- Marvel may be looking to cast a very young Spider-Man, having reportedly auditioned 16-year-old Mateus Ward for the role.
Badass Digest reports that, according to an anonymous source, Ward is among those vying for the role, along with several other 16- and 17-year-olds. The auditions are said to have taken place in a house to keep them more secretive than an office setting would.
Ward has previously had roles in Weeds and the mini-series Hostages.
This of course doesn't guarantee him the role, but it does give us an idea of the age range of the latest take on the wallcrawler. Plus, it might put to bed rumors that Marvel's version of Spider-Man will be Miles Morales instead of Peter Parker.
Marvel is expected to introduce the new Spider-Man via a cameo in Captain America: Civil War, which is set to start shooting in April, though that has not been confirmed.
