Emma Stone To Play Gwen Stacy In Sony’s ‘Spider-Man’ Reboot

Recently it was reported that Emma Stone had been offered the role of Mary Jane Watson in Sony Pictures’ reboot of Spider-Man. It would appear that Stone was unable to resist the comic book temptations, as it’s now been announced by the studio that the actress has accepted the role…though it is not for Mary Jane.

In a press release put out by Sony, it was confirmed that Stone would be playing the female lead, but it would be Gwen Stacy, Spider-Man’s first love from the comics, and not the Mary Jane character that Kirsten Dunst played in the first trilogy. It’s unknown whether or not M.J. will show up at all, or if this is just Sony distancing itself even more from what they did the first time around.

Stone will star opposite of Andrew Garfield (The Social Network, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus) who was announced as the new Spider-Man back in July. The actress first made her mark with a small role in Superbad, and has since starred in movies like The Rocker, The House Bunny, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, Zombieland, and Easy A.

The movie is directed by Marc Webb, who finds himself staring at this juggernaut after only one previous feature, (500) Days of Summer. It’s written by James Vanderbilt, who has also penned The Rundown, Zodiac, and The Losers.

The new Spider-Man is getting ready to start filming in December, and will be released in 3D on July 3, 2012.
