Well, today is just a rumor-heavy day, isn’t it?

Along with a rumor putting actor Joaquin Phoenix in the role of Bruce Banner in the upcoming AVENGERS film, Sony is apparently in the midst of casting yet another Marvel Comics staple.

According to IMDB’s page for the film, Anton Yelchin is apparently rumored to be in the role of Harry Osborne for Marc Webb’s upcoming take on the SPIDER-MAN franchise. Now, it goes without saying that IMDB has had a crazy track record with these type of casting bits, but for what it's worth, I have to say, he would be a fantastic choice.

Not only does he really look the part of Harry, but he’s a great young actor to boot, which would perfectly go along with Andrew Garfield’s casting as Spidey himself. The two would be some of the first real breaths of something great to come out of this project, a film that, while high on potential, hasn't had me all that jazzed. There have been murmurs (particularly a tweet from actress Elena Satine) that former Peter Parker candidate Alden Ehrenreich could be picked, but personally, you couldn’t get much better or much more perfect than Yelchin. 

What do you think?
