Is Robert Pattinson moving from vampires to Spider-Man?
He’s made his name as the world’s sexiest vampire, but could Robert Pattinson be ditching his fangs for some super hero style?
Word on the Hollywood grapevine is that the Twilight actor is leading the race to replace Tobey Maguire in the hit film franchise. Maguire and director Sam Raimi both announced that they were dropping out of development for Spider-Man 4 this week, after filming all three of the initial flicks together.
With Maguire gone, Pattinson has now emerged as a potential candidate to take on the Spidey role, but it’s believed he has competition from Michael Cera, star of Superbad and Juno.
Should the Brit actor sign up for Spider-Man, he would complete his Twilight filming commitments first. With Eclipse set for release this spring, there is just Breaking Dawn left in the saga, plus Pattinson has signed up to star in thriller Bel Ami, which starts filming next month.
