Emma Stone has credited Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb with bringing “humanity” to the movie.
The actress said she was convinced Webb was the perfect choice to helm the Marvel superhero epic after seeing his previous film (500) Days of Summer.
“I think that Marc clearly… I mean, for (500) Days of Summer you can tell that Marc cares about love and he cares about humanity. And that was incredibly important for this movie, for The Amazing Spider-Man,” Stone said, reports Flicks and Bits.
She further explained: “He prioritised the relationships just as much as the action. I know he had a million voices in his ear because a movie like this there’s a lot of opinions all the time on everything, and he would come in on Sundays to work on the scenes with us and break them down and build them all the way back up until we had the same scene that was written on the page but we had analysed it to death.
“He was incredibly, incredibly kind and willing to work on that relationship. For my experience, I was very grateful that he came from that background.”
Stone also recently lavished praise on co-star Andrew Garfield when she compared him to legendary star Meryl Streep.
The Amazing Spider-Man is now playing in US and UK cinemas.

Emma Stone Dishes on ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’
Emma Stone on reinterpreting Spiderman mythology, being called a trailblazer.
Playing the love interest in a tentpole comic book movie can be a daunting challenge for any actress but for Emma Stone it was a challenge she accepted.
Before taking the role of Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man, which opens at midnight tonight, Sam Raimi’s Spidey trilogy was the extent of Stone’s knowledge of the legendary comic book character. Reelz asked Stone if she was hesitant about being part of the worldwide phenomenon that is Spider-Man.
Yeah, I think there was hesitation then I tried to get my head out of my own ass and be like ‘OK, not necessarily going to happen to you, you’re not that interesting.’
At least one person thinks Stone is that interesting — her co-star and current real-life boyfriend, Andrew Garfield, whom Stone called a real charmer. The actor, best known for his role in The Social Network, returned the compliment, saying Stone is a brilliant actress and person.
Definitely a charmer.
Today is the day! “The Amazing Spider-Man” is now released in theaters everywhere!
Any Spidey fan worth their tingling Spidey senses knows that today is the big day: The Amazing Spider-Man is finally spinning its way into cinemas.
Most loyal fans of our friendly neighborhood webslinger probably already hit up the midnight showing to see Andrew Garfield don the infamous spider suit. Others will go tonight to watch Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans and the whole gang get in on the action.
And you might leave the theater thinking, How the heck did they do that?! That’s where we come in, with five behind-the-scenes secrets straight from the cast.
1. What’s the Secret to Good Chemistry?! “Chemistry is kind of an indefinable thing,” the film’s resident love interest, Emma Stone, explained to E! News’ Alicia Quarles. “That’s either there or it’s not. It’s kind of instantaneous or it isn’t. So it was nice that we had that kind of thing from the beginning.”
That’s one answer…But the other half of the awww-worthy onscreen romance tells it differently:
“It was hard because she’s just not a pleasant person,” Andrew joked about his on and offscreen GF. “I always just felt like I have no interest in spending time with this person, let alone looking at this person. It was hard to achieve any form of friendship relationship…She’s convinced everyone that she’s this thing when she just isn’t…She’s a bitch.”
How feisty! Don’t let Andrew fool you though, the twosome definitely provides competition to Spider romances of the past (hear that, Mary Jane?!).
2. Was Everyone in Love with Spider-Man?! The short answer: No. Sure, Andrew has been gushing nonstop about his love of the insect-loving superhero, revealing, “I’ve been wanting to be Spider-Man since I was 3—and I’m still not Spider-Man, I’m the actor playing him—but I read the series, I loved the movies, all of it I’ve been a huge fan of since I was very, very young. It’s meant a lot to me.”
But costar Denis Leary had other feelings. He admitted he’s “never been a Spider-Man” guy though his family are huge fans. Which is precisely the reason he didn’t tell his wife about the role, fearing she would pressure him into it.
We’re sure he has a soft spot in his heart now for Peter Park’s alter ego!
