If this new incarnation of Spider-Man goes the route of Peter Parker like the last two trilogies. there's one or two potentially interesting choices to play the character. Not only does this new Spidey have to be talented, but also young. I don't want another mid-20's actor playing the web-slinger, I want him to be a high schooler who can contrast with the older members of The Avengers like Tony Stark, Bruce Banner and Scott Lang. The star of one of the most underrated 2013 films in my book, The Way Way Back, Liam James, would be a good pick in both regards. Timothee Chalamet (who was on the shortlist reportedly to play Cyclops in X-Men: Apocalypse) would also be a good pick for the part, and Ansel Elgort could also fit into the role well, though he may be a bit too stereotypical "handsome" for Peter, a trap that Andrew Garfield fell into when portraying the character.

Of course, Peter and Miles aren't the only two possibilities. Ben Reily could also be a potential lead, though I like to imagine that whole clone saga didn't even happen myself. They could also go the route of recent comics and have Spider-Gwen, who as you can likely guess is Gwen Stacy in the Spider-Man persona, run shoulders with The Avengers. Lots of possibilities here, but I'm hoping for Tony Revolori as Miles Morales the most myself. Of course, Spider-Gwen sounds like it could be fun, especially if they got Emma Stone back to play the character, It'd be a nice way to compensate for utterly wasting her in the two Amazing Spider-Man features.
