“Amazing Spider-Man 3” is Not In Production, Reported Casting Call a Scam

So the internet found itself massively confused when a casting call for Amazing Spider-Man 3 (Archive.org copy) was found online. The casting call listed Andrew Garfield as starring, and it made it seem like not only was Sony sticking with the (otherwise presumed outgoing) star of the franchise, but that ASM3 was going into immediate production (when even the most optimistic estimates wouldn’t see the film happening before 2018).

Well the reason that the casting call seems completely incongruous to everything we know about the goings on with in the Sony Spider-Man franchise is simple: The casting call is completely fake.

It turns out the “Bill Beckman Casting Agency” posting is likely a scam, and this was all just some attempt to defraud hopeful actors and actresses who might not know better.

The world has not turned upside down, don’t worry.

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
