Are Dylan O'Brien & Logan Lerman Being Considered for Spider-Man?

Rumors are swirling that Dylan O’Brien and Logan Lerman are contending for the coveted role of Spider-Man in the upcoming film in the franchise, which is the start of the new partnership between Marvel and Sony!

Whoever ends up grabbing the role will replace Andrew Garfield, who starred in the last two films.

It is reported that the new film will have the superhero go back to high school, according to Variety.

If you didn’t know, Logan and Dylan were both actors that we wanted to play the superhero, among other actors, such as Donald Glover, Dave Franco, and Douglas Booth.

    Unfortunately neither of them is even remotely believable as a highschool student. The first guy lokks like he’s pushing 40, and the other one looks like he’s old enough to graduate from college. When is Hollywood going to start using actual teens for these highschool roles/

    I’m still rooting for a Miles Morales film but if we HAVE to have Peter Parker, Marvel, GIVE US DYLAN

    I agree, if they´re doing high school (again) the actor should be younger, but between these two, Lerman all the way!

    I agree, if they´re doing highschool (again) the actor should be younger. Between these two though, Lerman all the way!

    These are definitely not the most flattering pics of either Logan or Dylan. A quick Google search will show you that they are both very beautiful and youthful looking. Also, they are only 23, while Andrew Garfield (who I really like, btw) is 31. He also has a baby face. I guess they are just looking for skilled actors who look young. Not a bad strategy.

    I really enjoyed see andrew garfield as peter parker/spiderman, but between this two i think dylan will fit better

  • j k

    not the one on the left please

  • Jon M’Shulla

    They both look good.Dylan and Logan.

    Zac Efron, the drug addict is a no. Donald Glover is pathetic, like Sean Young playing her Cat Woman game. The others are too old.

    That’s not a very good picture of Dylan. It’s like you scrolled to the bottom of Google Images to find the worst one. Lol Here’s a better one:

  • lanmanna

    Dylan was great in the Maze Runner.

  • lanmanna

    LOL. Both are almost a decade younger than Andrew Garfield.

  • lanmanna

    Andrew Garfield was 29 when he did Amazing Spidey. He played a high schooler too.

  • lanmanna

    Why is Donald Glover pathetic? Have you EVER watched Community? He has the acting chops to do it.

    For my money, though, Dylan O’Brien is the best possible pick for Spider-Man/Peter Parker – not just of these two actors, but of the great many actors out there in this age bracket. In Teen Wolf alone, he’s played appropriately funny and sarcastic, extremely smart, and deeply emotional – all traits that are absolutely essential for the character. Ever since Teen Wolf Season 2 I always said Dylan O’Brien would be a fantastic Spider-Man. The character of Stiles is essentially Peter Parker without super powers. So I couldn’t be more excited that Dylan is FINALLY being considered to play this role. I do have a few concerns though. They literally just started filming Teen Wolf Season 5 DAYS ago. Plus Dylan has a commitment to The Maze Runner franchise. Even if Sony and Marvel picked him to play Spider-Man how could he possibly film all these things at once?! He could leave Teen Wolf (Jeff Davis would allow it after all), but it would be a huge blow to the show if he left. On top of that he is signed on for two more Maze Runner films. And if the studios can’t work out a scheduling deal then Dylan won’t be able to play the role. I hope everything works out and that they cast him for the role.

    The Scorch Trails is already in post production, they’re done filming, and Teen Wolf season 5 is filming right now. So, a cameo in Civil War would probably be filmed in May-June sometime. With a July 2017 (I think it’s July) for the first movie, it’d be filmed possibly in mid to late 2016. So, right now between Civil War and the first Spiderman for sure there’s only Death Cure and there’s about a year for that to be filmed. There have been rumors that season 5 will be the last of Teen Wolf. Even if it isn’t, there’s still that year which will could include the press, filming etc. Other actors have schedules that are just as if not more busy.

    they’re both insanely good, but in my opinion, Logan is more suitable for this role, he is more convincing. Just leave this comment here, I would like to do this)

    Cool. I didn’t know that. What do you think of Dylan O’Brien as Spider-Man?
