With all the buzz surrounding the next installment of the "Spider-Man" movies, it seems that "Spider-Man 4" and "Spider-Man 5" are ready to go on full steam ahead giving fans high hopes. However, before fans could cheer up over the reports, a downer came rushing in. The latest report surfacing on the virtual world suggested that the superhero dressed in red and blue skin tight costume may be getting a new fresher and younger face.

Breaking out the story firstly was Latino Review which noted that producer Laura Ziskin and Grant Curtis have suggested that Tobey Maguire, the depicter of Peter Parker a.k.a. Spider-Man in the previous three installments of "Spider-Man" series is more likely to be replaced. As for the list of the possible candidates, the site put out two names, "Almost Famous" star, Patrick Fugit, and the co-star of Jackie Chan in "The Forbidden Kingdom", Michael Angarano. Still, it is stressed that the offering of the role has yet to be done.

Nevertheless, concerning who from the two getting more chance on portraying the Marvel's superhero, many put their bets on Fugit. The 25-year-old made his breakout in the filming industry when he landed the lead role of William Miller, the aspiring rock-and-roll journalist in Cameron Crowe's "Almost Famous". From there, he continues to work in some notable movies, including "White Oleander", "Spun", "Saved!" and "Wristcutters: A Love Story". Regardless of who to play the superhero, "Spider-Man 4" itself is expected to be arriving in theaters in the span of 2010 to 2011.

not happy that Tobey McGuire will be replaced. I think the same 3 Toby, Kirsten, and James need to come back. Any replacements of these 3, I think the movie will flop.
