Spider-man's leading ladies: Kirsten Dunst vs. Emma Stone
Stand by…the stars are swinging into London tonight for the premiere of superhero blockbuster 'The Amazing Spider-man'. It’s been five years since the last Spidey film, and it’s all change for this latest installment. Brit Andrew Garfield has replaced Tobey Maguire as the web-weaving hero, while Emma Stone takes over from Kristen Dunst as his love interest (check out her incredible fash tour here).
A prequel to the previous films, 'The Amazing Spider-man' follows Peter Parker in High School, as he starts to discover his superhero powers. Emma isn’t playing Kirsten’s role of flame haired Mary Jane – “MJ” – Watson. Instead, she stars as Peter Parker’s teenage sweetheart, studious blonde Gwen Stacey (Emma’s 'Help' co-star Bryce Dallas Howard played the character in 'Superman 3'). Rhys Ifans replaces James Franco as the film’s baddie, playing a scientist who turns into a 9ft Lizard when an experiment goes wrong.
But – forget good vs evil – what we
But who do you think? Are you glad Emma has replaced Kirsten? Or won’t Spiderman be the same without MJ by his side?
