Emma Stone Says Spidey Will Use Web Shooters in the Reboot

5 Comments

Or at least, she calls it a “device”. “It” being those shiny things under Peter Parker’s wrists in the pic above.

Speaking to MTV at the Golden Globes, Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy in the reboot) was asked about the rebooted Spider-Man’s web shooters, which were famously changed to organic shooters in the Sam Raimi trilogy.

Stone replied:

It’s a device.

So there you have it, kids. Mystery solved. Spider-Man will not be generating webbing like some spider freak in the upcoming Marc Webb movie.

P.S. I love MTV. Who else but MTV would think to ask an actress about a character’s web shooters at the Golden Globes red carpet? I will never say anything bad about this Josh fellow ever again.

    Marvel is flooding the market now with Spider-man and X-Men reboots, The Mighty Thor, The Avengers, a possible Daredevil reboot and the inevitable Iron Man 3 and Fantastic Four reboot. This is getting crazy. I am willing to bet that most of these will suck. When Raimi and Maguire walked, that was the end of Spider-man. When Ratner directed X-Men: The Last stand, that was the end of X-Men. Fantastic Four 1 and 2 were ridiculous.

      Gotta strike while the iron is hot. I agree they’re putting out alot of films but for the most part they look decent. it’s the ones that aren’t in Marvel’s hands that I worry about like Spiderman, Ghost Rider, and the FF films. Thor and Cap look like they’ll be decent. X-men: not so much. The Avengers is a logical step if they’re building a cohesive movie universe, but they have to keep it simple and not go too crazy. Spiderman (which I still think needs an adjective like Amazing or Spectacular) is in the air for me. I like where they’re going, but then again I have my doubts. Raimi did great with Spthe first two, but the third was lackluster too me and over done. But they were all missing SPidey’s trademark quipping and humor. That to me hurt the franchise alot. As a friend said “There was more humor in both Iron Man films than there was in all three SPidey films.”
      As for the FF franchise I didn’t hate them as much as everyone else did. I think they couldv’e casted some parts better (Sue, Doom and Reed really didn’t work for me), but all in all I felt it did justice to the comics as a fun family oriented action film. Yes Galactus the giant tornado (though i prefer to imagine he was within the tornado) was definitely a mistake, but understably trying to make Galactus’ comic look translate to screen woulda bee an effort in itself. But other than that I think they weren’t half bad. I loved Chicklis and Evans in their parts.

        I agree with everything that you just said. The Amazing Spider-Man NEEDS to be the title of this reboot!!! If they do reboot DD and FF I hope that they go for an older cast for FF and a grittier, less condensed DD. I actually liked the Affleck film but I can see a need to give it an update. Hopefully when that happens Marvel will be helming it.

    Not to mention another Ghost Rider film is in the works. And “Blade Trinity” ruined the Blade franchise. Marvel, quality over quantity!!! I will wait for Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises” for a real superhero film.
