zooey deschanelNov 11, (THAINDIAN NEWS) It looks like Peter Parker will have a new reason to fly around in the next installment of ‘Spider-Man’ as the web is abuzz with the rumors that Zooey Deschanel will be joining the cast. Some of the reports indicate that the ‘500 Days Of Summer’ star is in talks with director Marc Webb about the role of Elizabeth ‘Betty’ Grant. Though the character of Elizabeth ‘Betty’ Grant is considered a supporting one in the comic, Marc Webb, reportedly, has big fans for the young actress.

The character of Elizabeth ‘Betty’ Grant works for the Daily Bugle under editor-in-chief J Jonah Jameson. An insider said that Marc Webb is looking for a strong character to carry off the role and Zooey Deschanel is the perfect choice. The insider also revealed that the role will go to Zooey Deschanel if she wants it. At the moment it is unclear whether Zooey Deschanel will actually appear in the movie but the character has been seen in the earlier installment of the franchise.

Zooey Deschanel has earlier worked with Marc Webb in the past for the movie ‘500 Days of Summer’. She played the role of Summer Finn, a girl who gets into a turbulent relationship with her colleague played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The ‘Inception’ star was also one of the favorites to take over the role of Spider-Man from Tobey McGuire, but later the role went to Andrew Garfield.

Zooey Deschanel made her debut in the 1998 TV series ‘Veronica’s Closet’. She is also a part of the band ‘She and Him’. If the rumors turn true then she would add to the cast of the rebooted Spider-Man which will star Michael Sheen and Sally Field.
