TASM 2: Emma Stone Says Gwen Saves Spidey More Than He Saves Her
In the latest issue of Total Film, Stone reveals that her character Gwen Stacy will be more than just the standard damsel in distress in Marc Webb's Amazing Spider-Man sequel. "He's the muscle, she's the brains", the actress tells the mag. Read on for more.
In superhero flicks it can be very easy to relegate the female lead to damsel in distress (just look at Sam Raimi's Spider-Man movies for example), but going by what Emma Stone tells Total Film, that won't be the case in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. When asked how many times Spidey (Andrew Garfield) saver Gwen in the movie, Stone replies: "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." Could this one instance be more of an attempted save? Comic fans won't need an explanation for that! But Stone also suggests that Gwen won't be too involved in the action this time around. "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." For more be sure to pick up the latest issue of Total Film.
