Will Emma Stone be in the Spider-Man sequels?

Dec. 22, 2010by: Niki Stephens

In the SPIDER-MAN universe, we only got Gwen Stacey for a short time. Sadly, she dies at the hands of Green Goblin before Peter can save her. Well, he sort of did, but she was already dead when he caught her.

But in a recent interview on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (via Monsters and Critics), Stone hints that she might have to keep her hair blonde for awhile. Leno asks, "How long will you keep it blonde?" Stone responds with this, "Um, well, ya know, there's a few Spider-Men...so I may have to keep it for a couple of years."

This isn't exactly a confirmation. She does seem pretty sure that the character will get a sequel though. We don't even have a plot synopsis. All the we have are tidbits of speculation on what we might think the reboot is going to cover. Stone also talks about sharing the same trainer with the new Spidey, Andrew Garfield. "The other day, after work, I was supposed to work out with our trainer and Andrew said Would it be ok if I worked out with you guys? I was like No, that would not be ok. He was like Why? Itll be a bonding experience. I said Because you can lift a car and I'm like, ya know, a weakling beyond belief. Were on two completely different ends of the spectrum."

Then in an article for the LA Times, some details on the production of the film in Los Angeles are given:

"The latest Spider-Man film alone will employ nearly 1,000 crew members, including construction workers building sets for the production, which takes up seven stages on the Sony Pictures lot. Sony began its 90-day film shoot for "Spider-Man" two weeks ago, mainly on the lot but also on location, including at the Henry Fonda Theater in Hollywood and Immanuel Presbyterian Church in mid-Wilshire. Scheduled for release in 2012, "Spider Man 4" has an entirely new cast (British actor Andrew Garfield replaces Tobey Maguire) and is being directed by Marc Webb at less than half the budget of the previous Spider-Man film, which cost more than $250 million to make. Although the production will include two weeks in New York (where the story is set), the bulk of filming will occur in Los Angeles on the Sony lot and various locations around town, from South Pasadena to San Pedro to Woodland Hills."

Extra Tidbit: Actually, it would be nice to see Gwen Stacy in more than one film. What do you think?

Maybe if marvel did shit right from the beginning, they wouldn't need so many God forsaken, God damned, fuckin' reboots... I mean with Mark Ruffalo taking over as Bruce Banner and with this new Spider-Man, it's like 3 and a half (with Mark as Bruce in The Avengers) reboots by my count and counting because I heard of a Fantastic Four one as well...

Well

It's no surprise that Gwen will be around for more then one movie since i doubt they will be following the 616 comic. With the high school setting they are going to most likely adapting Ultimate Spider Man since in the 616 Park is only in high school for about 20 or so issues then is off to college, which by the way is where he meets Gwen and not in high school

Gwen could be the love intrest in spidey 1, then kill her off in spidey 2 and have Black Cat be the new love intrest then have Peter meet and fall in love with Mary Jane in spidey 3! No but i'd like to see black cat!

Presumably. In real life this sort of injury would be extremely rare. People all over the world bungee jump and there was only one reported case ever of a broken neck due to whiplash. It would be much more plausible to suggest that she died of fright.

It'd be like bungee jumping with a hemp rope. Which is essentially a hanging.

I've read in an interview with Stan Lee that she actually wasn't supposed to die there but someone drew in the little 'snap' sound by her neck in the panel and then they just went with it.

Supposedly.

She should make it to the 2nd movie and die there. We can get "face it tiger, you just hit the jackpot" early in movie 2, but Peter has no interest in MJ other than as a friend. Then Gwen dies as done in the comic and Peter will eventually end up with MJ in movie 3 after looking to her for support. The film audience needs movie 1 and 2 to fall in love with Gwen and also choose her over MJ, as we did as comic readers. It makes her death 2/3 into the whole story that much more tragic and sad.

this remake is gonna turn out good

lets be honest, most of us, if not all of us, do not like this idea because it has not been very long since Spider Man 3, and i have grown to only see Tobey as Peter Parker, but this remake will be good, i had doubts at first but it looks like they know what they are doing, i will be for sure seeing it ! and Emma Stone is just great

This reboot

is COMPLETELY necessary. Raimi's Spider-man movies are overrated with pretty terrible acting. Webb is a better director, and so far his core cast is more talented as well. It baffles me that people are dissing this before it comes out. Andrew Garfield is the real deal (check out his range from Dr. Parnassus to Social Network), and I'll be excited to check this out. Give it a chance, nerds.

I don't get ...

The backlash for a film/series that has hardly shown enough to have hate towards. Sure, Spiderman just had a series of movies but its not like 1 or 3 were these cinematic masterpieces that did everything right.

Hell, I can count on one hand the things I liked about the original series:

Dafoe's Goblin
Franco
Molina

That's about it.

Now I had fun with the first movie and really enjoyed the 2nd but the 3rd was .. well .. they shit all over my favorite comic character ever and

That said, I'm down with this reboot and I'm down with Gwen being in as many movies as they want her in. I also don't have anything against her not dying at all in them.

I think the cast looks good, the director is promising and I enjoy getting a fresh take on these characters.

Thumbs up from me.

P.S.

Its Spiderman, this movie WILL make bank at the box office, there is no doubt about that. The craptastic 3rd Spiderman made loads of dough too. Its not the quality in this case, it is the name brand.

JK was cool ... Bruce, Aunt May and Baker weren't enough to make me care enough for them to have lasting impressions about them in those films.

Baker's Connors would've been missed if he had ever turned to Lizard.

But he didn't.

This reboot is very unnecessary and pointless. Stone should not get to ahead of herself because who to say this film will be any good or even make enough to warrant a sequel?

Can't Wait...

I think Garfield and Stone will have a real rapport and it will add very well to the reboot. Like Nite Owl said below, I hope this does for the franchise what Batman Begins did for the original Batman series. Taking not so good movies and turning them in to masterpieces.

I'M HOPING THIS DOES FOR SPIDERMAN...

What Batman Begins did for Batman, however I'm a little put off by the fact that a 30yro English actor is playing an American teenager in High School. Also I never cared for a lot of the changes in the Ultimate Spiderman comics either. All that said though, as a fan I hope it turns out well in the end, and we get a good movie out of it.

They've never officially confirmed that it A) Takes place with a high-school aged Peter Parker, or B) That it's based primarily on the Ulimate Comics Universe--this is stuff people online have propagated themselves..

In the second movie

Gwen Stacy will return but Emma Stone won't. Gwen Stacy will be killed by Spiderman's arch enemy and she'll be played by Maggie Gyllenhaal.

I would actually rather see all the movies with Gwen Stacy and forget Mary Jane altogether. I'm not of fan of most incarnations of Mary Jane. Pretty much the only version of her I really liked was the Ultimate version and that version was basically just Gwen Stacy with red hair. With all the different incarnations of Spider-Man using Mary Jane, I think it would be nice, just for once, to have a version with just Gwen.

Spoiler-ish to the non Spiderman fans....

I think it would be interesting to keep Gwen Stacey for another movie, it would probably make her inevitable demise that much more dramatic (possibly evoking an Empire Strikes Back type of direction), but more than two movies would be overkill, how long can they keep her around? Yeah it's a bit soon, but I'm not opposed to the reboot. Other than Spiderman 2, I didn't think the first was near the territory Singer's Xmen films reached or, of course, Nolan's Batman and we all know how 3 ended up...

I wouldn't mind if they save Gwen's death for the second movie, or go in a completely different direction entirely. I'm accepted this whole reboot thing, and I'm open to anything at this point.

I'm watching Emma in Easy A as I type this, btw. She's just entirely tpo cute, it should be illegal.
