Just a few weeks ago it was revealed that Sony had their eye on five different actors for Spider-Man in the Marc Webb directed reboot set for release in 2012.
Then last week it was rumored that Jamie Bell had nabbed the role. Yet no official confirmation or denial for that matter ever came from Sony.
Now there appears to be two more names to add to the never ending list of candidates. The Los Angeles Times says Aaron Johnson (star of Kick-Ass) and Anton Yelchin (Chekov from Star Trek) are the next two stars to be added to the list.
They both fit right into in the proper age category, and for the most part even look the role to some extent. The biggest problem with this for me is Yelchin will be filming Star Trek 2 around the same time Spidey goes into production, and Johnson was already in talks to star in the upcoming X-Men First Class next year. As Jamie over at IESB points out, isn't three comic-book related franchises a bit much for the British actor?
Before this turns into the casting rumor nightmare that was Captain America recently I hope they just make it official and announce who will play Spider-Man in the rebbot noone asked for.
If you ask me I'm still leaning towards Josh Hutcherson for the role. Time will tell...
