Emma Stone was the perfect Gwen Stacy for two Amazing Spider-Man films before she was cruelly killed off in the dramatic conclusion to Amazing Spider-Man 2 when Dane DeHaan’s Green Goblin exacts some revenge on Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man for denying him the blood that might have saved his life.
But, the actress moves on quickly as not only is she starring in another film (which can be expected with her being an actress and all) but she’s starring in another superhero flick… Sort of. Stone has a role in Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman alongside Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Naomi Watts and Zach Galifianakis.
The premise of the film is simply superb. Emma Stone plays the daughter of Michael Keaton, a washed up movie star who rose to fame for playing an iconic super hero on-screen. Talk about meta-narrative, that plot is essentially biographical for Keaton, most famous for playing Batman years ago. However Keaton’s character then attempts to reclaim his former glory by leading a broadway play.
Anyway, enough babbling, just watch the trailer. It looks simply superb!
You can catch Birdman, and Emma Stone on October 17th
