Emma Stone Says Gwen Stacy Is A Strong, Independent Woman Who Don’t Need No SPIDER-MAN


gwenEmma Stone has had to take a back seat recently when it comes to The Amazing Spider-Man. The actress shined in the first film, but now we’re hearing a lot from the likes of Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Paul Giamatti, and Chris Cooper. Well Stone is back and talking about her return as Spidey‘s gal pal Gwen Stacy in the new issue of Total Film. A snippet of that conversation was posted on the website, and it gives us a hint about what we can expect from Gwen this time around.

There’s a lot of talk online about whether Gwen meets the same fate as her comic book counterpart in the sequel. While we’ll have to wait and see whether or not Gwen suffers the same fate of her father, Stone says her character can handle herself pretty well for the most part. Said the actress when asked if she’s constantly being saved by the dashing hero a lot in the sequel:

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.
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.

I think that last sentence should be used as a quote on the posters and TV spots. It’s interesting that she says she’s not saved many times by Spider-Man. That doesn’t mean he’s not attempting to save her though. You know what we’re getting at if you have any comic book knowledge. There’s a lot going on in the sequel already, but if Gwen takes her fall, that would definitely be one of the film’s biggest scenes. What do you think about the actress’ comments? Do you like the fact Gwen holds her own a little more than Mary Jane in the original trilogy?
