It must have been a dark day for Asa Butterfield when he found out that it would be Tom Holland, not him, that had been cast as the lead character in Spider-Man: Homecoming. How exactly does one properly mourn missing out on a career-defining role when you’re only 18? All those countless hours of costumes and hanging upside down from a tangle of wires, not to mention the strict diet and daily workout routine. Come to think of it, maybe Butterfield wasn’t that upset after all. Eat a brownie, kid, because you can.

‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children’ Trailer: Tim Burton’s Latest Creepy Quirkfest

Ender’s Game sputtered out and he didn’t land the role of Marvel’s new Spider-Man, so Asa Butterfield’s latest stab at franchise immortality will come in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. Based on a best-selling novel by Ransom Riggs, the premise is sort of a Tim Burton spin on X-Men, with a house of strange and quirkily gifted children who live apart from society that doesn’t understand their abilities. And, yes, if this movie is a hit, Riggs has already written two Miss Peregrine sequels, Hollow City and Library of Souls. In other words, there’s nothing peculiar about Hollywood’s interest in this material.

Asa Butterfield Reportedly Cast as Sony and Marvel’s New Spider-Man

by Matt Singer May 14, 2015 @ 4:31 PM
According to Latino Review, after a long search, Butterfield has secured the role of Peter Parker for Sony’s newer, hipper, younger, version of Spider-Man. Word on the Interwebs (heh) claims this new Spider-Man will make his onscreen debut in next March’s Captain America: Civil War before spinning off into his own solo movie franchise that will be released by Sony but made in conjunction with Marvel and would be considered part of the official Marvel Cinematic Universe. That film (or, let’s be honest, franchise) would be separate from the animated Spider-Man movie that is also currently in development at Sony, under the direction of Lego Movie filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
