Emma Stone on “Spider-Man,” Andrew Garfield and harnesses

By Sean O’Connell Clearly, one of the film’s in production we’re most excited about is Marc Webb’s “Spider-Man” reboot. It ranks right up there with “The Dark Knight Rises” and probably the one-two punch of “Thor” and “Captain America.” So anytime a cast member from Webb’s planned blockbuster speaks about their role in the superhero extravaganza, we’re eager to share.

While speaking with MTV about the huge year she is enjoying, Emma Stone opened up about playing Gwen Stacy, the love interest of Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker.

“The way I have to approach it, and I think Andrew would agree, is just like any other movie,” Stone told MTV. “You’re going to put the same amount of focus into this that you would with anything. It just happens to be an exponentially bigger budget. So there’s that. It’ll probably feel different when we start to do press, but we won’t have to deal with that for another year and a half. And there are harnesses I’m going to have to use in this one. That’s the only difference: just the harnesses.”

Please tell me she is wearing a harness because Webb is going to toss her off the top of a bridge, just out of Spidey’s reach!

Oh, wait. Rhys Ifans reportedly is playing The Lizard, and not The Green Goblin. Sorry. We’re clinging to Spider-Man rumors, though they are few and far between right now. Just harnesses. But it begins filming soon ahead of a 2012 release. Stay tuned!
