The Final Contenders For Spiderman

| Filed under: Film Flickers

spideycasting.jpg

Considering the young men involved, this could be a difficult decision!

As Columbia does final preparation on the Spiderman script, the search for Peter Parker is underway. Supposedly, it has been narrowed down to five candidates.

The lucky gentlemen are:

Jamie Bell, who is best known as Billy Elliot. He has also appeared in Defiance and the upcoming films The Eagle of the Ninth and Adventures of Tintin.

Alden Ehrenreich, who was discovered by Steven Spielberg in a bat mitzvah video. He has been on an episode of Supernatural and the film Tetro.

Andrew Garfield, who starred in Red Riding and The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. He is also in the upcoming The Social Network.

Frank Dillane, best known as Tom Riddle in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.

Josh Hutcherson, who starred in The Kids Are All Right, Journey to the Center of the Earth, Zathura, Bridge to Terebithia, and the Red Dawn remake.

Who do U think will get it?!

    skanks.

    this is such a bad idea….they should just not make the movie. Me being a huge Marvel fan will be very disappointed. I don't want this to be another batman or superman movie. Spider man already covered Peter Parker from the beginning of when he got his powers…so whats the point?



  3. 3

    Ooo- That kid from Tetro is awesome. I am not sure if he is right for this, but he reminds me so much of a young Leonardo Dicaprio in the way he talks, his mannerisms, etc



  4. 4

    PLEASE! Jamie Bell! PLEASE

    Josh Hutcherson would be VERY good. He's already proven himself in adventure stories plus he has the good looks and boyish quality needed.



  7. 7

    I don't really see the point of doing this. Certain comic book characters have been covered to death already. I think the studios should either focus on characters which have not had any film attention or just stop with the comic book movies altogether.



  8. 8

    I like Jamie Bell, but I think Josh has SOOOO much more acting experience in movies people saw. My money is on him. Yes I know many people saw Frank in Harry Potter but still…….



  9. 9

    I thought the kid from Percy Jackson was supposed to be Spiderman?

    Josh Hutcherson!



  11. 11

    PLEASE PICK JAMIE BELL!!!!! Seriously people, Jamie is fantastic at action movies and a qualified actor. This would be the perfect project for him to get big in hollywood like Robert Pattison.



  12. 12

    Alden Ehrenreich who was discovered by Steven Spielberg come on you know when you hear the name Spielberg and discovered you kind of know who in the lead.

    Alden Ehrenreich!!!!!



  14. 14

    If anyone, I'd hope for Josh Hutcherson… he seems like he'd be a good fresh face for the role… but I'm not saying I agree with the remake at all.



  15. 15

    why r they doin this

    Did I miss something? What's wrong with Tobey? Is he bailing or are they going for someone younger? Personally, I think Tobey can pull off another 3 or 4 movies - he has a very young look as it is.



  17. 17

    jamie bell! loveeeee him since billy elliot days. also he is english and fittttt. and in a greenday video.



  18. 18

    i won't watch it at all. Tobey McGuire is Spiderman/peter parker. it won't be right.



  19. 19

    What happened to Logan Lerman?

    Out of those options, I say Josh or Jamie. Alden might make a good Harry Osborn though.



  20. 20

    Is it just me or what? I dont know any of these actors here. This is where hollywood is going too….none of these actors have the charisma of all the older actors. We need some new hollywood superstar like Tom Cruise, Clint Eastwood, Arnodl Schwarzenegger, etc. Not trying to bash these guys….but maybe they are not picking up the right movies and i dont think playing Spiderman is going to help either.



  21. 21

    HEY HOW BOUT JUST DON'T MAKE THE FUCKING MOVIE BECAUSE IT WILL FLOP BIG TIME



  22. 22

    If it was on acting abilty alone then Jamie Bell would get the part in a heartbeat. He would make the most interesting Spiderman too and still looks like a teenager. I fear they will more than likely go with Hutcherson who would be a nice and safe predictable choice but would offer no real edge to the role. He looks quite stocky too.



  23. 23

    Re: 7tizz
    They are going to remake the movies. As in…with a new cast..

    I say Jamie! He is nice to look at :)



  24. 24

    Oh please let it be ALDEN EHRENREICH. That kid is ridiculously hot. It might even make one of those stupid boring comic book movies worth watching if he's in it.



  25. 25

    ew!
    they're both ugly!
    esp. the one of the left! — he looks like a monkey

    Re: Dead.is.the.new.Alive – but why? they just came out with those movies like not too long ago



  26. 26

    I am SO over Spiderman. Can we move on?



  27. 27

    Definetely Jamie Bell!



  28. 28

    JOSH! He's the more experienced actor out of the others and he's nice and young but not too young. Also he's recognizable since he has been in some pretty popular movies and all since he was very little.

    Re: Dead.is.the.new.Alive – We really have to watch Peter Parker get bit by a radioactive spider…AGAIN!?! So soon? It's not even an old franchise. It just came out 8 years ago with the latest in the series just 3 years ago and already it needs to be remade? Why break a formula that was working critically and a good money maker? It makes no sense.



  30. 30

    They all suck! Seriously?



  31. 31

    I love jamie bell. I would love it if he got the part, although i also think andrew garfiled would do a good job.

    Whoever gets it has a very tough job on their hands



  32. 32

    Josh lives down the street from me and his little brother is good friends with my son, so I hope he gets it. He is a great actor!



  33. 33

    why not that kid from Kick-Ass? He would have been ideal.

  34. ONIT says – reply to this


    34

    Go back to your first choice Lerman. And if you drove that car against the wall, then take Hutcherson.



  35. 35

    IT HAS TO BE JOSH HUTCHERSON!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO QUESTION.



  36. 36

    I've never been to a BAT MITZVAH but it sounds very interesting.
    Ever heard of proofreading?



  37. 37

    what happened to LOGAN LERMAN



  38. 38

    FRANK DILLANE!? LMAO, all that kid does is sit around and smoke pot. He's to tan to be Spiderman.



  39. 39

    Jamie Bell- not cute enough
    Alden Ehrenreich- too sexy
    Andrew Garfield- no idea why he's in the running
    Frank Dillane- runner up
    Josh Hutcherson- my choice



  40. 40

    jamie bell jamie bell jamie bell!



  41. 41

    Jamie Bell… the others just don't mix with Spiderman



  42. 42

    Josh Hutcherson. The movies he has been in are pretty fantastic.



  43. 43

    josh



  44. 44

    Out of those I hope it's Andrew Garfield or Jamie Bell.
    Andrew was great in Dr Parnassus.



  45. 45

    AH! what happened to logan lerman? jeesus im so sad! he would have been an exellent spider man! logan is the best actor, and best looking man in the world, and not choosing him is probably the stupidest thing marvel has ever done. ever. this is horrible!!! i can't believe it! Logan Lerman SHOULD BE THE NEW SPIDER MAN!!!! :(



  46. 46

    WHY ISN'T IT LOGAN LERMAN? I MEAN, SERIOUSLY! WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM? DID SOCIETY, JUST FORGET ABOUT HIM!! THESE PEOPLE ARE ALL UGLY! (josh hutcherson is ok.) BUT STILL!! LOGAN LERMAN IS EXTREAMLY TALENTED, AND EXTREAMLY GOOD LOOKING, AND THEY DIDN'T CHOOSE HIM?? THIS IS… WOW…..THIS IS NOT COOL!!!!!!! JEESUS!!! I AM EXTREAMLY MAD RIGHT NOW! THIS IS JUST, NOT ACCEPTABLE! OVER THE TOP! JEESUS CHRIST!



  47. 47

    I take either Frank Dillane or Josh Hutcherson…



  48. 48

    eww none of these guys look like peter parker!! whatever happened to logan lerman??
