Geek Out!: Who will be the next Spider-Man?

Posted: 02:21 PM ET

Editor's note: Geek Out! posts feature the latest and most interesting in nerd-culture news. From sci-fi and fantasy to gadgets and science, if you can geek out over it, you can find it on Geek Out! Look for Geek Out! posts on CNN's SciTech blog.

The Hollywood Reporter has a list of potential actors to take over the role of Spider-Man in the new incarnation on the big screen. They include Jamie Bell, Alden Ehrenreich and Josh Hutcherson ("Zathura").

The good news? Zac Efron, one name that was floated, is not among them. The bad news? The names that are here don't exactly fill me with confidence, either. My reaction, in a word? Meh.

The reason Tobey Maguire worked so well as Spider-Man is because he worked so well as Peter Parker. He was so good in the role it will be hard to live up to that (I won't quite compare him to Christopher Reeve as Superman, but he was close).

What I fear is that the studio is looking for the next Taylor Lautner to guarantee that teen girls will show up on opening night alongside the Spidey faithful. Marc Webb, the director of the new movie, as well as "500 Days of Summer," is looking for unknowns for this role and I respect that. Of all of the people here, I think that Bell ("Billy Elliott") might fit the bill best. I just hope they remember that they're ultimately casting Peter Parker, not Spider-Man.

What do you think? Are you more impressed with the list of potential actors than I am? What qualities are you looking for in the new Spidey?

An interesting discussion is worth comment. There's no doubt that that you need to publish more about this issue, it might not be a taboo subject but typically people do not talk about such topics. To the next! All the best!!

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any solutions to help prevent content from being stolen? I'd truly appreciate it.

Thanks for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research on this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I am very glad to see such fantastic information being shared freely out there.

Citizen has an extensive collection of watches, mostly focusing on sports and also pilot watches. They are separated into 5 categories (Diving, Pilot, Efficiency, Ladies, Exec) which we'll take a better consider below. Among Citizen's latest designs is the Nighthawk, which is limited to only 300 items. The creation of this watch complies with the success of the previous year's Citizen Nighthawk bronze model, which sold out swiftly.

Citizen has an substantial collection of watches, mainly focusing on sports and also pilot watches. They are separated right into 5 groups (Diving, Pilot, Efficiency, Ladies, Executive) which we'll take a better look at below. One of Citizen Nighthawk newest models is the Argonautic Bronze TT, which is restricted to just 300 items. The development of this watch follows the success of the previous year's Citizen Nighthawk bronze version, which sold out quickly.

I and my friends were found to be checking the great items found on the website then all of the sudden got a terrible feeling I never thanked the blog owner for those techniques.

Our own sincere apologies for not saying thanks to sooner.

He got a tan over break. I used to tell him he was so pale he looked like a marshmallow. He hated that I compared him to food. I told him that's what he got for calling me caramel. It shut him up.
