Butterfield was on the reported shortlist for the role that came out last week. He was a top pick for Sony with Ender’s Game which was geared up to be major YA film franchise itself but hasn’t gained traction for a sequel. Butterfield will be the next Marvel hero not from around here. He is British as is now Dr. Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Daredevil (Charlie Cox) which is different from the virtually all-American Avengers.

Butterfield’s people have no comment and Marvel has not responded.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: The Next Avenger is reported to hit theaters on July 28, 2017.
