Emma Stone is in Spider-Man boys club

24 December 2013, 12:36

Los Angeles - Emma Stone says starring in The Amazing Spider-Man franchise has been an introduction to the "boys' club".

The 25-year-old actress loves the challenge of playing Peter Parker's high school sweetheart Gwen Stacy because only hardcore fans of the original Marvel comic books know the character.

In an interview with Total Film magazine, she said: "Everyone's like, 'Oh, Mary Jane! I know Mary Jane.' But Gwen's been a fun one to play because only really passionate comic book fans know the story. And that's been a really cool introduction to the comic book world and to being in the boys' club."

However, the striking star insists she doesn't ever get approached by fans in the street and has yet to encounter a super-fan of her feisty alter-ego.

Stone said: "Not many. Weirdly, I don't meet that many super fans in my day-to-day life. I thought more people would say something about Gwen."

The actress famously fell for her co-star Andrew Garfield while shooting the first movie in 2011, and their relationship is still going strong, which made filming the sequel much easier.

She explained: "He's grown as a person in the same way you've grown as a person, so I think that lends itself to a character in many ways. He looks different. He seems different."

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 - which also stars Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker and his web-slinging alter-ego - is out on April 18, 2014.
