Emma Stone Officially Cast in Spiderman as Gwen Stacy... Not As Mary Jane Watson!

Share


Prior to my previous post, Emma Stone is now officially a part of the cast of the upcoming movie Spiderman. The surprise is: She will be playing Gwen Stacy, not Mary Jane Watson as we had heard.

Gwen Stacy appears as a supporting character in Marvel Comics' Spider-Man series. Created by writer Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko, she first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #31 (December 1965). A blonde college co-ed, Gwen becomes the first love of Peter Parker (Spider-Man). Green Goblin kills Gwen in The Amazing Spider-Man #121 (June 1973). Both the decision to kill Gwen and the method in which Marvel implemented it remain controversial among fans, but the death became a pivotal point in both Spider-Man’s history and in American comic books in general. Spider-Man writers and fans disagree about who is the character’s “one true love”: Gwen or his subsequent wife Mary Jane Watson.
