Charlie Plummer

  1. Tom Holland, Captain America: Civil War, 2015.   Wanted: a new and younger Spider-Man for what amounted to The Avengers: Part 2.5 and, of course, a teaser for future Spideyverse tales. Despite vigorous interest from Brits Daniel Radcliffe to Freddie Highmore, the reported ten finalists to succeed Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker were: Timothée Chalamet, Canadian Liam James, Logan Lerman, Judah Lewis, Matt Lintz, Dylan O’Brien, Charlie Plummer, Chandler Riggs, Charlie Rowe, Nat Wolff.   Plus Londoner Asa Butterfield, way too tall in his tests with a shorter Robert Downey Jr (but OK to co-star with Chalamet in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, 2015).  During a 2013, Holland said what he wanted an action movie with humour. “Maybe Spider-Man, in ten years’ time.  The reboot of the reboot, if they do that.” They did. He did – becoming the youngest Spidey on June 23, 2015. The hero was 15, the actor was 19. His predecessors, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield were 25 and 27 back in their day
