With the latest news about "Spider-Man 4" biting the dust, comes a huge vacancy in the Hollywood film franchise world. Sam Raimi is gone. So are the franchise's stars Tobey Maguire and Kristen Dunst.
Sony has tweeted the depressing deets on their Twitter site. But let's not wallow in this setback. Let's help the studio along and start rebuilding with the lead role.
Which hot young actor should be the new Spider-Man?
How about Twilight" star Robert Pattinson, or his vampire costar Kellan Lutz? Maybe "Gossip Girl" hottie Chace Crawford? Or budding film star Zac Efron?
Or someone else like Lucas Till, Nick Jonas, Beau Mirchoff, Charles Carver, Nico Tortorella, Jared Padalecki, Channing Tatum, Tristan Wilds, Dustin Milligan, Ed Westwick (maybe as a villain), Matt Lanter or Josh Henderson?
We can even let Taylor Lautner train them. Dude knows a little something about adding muscle to his career, having bulked up for "New Moon" and recently signed to play superhero "Max Steel."
Spiderman will take a while to retool, according to the studio so don't expect a film any time soon.
In the meantime, you'll have to make do with Julie Taymor's Broadway version, which will star Evan Rachel Wood and Alan Cuming (no, not as Spidey).
