Not only is Taylor Lautner not dead from a Cocaine overdose as was rumored this past weekend, but the wolf man from Twilight may have gotten the role of Spiderman according to the latest from Insiders in Hollywood.
Of course, those same sources had him dead just a day or two ago so we are awaiting confirmation by an official announcement from Marvel Comics.
It HAS been confirmed that Tobey Maguire has hung up his spandex Spidey suit, quit the very rigorous exercises, and will not return as Spider-Man when the fourth film based on the wall crawling, web-slinging hero hits cinemas in 2012, studio officials confirmed that it was so this morning.
The announcement came as a big surprise to many fans as Spiderman #4 had already been written and was planned for an early 2012 release.
The first three Spideys has grossed nearly two and a half billion dollars according to the studio.
Apparently there were serious arguments about how #4 was to be filmed and some of the people doing the first three are out.
Marvel Studios and Columbia Pictures say they are ready to proceed with a script written by James Vanderbilt in which hero Peter Parker returns to high school.
Personally, UP2 thinks that Taylor would make a great Spiderman. He has the looks and muscle but can he do a complicated character such as Peter Parker?
And how will John Cleese interpret the role of Aunt May in some flashbacks?
Keep watching here for any new updates.
