Chris Zylka Cast as Flash Thompson in ‘Spider-Man’?
Posted on Monday, November 22nd, 2010 by Peter Sciretta



Actor Chris Zylka responded to a tweet from a hometown friend congratulating him on being cast in Marc Webb‘s Spider-Man reboot. I know that sounds a bit speculative, but ComicBookMovie claims to have learbed that Zylka has been cast as Eugene Thompson in the upcoming 3D feature film.


Eugene is better known to comic book fans as Flash Thompson, a character created by writer Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko, first appearing in Amazing Fantasy #15 published in August 1962. According to wikipedia, the character is “a star high school football player and classmate of Peter Parker (secretly the superhero Spider-Man) who mercilessly bullies “Puny Parker.” On the other hand, Flash greatly admires Spider-Man, an irony in which Parker takes some gratification. After graduation, Flash joins the United States Army and is haunted by his combat experiences, leading to alcoholism. Later on in the series, Flash and Peter become friends.”

If true, Zylka joins a cast which includes Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker and Spider-Man (well, a couple stuntmen and many computers will also be Spider-Man) and then Rhys Ifans as the Lizard, Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben, presumably Sally Field as Aunt May, and Denis Leary as the father of Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone).

Zylka has had roles in Hannah Montana, Everybody Hates Chris, Cougar Town, 10 Things I Hate About You the television series, the made for television movie My Super Psycho Sweet 16 and the Gregg Araki movie Kaboom
