavily rumored to be cast as Norman Osborn, and I think he would be great in the role! He's starred in film like " Interstellar", "The Wolf of Wall Street", and Dallas Buyers Club". And those are only his most recent roles. And as my last point of proof, look at the face pictured above and compare it to this--

Wouldn't McConaughey look even awesomer with that face?


Anyways, that's it for now. I know I could've gone on forever and ever, but I decided just to focus on the main characters. If I get positive feedback from this, I may do a part 2 for other Spider-Man villains and heroes, such as Black Cat, Doctor Octopus, and Miles Morales, and Venom. Anyways, I hope you had fun reading this post. And as always, comment, take the poll, whatever you want; I want to know.what you thought. Well, until next time, Goodbye and thanks for reading!!!
