Emma Stone - Emma Stone: Gwen Stacy is Spider-Man's equal

Emma Stone insists Gwen Stacy is Spider-Man's ''equal''.

The 25-year-old star plays Peter Parker's love interest in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' and believes her alter-ego is a ''modern day'' woman who can take control of her own future.

Talking to screenrant.com, she said: ''They were pretty clear that that's what they wanted to--the kind of Gwen that they wanted. At my first audition, that she was going to be his equal and that she was going to be a modern woman.

''But I think especially in the second movie that point is really driven home because she is so willfully putting herself into these situations even though he wants to protect her and keep his distance from her. And she's also, you know her ambitions are strong and she's going off to school and she's carving out her own path with or without Peter.''

Asked about whether the 'Wait here and let me protect you!' thing works, Stone replied: ''It doesn't really fly with her. Especially when she gets webbed to a car, she's super p***ed.''

Stone was delighted to be cast as Stacy for the original 2012 movie since it's an untold story and she was thrilled to reprise her role for the sequel.

She added: ''A lot of people didn't know the Gwen Stacy story. I didn't know it before I auditioned to play her, so it was pretty cool being back in it.''
