Asa Spiderman!

Asa Butterfield (Ender Wiggins/Hugo Cabret) is the new Spiderman!

The shortlist had him on the pole position over strong names like Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark on Game of Thrones) and Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson) and he finally nailed the job when he started to appear with glasses in a lot of promotional shots. Just kidding (well… kinda). The teenager is a great young actor and will possibly be the Spiderman for the next ten years. Let’s hope so. He will be the third Spiderman in the last fifteen years coming after Andrew Garfield (while in pretty mediocre movies) and Tobey Maguire. Both did a fairly good representation of the friendly neighbor, so Asa has a decent challenge ahead.

Sony, please, let this kid be the one. We don’t want another reboot. I couldn’t stand a third Uncle Ben’s death.
