Ever since the news broke that Sony was rebooting Spider-Man with Marc Webb in the director's seat, only one name has been thrown around as a possible Peter Parker replacement. Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief's Logan Lerman was heavily rumored to be taking over the part from Tobey McGuire. And every news source on the planet ran with this news. Now, officials from Sony Pictures have shot those rumors down as being completely false.
Sony alerted us early today that no one has been offered the job. And that negotiations are not in place with any actor. Which might come as a surprise to Lerman, who has talked about taking on the role in various recent interviews. Are there any other actors rumored to be donning those iconic red and blue tights? The undisclosed source we spoke with gave us the name Angus T. Jones, who currently stars on Two and a Half Men. But this was clearly a joke. Right? We're not sure.
Spider-Man is set to be release in 3D on July 3rd, 2012. We will keep you updated as official casting announcements are made.
