POLL: Who should play Spider-Man?
Posted by LiveFor on January 18, 2010
As we all know, the next Spider-Man film will be a reboot and is getting a new director plus a new Peter Parker. As it is going to be set back in his school days (they seem to be doing an Ultimate Spider-Man style reboot) we’ll probably need a younger face for the role – mind you this is Hollywood we are talking about so you never can tell who they’ll pick .
UPDATE: “Of course,” Webb told MTV News when asked if he was a fan of Spider-Man. “Stan Lee, big fan … love the ‘Ultimate [Spider-Man]‘ stuff.”
Name-dropping the Spidey co-creator and the “Ultimate Spider-Man” series that many (including Splash Page) have indicated as a potential source material for a “Spider-Man” reboot, Webb played coy on whether he was indeed among the favored directors for Peter Parker’s next big-screen adventure, he certainly didn’t seem opposed to the idea.
“How could you not be a fan of Peter Parker and Spider-Man?” he asked.
Would his “500 Days of Summer” star Joseph Gordon-Levitt make a good Peter Parker? He’s one of the choices in the poll below.
“Joseph Gordon-Levitt would make a good Meryl Streep — he can do anything,” laughed Webb.
Reluctant to tip his “Spider-Man” hat, Webb simply said, “I hope so,” when asked if we should expect an announcement regarding his next project any time soon. – Cheers to Pat for sending me the link – END OF UPDATE
