Actor David Henrie has spoken out following claims he is to take on the role of Peter Parker in Marc Webb’s Spider-Man reboot.
Meanwhile, Clive Owen distanced himself from a rumour he is to play villain Kraven in the Marvel comic book adaptation.
He told The Coventry Telegraph: “That’s the first I’ve heard. My girls would like me to do it though.”
Henrie, who stars in Disney’s The Wizards of Waverly Place told OK! magazine: “I am very blessed that the rumour is even going around and I am very happy about it. That would be a dream role for me.
“I think a month ago I saw something pop up on Google Alerts that said, ‘David Henrie Might be the next Spider-Man’ and it’s been spreading around ever since. I am just happy to read it.”
The new Spider-Man, helmed by 500 Days of Summer director Webb, will open in cinemas in 2012.
