I’m not believing much coming out of the Sony camp with regards to their upcoming  SPIDER-MAN reboot, but this looks like it may be legitimate.

According to “numerous sources,” Bleeding Cool is reporting that Jamie Bell has been cast as Peter Parker in the upcoming reboot of the famed superhero franchise. This would be the second massive project for Bell, who is the star of the upcoming THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN: THE SECRET OF THE UNICORN trilogy.

At this stage, this is still very much a rumor, which is the stage we have been stuck at for a while, with names like Josh Hutcherson and Logan Lerman both being the lead candidates for the role on respective days. With Comic-Con right around the corner, don’t look for any formal announcement until then.

Personally, while he may be the best actor of the names on Sony’s list, he’s also one of the oldest, and he looks his age. Also, he’s already got a rather massive slate, with three TINTIN films, so this seems a bit unlikely.

What do you think?

    Also agree with #1. Every single time First Blood is on TV I watch it (which has been happening a lot on AMC). Just a damn good movie. Really original protagonist and some really good antagonists too.
