There was speculation about ZOMBIELAND star Emma Stone being considered for the role of Mary Jane in the Marc Webb-directed upcoming SPIDER-MAN reboot movie a few weeks ago, along with Mia Wasikowska, the star of last year’s surprising hit ALICE IN WONDERLAND, as well as recent additions such as Glee’s Dianna Agron and Dominique McElligot. Deadline.com has recently announced that it would be Stone’s role to lose saying, “Sony Pictures Entertainment Will imminently offer the role of Mary Jane Watson to Emma Stone…”
The website also mentions that the remaining ladies will likely be considered for the role of Gwen Stacy, a role previously played by Bryce Dallas Howard. So there you have it, folks. Marc Webb will be the director, Andrew Garfield will player Peter Parker aka Spider-Man and unless she decides that MJ isn’t for her, Emma Stone will likely saddle up as the next Mary Jane in the series. This news comes as no surprise to me after Stone’s critical acclaim in her most recent film, Easy A.
