Emma Stone in the first pics from the set of the Spider-Man reboot!

Dec. 9, 2010by: Mike Sampson

The SPIDER-MAN reboot began filming yesterday in Los Angeles and while Andrew Garfield wasn't in costume, flying around skyscrapers on his web, Emma Stone was present shooting a pivotal scene in the film. Both the photos and the description could be considered spoilers for those not familiar with Spider-Man lore so consider yourself forewarned...

What we likely see below is the funeral of Captain George Stacy, Gwen Stacy's father, who's played by Denis Leary in the film. In the comics, Capt. Stacy is killed as Spider-Man is battling Doctor Octopus. Since Doc Ock is not in this film, we know the circumstances to be different but it appears as if the outcome is the same.

Click on any of the pics below to head to Just Jared, where they've got a full gallery from the set.

Too all the haters...

The first film was great, the second was a masterpiece and the third one deserves an "Awfully Good" feature on this site. All I'm saying is all you can do is get better from Spidey 3; plus I have a total nerd crush on Emma Stone. Gwen Stacy was always an edgy and interesting character in the comics. I think Garfield will be a cool Spiderman too. Sue me.

This could also be uncle Ben's funeral... But Peter would be here too... As of Cap Stacy death, in the Ultimate timeline, he's killed by a robber with a fake spidey costume if I remember well... And that might work here !
Anyway, I have very little hope in this movie.

Does anyone else seem to think that Emma Stone is leading all the hype for this movie? It's like every news story is about her in some way, i wonder if they will market the movie around her a lot since Garfield isn't as famous as her??? You know kind of like they did with Alba for the FF movies, i hope not, but starting to get that feeling.

I Agree with this guy below.. Tobey Mcgauire was sickening to watch on screen.. He makes horrible facial expressions, has a pussy voice & I hated the fact that Sam Raimi always has spidermans mask get ripped to shreds or takin off intentional so we can see the actors face.. thats rediclous.. I want to see SPIDERMAN fighting NOT Tobeys face with a spiderman suit on.. The ending of Pt 3 we had to suffer watching TOBEY verses TOPHER instead of SPIDERMAN verses VENON.. THANKS to the brillant mind

The reason why Spiderman's mask got ripped off in every movie is the reason why in every superhero movie the mask gets taken off... the actor's face has to be shown. The studio's are paying for the actor's face, not just their voice. I hate that their masks come off, but watch pretty much any Marvel movie, and the masks tend to come off. All of the Spiderman movies and Iron Man 1 do it, though Iron Man can get away with it since they can shot RDJ's face in his armor.

After watching that atrocious acting piece of crap 'Tobey Maguire' decimate Spider Man in three sequels. This reboot can do no wrong.

I hope the Special FX are more realistic looking this time around.. Hope they hire Industrial Light & Magic to take care of this.. Sam Raimis Effects never look convincing.. he spends a shit load of money on special effects and it always looks too cartoonish, & unrealistic..His effects never trick your eye into believeing its real.. Im glad this movie is being rebooted.. Sam Raimi is a mediocre Director to begin with.. I cant take his silly slapstick humor.. Spiderman pt2 was his only good part

If I remember right, Stacy's dad died during Spidey's battle with Doc Ock, not the Goblin. Goblin killed Gwen herself. There's no way Doc Ock shows up in the reboot.

She looks good in the part.

Even though I think it is too soon for a reboot and I thought the original trilogy was great, I am somewhat interested in the movie because of Webb and some of the cast. These pics help fans like me of the original who don't approve of the reboot set the tone a bit more.

I think this is going to be what "Punisher: War Zone" was to Jane's "Punsiher".

Looks good

In the comics, Stacy's dad died during Spidey's battle with the Green Goblin. So does this mean they'll bring him back? Maybe looking like the actual Green Goblin? Either way she looks friggin hot as Gwen.

With every day that passes, I'm feeling more and more positive about this movie. Emma looks like she makes a great Gwen.

No.

There's no way they will kill off Gwen Stacy. This is a PG-13 film aimed largely at teenagers, and I doubt they'll kill off the popular leading lady just to stick with what happened decades ago in the comics.

You don't need to film a funeral scene in NYC necessarily. Most graveyards look fairly similar, and it's probably cheaper/easier to film in LA.

That said, they better be shooting a big chunk of this in NYC or it'll be docked a few points in my book. LA just doesn't have the right look for Spiderman.

Kill off Mary-Jane.

I would be more excited about the reboot if Hollywood would do something different with the franchise & made it their own instead of rehashing the same old storylines slightly altered. They should kill off Mary-Jane instead so we can see how different Spidey's life would be with Gwen. Just a thought.

Well I like the way she looks of course, but I'm still up in the air on how I feel about them rebooting Spider-Man this early.

I can't imagine Spidey looking much different, the costume was pretty spot on in the previous films! How much different can they make it without having an angry mob of fanboys at their throat!

They'll probably change the eyes and chest logo a bit, and perhaps make the colors a bit darker.

Looking good. Still not enthused about the whole thing.

Titbit: No chance. I'd imagine they'd build her up for a few movies before dropping that particular shocker on general audiences.

She looks great and the movie looks great. I do wish we'd get a look at the new costume sometime soon.

Whatever...

some blond chick on the street, uninteresting photos made less interesting by the fact that they are in a movie that isn't needed and isn't wanted.
