Coming to theaters this summer, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN is the highly anticipated (despite seeming a tad early) reboot of the Marvel Comics superstar last seen in the trilogy of films directed by SAM RAIMI. This time around, MARC WEBB is at the helm and ANDREW GARFIELD steps in to replace TOBEY MAGUIRE as Peter Parker and his titular altar-ego.
Previously seen on the big screen portrayed by BRYCE DALLAS HOWARD in SPIDER-MAN 3, the role of Gwen Stacy now goes to EMMA STONE. In the original story, Stacy was Parker’s first love whose brutal death at the hands of the evil Green Goblin has always been a polarizing event amongst fans. So far, there’s been no reveal as to how Stacy fares in the new version. We caught up with STONE at last week’s WonderCon and she talked about her fondness for the character.
