Sony Denies Logan Lerman as Spider-Man Report

ON

Ugh, I feel as if I was duped into writing up a rumor, something I have tried to avoid for the last year or so, but when HitFix reported Logan Lerman was “almost 100% locked” into becoming the next Peter Parker in Sony’s upcoming Untitled Spider Man Reboot I couldn’t help myself. Unfortunately, now the studio is sending out a denial and Mike Fleming at Deadline has the rather emphatic report.

Not only does Sony say Logan Lerman will not be playing the role of Spider-Man, they are “sure that Lerman was 100% not going to be Spidey and that he is not on the list of candidates being seriously considered.”

HitFix has since updated their article to say they stand by their source and their story, and I still wouldn’t be surprised if Lerman ended up with the role, but until I hear a solid report and not a solid “almost 100% locked” story I will do my best to stay clear of the rumor-filled waters on this one.
