Robert Pattinson May Be the Next Spider-Man in Today’s Totally Sketchy R-Pattz Rumor

By: Celebuzz / January 14, 2010

Ready for some really intriguing but completely questionable Robert Pattinson dish? Of course you are!

With Tobey Maguire and director Sam Raimi on the outs from the Spider-Man franchise and a series reboot in the offing, word is that New Moon heartthrob R-Pattz is being tapped to take on the web-slinging role in the fourth Spider-Man flick.

Hmm; our Spidey sense is tingling…no, wait, that’s just our nostrils twitching at the stench of probable BS.

Still, it’s an interesting proposition. On one hand, the highly unlikely casting move would make Spider-Man British, which just doesn’t seem right. On the other hand, we’re betting Rippy would look pretty sweet in the blue-and-red tights.

Frankly, we’re baffled—mostly, at the fact that this rumor is even circulating. So we’re opening the floor to you, dear readers. Would R-Pattz make a good Spider-Man? Let us know in the comments section!
