I've decided that this is his Spider-Man jump  

Can't you just tell he's prepping his web-shooters?

I bring it up because Stan Lee, creator of Spider-Man, said this to the Washington Post Comic Riffs blog when asked whom he would cast in the reboot:

"I don't know enough young actors," he acknowledges. "I'm not up on them. I did see Zac Efron on the Oscars show -- he'd definitely be fine."

If I were comic book nerd/Spider-Man fan Zef, I'd be doing Spider-Man jumps for joy all over the place.

Of course, none of this means he'd actually be cast. And I'm still not convinced it is even a good idea, having no idea what the script is like nor the director's vision for it. Maybe most importantly is whether it would involve going back to high school which is, at this point, a step back.

But no matter what, it's pretty cool that Stan Lee called out Mr. 'It would be a dream come true to be Spider-Man' Efron.

I'm posting this just cause the colors are kind of right and if you tilt your head a bit and squint just soooooo... you can maybe see an unmasked Spider-Man, lol:

That first picture is scaring me.

I'm still unconvinced, for the same reasons as you. Plus one: I love Spiderman, and Peter Parker is also one of my role model (yes I'm a geek too. whaaaat.) and I love Zac (duh). So I think this would just blow my mind a wee bit too much for me to handle.

Is the line under peter parker a different question?
Or does his role models include zombies and sharks too?

i'm still so conflicted about this!

i think it has more to do with the fact that i think its ways too soon for this franchise to have a reboot.

i actually think i could be a great role for zac, given the material and his love of it. i wouldn't consider him going "back to high school" a step back as tobey was 27 when he did the first one.

actors play teens well into their 20s. the potential negative is that is simply too soon for this franchise to be done over.

niice. i hope zac hears the stan lee quote -- he'd probably flip out like sheldon on big bang theory.

that first picture feels like decades ago.

Do you think the studio/someone legitimately attached to the film (a director, etc) will dispel casting rumors sooner than later? I'm not sure I have an opinion on the matter one way or another, but I'm curious whose names are truly in the running and those that are simply heresay/media driven 'picks' and nothing more.

the only serious thing they've dispelled, as far as i recall, is that logan was not actually in talks when he said he was (though his fanboys will insist otherwise basically he got caught being vague and ended up being misleading).

really all they've said is they are casting a wide net and have a long list of people to consider. other than that, i don't think anyone has any specifics or scoops because i think it's too early yet.

tbh, zac might cost too much if their budget is as low as people are saying it is. plus i think strategically z's biggest concern career-wise is if he has to go back to high school. it's pretty unlikely for him but you never know.

I'm not saying he couldn't 'ugly-up', because I would love to see him do a role like that, but isn't he too good-looking for Spiderman? I think he'd make a great Harry, aka Green Goblin- BADDIE!!
I too am not sure about this role, depending what/how they plan to do it, I think it might be risky, but never say never and all that...
