The rumor that popped up over the weekend that Logan Lerman, star of Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, was "almost 100 percent locked" to take over as the webslinger from Tobey Maguire? It may have been nothing more than that, according to

Insiders at Sony report that not only was Lerman 100 percent not going to be Spidey, he wasn't even on the list of candidates being seriously considered.

Since back in January Lerman stated that "conversations are starting" for him to take over the role, and then in February he had to back off from that claim by saying that "the truth is that was kind of exaggerated," we're not sure what to think about these conflicting reports.

So what do you make of Logan Lerman's on-again, off-again love affair with Spider-Man?
