The aptly named site, OhNoTheyDidnt – actually did!
Today, the blog published as FACT an old April Fool’s Day JOKE that Robert Pattinson was replacing Tobey Maguire in “Spider-Man.”
[Catch your breath from laughter]
According to OhNoTheyDidnt, “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.”
Wait, it gets more ridiculous.
The site wrote, “In the official press release, [the Sony chairman] 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.”
And OhNoTheyDidnt even “quoted” the film series’ director Sam Raimi as saying, “Decisions like these are always difficult. I know the fans liked Tobey — and I greatly enjoyed working with him – but Robert is the future of the franchise.”
Trust us, the site wasn’t joking. Those clowns even Tweeted out the story.
Gossip Cop would like to wish OhNoTheyDidnt a belated Merry Christmas and an even more belated April Fools!
