Josh Hutcherson NOT Yet Offered Spider-Man Role, May Be Cyclops in 'First Class'
A lot of buzz come from the casting process of untitled Spider-Man reboot lately. Blue Sky Disney recently claimed Josh Hutcherson has been chosen to play Peter Parker in the upcoming film after he followed several test shoots. The site stated their sources informed that helmer Marc Webb and Sony bosses think the "Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D" actor is the best for the role and Hutcherson has accepted the job.
However, on Wednesday, June 30, CHUD debunked the report, stating Hutcherson has not been offered the part. Though there is still a chance that he could get the offer, the site suggested it is unlikely that the 17-year-old star will be cast in the film. However, the site did not further mention a reason for this doubt.
Hutcherson, in the meantime, has confirmed that he joined audition to play the superhero in the upcoming "Spider-Man" movie. "I think a lot of people are auditioning and talking about it, so it's an honor to be considered on the same list with some of these actors that I'm up against," he told Coming Soon. "It would be an honor to play that role, it's a big thing, it's a total game changer. I really want to play a comic book hero."
While rumor about him playing in the web slinger film is yet to be over, CHUD has sparked another casting report mentioning Hutcherson's name. It is said that the depicter of Walter in "Zathura" is a favorite to play Cyclops in another big project, "X-Men: First Class".
"Spider-Man" reboot, which will see Peter Parker during his high school age, is slated for July 3, 2012 release in the U.S. Meanwhile, "X-Men: First Class", which will be directed by Matthew Vaughn and chart the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, secures June 3, 2011 as the U.S. release date.
