Emma Stone was initially wary of her role in The Amazing Spider-Man


25 March 2012

While we are just a few months away from the release of the hotly anticipated Marc Webb directed The Amazing Spider-Man, reboot star Emma Stone has revealed that she was initially wary of her role.

The gorgeous Stone who is known for her comedic turns in the likes of Easy A, Zombieland and Superbad and during an interview with Comic-Con Annual 2012, The Help star revealed that she didn't feel she was right for the part of the scientist and love interest opposite Andrew Garfield's Peter Parker admitting "I heard about Spider-Man and I didn't think it was something I would want to be a part of. I just thought that probably isn't right for me. Then I auditioned with Andrew Garfield and realised that this was a really interesting, fantastic relationship between two people and that I was being really closed-minded."

Stone who dyed her trademark red hair blonde for the part also explained how her character finally changed her mind about the film adding "I started learning more about Gwen Stacy and her history and just fell in love with the character and with the fans, too. I started reading forums and getting involved more in the comic book universe and it just became something I really wanted to be a part of, just because of all those elements."

The Amazing Spider-Man opens on July 4 in 3D and features a stellar cast of Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Martin Sheen, Campbell Scott, Julianne Nicholson, Sally Field and C. Thomas Howell.
