It was announced months ago that the new “Spider-Man” reboot would feature Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker. But which lovely young Hollywood starlet should play his love interest?
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the character will not be Mary Jane Watson, who was played by Kirsten Dunst in the recent “Spider-Man” trilogy. Gwen Stacy, a character introduced in “Spider-Man 3” and played by Bryce Dallas Howard, is still a possibility, or it could be some unknown female character.
THR revealed several names in talks for the part — Imogen Poots, Ophelia Lovibond, Lilly Collins, Teresa Palmer and Emma Roberts.
Zap2it would like to offer a few casting suggestions of our own:
Lyndsy Fonseca is about to take to the small screen to kick some butt on “Nikita.” We also enjoyed her in “Kick-Ass.” Could you see her opposite Garfield?
Speaking of “Kick-Ass,” Hit Girl Chloe Moretz was really the female highlight of that movie — alas, we fear she is too young for the unnamed “Spider-Man” love interest. But we still love her nonetheless. If only it was a movie due out in 2014.
Dianna Agron from “Glee” is another popular Zap2it choice. She’s sweet on the outside, but we know she has some fight in her. And if there was a musical scene, they’d be all set.
“Pretty Little Liars” has burst onto the scene as the TV hit of the summer — so why not give those girls a chance? We think adorable Lucy Hale would be right up “Spider-Man’s” alley.
The no-nonsense Jess from “Friday Night Lights” Jurnee Smollett is another girl we think should get a chance. Her 1000-watt smile and cheekbones that could cut glass would make her more than enough for Peter Parker to handle.
Rooney Mara is an unknown who
isn’t doing anything right now just got cast as Lisbeth Salander in “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” But we actually think her sister Kate Mara would make an excellent comic book heroine.
What do you think, “Spider-Man” fans? Who is your pick?
