Fans of superhero movies have been buzzing about KJ Apa. Fan edits have shown KJ Apa as a possible Wally West, Barry Allen and even Johnny Storm. Nothing is set in stone, but with all of Marvel’s upcoming movies and TV shows, KJ Apa could actually one day find himself in the Marvel Cinematic Universe opposite Tom Holland’s Spider-Man. You never know!
KJ Apa has played Archie Andrews on Riverdale since 2017. Meanwhile, Spider-Man actor Tom Holland has had his hands full with Avengers and Spider-Man: Far From Home. Aside from Marvel, Tom Holland has been busy with other movies as well. Coming up on December 25, 2019, Tom Holland will star alongside Will Smith in Spies in Disguise. Tom Holland will also be in Chaos Walking with Daisy Ridley, but that film does not yet have a release date.
While KJ Apa stated that Holland wasn’t his favorite Spider-Man, he still praised his performance, calling him a “legend.” He also stated his massive respect for Tom Holland, but he did not hesitate to cite Tobey Maguire as his favorite Spider-Man.

Here is the official synopsis for The Lion King:
Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny.

The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
Directed by Jon Favreau from a script written by Jeff Nathanson, The Lion Kingstars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.
The Lion King will be released in theaters on July 19, 2019.
