Philip Seymour Hoffman as Venom in Spider-Man Reboot!? And Female Lead Update


Hey Gang! The casting for Marc Webb's Spider-Man 3D reboot continues! And there's a crazy unconfirmed rumor that Philip Seymour Hoffman is in talks to take on the role of Venom in the film, which obviously means they are also looking at brining back Venom, to try and do it right this time around?. There is no other information regarding this so it should be interesting to see how this rumor plays out. How crazy would it be if it turns out being true!?

Deadline also reports that a couple more names have been added to the list of possible female leads to play opposite Andrew Garfield in the movie. the actresses include Dianna Agron, who stars in the hit series Glee as well as Georgina Haig, the star of the Ben C. Lucas-directed Wasted on the Young.

The other names on the list of contenders are Zombieland and Easy A star Emma StoneAlice in Wonderland star Mia Wasikowska, and Dominique  McElligott, from the 2009 Sony Pictures Classics release Moon. As of right now it's down to these five ladies. One will take the role of Gwen Stacy and one will be cast as Mary Jane Watson, as we speculated earlier. 

I'm sure Sony and Webb will make their decision soon.

Who would you like to see in the role of Gwen Stacy and Mary Jane Watson? Also, what are your thoughts on the possibility of Hoffman playing Venom?
