While the role of Peter Parker in Marc Webb’s Spider-Man reboot ultimately went to Andrew Garfield (The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus), other young actors screen tested for the role. Among them was Josh Hutcherson (The Kids Are All Right) and his screen test has leaked online. No one who watches this should say after seeing this video, “Now I see why he didn’t get the part!” since what this test really demonstrates is the fight choreography. It’s the same set-up as in the first movie (Flash Thompson and his goons are about to bully Peter), but the fight scene is far more elaborate. I haven’t read the script, but I wonder if Peter has already become accustomed to his superpowers at this point in the movie. However, this scene may not even be in the movie as it was originally had Peter as a high-schooler (Hutcherson is 17), but is now set in college for the 26-year-old Garfield.
Hit the jump to check out the video. Spider-Man is slated to open in 3D on July 3, 2012.
