The latest movie in the franchise will star newcomer Andrew Garfield and two leading ladies.
It looks like Spider-Man is going to have not one but two love interests in the upcoming reboot of the franchise. The word from those close to the production says that Peter Parker, played by Andrew Garfield, will be posed with a problem familiar to fans of the comic: will he choose the red-headed Mary Jane Watson or blonde Gwen Stacy?
The two roles, which were played by Kristen Dunst and Bryce Dallas Howard respectively in the previous films, are the most sought after gigs in town and the race is heating up.
Emma Stone & Mia Wasikowska Rumored For ‘Spider-Man’ Roles
Reports that Sony executives have narrowed down the search for Spider-Man’s newest love interest to an elite group of actresses first emerged last month, but now it appears that the web is widening to include two other prominent players. Entertainment Weekly has the scoop that “Zombieland” actress Emma Stone and “Alice in Wonderland” star Mia Wasikowska.
21-year-old Emma Stone is rumored to be the front runner for the part of Mary Jane. Fun Fact: she’s actually a natural blonde. She dyed her hair red for her star-making turn in “Superbad” on the recommendation of producer Judd Apatow and the look just stuck. She was most recently seen in “Easy A.”
Mia Wasikowska has been everywhere lately — starring in Tim Burton’s trippy spectacle “Alice in Wonderland” and she played the precocious daughter in the indie hit “The Kids Are All Right.” And she’s reportedly in the running to play Gwen Stacy. She’ll turn 21 on October 14, and next year you can see her in a new adaptation of “Jane Eyre.”
