Josh Hutcherson is on the short list for the role of Peter Parker in Marc Webb's upcoming Spider-Man reboot, the actor confirmed to Movieline today.
"[It’s kind of exciting..." the actor said in an interview, "...to see how much excitement there is already built up about it. I’m really excited for the restarting either way. People are like, 'Did you read the comics growing up?' No, not really, but the first movie came out when I was nine years old! I grew up watching those movies."
Other, still-rumored contenders for the part include Jamie Bell, Frank Dillane, Alden Ehrenreich, Andrew Garfield, Aaron Johnson and Anton Yelchin.
The "Spider-Man" reboot, being directed by Marc Webb, is set to hit theaters in July 3, 2012.
