Who Is Favourite To Take Over As Spider-Man?

Donald Glover is the 5/4 favourite to don Spider-Man’s lycra following the (more than likely) departure of Andrew Garfield, according to William Hill. Keith Stanfield and Josh Hutcherson make up the top three at 9/2 and 5/1.


Jamie Bell heads the charge for the Brits at 10/1, the same price as Emma Stone (despite her meeting her maker in Amazing Spider-Man 2).


“Glover would certainly fill the role of Miles Morales as would Stanfield and both seem to be firm favourites among fans,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “Should Peter Parker be recast again Hutcherson seems most likely to bag the role, while Bell or Stone would certainly be alternative selections.”


Who will replace Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man in the upcoming Marvel Spiderman movie: 5/4 Donald Glover; 9/2 Keith Stanfield; 5/1 Josh Hutcherson; 8/1 Dylan O’Brien; 8/1 Ansel Elgort; 10/1 Jamie Bell; 10/1 Emma Stone; 12/1 Frank Dillane; 16/1 Miles Teller
