Percy Jackson in Talks to Play Spider-Man?

According to a conversation he had with Access Hollywood's Billy Bush, the 18-year-old star of Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief may in fact become our next Spider-Man. Logan Lerman told Bush that he's had some conversations with Sony about playing the character, and that they've reached out to him about the role. He says, "There have been a few discussions, it's definitely something I'm looking into. It's one of my favorite characters ever and I'm a huge fan of the series," he continued. "I'd love to have more conversations about it. I'm definitely very interested in it."

And why wouldn't he be interested in it – it's Spider-Man, and it's a guaranteed franchise that's sure to make this kid a household name. Problems may arise, though, when it comes to the Percy Jackson movies, especially since he's probably under contract to film more than one and that potential schedule may get in the way of him shooting Spider-Man. But that's if there's more than one Percy Jackson movie – the first has to turn into a hit before any more are greenlit.
 
As far as Lerman goes, he'd honestly be a perfect fit. He's the right age, has the right look and, after Percy Jackson, can probably navigate his way around some stunt work. I think we have to come to the realization that the next Spider-Man is probably going to be a young actor we're not very familiar with, so why not this kid?
