Would Aaron Johnson Make a Kick-Ass Young Spider-Man?

So much for that narrowed list of five contenders THR reported a couple of weeks ago: Jamie Bell, Alden Ehrenreich, Frank Dillane, Andrew Garfield, and Josh Hutcherson. A sixth name is now officially in the mix, along with a seventh, according to the LA Times.
You can add two names to the growing list of (very early) candidates for the young Peter Parker, and one of them is Aaron Johnson, who played the titular nerd-hero in "Kick-Ass," sources say.
So who's number seven?
The second actor to make his way on to the shortlist of the Sony film, according to sources, is Anton Yelchin, who has been coming on strong since his 2009 double-whammy of Star Trek and Terminator Salvation.
Given all of the rumor and speculation, we won't be surprised if more names join and fall off that alleged shortlist in coming weeks.
