Jamie Bell Spider-Man

Thanks to the fact that Steve Jobs will clearing up all of the rumors about the new iPhone in a few moments, space has been left on the internet for another big rumor — Spider-Man casting. And while we’re working the phones and offering up back-alley handies to our friends inside the walls of Sony, we’re coming up with bupkis confirmation on this latest rumor. However, it will be a topic of conversation, so lets get on with it. Jamie Bell may be the world’s new Spider-Man.

The rumor has originated over at Bleeding Cool, who are claiming that they have “received repeated reports that Sony have settled on their new Spider-Man” in the last 24-hours that Sony and director Marc Webb have settled on Bell. The star of Billy Elliot, the failed sci-fi experiment that was Jumper, and an excellent piece to the beautifully acted puzzle of Defiance, Bell has proven himself to be a charismatic and dynamic young Brit. He will also star in Steven Spielberg’s upcoming Tintin film in the title role. At age 24, he’s well within range to play a much younger Spider-Man.

And here, I can’t help but be disappointed that Donald Glover didn’t even get an audition. Alas, let the confirmations, denials and fan discussions begin.
