Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, & the Lizard on the new Spider-man movie

Casting news for the new Spider-man (reboot) movie. Emma Stone is cast to play Gwen Stacy in the Spider-man reboot, which is kind of a dumb choice for the role because Emma Stone, with the kind of aura she evokes, is perfect for Mary Jane Watson, not only that; she's also a redhead, as Mary Jane is! Yes, many also share this opinion; and the producers should reconsider; Emma Stone would not look as cute as a blonde, and would also not probably work as a serious character such as Gwen Stacy (Spider-man geeks out there know the fate of Gwen). Emma Stone for Mary Jane Watson!

As for the villain, Rhys Ifans (Notting Hill, Little Nicky) will play Dr. Curt Connors, better known as The Lizard. There had been rumors across the blogosphere that Sony was thinking of bringing back Venom for the franchise reboot, but that character will not be featured in the movie.

Andrew Garfield stars as Peter Parker, while Emma Stone will play Gwen Stacy, who rivals Mary Jane Watson for Spidey's affection. Avi Arad and Laura Ziskin are producing the movie, which begins production in December. If you can recall, Dylan Baker played Connors in Sam Raimi's two "Spider-Man" sequels.
"Spider-Man" will hit theaters in 3D on July 3, 2012.
