One of These Actresses Might Be Spider-Man’s New Girlfriend

Lily Collins.

New Spider-Man Andrew Garfield and director Marc Webb are starting to meet with actresses to play the webslinger's love interest (who won't be Mary Jane) in the rebooted franchise. The front-runners are reportedly a bunch of up-and-coming, slightly indie chicks: Lily "Daughter of Phil" Collins, Imogen Poots, Ophelia Lovibond, Emma Roberts, The Sorcerer's Apprentice's Teresa Palmer, and Scott Pilgrim's Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Based solely on their wondrous names, we are rooting for Poots or Lovibond. [Heat Vision/HR]
