Logan Lerman, star of the new film Percy Jackson and the Olympians, called in to The Billy Bush Show on Thursday, where he revealed that he is in discussions to replace Tobey Maquire as a high school aged web-slinger in the recently-announced reboot of Spider-Man.
“There have been a few discussions, it’s definitely something I’m looking into,” Logan told Billy this afternoon.
Online chatter has everyone from Michael Cena to Zac Efron to Robert Pattinson up for the role of Peter Parker, the crime-fighting superhero who masquerades as a shy photographer. For his part, 18-year-old Lerman says he’s been a Spidey fan for most of his life.
“It’s one of my favorite characters ever and I’m a huge fan of the series,” he added. “I’d love to have more conversations about it. I’m definitely very interested in it.”
