Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) and Emma Stone (Superbad) have joined Imogen Poots, Ophelia Lovibond, Lily Collins, Teresa Palmer, Emma Roberts and Mary Elizabeth Winstead in the race to become Andrew Garfield’s love interest in the Spider-Man reboot. Although according to EW there are two female leads that need casting, which could mean the actresses are testing for Mary Jane Watson and Gwen Stacy.
The studio is casting a rather wide net. It flew Mia Wasikowska, best known as Alice from Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, in from New York to meet with Webb and Garfield. While, most recently, Easy A’s Emma Stone read with Garfield for the role.
Not only do the actresses have to have the acting chops, they also have to have good chemistry with Andrew Garfield as they will be sharing the screen with him for potentially 3 movies.
Filming is scheduled to begin in December so the chosen actress or actresses will likely be announced soon. Who would you go for?
