Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios have announced that Emma Stone has been cast as Gwen Stacy in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot. Stone will play opposite Andrew Garfield, the new Peter Parker.
“The chemistry between Andrew and Emma was stunning and made Emma the clear choice. At the heart of the story of Peter Parker is not only the amazing Spider-Man, but also an ordinary teenager who is wondering what he has to do to get the girl. Andrew and Emma will bring everything audiences expect to these roles, but also make them their own. Much to my surprise, it was fun to find out that our choice for Gwen (Emma) is also a natural blonde,” said director Marc Webb.
Spider-Man begins production in December and hits theaters on July 3, 2012.
