Robert Pattinson Will Replace Tobey Maguire In Spider-Man 4

Breaking News!! ReelzChannel is reporting that our favorite Twilight Star has signed on to replace Tobey Maguire in Spider-Man 4:

The news dropped like a bombshell early this morning that Sony Pictures has signed Robert Pattinson (Twilight) to replace Tobey Maguire in the titular role in Spider-Man 4. In the official press release, Amy Pascal, Co-Chairman of Sony Pictures and Chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group, announced that Pattinson would not only be assuming the role of Peter Parker and his alter-ego, Spider-Man, in Spider-Man 4, but also in Spider-Man 5 and in a spin-off film to be announced at a later date.

What could the spin-off be?

The press release did not indicate what the spin-off film might be, but recent speculation has focused on Morbius, a mainstay in the Spider-Man comic book mythology. In the comics, Morbius is a "living vampire," a victim of an ill-fated experimental treatment involving vampire bats and shock therapy.

I'm not going to lie--until I read the article in full, I legitimately thought this was true.

It had made my day, but now it's just a let down. I hate Tobey Maguire and I think they killed Spidey with the third movie. I was so excited to see him replaced.

Boo, April Fools Day! :(
