Phillip Seymour Hoffman As Venom!?! Top Five Spider-Girl Contenders

Posted by October 1, 2010 Comment

Before we get on to the frankly astonishing Venom-Hoffman news, let’s have another round of Guess the Spider-Girl. Previously: every young woman signed with a talent agency was going up for either Gwen Stacy, Mary Jane Watson, or both. Tonight, we have top five contenders, courtesy of Deadline. Right then – names and faces, in alphabetical order.

Dianna Agron

Dominique McElligott

Georgina Haig

Emma Stone

Mia Wasikowska

So, if natural hair colour has anything to do with it, Emma Stone is our Mary Jane Watson? I’d certainly be happy about that.

Now, this isn’t the first time I’ve seen Ms. McElligott linked to the role of Gwen Stacy. Back in August, the site Sci-Fi Mafia reported that she’d actually been cast in the role and that prompted me to do some asking around… to no avail, I’m afraid, but it looks now like they were either onto something or made a lucky guess.

Right then. Hoffman. Venom. What’s that all about about? Well, in the same Deadline story as the lady list is the following sentence:

Early unconfirmed talk: they want to bring back Venom and they are looking at Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Unconfirmed? Too right – but what an amazing notion. You’ll have to tell me… does it make even a tiny drop of sense?
