    if they want to be really different AND show fidelity to the comics, Liz Allen should be his romantic interest.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I'm all for not using MJ...and quite frankly I've always thought Rami should have used Gwen in the first film. I think Imogen Poots would make a great Felicia Hardy (understand that she was good in "Centurion" which I want to check out) and Emma Roberts might be a little young to be playing the romantic interest of a 26 year old actor but maybe I'm a little old fashioned.
