With Sony's recent announcement that the new Spider-Man film would be moving forward without Tobey Maguire, many are wondering who will play Spidey in the fourth installment of the series. If we believe the rumors, Robert Pattinson is in talks to play the Marvel Comics character, but would he really be a good fit?
According to Sony reps, Spider-Man 4 will follow Peter Parker in his teenage years. The future hero is still in high school and "dealing with both contemporary human problems and amazing super-human crises."
Well, the British actor has certainly mastered those by playing Edward Cullen! Rob can also pass as a high schooler -- he's aced the forever-young vampire thing -- and the American accent is no obstacle, but we're still not sold on RPatz as a young Spidey. Also, the movie is slated for a Summer 2012 release, so we're wondering if Rob could even fit another blockbuster into his busy Twilight filming and promotion schedule.
Who else could be a contender for the iconic role? The rumor mill has named Michael Cera as a possibility, but what about other celebs like Lucas Till or David Henrie? You tell us...
