Epstein has been cast as the Peter Parker/Spider-Man alternate and will play Saturday and Sunday matinee performances beginning Dec. 8 at the Foxwoods Theatre.
"Spider-Man may be an iconic American hero, but there is a lot of Canadian pride on our production team and we are delighted to welcome another Canuck into the fold," said Spider-Man lead producer Michael Cohl in a statement.
Inspired by over 40 years of Marvel comic books, Spider-Man, according to press notes, "follows the story of teenager Peter Parker, whose unremarkable life is turned upside-down when he's bitten by a genetically altered spider and wakes up the next morning clinging to his bedroom ceiling. This bullied science-geek suddenly endowed with incredible powers soon learns, however, that with great power comes great responsibility as villains put both his physical strength and strength of character to the test."
