Marvel And Sony Reportedly Can’t Agree On Who Should Be The New Spider-Man

Marvel And Sony Reportedly Can't Agree On Who Should Be The New Spider-Man

As fans have been rejoicing about Spider-Man returning to Marvel, which apparently means everyone will get the reboot they’ve been dreaming of, even though the comic studio has already stated they’ll be putting Peter Parker back in high school again. Some have forgotten, however, that Sony still has a say in what happens, and apparently from the start the studios can’t seem to agree on who should sling webs.

On today’s Meet The Movie Press, The Wrap’s Jeff Sneider revealed that Asa Butterfield was out of the running for the role (which may be partially due to him talking about the part before he had it), and that the race is now down to two names: Tom Holland (“The Impossible”) and Charlie Plummer (“Boardwalk Empire“). The tricky part? Sony wants the former and Marvel wants the latter, though there’s no word on why they have a difference of opinion on the matter.

That said, a decision will have to come soon either way as whoever is going to play Spidey is gonna have to get the spandex on soon and jump on the set of the currently filming “Captain America: Civil War.” [via Comic Book Movie]
