Rumor: Zooey Deschanel to Play Spider-Man‘s Betty Brant

Showbiz Spy is reporting that Spider-Man director Marc Webb hopes to reteam with 500 Days of Summer star Zooey Deschanel in the upcoming Marvel Comics reboot.

Deschanel would play the role of Betty Brant, secretary to Daily Bugle publisher J. Jonah Jameson. The character of Brant was previously played by Elizabeth Banks in the previous Sam Raimi directed Spider-Man films.

This role could amount to little more than a cameo or it could be another potential love interest for Spider-Man, played by Andrew Garfield in the upcoming film.

I’m firmly in the pro-Zooey Deschanel camp and 500 Days of Summer is a movie that never gets old for me. Any reunion between Webb and Deschanel is a plus in my books.
