In the last twenty-four hours, Bleeding Cool had received repeated reports that Sony have settled on their new Spider-Man. And he is Jamie Bell, English actor, star of Billy Elliot with another major comc-book lead under his belt, playing Tintin in the upcoming Spielberg/Jackson/Moffat/Cornish/Wright CGI adaptation of the popular comic.
To star in the leading American comic franchise and the leading European comic franchise simultaneously? Greedy, greedy boy, Jamie Bell.
P.S. Unless of course it is Josh Hutcherson after all, then as you were.
