First, a disclaimer — I don’t believe this, considering there’s absolutely no primary sources on any of this. But maybe you’ll enjoy the lulz or something. Then again, I thought the same thing when I heard about Sony rebooting this franchise, so you never know, right?
A couple of gossip sites, including Daily Fill, are reporting that Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson could be on the short list to play the all-new, all-younger Peter Parker in the 2012 Spider-Man film.

Other names that Daily Fill used were Michael Cera (I just felt a great disturbance in the Force typing that, as if millions of fans suddenly cried out in terror, and then were suddenly silenced) or Chace Crawford (a name I’ve seen pop up a couple of times in regards to this, actually). What say you, Rama readers? Who would you pick to play your friendly neighborhood webslinger?
