Previous reports claimed that there were six names in the frame to play the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Spider-Man, with Asa Butterfield the supposed frontrunner. Well now comes confirmation of just which actors took part in an actual screen test for the role yesterday.

The Hollywood Reporter has word that the screen tests took place in Atlanta and that whilst Butterfield and the previously-rumoured Tom Holland took part, there were four new names to the fold.

As well as Ender’s Game’s Butterfield and The Impossible’s Holland, the new names in the frame are Boardwalk Empire’s Charlie Plummer, Red Band Society’s Charlie Rowe, Pixels’ Matthew Lintz and relative newcomer Judah Lewis.

Taking things in at the tests were Marvel’s Kevin Feige, directors Joe and Anthony Russo, and producer Amy Pascal.

A decision on who will be playing the MCU Spider-Man is expected to be made as early as next week, with 1,500 actors having been looked at before the shortlist was whittled down to the six names mentioned above.

Spidey will make his MCU debut in next year’s Captain America: Civil War before then spinning off to his own solo movie in 2017.
