You saw this coming, right? I mean, Spider-Man was just cast (Tom Holland) and the reboot solo film is coming in 2017. They are reportedly focusing on Peter’s high school years, so it won’t be like Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man films or Andrew Garfield’s even. He is supposedly 15 in the film, although Tom is 19 who could pull off looking 15? I don’t know, I mean, look at Andrew Garfield playing a teen when he was in his late 20s/30 years old. We’ll see what their plans are eventually but in the mean time, its pretty sure that high school will be a big focus. So I stuck to actors that’ll fit in a high school setting (and, if any, outside that).
Official cast so far: Tom Holland (Peter Parker/Spider-Man), Zendaya (Michele Gonzales), Robert Downey Jr (Tony Stark/Iron Man), Michael Keaton (Vulture), Marisa Tomei (Aunt May), Kenneth Choi (Principal), Tony Revolori (Flash Thompson), Michael Barbieri (?), Laura Harrier (Liz Allan), Jacob Batalon (Ned Leeds), Angourie Rice (Betty Brandt). The confirmed villain is Vulture.
I just want to clarify that this fan-cast is in general and not specific to the first Spider-Man reboot (Homecoming). So any potential sequels or appearances by Spider-Man characters in the MCU in general…
UPDATE – Angourie Rice is said to be playing Betty.
BLACK CAT (Felicia Hardy)
I think it’s possible Felicia will be slightly older than Peter. I don’t know if she would still be in high school or not. We’ll see I guess! Let me know in the poll who you would cast! (If I’m missing an actress, comment below!)
*UPDATE – Virginia Gardner removed due to casting in Marvel’s Runaways.*
UPDATE – Tony Revolori is confirmed as Flash Thompson.
There are quite a bit of actresses out there that could potentially pull off Gwen. I think they all fit not only the physical characteristics of Gwen but are also right around the right age, as the MCU version seems to be sticking very well to the high school setting. You can vote in the poll who you would pick!
*UPDATE – Olivia Holt removed due to casting in Cloak and Dagger. Virginia Gardner removed due to casting in Marvel’s Runaways.*
Harry should probably be around the same age as Peter. The actor should also be able to pull off Harry’s personality, of course. Besides my own and fan’s ideas, I included a couple actors who were in the running for the role of Spider-Man (which ultimately went to Tom). Let me know who you would pick (or comment if I’m missing someone)!
SPIDER-WOMAN (Jessica Drew)
J JONAH JAMESON
LIZ (Elizabeth) ALLAN
UPDATE – Laura Harrier has been confirmed for the role.
MARY JANE WATSON
Again, a ton of actresses for Mary Jane. I think they all have great potential in the role and, like the previous actresses, match the physical characteristics and age range of MJ. A few may need to get a wig/hair dye, yeah, but that doesn’t mean we should disclude them. Again, vote in the poll and scroll down to see who I think should be MJ!
SILVER SABLE (Silver Sablinova)
The trouble with fan-casting Silver is I don’t know the age they’re going for, so this is based on my opinion more. This fan-cast will feature Silver as older than Peter (almost twice his age), to balance out the rest of the younger cast. But I also don’t know Marvel/Sony’s plans to include the character…
*UPDATE – Serinda Swan removed due to casting in Inhumans.*
Let me know what other characters, and even actors/actresses, I should add in the comments!
