A new report claims that Ender's Game star Asa Butterfield, 18, is currently the frontrunner to become Marvel's Spider-Man/Peter Parker.
Asa has been mentioned as a contender for the role several times, but now Latino Review is ready to declare him as the leader of the pack Spidey hopefuls.
Asa Butterfield Leads the Bunch. We have reached out to Asa’s reps who have given us a “no comment.” We have also reached out other industry sources who have confirmed that he is indeed the front runner including one who believed that he already had bagged the role, by stating: "Marvel had liked him since day one." - Kellvin Chavez
