Coming from ActionFigureXpress in April, it's Cheerleader Buffy:

That goofy "Spider-Man 3" casting

So the "Spider-Man" movie franchise, which for the past two movies featured a blonde playing a redhead (Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane Watson) will now feature a redhead playing a blonde (Bryce Dallas Howard as Gwen Stacy).

Weird. And it gets even stranger when you consider Dunst's Mary Jane character was placed in a very Gwen Stacy-getting-dropped-by-Green Goblin scene in the first flick (unlike Gwen in the 1970s comic, however, the movie Mary Jane survived).

But what the heck. I was pretty entertained by the first two Spidey flicks and look forward to the next. Despite whatever tweaks and changes they make, the films are still in many ways more loyal to the spirit of the original Lee-Ditko, Lee-Romita comics than the stuff Marvel is publishing today.

Here's Bryce Howard, now blonde:
