It’s typical in big blockbuster superhero movies to see the female lead character be a damsel in distress, but according to Emma Stone, that won’t be the case in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. In a new interview with Total Film, the actress was asked how many times Spider-Man has to save her character Gwen Stacy. Here’s what she had to say:
Not many. I can think of one important instance. She saves him more than he saves her. She’s incredibly helpful to Spider-Man… He’s the muscle, she’s the brains. I don’t get to do too many crazy stunts. She gets herself in the middle of stuff, that’s for sure! I do get webbed to a car. There’s shit like that.
