Who will be Spiderman?

As you all probably know, when Sam Raimi left Spiderman 4, so did Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, and pretty much everyone else that was previously involved with the franchise.  Then, Sony announced that they were going to give Spiderman a complete reboot and start from scratch.  I think it’s safe to say that I wasn’t the only one who was kind of upset by this.  Aside from the nightmare that Spiderman 3 was, I thought Spiderman and Spiderman 2 were great.  And then, to add insult to injury, Sony hires Marc Webb to direct?  Don’t get me wrong, I love me some (500) Days Of Summer, but what else has he done?  Are they seriously putting a comic book franchise in the hands of a former music video director who happened to have success with a romantic comedy?  But hey who am I to judge, right?  I’m certainly not getting paid millions of dollars to make these kinds of decisions.  Moving on, now there has been rumor after rumor about who will be Webb’s Peter Parker/Spiderman.  First, it was Zac Efron.  Then Jim Sturgess.  Then the obligatory rumor of Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.  Then, wait for it, Patrick Fugit.  None confirmed by Sony.  Then, a possible tiny light at the end of the casting tunnel.  Just last week it seemed “100% confirmed” to be Logan Lerman.  This too, however, was shot down by Sony.  Then, because the list of actors just has to grow, it’s been rumored to be Josh Hutcherson.  But this too has been unconfirmed.  Now, I don’t know about the rest of you, but all these casting rumors are not getting me excited about this movie.  If anything, I’m just getting annoyed.  Just pick an actor already.  And if all you’re trying to do is get more buzz for your film, Sony, then do all of us a favor and quit jerking around and just make a final announcement.  No more tip-toeing around.  Please!
