    What, Shia LaBeouf's not up for the role of Spidey?

    :lol 

    Yikes, calm down everyone! I was just kidding!! But still, he'd probably do better than Tobey Maguire did. Heh, just imagine Shia as Spider-Man web slinging away from Doctor Octopus. "Nononononononono!!!"

    All I can say is that I hope the new team gives Venom the treatment he so rightfully deserves, and by that, I mean not making him show up towards the very end only to be killed off. Yeah, thanks a bunch, Sam Raimi. :mad

    You know who I would really like to see play Spidey? Donald Glover (Troy from Community). Out of the contenders I would probably like Jamie Bell the best but I'm also not that familiar with most of them besides Bell and Hutcherson

    SM is too big a property for them to try something so bold.

    I can picture Jamie Bell or Frank Dillane playing Spiderman. The others, not so much.

    Some fault is Sony's for forcing the biggest* Spidey villain in there. The way he turned out in SM3 is 100% Raimi's doing though.


















    *Like it or not Venom outstrips most of Spidey's rogues outside Green Goblin and Doc Ock in a popularity contest.

    Of those 5, Josh Hutcherson would have to be my top pick for the role. I can also see Frank Dillane making a good Peter Parker. The other 3... not so much.

    Even though the article says Logan Lerman isn't up for the role, personally, I think he'd be a great choice.

    I think only Frank Dillane, Josh Hutcherson, and maybe Jamie Bell could work.

    Jaime Bell. The others don't invoke any sort of Peter Parker feel at all. Even if they acted the part, I'd be looking like, "that's not Peter Parker."

    All joking aside, he wouldn't make a bad Peter Parker.

    Spiderman, I dunno.

    Put the guy from Twilight in as Peter Parker. Then watch the news for mass nerd suicides.

    You see, why couldn't they settle differences. I would love Spidey 4, I think a reboot will butcher it. Villains???? Granted there are so many, but the iconic ones are used.

    That's what I was thinking. Casting Robert Pattinson as Peter Parker would be hilarious.
