    Why is Emma Stone taking the role of Gwen Stacey a “bummer?” She was a fairly major character in the Spider-Man mythology, and if her role is expanded from the fan-service cameo of Spider-Man 3, there’s nothing to be sad about (Besides the fact that I’m almost positive this reboot is going to suck).

    Just meant that I was stoked for the possibility of an actress like her taking on the sultry Mary Jane after dealing with Dunst for a few years. But don’t misread. I’m very happy to see Stone in the film in any capacity.

    “Some people have looked at that stat and said that it illustrates how rare it is for such a thing to occur. I beg to differ. How many quality movies, other than those listed above, have ever revolved around two women? Not many.* The problem is not the Academy failing to recognize co-leading ladies, but the fact that so few movies feature them.”

    Feinberg makes a great point.

    On the NYT article…

    “But its (Social Network’s) less than spectacular box office performance in its opening weekend…”

    “Less than spectacular” based on what?
