We seriously hope that this is true!
Any film that has her in it, even if it's just as a minor character, instantly becomes more awesome!
Although Mary Jane Watson has been cut from the upcoming Spider-Man reboot, there are now rumblings that director Marc Webb has approached Zooey Deschanel to play the part of Betty Brant, J.J. Jameson's secretary at The Daily Bugle!
Although the original Sam Raimi series featured Elizabeth Banks as the character in an extremely supporting role, Webb allegedly wants to expand the part significantly for his interpretation!
A source explains:
"He wants a strong performer to carry the role and Zooey fits the bill perfectly. The role is hers if she wants it.”
Meanwhile, John Slattery and Sam Elliot are both major contenders for the role of Jameson.
Wow! Let's hope this isn't bull shiz!
With the cast these guys are pulling in, dare we say that we're getting a little excited for this movie??
What do U think?? Do U want to see Zooey in Spider-Man??
