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 4.3.2.1) 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).

Emma Roberts? Please no.

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.

Why not Emma Stone? She could be the perfect MJ!!!

@BEAN:

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

# 8

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

@JC: lol completely agree

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.

LOVE EMMA ROBERTS!

PLEASE CHOOSE LILY COLLINS. SHE IS AWESOME

lily collins is awesome. choose her please

Lily collins would be perfect. way better than emma for sure

why only white girls?

@theit:
Because Rhianna is busy making Battleship be stupid.

I like Emma Roberts… But I don’t know if Spider man is the right movie for her.

emme roberts or lilly collins? nooo please
flop

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.

is it a teen movie ? emma robert looks 15 and lilly collins looks 18

Dominique McElligott Cast As Gwen Stacy In The ‘Spider-Man’ Reboot?

many rumors says that Dominique are Cast as Gwen for the reboot and elena satine???????????????????????????????

@Courtney:

None of the actresses listed would be the best choice for the role. I was upset to learn that Mary-Elizabeth Winstead was no longer being considered. She would have been the best. Emma Roberts would have been an excellent choice…if the the actor who would play Spider-man was several years younger than Andrew Garfield. Had they gone with the a younger actor for the role, Emma would have been the best choice.

But frankly none of them would be good candidates. It’s okay to go with an unknown, but people should know them. I hope they consider more actresses as well. However, I hope we can find out soon. It shouldn’t take as long as the casting for the lead in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

Well, if I had to choose between the five I would go with Emma. Teresa Palmer has done way too many action movies. The rest don’t look the part. Hopefully they will cast the right person. Emma is very talented and I think they can make the whole age difference work out.

Emma Roberts. She should play the role. The rest wouldn’t be the best choices. I hope she gets it, but for some reason I don’t think that she will land the role. I wish they could have considered other actresses as well like Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Deborah Ann Woll, Emma Stone, Katie Cassidy, Leighton Meester, Amber Heard, Ashley Greene, Hayden Paniettiere, Mischa Barton, Emmy Rossum, Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens, Evan Rachel Wood, Alison Lohman, Olivia Thrilby, Kristen Bell, Amanda Crew, Briana Evigan, Sophia Bush, Aly Michalka, Michelle Trachtenberg, Anna Kendrick, Sophie Lowe, Sara Paxton, Hilary Duff.

Why aren’t any of the names listed being considered? I mean they are not casting good actresses for the love interests in all these superhero movies. Like Captain America, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, The new X-Men reboot, and now this? Come on!

@Really!:

Emma Stone would be a very good choice. So would Deborah Ann Woll. Even if it isn’t for Mary-Jane. I don’t know why these and many other actresses are not being considered.
