Imogen Poots, Ophelia Lovibond and Lily Collins are said to be in contention to play the love interest role in the upcoming reboot of the “Spider-Man” franchise for Sony Pictures reports Heat Vision.
One thing of note, the character of Mary Jane Watson (whom Kirsten Dunst played in the previous films) will NOT be the main love interest character for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield). It’s unsure if Parker’s other love interest from the comics, Gwen Stacy, or a new character will serve the purpose.
The trio join Teresa Palmer and Emma Roberts who have both already read for the part. Mary Elizabeth Winstead was also in contention but has apparently fallen out of the running.
Screen tests however aren’t underway yet so it’s likely other names will potentially join the list in coming weeks. Shooting on the film kicks off in December.
