Face it tiger: we just hit the jackpot. Easy A star Emma Stone is reportedly just moments away from being offered the role of Mary Jane Watson in the new Spider-Man reboot. The new Spidey movie will allegedly follow the comics and first introduce Gwen Stacey as Peter Parker’s love interest, while Watson becomes more integral as the film series develops. Stone was a real firecracker in Easy A and might just be the perfect feisty redhead to fill the role. [Deadline]
I did not care much for the Sam Raimi Spider-Man in 2002… thought Spidey 2 was worse, and never even saw the third one. Never having read comic books, I really have nothing invested in them or the re-boot. Until now, that is. If Stone takes the roll, I’ll buy a ticket.
