We Have A New Spider-Man….Possibly

30 Jun

by: Captain Oblivious

Finally after a search that involved as many names as the search for Captain America it seems that Sony and director Marc Webb (no pun intended) have found their new wall crawler. Josh Hutcherson has been chosen out of a pool of talent that included Jamie Bell, Frank Dillane, Anton Yelchin and Percy Jackson himself Logan Lerman.

You may recognize him from Bridge to Teribithia, Journey to the Center of the Earth, Zathura and last year’s Circue de Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant. He has the right look especially if they are going with more of an Ultimate Spider-Man take in the new movie.

I don’t think that I am the only one glad that Spider-Man is getting the reboot here. Sam Raimi did a fine job with the first two (especially Spider-Man 2) and gave into studio pressure and loaded the third with so much junk that it wasn’t enjoyable. This is the best thing for the franchise right now. And I am excited to see how the character will take shape in this new story.
