Which actress will get to play Spider-Man’s love interest?

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: The inevitable discussion – since we now know Andrew Garfield will fill the role of everyone’s favorite Web slinger – is whom will Spider-Man romance in Marc Webb’s announced reboot?

For starters, it won’t be Mary Jane Watson. (Thank God!)

I never understood why Sam Raimi whiffed on the chance to properly handle the classic Gwen Stacy storyline in his first “Spider-Man” effort. He has a high-school aged Spider-Man. He has the Green Goblin. And he ha a love interest precariously perched on a Manhattan bridge. Except Raimi used Mary Jane Watson and not Peter Parker’s first true love, Gwen. Missed opportunity.

Webb, meanwhile, may be getting off on the right foot as The Playlist reports that Watson will not be Peter’s squeeze in the film (though the site can not confirm that it’s Gwen we’ll be watching).

As for the actresses vying for the role? Imagine every starlet under the age of 25. Imogen Poots, Teresa Palmer, Emma Roberts and Mary Elizabeth Winstead are contenders. If I remember correctly, “Lovely Bones” star Saoirse Ronan once tweeted that she had auditioned. Needless to say, it’s a coveted role. I hope Webb finds the perfect person to balance Garfield’s young hero.

Once we know for sure who Spidey’s love interest will be, we’ll post it. She’ll likely be cast soon, as filming begins in December ahead of a July 3, 2012 release date.
