Actress Emma Stone, who reprises her role from The Amazing Spider-Man as Gwen Stacy, recently spoke about the sequel, and how it will "bridge the distance" between Andrew Garfield's Peter Parker and Gwen. She also praises the screenplay, which she calls 'very, very good'. Is that enough to make the movie 'great'?
"I'm in it, Andrew is in it, they just cast Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn who is such a great actor. And Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane, who's also wonderful. So there's all that and the script is very, very good. I'm very much looking forward to it. I'm very happy that our first one was received so well, it'll be cool in the next one to see how Gwen and Peter bridge that distance that was between us at the end of it. I think the way it all unfolds is pretty neat. And I hope they continue letting Gwen be heroic, I think they might!"
Production is currently under way in New York City, with Marc Webb directing from a screenplay by Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman, and Jeff Pinkner.
