The Cinema Source recently reported that Percy Jackson and the Olympians star Logan Lerman has been cast in the role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man in Marc Webb's reboot. This exclusive news was related to the site by an insider source.

The Cinema Source doesn't supply any further details regarding the rumored casting choice or how they came about this information. Until this is confirmed by the studio, don't consider it official.

This isn't the first time we've heard Lerman's name linked to the new Spider-Man franchise; which will focus on a younger Peter Parker that tries to balance his first few years of crime fighting with high school. Lerman has stated that he is very interested in the role, but there has been no word that the studio is actively pursuing him as a candidate.

I debunk the rumor. I will not watch any of these new films whatsoever. Sony has proven to be a bunch of money-grubbing bores. Nuff said.

darn... i was really hoping they would change their minds about casting a high school age kid. i hope this is just another rumor like this site likes to post

Ian Somerhalder or Joseph Gordan Leavit. they can pull off high school senior. which is as early as the movies should go

I smell Bullshit.
InstigatorGIRL - 2/23/2010, 1:04 PM
Until I see Percy Jackson I will hold my opinion about whether or not I would be happy about this kid being the next Spidey.
Hyacat - 2/23/2010, 1:05 PM
I like the ultimate line but the guys they keep suggesting seem too "Cool" and "Buff" to play puny Parker. Seriously Zac Efron!?! WTF please tell me he's not still in the running.
OdinsBeard - 2/23/2010, 1:06 PM
Instigator@ i'll judge him! haha. but it really has nothing to do with mr lerman. i just think they should go a bit older.
InTylerWeTrust - 2/23/2010, 1:07 PM
Huh. He's personally my choice for the reboot, but I don't know if it's true. I'll just wait and see, which is my motto for the reboot in general.
bleedthefreak - 2/23/2010, 1:10 PM
DAMN NO i wanted this role but whatever i am cool with lerman
Talontd - 2/23/2010, 1:12 PM
really? REALLY? REALLY!?!?!?!

How the [frick] have they cast the SPIDERMAN reboot, when we don't even know who CAPTAIN AMERICA is yet???!!! [frick]in Bullshit!

However, i think this is true. The kid just opened his mouth too early before. Anyone seen Percy yet????
sansClaymore - 2/23/2010, 1:13 PM
booooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!
SHHH - 2/23/2010, 1:13 PM
Question In the Ultimate Line don't half the villian's know who spiderman is? and his freind's?
Ryden - 2/23/2010, 1:16 PM
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Logan Lerma IS NOT Spider-Man in the slightest. Life long Spidey fan here and if this is true then I'm not watching it.
SandMan101 - 2/23/2010, 1:16 PM
hell no...hes a horrible actor id take zac effron over him!!! blaaah@@@@
MercWitaMouth88 - 2/23/2010, 1:19 PM
I have given up all hope on the reboot.
OdinsBeard - 2/23/2010, 1:20 PM
i think im with Ryden@ tho im willing to wait for a preview.

how long was spider-man really in high school in the comics? my whole life i've always knows spider-man to be just that - a man. he got his powers in high school but that is by no means the most interesting part of his life.
Ryden - 2/23/2010, 1:23 PM
@OdinsBeard- He was in highscool for as long as Ditko was working on the comic, the bets years IMO. I like the high-school route but if this is the casting choice, then they've done something mighty wrong. I think I've got my own spider-sense when it comes to Spidey-movie news and it's going off right now man, he wouldn;t make a good Peter.

Levvit is the better option.
OdinsBeard - 2/23/2010, 1:25 PM
Ryden@ yeah, seriously. and thanks for clearing that up for me. what happened to the good old days of casting a 28 year old to play a high schooler? haha.

it's gotta be leavitt but it wont be:(
comicbookjerk - 2/23/2010, 1:29 PM
Zac Effron Is Peter Parker.....After 17 Again none of you can change my Mind.....
ComicKnight - 2/23/2010, 1:32 PM
I don't even care that he is or isn't cast for the part, the picture itself is what upsets me. I've had a trident tattooed on my arm in that very same spot for the past 5 years. I've always liked Greek mythology, Poseidon being my favorite, so I drew up a trident design for myself. It's just ironic that the concept is used in a movie. Tho it's vertically reversed from mine and a different style.
JasonTodd - 2/23/2010, 1:36 PM
@insti girl-percy jackson is crap-tacular. nothing like the book. its like thy changed parts tht didnt really need to be changed. just a pretty boring movie all around.
UltimateSpidey - 2/23/2010, 1:38 PM
ahhhh i mean the reboot its horse shit, and this kid didnt seem like he could hold the spidey mantle, ill aways go see a spidey movie but im rather bothered if this is true
AvengingAngel1022 - 2/23/2010, 1:41 PM
damn i really dont wanna watch it now but i gotta take one for the team
HelaGood - 2/23/2010, 1:48 PM
something this huge would have a LOT more sources confirming it. this is total B.S.
bleedthefreak - 2/23/2010, 1:52 PM
I hope there is open casting for this movie i may be inexperienced but i could do better than lerman i mean he is alright but i am someone who would love to play spider-man i don't need a big pay check plus i am a big ultimate spiderman fan i think they should take that concept but use 616 universe personalities i hate ultimate MJ worried bitch it is to much like dunst
ecksmanfan - 2/23/2010, 1:52 PM
I'll wait til this is confirmed before I cast judgement.
Set2Fallfirst - 2/23/2010, 2:05 PM
He is actually a really good actor.
InFamouslyCool - 2/23/2010, 2:11 PM
i don't care for a reboot at all, but i do like this kid. seen percy jackson.. the kid can actually act. he's good. i like em. i'd watch him play spiderman (without a hard-on like some of these adult cbm crackheads)

keep crying about caprtain america. keep crying for the next couple months, years, however long. scream jensons name till you passout.

JoshWilding - 2/23/2010, 2:12 PM
Spider-Man is my favourite comic book character but I have little to no interest in this high school reboot...still, it would be great if Lerman were cast!

Set2Fall: I agree! :) How're things bud?
Bandrews1 - 2/23/2010, 2:13 PM
I hope this is true.
BruceWayneNewton - 2/23/2010, 2:20 PM
Enough REBOOTS! Let's see him kick some ass instead of him going to school. Spidey High School Musical will be SH^T.
jusme6 - 2/23/2010, 2:25 PM
I would think they'd get an unknown. I wouldn't be surprised if this was true though.

We should get the Cap casting announcement within the next few days.
LEEE777 - 2/23/2010, 2:26 PM


Piece of SPIDEY 90210 SH1TE!!!

ULTIMATE [frick] UP!

Wouldn't watch this even on TV! : p

(If they lose the ULTIMATE angle, it might be worth seeing)

Though NO to that actor, ive seen LIGHTNING THIEF and he is SH1T!!!
marvel72 - 2/23/2010, 2:33 PM
he will do,mary elizabeth winstead for mary jane she's bloody lovely.if i was spidey i would rather save her than kirsten dunst.also the film should feature gwen stacey in the 1st movie,do some kind of love triangle.GREEN GOBLIN FOR THE VILLAIN LETS HAVE A RUBBER MASK VERSION,NOT THE GOBLIN IN THE BATTLE ARMOUR HE LOOKED LIKE HE WAS IN THE WRONG FILM,MAYBE HE SHOULD OF BEEN IN IRONMAN.
flames809 - 2/23/2010, 2:34 PM
im ok with him being spiderman
Colton - 2/23/2010, 2:36 PM
if only it was marvel instead of sony. We'd hav some hope. Wats d bets of green goblin as 1st villain? No green goblin please
superdog - 2/23/2010, 2:43 PM
fck a reboot
Spyder3355 - 2/23/2010, 2:44 PM
havent seen the kid in anything yet, so ill hold my vote. ill see the reboot regardless, i just hope its good
antz1104 - 2/23/2010, 2:46 PM
Sounds fishy. I will hold down the little man inside me shouting "are you F$$KING SERIOUS?!" until I see anything else this kid has done. I'm a Tobey fan, he's got alot to fill.
DogsOfWar - 2/23/2010, 2:46 PM
I saw Percy Jackson this week. The movie was very uneven and definitely geared towards the twi-market. Logan was pretty decent in it though. He has natural stage presence and charisma. He did seem to struggle showing emotions though I am not sure if that is just because of the movie.

As others have said, I will wait and see if this is true but I believe Logan can play the role of Spidey.
NERO - 2/23/2010, 2:48 PM
"Insider Souce" eh?

I smell:

But, I do like the kid for Spidey.
