Gabbing Geek sources have just confirmed that Michael Cera will be cast as Spider-Man in both the future Sony standalone pictures as well as upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe cross-overs.
“Michael Cera brings a sense of vulnerability to the role that’s been lacking since Tobey Maguire cried in the first Spider-Man film,” president of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige announced in a press release. “Peter Parker has always been a bit of a wuss, just with superpowers. We think the movie going public will really take to Michael in the role. Plus he looks a lot like that new Lex Luthor guy and we love messing with DC.”
