13 Actors Who Could Be Next Spider-Man

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Who could replace Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man? That question is topic number one over at Sony and at Marvel Studios as they are getting ready to take the webbed wonder in a completely different direction. 

There are a number of talented young actors that could take over the role and make it soar. 

But, is that the direction they want to go? Sure, Peter Parker is a teenager when he gets the power of Spider-Man. But, does that mean that is how they want him to be portrayed when he first appears in a Marvel movie and then gets his own flick in 2017? 

We cover both angles, younger and older, as we present 11 actors we think would be perfect to play Spider-Man. 

1. Dylan O'Brien

Dylan O'Brien
Our pick for Spider-Man, honestly, is The Maze Runner and Teen Wolf star Dylan O'Brien. He has the charisma. He has the wicked sense of humor. He can play nerdy (as seen in The Internship) and he can play heroic (i.e. The Maze Runner). What more could we ask for?

2. Kodi Smit-McPhee

Kodi Smit-McPhee
Kodi Smith-McPhee would be a perfect "young" Spider-Man. He wowed us in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and previously in Let Me In. The Australian actor seems primed to be the next webbed wonder, but he is merely the first we're thinking of.

3. Ansel Elgort

Ansel Elgort
After charming audiences in The Fault in our Stars, Ansel Elgort seems primed for big-time stardom. What better way to hit that mark than to be the next Spider-Man? He's kind of in the middle of that young to older realm, and could step right into a non-origins story version of Spider-Man.

4. Taron Egerton

Taron Egerton
Taron Egerton has proven to be downright awesome in Kingsman: The Secret Service, so why not Spider-Man? Plus, did you hear what Colin Firth said about his talent? I mean, talk about a seal of approval.

5. Donald Glover

Donald Glover
Donald Glover has made it clear he would love to be Spider-Man. And at 31, he's a little older than most. But, if those behind this "new" Spider-Man want to go in that direction, there could be no more perfect of a choice.

6. Tye Sheridan

Tye Sheridan
Tye Sheridan impressed us as a young actor in Mud and in Tree of Life and he's ready to bust out in something huge. What could be bigger than the next chapter in the Spidey saga?
