Will Billy Elliot Be The Next Spiderman? Jamie Bell Among Top Candidates For Franchise Star

Alden Ehrenreich

Best known for: Francis Ford Coppola‘s semi-autobiographical film, Tetro, playing the younger brother to Vincent Gallo.

Why he’d make a good Spidey: He was discovered by Steven Spielberg at a friend’s bat-mitzvah, yet has only appeared in one major movie. But being picked for the Copp0la role was no small deal, and his indie cred might make him the best bet for a Spiderman more in the vein of The Dark Knight than Captain America.

Frank Dillane

Best known for: He had a small part as a young Tom Riddle in Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince.

Why he’d make a good Spidey: Like Josh Hutcherson, Frank’s in the right age-range to play a young Peter Parker (he’s 16). Plus, he’s British, which everyone knows makes for the best teen heartthrobs (Ed Westwick, Robert Pattinson).

    Jamie Bell does look like a hot Culkin. I bet he’d be good at Spidey’s wall-scaling moves from all that dance experience!

    Rory Culkin would be sooo perfect for this.
