Who will play Peter Parker's new love interest in the new Spider-Man movie?

The search for Peter Parker’s a.k.a. Spider-Man’s love interest is still ongoing weeks after Andrew Garfield was cast in the role. However it seems to have narrowed down to a few select actresses.

Those actresses are currently meeting up with Marc Webb, the director of the new Spider-Man movie, and with Garfield. It has not yet been revealed who exactly is this new love interest, but these actresses are most likely reading for the part of Gwen Stacy rather than that of Mary-Jane Watson, who was Spider-Man’s love interest in the first three films starring Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst.

Most of you already know that Gwen Stacy was Peter Parker’s first love in the comic books. So this 'love interest' in the rebooted movie is either Stacy or she is a completely new character. However, I believe that Stacy is the likeliest choice for the new movie if they are still staying close to the comic books.

Heat Vision Blog reports that the actresses being considered for the role of the love interest are:

Imogen Poots – she is currently filming the Fright Night remake.

Ophelia Lovibond – is a British actress who appeared in Nowhere Boy,, and London Boulevard.

Lilly Collins – she was in The Blind Side and will appear in Priest.

Teresa Palmer – she was the love interest in The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and will appear in I Am Number Four. She apparently read with Garfield last week.

Emma Roberts – the actress has apparently flown from the set of Scream 4 to read twice for the Spider-Man movie.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead – was the love interest In Scott Pilgrim vs the World. Was in the running but has apparently fallen out of the running.

Heat Vision Blog also reports that these actresses were not undergoing screen-tests but that they were rather doing readings and meetings as it’s apparently early in the process.

Most of these actresses, with the exception of Emma Roberts who already has quite the flourishing career, are up-and-coming actresses that will fit in with Andrew Garfield’s fresh face.

Filming for the new movie is set to start in December.

What do you think, would you like to see any of these actresses play Peter Parker's new love interest? Do you think it will be Gwen Stacy? Chime in!
