The new “Spider-Man” movie is being spun, with a director and an opening date nailed down. The director is Marc Webb, who helmed last summer's indie hit, "(500) Days of Summer." The premiere date is July 3, 2012. But the question most people want answered remains a mystery: who’s going to take over the tights from Tobey?
 
Since Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst will not be returning to this installment of the film franchise, which is an origin story, the hunt is on for a new leading man. According to The Hollywood Reporter, director Marc Webb has started to narrow down the casting list.
 
And the final five are…(drum roll please)….
 
1.   Jamie Bell, who first made a splash in “Billy Elliot,” his film debut from 2000. He is also scheduled to star in “The Adventures of Tintin” for director Steven Spielberg.

2.   Alden Ehrenreich was discovered in a bat mitzvah video, of all things, by Steven Spielberg, of all people. Ehrenreich has already starred in Francis Ford Coppola’s “Tetro” and has a role in Sofia Coppola’s upcoming “Somewhere.”

3.   Frank Dillane played the young Tom Riddle in the last Harry Potter film. And that’s it. Well, he would certainly fulfill the “Unknown To Play Spidey!” headline.

4.   Andrew Garfield appeared in Terry Giliam’s “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” and in the British “Red Riding” trilogy. He’s the oldest actor of the bunch, at 27. Too old to play young Spidey?

5.   Josh Hutcherson is on the other end of the age scale, the youngest of the group at 17. His recent credits include “Zathura” and “Journey to the Center of the Earth.” Despite his relative youth, he’s perhaps the most experienced of the actors in contention for the role.
 
Who gets your vote to don the coveted Spider-Man tights? Do you like any of these finalists, or do you have a candidate of your own in mind?

    i understand where u're coming from, but there are some actors u can give the benefit of the doubt, and he is definitely one of them. I saw him in 17 again, though it was sort of a comedy, you can see he can handle some really serious scenes in the movie. I think given a really good movie script, he can pull off being a very very good leading actor in a "serious" movie.

    He's got the skills. And movie makeup does wonders!!! I think he may be able to pull off spiderman. I mean Charlize Theron did spectacular in her movie Monster.
    I'm just saying. I'm sure they said she was too pretty to pull of such a grotesque person.
    spiderman charlize theron spectacular movie monster pretty pull grotesque person

    That is, quite possibly, the most brilliant idea I have ever heard. Ever.

    not on my mind at the moment, I only ask, why do an origin story? The first Spider-man movie was already an origin story, plus the two other sequels made revelations of the past when Peter felt it necessary to tell his Aunt that he lied about the night his Uncle died, and The Sandman had his own version of the truth, on that dreadful night.
    From what I read and was told, this new take on the franchise will put Parker back in school, but he didn't have enemies, except for Flash Thompson, and maybe Eddie Brock, but Flash is a pushover, and Eddie doesn't become a real threat until Parker goes to college, and more likely not until after he graduates. If they plan to have Peter fight his future enemies, when they were kids, I will not watch a recipe for disaster.

    I am not really a fan of the franchise. Super hero movies normally do not do it for me. Although I would have to admit I thoroughly enjoyed both Iron Man films.
