Emma Stone Signed on for Several “Spider-Man” Movies

Movie News

Production recently began on Marc Webb’s reboot of the “Spider-Man” franchise, and star Emma Stone recently discussed the film during an appearance on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno,” Cinematical reports. During the interview, Stone confirmed that she’d remain a blonde for the foreseeable future, as she has already signed on for multiple “Spider-Man” movies.

Stone plays Gwen Stacy, a role originally played by Bryce-Dallas Howard in “Spider-Man 3.” Although she was very important to Peter Parker in the comics, her role was seriously downsized in Sam Raimi’s movie, serving mainly as a source of jealousy for Mary Jane Watson. Seeing as we have no word yet on whether or not Mary Jane will even appear in the reboot, it’s safe to assume that Gwen Stacy has been restored to her true significance.

Which would mean some major drama for Spidey if the films follow the comics…


One of the major story arcs in “Spider-Man” history involves Gwen’s death. Years ago, when David Fincher was briefly considered as director of the first “Spider-Man” film, he expressed an interest in adapting this story, but it is believed that the studio thought it would be too dark. With the popularity of such gritty comic book films as “Watchmen” and “The Dark Knight” proving that audiences actually don’t mind a little bit of darkness in their superhero flicks, maybe the studio is now ready to tackle this material.

Of course, that all depends on whether or not the reboot is successful enough to warrant a sequel. A great cast has been put together and Webb is an interesting choice for director. (Interesting in a good way.) Let’s hope this movie works out better than the musical has been.
