Edward Furlong/Leonardo DiCaprio as Spider-Man
Speaking of Spider-Man, did you know that James Cameron once wrote a treatment for the film and planned to direct? The rights to the franchise had fallen to Carolco Pictures, the same studio that made “Terminator 2: Judgment Day,” and Cameron was all about casting stars Edward Furlong and Arnold Schwarzenegger in the roles of Spider-Man and Doctor Octopus respectively. However, Carolco ended up going belly up, and the rights eventually landed in the hands of Sony. They still had Cameron’s script and were eyeballing then “Titanic” star Leonardo DiCaprio for the role, before hiring Sam Raimi to take the reigns. He…had different plans.
