Emma Stone Nabs 'Spiderman' Role
From fighting zombies to battling high school rumors, Emma Stone has proved that she's got guts. Now, the young actress will put that spunk to good use as Mary Jane in the upcoming Spiderman movies. The role was previously played by Kirsten Dunst.
Director Mark Webb's reboot of the franchise will reportedly stay closer to the comic book's narrative than Sam Raimi's earlier features. Stone, 21, will be the first new casting announcement from the film since Andrew Garfield, currently starring in The Social Network, was revealed to be playing Peter Parker a.k.a. Spiderman, earlier this year.
Stone has already made splashes this year as the appealing heroine of Easy A, and also had successful turns in the teen comedy Superbad and the zombie romp Zombieland (opposite another Social Network star, Jesse Eisenberg). Webb is also casting for another actress to play Gwen Stacey, Peter Parker's initial love interest in the comics, as well as for villain Venom. –AMY LEE
