Tom Holland joins Asa Butterfield as Marvel’s Spider-Man frontrunner


The race for Marvel’s Spider-Man role is currently hotting up even more than it already has. And that’s exactly how I see it, as a long marathon style race with breakouts from the pack and chases and all sorts of other drama.

Logan Lerman and Dylan O’Brien made an initial break from the rest of the pack but only until Dylan O’Brien was prematurely announced as a the winner. However, the actor himself admitted that he hadn’t won the race as he had a false start and the whole thing was restarted.
