Former Spider-Man contender Asa Butterfield is more of a DC Comics fan anyways

19 year old actor Asa Butterfield was very close to becoming Marvel’s new Spider-Man, before they ultimately decided that Tom Holland was the best guy for the job. In a new interview with Flickering Myth, Butterfield revealed that he’s more of a DC Comics fan anyways, and expressed interest in a role in the DC Films Universe.

Check out an excerpt below:

Are you more a DC or Marvel fan?

DC honestly – just from the comics and the cartoon series. I like the grittiness of DC.

Would a role in the DC Extended Universe be something that may peak your interest? Looking at you, maybe playing Robin or Nightwing would fit?

Don’t jinx it! I’m maybe a bit too tall for Robin and about the same height as Ben Affleck but maybe someone who’s taller and sleek and a little sneaky!

They went younger with Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. Maybe you could be the new Riddler, he’s tall and sleek!

Stop, you’re getting me excited!

Are you a fan of the new DC films, Batman v Superman, etc.?

I’m a big fan and I’m really excited to see Justice League!

Do you think there’s a role in the DC Films Universe for Asa Butterfield? Who would you like to see him play? Let me know in the comments below.
