Emma Stone Goes Blonde for 'Spider-Man' Reboot
Fanboy Fix: Emma Stone's Spider-Man Look, The Dark Knight Rises and Battle: Los Angeles
The first images of Emma Stone as a blonde bombshell have arrived online courtesy of Just Jared. This isn't an image of Stone from the film, but it does give us a look at the actress with blonde hair, readying to play Peter Parker's love interest, Gwen Stacey, in the 2012 movie. Funnily enough, though we're used to seeing Stone as a red-head and brunette, her natural hair color is blonde, so this is sort of like a homecoming for the actress.
Speaking about her new look to MTV recently, Stone said, "Today I went and did hair tests, because I have blonde hair now since Gwen has blonde hair. My natural hair is blonde, so it's kind of nice. I looked in the mirror and said, "Oh my god, it's me again, it's been so long!" We're finalizing the visual stuff. And I think we'll start actually rehearsing, because we start shooting in two weeks."
'The Dark Knight Rises' Story Revealed?
As Christopher Nolan gets ready to turn in his script for The Dark Knight Rises (apparently it was due today), folks are pondering which direction he's planning on taking the story for his third (and final) Batman movie. Multiple sources claim Nolan may be borrowing from the Batman Prey storyline, which found the Dark Knight on the run while a new criminal mastermind named Dr. Strange goes on a quest to learn Batman's true identity and ruin him forever.
Catwoman also pops up in the story as an up-and-coming costumed burglar, which makes sense considering there are two female roles up for grabs. Plus Tom Hardy, who's also been cast in an unspecified role, would make for a perfect Dr. Strange. All that being said, Nolan may borrow pieces from the "Prey" storyline (like he's borrowed pieces from other Batman storylines for his previous two movies), but expect him to ultimately go in a different, more cinematic direction, once cameras begin to roll next year.
'Battle: Los Angeles' Gets a Second Trailer
A second trailer has been released by Sony promoting their big 2011 alien invasion movie, Battle: Los Angeles. This one seems to give us a bit more backstory behind the attack; how aliens have been spotted for years over different cities, but we've never known their intentions…until now. (And yes, they use the…"until now" storytelling device.)
Nothing yet from the main stars of the movie – played by Aaron Eckhart, Michelle Rodriguez and Bridget Moynahan – but we should expect to see more of them in subsequent trailers leading up to the film's March 11th release. Nevertheless, this Hurt Locker meets Independence Day vibe definitely has me interested. You?
