Another trip to RumourVille. It’s been so long.
Badass Digest is reporting that Mateus Ward has auditioned for the role (presumably) of Peter Parker. Mateus (whose name sounds like he just wants to make a friend) is probably most well-known for his short appearance in the TV show Weeds, yeah I didn’t see it either.
Since, in the civil war comic arc, Parker reveals his identity to the public as an adult, it’s pretty much set in stone that he won’t have his moment in the spotlight of the media in the 2016 adaptation. What’s curious is that when Parker unmasks himself, he explains that he has been Spider-Man since he was 15. Since Ward has only recently celebrated his 16th birthday, we’re most likely going to see Parkers origin…again. Kevin Feige has come out and said that we won’t be seeing any more origin stories, perhaps Sony’s Spider-Man stand alone will be the exception.
Let’s just hope we get a simplistic introduction to the character and his powers, kinda like we did with Ruffalo’s Hulk in The Avengers.
Keep in mind that this is coming from an “Untested” source and so, could end up being unreliable.
