'The Amazing Spider-Man's' Emma Stone: 'I don't know if I could be a superhero'
Fanboys, don't get your hopes up about ever seeing "The Amazing Spider-Man's" leading lady Emma Stone don a superhero costume. Sorry, she just wants to be normal.
While at a press conference to promote the highly anticipated film at Comic-Con in San Diego on Friday, July 22, Stone was asked if she'd ever like to make the transition from the hero's love interest (she plays Gwen Stacy) to superheroine.
"I don't know if I could be a superhero, to be honest with you," Stone says. "I mean I'd love to say, 'Yes.' There's twelve I could name, but I don't know if I'm your girl if you're looking for a superhero."
Stone also revealed that the project's main draw for her was the new Peter Parker/Spider-Man: Andrew Garfield. Though the "Easy A" actress also credited the "interesting" script -- "it's a different story than you've seen before' -- she admits, "Sorry, I'm a little embarrassed, but for me it was Andrew."
She continues, "It was Andrew because my character experiences everything with Peter. It's her first love and they experience so much together. He teaches her so much and they teach each other so much and with him it made sense. Once I read with him and met him, it just made sense."
Would you like to see Emma Stone tackle a superheroine role one day, Zappers? Sound off in the comments.
