Emma Stone responds to persistent rumors that she’s returning to the Marvel universe as Gwen Stacy for Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Emma Stone is well aware of the rumors that she’ll be back as Gwen Stacy from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in Spider-Man: No Way Home and now she has provided a response. Ever since it’s been reported that Jamie Foxx is reprising his role as Electro in the Jon Watts movie, there have been rumors that other characters from the previous Sony projects centered on the web-slinging hero will also appear in the project. That includes other Spider-Man actors such as Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, as well as, their respective love interests in Kirsten Dunst and Stone.
Spider-Man: No Way Home will reportedly be Marvel Studios’ live-action attempt at a Spider-Verse story on the heels of the animated film’s success. Aside from the aforementioned characters, Charlie Cox from Netflix and the mostly separate side of the franchise is also supposedly reprising his role as Matt Murdoch. Thus far, only Andrew Molina has confirmed that he’s indeed reprising his role as Doc Ock from Spider-Man 2 in the MCU threequel with Garfield famously denying the murmurs which he, interestingly, walked back on immediately after.

When Garfield’s on-screen partner, Stone, is asked this time about her potential appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home, she, too, maintains that she’s not attached to the project. That said, she knows that there have been rumors about it. Speaking to MTV News to promote her latest film, Cruella, the actress kept her answer brief, saying that she isn’t involved in the Marvel Studios project. Read what she said below:
I have heard those rumors. I don’t know if I’m supposed to say anything, but I’m not [involved].”I’m not. I don’t know what you’re supposed to respond as an alumnus (laughs).
Learning that Spider-Man: No Way Home might focus on the multiverse was surprising at first. Spider-Man: Far From Home‘s mid-credits scene sets up an entirely different movie with the idea that the threequel will see the hero dealing with his identity being revealed. However, since the movie is confirmed to have narrative connections with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, albeit, no word if Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer Supreme will appear, many are more convinced now that this will be the case. This makes the potential involvement of other versions of Spider-Men and even their leading ladies like Stone’s Gwen more likely.
That being said, it’s worth noting that, unlike Dunst’s Mary Jane, The Amazing Spider-Man series’ leading actress died in the second film. While Electro and Doc Ock’s final fates in their respective films were only implied, Gwen was definitively killed on screen. So if anything, Stone’s absence in Spider-Man: No Way Home is justified, assuming that Marvel Studios is indeed tackling the multiverse storyline.
