Now that Marvel and Sony have come to an accord that will bring Spider-Man to the MCU, there has been a great deal of chatter about who will play the latest incarnation of the web slinger. A number of names have been bandied about, but a new list claims that the search has been narrowed down to five.

We know that this new Spidey will both be Peter Parker (sorry those of you rooting for Miles Morales) and be a teenage version of the fan favorite character, and all of the names on this list fall into that age bracket. According to a report from The Wrap, the five names in the running are Asa Butterfield, Nat Wolff, Tom Holland, Liam James, and Timothee Chalamet.

Spider-Man will reportedly make an appearance next year in Captain America: Civil War, and get his own solo movie in 2017. Considering that the next Cap adventure is gearing up to begin production before too awful long, it looks like Marvel is trying to get all of their ducks in a row when it comes to the latest addition to the MCU. Sony is preparing to bring these actors in for tests shortly, with an eye on making a final decision in the next two to three weeks, so lets take a look at the shortlist.

Asa Butterfield
Asa Butterfield may be less than 20 years old, but he’s already built up an impressive resume. He’s worked with Martin Scorsese on Hugo, and fronted an epic science fiction adventure with Ender’s Game. Over just 12 credited roles, he’s shown a remarkable dramatic range and could bring some emotional weight to Peter Parker.
