But according to Latino Review, this thing is a done deal! All there is left is to sign the papers and make the announcement!
If the baby-faced 18-year-old really is our high school aged Peter Parker, we're guessing Marvel will make it official with the quickness.
Spidey will make his movie debut in Captain America: Civil War, which has already begun filming!
So what do you say, fans?
Do you like Asa Butterfield as Spider-Man?
