Zooey Deschanel to join SPIDER-MAN?

I’ll believe this one when I see it, but nonetheless, it may very well prove to be yet another step forward for the upcoming Marc Webb-directed SPIDER-MAN reboot, which is shaping up to have a massively eclectic cast.

Showbiz Spy (via Bleeding Cool) is reporting that Zooey Deschanel is set to join the film’s cast, as Betty Brant, J Jonah Jameson’s PA. Elizabeth Banks took up the role in Sam Raimi’s run on the film franchise, and would see the raven-haired thespian (and personal crush for yours truly) reteam with her (500) DAYS OF SUMMER director.

Personally, while I don’t really think this rumor has much backing, if it does truly come through, it is just another step in the direction of awesome for this film, which currently has Emma Stone, Andrew Garfield, Rhys Ifans, Sally Field and Martin Sheen. I love this cast, and yes, it may seem like a weird mix of talent, but I genuinely think that Webb will be able to make something great out of this project.
