The narrowing down for the female lead in the upcoming Marc Webb-directed “Spider-Man” movie has begun.
Starting today and heading into the weekend, select actresses are meeting with Webb and new Spidey actor Andrew Garfield. In a departure from the Tobey Maguire-Kirsten Dunst movies, the love interest character is not Mary Jane.
What isn't clear is whether the actresses are auditioning to play Gwen Stacy, Parker’s other love interest in the comics (played by Bryce Dallas Howard in 2007's "Spider-Man 3") or some other new character. The script pages being given to the actresses have no name listed for the character.
