Casting Curio: More on Emma Stone Casting as Gwen Stacy in Spider-Man reboot

We have more on the news that Emma Stone cast as Gwen Stacy in the Spider-Man movie reboot.

Here’s a quote from director Marc Webb:

“The chemistry between Andrew and Emma was stunning and made Emma the clear choice. At the heart of the story of Peter Parker is not only the amazing Spider-Man, but also an ordinary teenager who is wondering what he has to do to get the girl. Andrew and Emma will bring everything audiences expect to these roles, but also make them their own. Much to my surprise, it was fun to find out that our choice for Gwen (Emma) is also a natural blonde.”

This…well this certainly comes as a bit of a shocker to me. I was fully expecting her to be cast as Mary Jane (the rumor was saying she had been offered the part) and I was sorta digging that idea too. Something about that husky voice of hers (much more so than the red hair) made her seem perfect for the part.
