Dylan O’Brien Speaks Out about Spider-Man Rumors

Rumors have been swirling that Dylan O’Brien, the 23-year-old star of Teen Wolf, has been tapped to play the new Spider-Man. The rumors came to light after Sony and Marvel came to a deal in which Spider-Man would join the Marvel comic movies, but according to O’Brien the rumors aren’t true.

According to O’Brien he hasn’t auditioned for the role, and had no idea he was a “consideration” until a friend from home called to chastise him for not telling him he was up for the Spidey role stated a recent article in the west orlando news. O’Brien was quick to point out that although he hasn’t heard anything about it professionally, he’s absolutely interested. According to the star, playing Peter Parker is a bit of a dream of his. He went so far as to say he’s flattered by the fact that his name is being tossed around, even if it is just in the rumor mill.

To be fair, O’Brien does happen to have a passing resemblance to Tobey Maguire, the actor who played Spider-Man in the most recent film adaptation of the comics. Logan Lerman, star of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, has also been named as a potential Spider-Man, but that too is just a rumor.

The new Spider-Man film is slated for 2017, according to industry insiders.
