Since news broke of the Spiderman reboot many names have been floated around for both the role of director and that of Peter Parker himself. Two that have really stuck out for me are Mark Webb and Joseph Gorden Levitt, director and star of (500) Days of Summer respectively. While I can imagine plenty of fan uproar at the suggestion of Mark Webb I believe his debut feature showed a strong visual style and real diversity. Levitt has recently shown through a varied spectrum of roles just have versatile an actor he is, far more than just the child star he started out as.
Speaking not as a Spiderman fanboy but as a film buff either of these two being attached to the new Spiderman project could really get me excited.
