Did Marvel just audition 16 Year old Mateus Ward for Spider-Man?

Could we be possibly looking at the new Peter Parker? And yes he is wearing a Batman T-shirt.

will Mateus Ward be the new Spider-Man

According to Badass Digest’s Devin Faraci, we might very well be. As I previously reported Spider-Man is set to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe after a deal was struck between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures that would see the character making his first appearance in Captain America: Civil War. According to BD’s sources there was a top-secret casting session that took place somewhere in Los Angeles and it looks like sixteen-year-old former Weeds star Mateus Ward is in the running for the role. 

If this is the case not only will we be seeing a much younger Peter Parker portrayed than previous cinematic adaptations of the comic superhero, it’s also confirming rumours that when the new Spider-Man franchise kicks off, viewers will also be taken back to the bittersweet high school days of Peter Parker. Won’t lie I’m pretty excited.

With Captain America: Civil War beginning shooting in a couple of weeks, I think we can expect an announcement as to who will be playing Spidey pretty damn soon. Also we can expect the first film in the third big screen iteration of Spider-Man to hit cinemas on July 28, 2017.

So do you like the idea of of a much younger Peter Parker?
