Dylan O'Brien Talks SPIDER-MAN Rumours


Not too long after Marvel and Sony had announced their new plans for Spider-Man, which entail an all-but-confirmed appearance in Captain America: Civil War before a Spectacular standalone movie, the only two names mentioned for the Peter Parker role were Percy Jackson's Logan Lerman and The Maze Runner star Dylan O’Brien. Well, now the latter young actor has finally addressed those reports that he's under consideration for coveted part.

“Professionally, I haven’t heard anything about it,” O’Brien told Buzzfeed today while on the set of MTV's Teen Wolf. “I’ve only heard from, like, [rumors] online. It feels so weird to say,” he said, laughing, about not knowing where the rumor originated. “It’s so funny. My friends from New Jersey are calling me. They’re like, what are you not telling me, dude?! Spider-Man?! It makes me feel bad because I’m, like, disappointing a big chunk of fans across the nation. You can tell them that it’s not true.” Even though the rumor isn't true, that certainly doens't mean Dylan O’Brien wouldn't be interested in playing the Webslinger on the big-screen. “It’s nothing but flattering,” he said. “It’s never something I would want to get myself excited about, since I know I haven’t heard about it from a professional standpoint,” he said. “I’ve always wanted to play Peter Parker, obviously. I feel like any actor my age, that’s, like, a big thing. And my name being tossed with Logan Lerman’s is the coolest thing ever, too. I just think that kid is [frick]ing fantastic.” He continued, laughing, “It’s really just, you know, I guess I’ll see if I even hear about it? But thank you, internet, for giving me false hope!”
