I'd be cool with Amanda Seyfried as Gwen Stacy.

Personally, I'd rather they differentiated themselves from the Raimi films and actually have Gwen be Peter's first girlfriend this time around. Introduce Mary Jane as Peter's childhood friend, but save their relationship for future films.
if they want to be really different AND show fidelity to the comics, Liz Allen should be his romantic interest.

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Would a general audience know who Liz Allan was though? I don't mean to be snide but I think one of the reasons why Rami and the writers used Mary Jane over Gwen Stacy was that MJ was relevant to the comics currently and maybe more known by the general audience. Hell even my parents knew that MJ and Peter were married but that's because they have sons that have been following Spider-Man comics since they were three years old. Liz is not even a main character, she's a supporting character that is usually hooked up with Flash and then later marries Harry.

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

That's my point. Why would they use Liz? I see your point but you kind of brought up a secondary character known only to Spidey fans.

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

which is why she deserves some screen time.

Bendis used her a lot in USM. she became Firestar in the end before fucking Loeb drowned half of New York in Ultimatum.

I don't think they care about fidelity to the comics but that would be brave if they did that.

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

I will agree with the above comment. I just don't see Liz Allan as being a starring character in a movie when they already have MJ or Gwen to use.

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

As a casual SM fan (heh, that could be taken different ways) I'll say that while I think most people know who MJ is, and I had heard of Gwen before but couldn't really remember her place in the mythos, I have no idea who Liz is.

The search begins for Pete's love interest (Not Mary-Jane).

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Mary Elizabeth Winstead, the love interest in “Scott Pilgrim vs the World,” was in the arachnid web but sources say she has now fallen out.

These are not screentests, which usually involve some sort of dealmaking, but rather readings and meetings. Basically, it’s still early. And if none of these girls work out, don’t rule out another round of searching.
NOOOOO!!
