Rumor: Is Asa Butterfield The New Spider-Man?; Is Matthew McConaughey The New Green Goblin?
Many names have been thrown around as the potential new Spider-Man and according to reports, it now sounds like Asa Butterfield is the front runner to don the mask. Asa Butterfield is best known from the films “Hugo” and “Ender’s Game.” A definite plus for him is that he is 18 but he looks even much younger and that is what Marvel and Sony are looking for. I wouldn’t be surprised if we hear something official in the next few weeks since “Captain America: Civil War” is filming, and although not officially announced, it is rumored that Spider-Man will make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in “Civil War.”
Another rumor that has been making the rounds is that Marvel and Sony are in talks with Matthew McConaughey to take on the role of the Green Goblin. I think McConaughey would make an excellent Norman Osborne/Green Goblin. Even though we have see the Green Goblin in 3 (maybe even 4) of the 5 Spider-Man films that have been made, I would love to see the Green Goblin back just so that he could be done right for once. Hopefully it is true and we will hear something soon.
