Jamie Bell Is the New ‘Spider-Man’?

Is Jamie Bell the new Spider-Man? We reported a few weeks ago that Columbia Pictures was narrowing down its list of contenders to play Peter Parker in a new superhero reboot and, according to a new story, they have made their final choice. Bleeding Cool is reporting that Jamie Bell has been set to star in the new Untitled Spider-Man Reboot.

Bell was one of the five actors mentioned in our earlier report, but if this new story ends up being true, it seems he has beat out the other contenders Alden Ehrenreich, Frank Dillane, Andrew Garfield and Josh Hutcherson. The site reported that they have, "received repeated reports" that Bell had been chosen to play Peter Parker.

The report hasn't been confirmed by the studio as of yet, but we'll be sure to keep you posted on any new updates regarding this breaking story as soon as we have more information.

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

                            He is the wrong actor for this role period. Rumor has it that the Lizard will be the villain and I dont want to see this dude as spiderman fighting Lizard. He doesnt fit the role on any level. Stan Lee should feel embarrassed to have this actor in the role. Either get Anton Yelchin or Logan Lerman signed or swallow your pride and give Sam Raimi anything he wants otherwise its a complete waste of time.

                              im from sunny england, jamie bell is quite a big name over here, at first i thought NO this is wrong, (as you can see from my previous post) but The Fallen is correct, he can act and he is the kind of actor that will do sequels and bulk up for the part. i worry slightly about his accent, but we'll just have to see on that one. they need to nail the story line/plot, make sure that this films knocks us off our seats! id love to see villains we havent seen in previous movies. Personally i think Thomas Dekker would have made a perfect peter parker, but lets just see how this pans out, i think it could be good!

                                  Look at all these f*cking fan girls, getting their panties in a twist. Bell can act folks! He may not be the ideal choice, and yes, he is too old. But that aside, he can pull of nerdy, and we know he can bulk up. Out of the studio's picks, he's the best possible option. I mean I'd love Logan to get the role, but it ain't happening. Remember Columbia is also thinking about the actors availability down the line, starting paycheck, the ability to commit to the stunts and physicality, etc. Another reason they might of chosen Bell.

                                  You should be worrying about how the story will play out, not about whether or not the actor is 5 years too old.

                                  And @blitx, calling Marc Webb an idiot simply because THE STUDIO wants these type of actors, it's very juvenile. The studio has the power. They have the final say so. Especially when the director has just started his career. The article even says, "Columbia Pictures was narrowing down its list of contenders". Read the article and actually watch some of the guys movies before you judge. If some crap actor that didn't resemble Parker was cast, then yeah, I would be pissed. But most of you haven't even heard of the guy and are already whining. Grow up.

                                      well if they going to do this than the story needs to feel way different from the first, and the first villian can't be green goblin they has to be some one else like kingpin or shocker.

                                        this movie is gonna suck! wrong actor to do this reboot. Sony is going to cluster-fudge this up just so they don't lose the rights.

                                        the first spider-man was really good, the second was awesome, the third one sucked! time needs to be taken off and then reboot or remake spider-man again in 10 years
