There were reports earlier this year by Variety that Sony was auditioning for a younger Spider-Man, someone that would be a suitable age for a high school student. Rumored potential Spider-Mans were Dylan O'Brian (The Maze Runner and Teen Wolf), Logan Lerman (The Perks of Being a Wallflower), Asa Butterfield (Ender’s Game) and many more.
As Spider-Man is a role which many boys can only dream of, it's tricky to imagine how an audition to become this superhero would even run. After months of speculation and great anticipation, British actor Tom Holland (The Impossible) has been cast in the incredible role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man. Fans have been getting on board, showing their support for the young new superhero by creating some kick-ass fan art.
Check it out below.
