If you have not heard about the news that Sony Pictures has scrapped the plan for Spider-Man 4 and instead going for the reboot button for a new fresh air, where were you? It comes to no surprise because of politics in ideas and opinions, director of three previous Spidey movie Sam Raimi and Sony were in head-butt situation over the script and what's not. For sure, those hopes to see Sam Raimi making another Spider-Man movie with the familiar faces like Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst will not materialize. Read here, here and here for more.

So, Empire Online has been kind enough to make this. Well, as always, I'm not the kind of person who loves to predict what is going to happen. I am not a fortune-teller and I am not so into fortune cookie either. But, let's ask yourself this - DO YOU NEED ANOTHER SPIDER-MAN THAT GOES TO HIGH SCHOOL (AGAIN)?

What did the fortune teller back at Empire Online told you? Oh, here are top ten choices for the next Peter Parker.

High School Musical lead and considered as studio frontrunner. Young, charming but too pretty for Peter Parker role.

You have seen in Across The Universe and 21. Good actor and have great fond for his role in Sony's 21 but he is 32.

Current choice for planned Broadway Spider-Man. Not a familiar face you may know but this option is good too.

As Kyle Reese in Terminator Salvation and Chekov in Star Trek. Impressive year for this lad but I hope he don't speak Russian if he is indeed Peter Parker.

Who else if he is not Harry Potter? Still young and will probably need to drop his British accent for the role, and also he is too short for Peter Parker.

Edward of Twilight may venture into Spidey? Possible and since he is the biggest young people draw at the moment. The issues were his hair and pale face.

Tobey Maguire's brother in Brothers and also will be bigger in Prince of Persia. His name appeared when Maguire wasn't able to return for Spider-Man 2 because of back injury. But he is too old for a reboot.

He will kicking ass in Kick-Ass. His role in Kick-Ass looks the same with the reboot settings - in a high school and as a superhero.

He is from (500) Days of Summer and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. If Marc Webb is in, I think he will be too. He is versatile - romantic (Summer), action (G.I. Joe) and funny (3rd Rock From The Sun) but he is approaching 30.

Bridge to Terabithia, Cirque Du Freak and Journey to the Centre of the Earth star. He's 18 and what an appropriate age for the reboot. But again, he is even shorter than Harry Potter or maybe his growth spurt has accelerated.

So, here are the top ten guessing names for a possible replacement for Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker. What say you? Yet still, is it necessary to have another Spider-Man movie that deals with high school?
