Emma Stone Talks Spider-Man
And she won't be in 21 Jump Street

If you were hoping that Easy A’s Emma Stone might be cropping up in Superbad co-star Jonah Hill’s new film based on cop TV series 21 Jump Street, we have some bad news: she won’t. “I don't think I'm going to be part of that, but Jonah is one of my favourite people in the entire world," she told MTV. But don’t panic – she’s got a good excuse in that she’ll be a little busy playing Gwen Stacy in Marc Webb’s new Spider-Man.

She’s ready to tackle the challenge of making the movie alongside Andrew Garfield's Peter Parker, but apparently wants to keep things grounded. Except in one particular department… “The way I have to approach it, and I think Andrew would agree, is just like any other movie. You're going to put the same amount of focus into this that you would with anything. It just happens to be an exponentially bigger budget. So there's that. It'll probably feel different when we start to do press, but we won't have to deal with that for another year and a half. And there are harnesses I'm going to have to use in this one. That's the only difference. Just the harnesses.”

Stone will likely need some time to prepare for the physical side of the job, but she’s also got other issues on her mind.“ I went and did hair tests, because I have blonde hair now since Gwen has blonde hair. My natural hair is blonde, so it's kind of nice. I looked in the mirror and said, ‘Oh my god, it's me again, it's been so long!’ We're finalizing the visual stuff. And I think we'll start actually rehearsing, because we start shooting in two weeks. Andrew and I went and learned about science yesterday. Gwen really likes science, so we learned about science. I was home-schooled, so I never went to chemistry class in a traditional setting like Gwen is into. That was really beneficial.”

And finally, she’s not immune to the pressure of pleasing Spider-fans. “I have such respect for the world of comic book fans. I've been to Comic-Con for Zombieland, and zombie fans are a very specific kind of fan base. And my absolute favourite kinds of people in the world are people that are passionate about something. And if there's protective of something they're passionate about it, I can completely relate because there and things I'm passionate about and protective of. There's a part of me that really wants to please people that love Spider-Man or Gwen Stacy and want her to be done justice. I hope they'll give me license to interpret her my way.” Good luck with that one…

RE: go shopping for christmas
"Andrew and I went and learned about science yesterday." ... *facepalm* I'm off to learn about science! A needless reboot/cash in of a perfectly serviceable Spiderman film that's barely 8 years old. More
