Could Zooey Deschanel show up in Marc Webb's Spider-Man?

Nov. 10, 2010by:

Will another adorable and beautiful woman join the SPIDER-MAN reboot?

You may know her, her name is Zooey Deschanel.

No, they aren't magically bringing Mary Jane in for Deschanel. Actually she might be J. Jonah Jameson's secretary, Betty Brant. An insider said this about the role, "Betty was a minor character in the previous Spidey movies but Marc has big plans for her. He wants a strong performer to carry the role and Zooey fits the bill perfectly. The role is hers if she wants it."

But would Deschanel want to be a part of this film? She did work with Webb for 500 DAYS OF SUMMER.

Early on it was said that Peter Parker would be involved in some sort of love triangle. Everyone assumed that it would be between Gwen Stacy and MJ. Accompanying the news that Mary Jane is no longer an option, it was also mentioned that Peter would only have one love interest. So for right now I'm going to say, no triangle. However, Parker and Brant did date for a bit. Brant was Peter's first real girlfriend. She always had an eye for Peter in Raimi's films, but nothing was ever pursued. I wouldn't start now.

I think Deschanel would be a lovely addition. Shooting on the film starts next month so she has a short time to decide. On that note, cast Jameson already!

Awesome news! Hopefully she signs on. Zooey is a welcome addition to any movie.

Zooey and I have a complicated relationship. She seems very sweet and she's undoubtedly an incredibly attractive, cute and "kooky" girl. If she asked me out on a date I wouldn't even let her finish the sentence before shouting, "YES!" in her face (which would probably frighten her off, but whatever). I loved her in (500) DAYS OF SUMMER, she was perfect for the role of Summer. But, having said all that, I generally can't stand her as an actress. She's just a little... weird. To use the same

To use the same analogy I used in a Cast This column a few weeks back, it's like she's living in Wonderland in her head and just happens to keep stumbling onto film sets.

I dunno, I love Zooey, but I'm still on the fence with this whole reboot. They can hire all the talent they want, but I still feel like this could bomb.

I completely agree. My entire feeling on this is 'meh'. I'm sure not going to go out of my way to see a movie I've already seen. Until I hear something really new come out of this, I just don't care enough to watch it in the theaters. On dvd, or cable, maybe. Depends what else is on.

Concerning the Tidbit: No. Any non-attraction exhibited against her is not expressed by an actual human being - an alien or a robot perhaps, but not a human.

Loved her in Almost Famous and even more in All the Real Girls. I found her to be going through the motions in 500 Days, where she played a watered down version of the same archetype she played in All the Real Girls, only without conviction. I blame Marc for that.

Yes. I'm not attracted to Zooey. The first time I ever saw her was in The Happening. It's the equivalent of meeting your girlfriend for the first time on the streets of Manhattan as a prostitute

i accept my minuses in advance

she is one of the least talented people in Hollywood. Her acting sucks, she's instant death on the screen, and her music is worse. Katy Perry is the hotter version of her, so there's really no reason for her to exist anymore. In conclusion, she sucks, and 500 Days of Summer was only good b/c of Webb's direction and JGL's acting.

She has the worst monotone voice ever. And she only has one facial expression ever.
But she's very hot. Very hot. (I agree about the Katie Perry thing though)

she's cute, but since KP is hotter, theres no reason for me to give a crap about Zooey anymore. She's awful.

She's hot--I can't say much about her acting. Can't see her as Betty Brant really either.

She should be...

Felicia Hardy!
set her up for the inevitable sequel this movie is going to get.
But I love Zooey and no matter her role. I'm glad she's in it.

I would support this movie if Zooey was cast. I was borderline before, but now with Zooey in the mix, I am all for this reboot.

NOT HOT

Sorry, the stupid hipster chick look is unattractive. If she didn't try to milk the quirky offbeat girl next door maybe she could be hot.

I'm sorry sir, but you clearly have no idea what a "hipster chick" is. Miss Deschanel is far from one.

In the comics, Betty was Peter's first real girlfriend.

Sweet! A smokin' hot Betty Brant in the original films AND the reboots. Can some comic fans shed light on how she would eventually have a big part? Does she eventually become Goblin-Cat or something?

Nothing too big happens to Betts--she was married to Ned Leeds, who was killed and framed as being the original Hobgoblin..

She's so hot.

So's her big sister. My interest in this reboot just shot up (that's not the only thing that just shot up! Wink wink. ZING! *sigh*) a whole freaking lot.
