Emma Stone discusses ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’

Actress says her character is the 'brains' to Spider Man's brawn

Emma Stone has spoken about her character Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Speaking to Total Film about her character’s role in the superhero sequel, Stone was asked how many times she is saved by Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker. She replied: “Not many. I can think of one important instance. She saves him more than he saves her. She’s incredibly helpful to Spider-Man… He’s the muscle, she’s the brains.”

She added: “I don’t get to do too many crazy stunts. She gets herself in the middle of stuff, that’s for sure! I do get webbed to a car. There’s shit like that.”

Director Marc Webb finished shooting The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in June of this year and the film is set to open worldwide on May 2, 2014. Jamie Foxx will play the villainous Electro, while Chronicle star Dane DeHaan is another new addition to the cast and plays Harry Osborn, Peter Parker’s best friend. Shailene Woodley had been due to appear as Mary Jane Watson, but her role has recently been cut from the film and MJ will now make her Amazing Spider-Man debut in the third movie, due in 2016.

It was recently revealed that the film’s score will be provided by Hans Zimmer, Pharrell Williams and Johnny Marr, while screenwriters Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Jeff Pinkner, who all share the credit for writing the superhero sequel, have reportedly agreed to reunite to pen a third and fourth installment in the series due in 2016 and 2018 respectively.
