Spidey Reboot Gets Their Gwen

I haven’t had the chance to go over my issues regarding the Spider-Man movie reboot (and believe you me, I have issues) but there is some new casting news that has popped up.  Rumors had come up on the internet stating that Emma Stone had been cast in the new Spidey movie.  Those of you who have seen Zombieland and Superbad are probably familiar with the actress.  Common sense was that she had been cast to play the role of Mary Jane Watson and that the role of Gwen Stacy was still available.  Turns out that common sense was wrong in this case.  Emma Stone will be playing the role of Gwen Stacy in the upcoming reboot of the Spider-Man movies.

I’m not particularly upset or annoyed by this news, mostly just confused as most of the roles Emma Stone have played have seemed closer to a Mary Jane Watson type personality not Gwen Stacy.  Hopefully I’m proven wrong and she is able to pull off the girl next door role.  One of the interesting things that Sony Pictures  has been mentioning is that Stone is in fact a natural blonde so she is suited for the role.  If thats one of your casting arguments you might want to rethink some of your press statements Sony.  So what do you all think, can Emma Stone pull of the role of Gwen Stacy, does she look like how you envisioned Gwen to look?
