Has Marvel Found It’s New Peter Parker?

So for the past few months I’ve been hearing a couple of names bounced around as possibly being our next Peter Parker. First of all, I am glad that Marvel has decided to go with the Peter Parker Spider-Man for their movie universe rather than Miles Morales for many reasons which I covered in a previous post. If you are interested in reading up on that, then just Click Here. So it appears that our new Spider-Man/ Peter Parker is going to be an actor that I actually know very little about.

It is being reported by many sources that Asa Butterfield is in final negotiations for the role of Spider-Man and that his Marvel cinematic debut will be in Captain America: Civil War. Who is Asa Butterfield you ask? Ya know, he’s that guy who played in that one movie…With the other guy. Yeah, honestly I have no idea who he is. I don’t claim to be a movie expert by any means so I’m probably not the guy to ask whether I think he will be a good fit or not.

As far as his look goes, he sort of reminds me of a young Elijah Wood and that’s not exactly what I had in mind for Peter Parker. Still, Marvel has done a great job with all of their casting choices so far and done justice to their respective heroes and story lines. I have to go by faith on this one and say that I am putting my trust in Marvel to know who will best portray the Web Head and how to best use him in the up coming Marvel movies. I mean they honestly can’t do any worse than Sony has with him…right?

As always I want to know what you think Nerd Nation. Do you think that Asa Butterfield will make a good Peter Parker/Spider-Man? I seriously want to know because I have not seen any of his movies and have no idea if he is a good actor or not.
