    Did You Hear the One About Robert Pattinson as Spider-Man?

    For the time being, the only part of Spider-Man that's gonna sparkle in the sunlight is his web.

    Despite unsourced and ultimately unfounded reports that Robert Pattinson would be taking over arachnophile duties from Tobey Maguire in the re-reboot of the Marvel franchise, E! News has learned that no such deal has been struck.

    So, sorry, Twi-hards. Rob may make plenty of things tingle, but your Spidey sense shouldn't be one of them. Not yet, anyway.

    While Sony declined to comment on the report, an insider close to the production had the following to say:

    "Casting will only begin after a director is chosen. That has not happened yet. Sounds more like an optimistic float by a manager or agent who has nothing to lose by throwing a name into the mix."

    Well, it's not just a name...

    But let's get ahead of the curve now: Kristen Stewart for Mary Jane, anybody?
