CHECK THAT: Andrew Garfield To Play New Spider-Man, NOT Josh Hutcherson

Just a few days ago, it sounded as if Sony Pictures had decided to cast Josh Hutcherson in their new reboot of Spider-Man. Sadly, every time someone hears something from a “source” these days, it ends up changing a couple of days later, and that’s exactly what’s happening here.

Sony is now officially announcing that Andrew Garfield has been cast in the lead role of Peter Parker. The announcement showed up on Sony’s official Twitter page, which a is bit strange, but nevertheless, that’s the news!

This is a really odd announcement not only because of the Twitter reveal, but because of the actor cast. Garfield is almost 27-years-old, making ALL those reasons that Josh Hutcherson was a good choice disappear. It’s been no secret that this was to be an origins story starting with Peter Parker in high school, so the casting of a guy pushing 30 doesn’t exactly bring a whole hell of a lot of logic to the table.

Garfield is still relatively new, but he has appeared in movies like The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, Lions for Lambs, and the upcoming Facebook movie, The Social Network.

I’m not personally familiar with the actor so I can’t say if this is good or bad. I was pretty happy with Hutcherson, so that changing to this gentleman at that age? Has me a little thrown off-balance here.

What do you guys think?
