When it comes to movies, especially movies with huge existing fanbases, like, say, Spider-Man, rumors tend to fly around as often as American Airlines. Nothing can be taken as fact until the cameras begin to role. Even deals that have been confirmed can suddenly disappear. With that in mind, the most recent Spider-Man casting rumor puts the red and blue suit on Josh Hutcherson.
Never heard of him? You probably aren’t alone. Hutcherson is best known for his roles in Journey to the Center of the Earth and Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant. He may not bring the star factor to the new Spider-Man, but that may be a good thing, and with such a well known property it might not make a huge difference who is in the suit.
Blue Sky Disney is reporting that Sony and director Marc Webb have agreed on Hutcherson, and an offer has been extended and accepted. No details were discussed, but again, this is still an unconfirmed rumor.
Other names that have been high on the Spider-Man list include: Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot), Aaron Johnson (KickAss), Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief), Anton Yelchin (Star Trek) and several others.
At one point it was reported that a deal with Lerman was all but inked, which turned out to be just rumors.
So, what do you think? Would he make a good Spidey?
