Could Josh Hutcherson Be The New Spider-Man?

Just a few days ago, we reported the rumor that Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson) was “almost 100% locked” as the new Spider-Man, which was quickly refuted by the studio. Now, it begins again! The newest contender in the web of Spidey casting rumors is reportedly, Josh Hutcherson (The Vampire’s Assistant, Zathura).

IESB‘s source says that Hutcherson is on the shortlist to play Peter Parker/Spider-Man in director Marc Webb‘s re-boot and added that “Hutcherson has been getting into crazy shape as of late. Maybe he’s felling confident in his chances?

This has been unconfirmed by representatives for Hutcherson or the studio, so we’re kicking this one into the rumor bin…. for now.
