Jamie Bell & Josh Hutcherson For Spider-Man?

Jamie Bell & Josh Hutcherson For Spider-Man?

Here are the candidates to play the famed web-slinger in the Spider-Man reboot, directed by Marc Webb of (500) Days of Summer fame.

Pictured (l-r, t-b): Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot), Josh Hutcherson (Journey to the Center of the Earth), Alden Ehrenreich, Frank Dillane, and Andrew Garfield.

The new Spider-Man movie will be an angst-ridden tale of a teen that will deal with Peter Parker having “the knowledge that his uncle died even though he had the power to stop it.”

Check out bios for the five candidates at THR!

WHO DO YOU THINK would play the best teen Spider-Man?

    I think that Jamie Bell would be good. He’s a really great actor and has actual talent. And also he has that geeky kind of look. Peter Parker is not suppossed to be this gorgeous guy anyway. I really think he would be able to pull it off
    But i do wonder what happened with adding logan lerman to the list?

  • meg

    jack O’connell should be spiderman!!

  • Amy

    Hutcherson may be too broad jawed now.

    Josh Hutcherson should be the next spider-man

  • shenanyginz

    Love Josh Hutcherson and all. Think he’s a really good actor but I still feel like a recast… well a spider man makeover is going to flop… majorly.

  • Ryan

    I think Josh hutchingson would make a good spiderman

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    none of them looks like a Peter Parker. as far as i know Jamie Bell’s the only one that can actually act. and that Hutcherson kid… can you say annoying, childish, geeky, and completely wrong?!? ..if you want Spider-Man to bomb and suck more than Spider-Man 3 then they wont cast him. i’m sure none of these kids will get cast for the role. Logan Lerman’s perfect for the role. it should have been his already.

  • sweetness

    I agree with inFamously Cool…none of them look like a Peter parker, and yes Logan Lerman has both the cute appeal and charisma to pull off being a young angst Spidey.

  • adrienne

    love jamie bell!! he should do it!
    brilliant actor! hes better whn he does his quirky little roles tho! he deserves a lot more recognition!

  • joke

  • mailey

    well, josh is cuter.

  • Cora

    Wow seriously…can’t Hollywood come up with any new ideas for scripts? Or if theyre really desperate, don’t they have enough books to make into movies?

    This topic/idea was already covered in the first Spider-Man movie, no one will be interested in seeing this ‘remake’…it’s just pure laziness…come up with a new idea!

    I don’t care who they cast as spiderman. It’s too early for a reboot. For crying out loud, the last one only came out on 2007

  • elle

    Jamie Bell! If I have to see a reboot, gotta be Jamie Bell! So talented!

  • maila

    If not Logan Lerman, then Josh Hutcherson!!!!!!!!!!!

  • anonymous

    Jamie Bell is an excellent actor but so is Andrew Garfield.
    He was so good in the movie Boy A, he actually won a BAFTA for that role. I do not know the other actor’s that are mentioned to comment on them. Huge for whoever wins this role, good luck to all of them.

  • NO CONTEST

    jAIME bELL

  • black

    This reboot sounds like some serious crap.
    The whole guilt-thing? Done that already? Why bother and milk the cow even more (not being serious here)?
    -
    -
    But if they´re really set on this, then they would be crazy NOT to cast JAMIE BELL.
    The boy could act his way out of a pullover if necessary.
    -
    -
    Think about it—-he is a guys guy, more than anything else. He is not some pretty boy guys would hate to watch on screen. He seems nice enough for both parties-
    -
    ——and yes—–he can act.

  • Anna

    definitively Jamie Bell. He’s a great actor and would be an awesome peter parker. The people should give him a chance to do a great interpretation and dazzle! I love that guy, definitively I’ll be in the premiere if chosen him

  • wutacrock

    I say either Jamie Bell or Josh Hutcherson.

  • tiff

    i think josh if u want the movie to be type funny or jokish u kno but the other dude if u want it serious i guess? :c

  • JJES

    Jami Bell is the best choice

  • Jill

    They’re all too good looking. lol
    Not to sat that Tobey Maguire wasn’t, he was cute, but he had that geeky appeal.

  • aeg

    Before, I recommended Jake Gyllenhaal to play the role of “Peter,” but it’s impossible ’cause (I think) Jake had signed for the Prince of Persia sequel.

  • jynni

    Alden would be great!

  • roxx

    FRANK DILLANE!! he needs to be in something like this

  • Carla

    Josh Hutcherson defff :)

  • Matt

    Jamie Bell is a solid actor, but is too ugly to be Parker.

  • NG

    @I n F a m o u s l y C o o l:

    I agree with you 100%

  • http://supernaturlisch.tumblr.com Emma B.

    What about Logan Lerman? :O If not him, then Josh Hutcherson.

  • lucy

    Jamie Bell would seriously give this movie some cred. Amazing actor and he still lokks like a teenager.Hope he gets it though I expect it will be offered to someone less edgy.

  • demigod

    No way, Logan is the best for the role of Peter Parker!

  • http://www.twitter.com/teresa365 Teresa

    I think you have the wrong Bell…I thing Drake Bell would be perfect for this role. He basically played the part in of Spider-Man in Superhero Movie, and he would be totally awesome!!!!

  • kevin

    None. Logan Lerman is THE perfect Peter Parker if you ask me. He looks like him, and has the strange nerdy amount of charisma to pull it off.

  • mari

    LOGAN LERMAN still the best choice for peterp/spidey. None of these guys have the same look, charisma, likeability, nerdiness to pull it off. too old, too brit, too short (guess who), too stocky, too cold and menacing, too long screename?!!! Guess Sony got scared of Logan’s increasing popularity. Just go back to Logan, Marc Webb otherwise most fans are just turned off

  • grface

    josh h. =)

    hot dudes

    Joooosh. he’s a brilliant actor and can pull of any role. Most of his characters have had a certian edge to them, so I think Josh as Peter will be really good, as Peter is portrayed as shy and geeky. Personally, I think Josh is able to pull of any role, but he’d be great for Peter Parker! if he gets casted I’m SO going to see it in the theaters……. multiple times.
    but i do agree with all the comments about Logan too. I think Josh will be best though. :]

  • Emm

    Defiinetely Josh Hutcherson!!

  • poppy

    yeah totally. andrew garfield is a great actor

  • http://www.twitter.com/Caityn_n Caitlin

    I think Josh Hutcherson or Logan Lerman ( i know he’s not up there, but he should be)

  • Lili

    I think the one who should be chosen should be Josh Hutcherson because he is super cute and I picture him playing the role. I just dont get that same feeling by looking at the other candidates.

    I LOVE YOU JOSH HUTCHERSON! <3
