Emma Stone might join the Spider-Man 3 franchise and play Spider-Gwen alongside Tom Holland. The actress will be seen next on the big screen on Disney’s live-action movie Cruella.
Rumors are rife that the upcoming Spider-Man 3 will feature a multiverse, which will also bring back Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. The actors are reportedly reprising their versions of Spider-Man to team up with Holland. Emma Stone was cast as Gwen Stacy in the 2012 film where Garfield was the webbed superhero.
Sony Pictures previously stated that Maguire and Garfield’s inclusion is not confirmed. However, according to reports, the multiverse is still very much in the cards and will even include Stone’s Spider-Gwen.
Actress rumored to be pregnant
Despite the pandemic delays, filming preparations for Spider-Man 3 is reportedly in full swing. Holland will soon wrap up his work in Uncharted. So, he’s expected to be in the superhero movie set by early 2021.
But it’s unclear how Emma Stone might join the Spider-Man 3 production amid rumors that she is pregnant with her first baby with new husband Dave McCary. The actress was pictured in Santa Monica with what looks like a baby bump.
However, Stone hasn’t announced her pregnancy or wedding in the media. She confirmed her engagement to McCary in December 2019, after three years of dating. The couple was supposed to have their wedding in March but the pandemic happened.
The actress was last seen in the film Zombieland: Double Tap and she is done working on her voice recording for the animated movie The Croods: A New Age. It’s understood that she’s taking a short break from work after Cruella wrapped up in November 2019. She’s also rumored to be cast in Babylon, which will reunite her with her La La Land director Damien Chazelle.
Cruella’s plot summary revealed
Meanwhile, a new plot summary for Disney’s Cruella has been unveiled on Good Reads and while it’s for the novel’s release in April 2021, fans think that this will follow the same story as Stone’s movie.
The plot underscores that Cruella’s original name is Estella, a gifted and artistic London orphan who becomes a street hustler. She is thrown “into the world of the young rich and famous” and meets a rockstar who asks her to design his signature pieces.
But Estella starts to question her life and her future when she realizes she could still do bigger things. Estella’s transformation as Cruella will come with some sacrifices.
Joining Emma Stone in Cruella are Emma Thompson, Paul Walter Hauser, Joel Fry and Emily Beecham. The film will be in theaters in May 2021.
