We were so stoked when we heard the rumor that Dylan O'Brien had been cast as the new Spider-Man.

But according to the Teen Wolf star, it's just fan fiction. He said:
"Professionally, I haven't heard anything about it. I've only heard from, like, [rumors] online."
Awww! We were looking forward to the announcement of the Spectacular Stiles as Peter Parker 3.0.
But we aren't the only ones who'll be disappointed with Dylan's denial — and he knows it! He lamented:
"It makes me feel bad because I'm, like, disappointing a big chunk of fans across the nation. You can tell them that it's not true."
So WOULD he be interested if Sony and Marvel did come calling? OF COURSE! He explained:
"It's nothing but flattering. It's never something I would want to get myself excited about, since I know I haven't heard about it from a professional standpoint.
I've always wanted to play Peter Parker, obviously. I feel like any actor my age, that's, like, a big thing. And my name being tossed with Logan Lerman's is the coolest thing ever, too. I just think that kid is f**king fantastic.
It's really just, you know, I guess I'll see if I even hear about it? But thank you, Internet, for giving me false hope!"
He sounds even more bummed than his fans!
Who would U like to see as the next Spidey??
