We all know by now that Sony have allowed Marvel to go ahead and use Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and that Andrew Garfield will no longer play the web slinger, with Marvel believed to be interested in bringing in a younger actor. There have been a lot of names being linked to the role, with the likes of Zac Efron and Logan Lerman being suggested and now another name has emerged.
The latest rumour is that Star Trek actor Anton Yelchin is being lined up to take on the role of Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the 25-year-old actor believed to have exactly what Marvel are looking for. Despite the fact that Anton is 25, he still looks much younger than his years and could easily get away with playing someone in their late teens.
According to the reports surrounding Marvels plans for the next Spider-Man standalone movie, they will be looking to focus more of the attention around his time at school and how he has to try to fit fighting crime in with his studies and relationships. We have already seen Spider-Man movies in the past, where he briefly attends school but the new films will have more of a focus on that.
With that said, it is still early days in the development of a Marvel Spider-Man and so many things could change between now and the Spider-Man movie being made. It is expected that we will first see Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War in 2016, so casting the right actor for the role will need to happen quite soon.
