Marvel Studios Confirms Cancellation of ‘Amazing Spider-Man 3’ as Pre-Production Work Begins for ‘Spider-Man’ Reboot

As such, the actor who shall play Peter Parker should be younger than Andrew Garfield or Tobey Maguire was during his three-movie “Spider-Man” series.

Both Maguire and Garfield were in their late 20s when they took on the role of Spider-Man. It has also been reported that there would be at least two “Spider-Man” solo films with the first one coming out in 2017. There is still no report as to when the sequel would come out.

Although there were a couple of names that were brought forth in February, Asa Butterfield has eventually emerged as the frontrunner to play Peter Parker and the wall-climbing superhero in the upcoming “Spider-Man” reboot movie.

The 18-year-old Asa Butterfield will follow the footsteps of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield but he will be the first Brit to play the role of “Spider-Man.” He is following the footsteps of fellow Brits Christian Bale and Henry Cavill in taking on superhero roles. Bale took on the role of the Caped Crusader beginning with “Batman Begins” while Henry Cavill assumed the role of Superman in “Man of Steel.”

Apart from “Ender’s Game,” Butterfield is also best remembered for his leading role in Martin Scorsese’s Oscar-winning drama “Hugo.”


  1. I’m watching the second film in the series RIGHT NOW. I just happened to be wondering if this Garfield guy was getting sacked for such an obnoxious performance and here I find that he went and torpedoed the whole project, single handedly. Either way, I hope he rebounds. The industry is full of hacks, no reason he can’t be another successful one.

  2. Literally nobody wants another Spider-Man reboot. Everyone knows his story and either Marvel re-contracts Andrew and continues the story and we actually get some character development or don’t bother bringing Peter Parker back. How about showing Miles Morales some love or Spider-Woman or Spider-Gwen or Miguel O’Hara or even Madame Webb if MCU needs a Spider (although Black Widow is technically a spider character, with her spider equipment such as widow bites, widow’s line, widow’s kiss. Just give us our Black Widow already.)

  3. They need to stop changing things and keep Andrew Garfield as the actor of spider-man. He’s a great actor, to me he was born for that part. I just get upset when they change characters, viewers form a connection and they as movie producers always cut the connection.
