View Full Version : Could This Be True?...Has Spider-Man Been Cast?

Posted by OK magazine some Spidey quotes :

Zac Efron to be the next Spider-Man.

Zac Efron is set for £9m pay day.

High School Musical star, Zac Efron will take over filming later this year.

Zac Efron will take over from current spidey Tobey Maguire.

Producers believe Zac Efron will bring a new fan base to Spider-Man.

OK magazine is reporting Efron is set to nab a whopping £9million pay day as he dons the trademark red & blue spandex as Spider-Man.

Their also saying the reboot movie is due to start shooting later this year and scheduled to be released in cinemas by 2012.

Spider-Man Tobey Maguire, 34, after quitting the franchise, a studio insider revealed: "After dumping Spidey, Tobey then came to the rescue by recommending that Zac should take over his role."

The Spider-Man Producers believe that Efron, 22, has a massive teen following, which will bring new fans to this new Spider-Man Ultimate reboot franchise with him starring as the red & blue spandex superhero and alter ego geeky Peter Parker.

They have also expressed interest in reuniting Efron with gal pal and co-starer of High School Musical fame, Vanessa Hudgens. She's hotly tipped to replace Dunst as Mary Jane, Peter Parkers love interest and their source added: "It would be a great coup to land her as well. The franchise would be revitalised and transformed by two of Hollywood’s most gifted and fast-rising young stars."

This sounds credible but I will wait until we get official confirmation.

So what do people think of Zack Efron as Peter Parker?

turning spidey into a douche for the sake of a fan base is fuckin retarded.
apparently they care less about legitimate fans.

co sign mummra, dunst is the second uglies bioootch on the planet!
Scarlett Johanssen (she was a red head in perfect score) or Danneel Harris would be good imo but its just me

they should title this flick Spider Man - Brand New Day

I never liked the spiderman series, I watched the first one and that was that. I understand PParker needs to be a nerd, but Toby's face just angers me he's so fucking dorky. There's cooler nerds out there.

02-02-2010, 09:59 PM
allot of comic fans are gonna be amd about tis

02-02-2010, 10:27 PM
I never liked Toby Maguire as Peter Parker/Spider-man, the guy has a voice that sounds like it's permanently stuck on puberty. I just put up with it and moved on, but Spider-man should never of had such a stupid voice.

As for Zac Efron I just don't see why he is sucha bad choice. So what if he starred in High School Musical, so what if he has a built in tween fanbase, the guy is an actor, his job is to bring something different to each role he does. You guys are acting as if he would break into song in the middle of the film or something.

The guy actually resembles the Peter Parker from the ultimate comics besides his emo haircut (zac efron not peter parker) he also has the physeek for spider-man.


People are saying that they should cast a proper geek for the role, well if they did that do you know who we would most likely get?...MICHAEL FUCKING CERA!

this is a joke right?

02-09-2010, 01:48 PM
Im taking it as a rumour only, especially since this story hasn't been picked up anywhere else but I don't think Zac Efron is as bad a choice as everyone else is making it out to be.

02-09-2010, 01:50 PM
he isnt a bad choice @ all but the fact that producers only want him to bring in a preteen fanbase saddens me,they preety much saying fuck, the core fans the way i see it

I don't think that is soley the case, the spider-man franchise is popular enough with the fanbase it's already managed to establish. The spider-man movies are some of the highest grossing films of the last decade, the tween market wouldn't really make much of an impact in the grander scheme of things.

makes sense

02-10-2010, 12:57 PM
the first film will be a miss, the sequels wont even exist, i can't get mad for tobey and raimi for leaving. the script was probably garbage....i heard they where trying to make gwen stacy a charecter called the vultress..for part 4. that shyt rite there a lone is reason to leave producton.

praise the almitey W

we don't need ppl to gay up spiderman so if ppl keep fucking movies up im gonna have to interveine. BOYCOTT!!!!

02-10-2010, 03:27 PM
i cant believe that not only do i think Zac Effron aint a bad choice, but i actually agree with Tauro..LMAO

it just kinda makes sense...my doubts arent regarding the choice of actor..theyre more about the writing and probable, market satisfying direction the movie will go in.
