Looks like the upcoming Spider-Man reboot will have not one, but two female leads in the form of Mary Jane Watson and Gwen Stacy. According to Entertainment Weekly, it seems that Sony has Emma Stone (Zombieland, Easy A) as the front runner for the role of MJ (obviously) while Alice in Wonderland’s Mia Wasikowska is the front runner for the role of Gwen.
While I don’t mind Spidey having girls all over him, I don’t know if I want a triangle love story as it’s just not my thing. As far as casting goes, I think Stone is perfect to play a young MJ while Wasikowska (some one wants to help me learn how to pronounce this) may have the looks to give Gwen Stacy the cute, shy girl appearance. What do y’all think about this casting news? Are you happy with the idea of two female leads or did Spider-Man 3 ruined it for you that you don’t want it?
