Watch: Emma Stone and Marc Webb talk 'The Amazing Spider-Man'
Director and star stop by for a chat at WonderCon 2012
"I didn't grow up with comic books, I'm not gonna lie," admitted "Amazing Spider-Man" star Emma Stone when I caught up with her at WonderCon over the weekend. "I really, really wish that I did, because when you come to conventions you really wanna say that you [did]."
But I was happy she didn't, because I find it annoying when actors fabricate a "geeky" persona just to appease fanboys. And who really cares whether she grew up reading "Spider-Man" or not? It's a ridiculous "prerequisite" to begin with! What's important is that Stone is a good actress, and (in the estimation of many) a terrific choice for the role of Peter Parker's high school sweetheart Gwen Stacy in the upcoming reboot.
And anyway, she did her research.
Also stopping by for a brief chat was director Marc Webb ("500 Days of Summer"), who assured us fans would be very happy with Andrew Garfield's portrayal of the title character.
"Andrew cared so much about Peter Parker and Spider-Man that it became obvious," said Webb. "And he's an actor that has such emotional range - he can be deep and he can be funny."
