Taylor Lautner Rumor of Spider-Man



Who will play the young Peter Parker?
We've reported on the rumors that Robert Pattinson could be up for the role of the younger Spider-Man, but the role is still very much up for grabs. Word is that Robert Pattinson may be a bit too old for the high school age Peter Parker, so who should play him? Now we're hearing Taylor Lautner and Zac Efron may be up for the role. Who do you think would be best?

With all of the hot young stars around today, it shouldn't be too difficult to find the perfect fit for a young Peter Parker. And I can't really see many celebrities turning the role down. Though many people are up in arms about the sudden changing of the new Spider-Man movie (i.e. getting rid of Tobey Maguire), I have a feeling most people will still be on board for the movie.

According to a source, "The buzz in Hollywood is all about R-Patz as the hot, young thing being lined up to fill Tobey Maguire's shoes. It would be a hard act to follow as fans were traumatised at the news Tobey was going. His mild-mannered portrayal as Peter Parker and the transformation to Spider-Man kept millions of fans in the cinemas for the box-office smash. He also had great chemistry with Kirsten Dunst, who plays love interest Mary Jane."

But the source doesn't actually believe Robert Pattinson will really be the one: "I don't know what the chances are to be honest. I assume they're pretty slim. It's a long-shot but if it came down to it, it'd be a dream come true." I agree it's probably slim Robert will get the role, especially now that Zac Efron and Taylor Lautner seem to be in the running. Allegedly Jake Gyllenhaal is up for the role as well; but if Robert Pattinson is too old, wouldn't Jake be too?

Another source has said, "According to our buds at IESB, Spider-Man producers have met with Taylor Lautner but we do not know for what..." Taylor Lautner has a much different look than Toby Maguire, so it could be hard to believe such a big change in appearance took place from Peter Parker's high school days, but I'm sure there are ways around it.

I personally think Zac Efron would make the best Spider-Man, though I'd love to see Taylor Lautner in the role. Who do you think will finally land it?
