Has Sony Picked Josh Hutcherson as the New ‘Spider-Man’?

http://movieweb.com/person/josh-hutcherson/Has Sony picked Josh Hutcherson as the new Spider-Man? We reported back in April that actor Josh Hutcherson was a new candidate to portray Sony's rebooted web slinger and now some new information has come forward. CinemaBlend spoke to the young actor today, who was promoting his new film The Kids Are All Right, and he confirmed that he has auditioned for the Untitled Spider-Man Reboot, although he didn't have any further updates as of yet.

Meanwhile, Blue Sky Disney is reporting that not only did Hutcherson audition for the film, but Sony made him an offer to star as the new Peter Parker, which he reportedly had accepted.

It's possible that Hutcherson's deal is still being worked out and they don't want to reveal anything until everything is signed, but it is also possible that Sony just hasn't made a decision on who will play Spidey as of yet. CinemaBlend also reported that Hutcherson will start filming Journey to the Mysterious Island, the sequel to Journey to the Center of the Earth, this fall, which could lead to a scheduling conflict with the Untitled Spider-Man Reboot if he does sign on.

We'll be sure to keep you posted on any further details regarding Josh Hutcherson and the Untitled Spider-Man Reboot as soon as we have more information.

The Amazing Spider-Man was released July 3rd, 2012.

    Lol @Bhaarth. Thanks for the heads up. However the fact that you actually remember my comment towards you from a past thread..? Grudge much? Lol. It was a typo, and I forgot to type a word. Whereas your comment made little to no punctual sense, nor did it have any merit if I remember correctly. I could be mistaken.

    And @AvatarSequel, I'll go against Insert for it. :P

              "Has Sony picked AVATARSEQUAL as the next Spiderman?" "Has Sony picked Diaigma as the next Spiderman?" "Has Sony picked Todd89 as the next Spiderman?" "Has Sony picked The Fallen as the next Spiderman?" "Has Sony picked Insert User Name as the next Spiderman?"

                MW, you might as well tell us it could be any kid between the ages of 16-20 with dark hair that will be the next Spiderman.

                    I bet Web is getting fed up as well, seeing so many kids then choosing the five finalists.One of them needs to pull something out of the hat to get his attention.

                    Who ever they name I'll watch it considering that it might be a waste of time.

                    The longer the delay the more chance it won't happen.

                        we shouldnt let Spidey die... i just think they needed a new director, and keep tobey as Peter Parker/Spider-Man. but this is just another bullsh*t rumour! im sick of this sh*t! it was like this with Captain America, every actor between the age of 20 - 30 was mentioned, until they finaly agreed on the Human Torch??

                          Logan Lerman? Really? Since little gay mama's boy looking kids are being considered, I'd rather see Zac Efron as Spider-Man/ Peter Parker. F-ck this remake sh*t. They should just let Spidey die with the 3rd film.

                            This is fake. The studio wouldn't an irritating little f*ck of an actor to play Spidey.

                                  Everyone should stop freaking out about this. If you paid attention to most recent story on the Spider-Man reboot before this, you'll know that Josh Hutcherson isn't even in the running to play Peter Parker any more and that there are 8 actors being considered over him including the earlier dimissed but apparently brought back Logan Lerman. and also, the website that broke that story is way more reliable than Blue Sky Disney, the site that broke this one. On top of that, all of the candidates ahead of hutcherson except 2 have screen tested where as when asked about his status in the auditioning process, hutcherson made it clear he had only auditioned he hadn't been contacted since.

                                  So in conclusion, there is no way Josh Hutcherson has been cast as Peter Parker. He could have possibly been casted in abother role in the film or possibly casted on another marvel film, but he for sure is not Peter Parker.

                                  Logan Lerman for Spider-Man

                                          So the new Peter Parker being played by a bland actor is different from the old how?
