Meet Spidey's New Leading Lady?

Illustration for article titled Meet Spideys New Leading Lady?

We mentioned the other day that Kirsten Dunst doesn't seem to be a lock for Spider-Man 4 and 5 yet, and already people are anointing a new lead actress. Best of all, she's someone you've already seen in the movies. Elizabeth Banks played long-suffering Daily Bugle secretary Betty Brant in the first few films, but only had a small role in each one. Now she's a big star, thanks to W and Zack and Miri Make A Porno, among other things. She told CHUD she'll only return to Spider-Man if it's a bigger role, which sounds good to us. After all, Betty had a pretty great run of storylines in the early Spidey comics, including her gangsta brother, and Banks would bring some needed zing to the franchise. [CHUD]

Goddammit...I so want to see W. But no theatres around where I live will show it. I live in the GOP-dominated part of Minnesota, so any film that criticizes/satirizes their beloved W. gets an embargo. I'd have to drive 120 miles to Minneapolis to see it.
