“Over the last week, a shortlist has emerged of actresses that caught the collective eye of Sony and Spider-Man director Marc Webb. The prizes: two lead female roles in Spider-Man, the romantic interests Gwen Stacy and Mary Jane Watson. Emma Stone is one name on the list, and she seems like the ideal fit for Mary Jane Watson. And now Sony will reportedly offer her the role.
Deadline says Sony will “imminently” offer Mary Jane Watson Gwen Stacy to Emma Stone, who has already been in Sony pictures Zombieland and Easy A. The latter film was her first starring role, and she knocked it out of the park, holding her own against far more experienced character actors like Stanley Tucci, Patricia Clarkson and Thomas Haden Church.” –/Film
