Emma Stone Officially Cast in Spiderman Reboot

Sony Pictures Entertainment have officially announced Emma Stone to be starring in their upcoming reboot of the Spiderman series to be directed by Marc Webb and starring Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker.

Stone’s career has been building momentum in recent years having appeared in ‘Superbad’, ‘The House Bunny’, ‘Zombieland’ and is currently on screens in the popular teen girl comedy ‘Easy A’ which has so far earned approximately $43 million world wide from just an $8 million budget.

Stone will be playing the role of Gwen Stacey in the Spiderman film, contrary to earlier rumours that she would be offered the role of Mary Jane Watson.

Marc Webb stated that “The chemistry between Andrew and Emma was stunning and made Emma the clear choice.”

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
