Emma Roberts & Lily Collins: Spider-Man Female Leads?

Lily Collins and Emma Roberts are reportedly in the running for the female lead in Marc Webb‘s new Spider-Man movie!

THR reports that the love interest character for Andrew Garfield‘s Spidey is not Mary Jane – the ladies may be playing Gwen Stacy (played by Bryce Dallas Howard in Spider-Man 3) or a new character altogether!

Imogen Poots (who’s currently shooting a Fright Night remake), Ophelia Lovibond (Nowhere Boy and and Lily Collins (The Blind Side) are all said to be considered!

Also reportedly up for the role are Teresa Palmer (I Am Number Four) and Emma Roberts (Scream 4).

    I think this new spiderman cast are too young. Hollywood does this all the time. Using younger people to remake good movies thinking it’ll sell more but it’s usually horrible. They all look like teenagers. Unless the movie is set in high school it’s stupid.

    I agree. It looks like teenie bopper Spiderman. Maybe they should have just given the lead to Justin Beiber.

    At least, if they’re further F-ing X-Men in the A, they seem to be getting this one right.

    This Spider-Man reboot is back in Peter Parker’s high school days, so them looking too young is a good thing.

    @BEAN: …that’s because the “reboot” is being set in highschool. ahahahahahahaha.. they’re supposed to be highschool students. so if anything, the guy they cast as spider-man looks too old. looks like he graduated 10 years ago.

    please. i ask mark to do this movie right. ’cause i love the franchise. i love andrew. i hope whoever plays the leading lady would be IT.

    kristen, though a good actress, is just not MJ. and i’d be seriously disappointed if they’d make the same mistake again.
