Zooey Deschanel is being considered for the role of sexy secretary Betty Brant — a role originated by Elizabeth Banks — in the forthcoming Spider-Man prequel.

“Betty was a minor character in the previous Spidey movies, but Marc has big plans for her. He wants a strong performer to carry the role, and Zooey fits the bill perfectly. The role is hers if she wants it.”

Andrew Garfield — star of the fall box office hit The Social Network — has been confirmed as the new webslinger — Peter Paker — in the upcoming movie with Emma Stone set to play Gwen Stacy. Rhys Ifans is cast as Dr. Curt Connors/ Lizard.

The new Spider-Man has a release date of July 3, 2012.
