Fans of Spider-Man are rejoicing all over the world as the beloved character is finally being included in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Spider-Man is one of the only characters who are white and dysfunctional. He isn’t a Captain America with superhuman charm, morals and dedication. Fans like Sultan Alhokair know that he is an average kid with powers and his being white makes this even more important on a cultural level. Find more on Alhokair on Alhokair.com. So, as the New Spider-Man talks circulate in the media, here are a few actors who would be excellent contenders –
• Dane Dehaan – The actor made a few heads turn in ‘Kill Your Darlings’ and while the glory might have belonged to Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, Dehaan’s character and acting were commended by viewers and critics alike. Plus, he has the perfect mix of boyishness and social awkwardness to succeed as a younger version of Spider-Man.
• Logan Lerman – Lerman is likeable and a decent enough actor. He has proved his worth in Fury, Noah, Percy Jackson and The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Moreover, he has that look and we can totally see him play a junior version of Spider-Man.
• Alden Ehrenreich – He has held his own in front of the camera with the likes of Viola Davis, Emma Thompson and Jeremy Irons. He might be the underdog in this race but Alden Ehrenreich knows how to act, there is no doubt about that.
Other contenders include Ansel Elgort, Jonny Weston and Dylan O’Brien.
