RUMOR: TEEN WOLF and MAZE RUNNER Star Dylan O'Brien Cast as New Spider-Man

Have Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios already found their new Spider-Man? If the Reddit user who previously broke the news that the two studios were nearing a deal to bring the webslinger into the Marvel Cinematic Universe is to be believed, the answer to that question is a huge yes — Dylan O'Brien will be the next Spider-Man. (H/t to Furious Fanboys)

So Dylan O'Brien is pretty much our new Spidey from the look of things. A source tells me he gave Sony the audition of his life, who by the way, absolutely loved what they saw from him. Amy Pascal and team knew they had their Spider-Man.

Sony apparently started leaning towards O'Brien over Lerman when they figured Dylan had a better grasp and feel of the tone they were going for.

Mind you, anything could happen from now until the official announcement, which if not on March 5th, (unlikely) then somewhere in mid-March to early-April.

But nonetheless, there is a tremendously high chance, like a 99.9% percent chance, this will end up becoming official. There's more info down below in the comments, see if you please.

UPDATE: It is official, Dylan has signed on as the new webhead!

If this news is true, O'Brien beat Logan Lerman for the role. Lerman has pretty much been in the running to play Spider-Man since Andrew Garfield was competing for the lead in The Amazing Spider-Man. Sony and Marvel casting O'Brien would signal that the studios are sticking with Peter Parker as Spider-Man, at least for the superhero's introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We're probably going to have to wait a bit longer to see Miles Morales on the big screen.

Spider-Man will most likely make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in 2016's Captain America: Civil War. There's a chance we could see the character hinted at in an Avengers: Age of Ultron credits scene too. After his MCU debut, a new Spider-Man new solo film set to hit theaters on July 28, 2017.
