Which Celebrity Would Make The Best Real-Life Spider-Man?

List Rules
Vote up the celebrity who best fits the bill for being a real-world Spider-Man.

Spider-Man! Spider-Man! Does whatever a spider can! But Spider-Man is so much more than just a web-slinging superhero. He's also a brilliant scientist, a wise-cracking comedian, an acrobatic machine, and a criminal-beating fighter, all while (usually) being in his teens and 20s in age.

Though we may not have a real-life Spider-Man just yet, we do have a number of real-world celebrities who come very close in their own ways. Here is a list of celebrities who are the closest we could find to all the traits we've come to love in Spider-Man. Vote up the celebrity you think fits the bill of Spider-Man the most!

    Xolo Mariduena

    Age: 20

    Birthplace: Los Angeles, California

    Most Spidey-Worthy Moment: As a karate master in training in 'Cobra Kai', Xolo is no stranger to beating up large swarms of bad guys. One particular fight has him outmatched  4-to-1 against a group of older kids, and yet he still comes out on top. Not bad for a kid without superpowers!

    Tanner Buchanan

    Age: 22

    Birthplace: Lima, Ohio

    Most Spidey-Worthy Moment: Another great fighter from 'Cobra Kai', Tanner Buchanan makes tough fights look easy. In one particularly long fight, his character fights throughout the school, landing the finishing blow by kicking his opponent off of the staircase. It's a takedown that Spider-Man himself would approve of.

    Most Spidey-Worthy Moment: Aside from being a wise-cracking jokester, Cole Sprouse also has the brains to be Spider-Man too. He is a scientist who specializes mostly in archeology and satellite imaging, and he also dabbles in photography just like Peter Parker.

    Age: 23

    Birthplace: Malibu, California

    Most Spidey-Worthy Moment: As the star of the 2010 'Karate Kid' remake, Jaden Smith knows his way around a fight. Most notably, he takes down his final opponent with a backflip-kick that even Spider-Man would be proud of.

    Alex Honnold

    Age: 36

    Birthplace: Sacramento, California

    Most Spidey-Worthy Moment: Alex Honnold is known for rock climbing large ascents free solo (without ropes). He was the first person to free solo climb El Capitan, which at 3,000 feet was regarded as the most dangerous free-solo climb ever. Even Spider-Man needs the help of his webs to climb buildings!

    Age: 34

    Birthplace: Rosario, Santa Fe, Argentina

    Most Spidey-Worthy Moment: Widely regarded as the best soccer player in the world, Lionel Messi is fast, aggressive, and has great aim with the ball. In terms of pure athleticism, Messi is one of the best out there, making him a great contender to keep up with the physicality required to be Spider-Man.
