Emma Stone’s Spider-Man Pressure

Emma Stone as Gwen StacyEmma Stone felt "overwhelming" pressure while filming The Amazing Spider-Man.

The 23-year-old actress - who began dating co-star Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker/Spider-Man) after meeting him on the set of the action movie - found shooting the film to be a "big challenge" because she was so eager to impress die-hard fans of the comic book series.

"The film was a big challenge because I wanted to please the comic book fans so there was pressure. It was very overwhelming that the Spider-Man story is 50 years old so there was a lot of live up to but I hope we did a good job," she said.

Emma stars as "super smart" schoolgirl Gwen Stacy - who is Peter's love interest and helps him to try to stop Dr. Curt Connors/The Lizard (Rhys Ifans) wreaking havoc in New York - and director Marc Webb believes Andrew and the blonde beauty had some "great banter" while shooting the movie. Speaking at the UK premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man in London's Leicester Square last night, Webb explained, "Andrew and Emma had this great banter on set and they were ideal to play intellectual characters. Gwen is super smart, I think she is maybe a bit smarter than Peter but don't tell Andrew I said that."

"I really liked it that Gwen was an intellectual equal. Her whole story is really interesting," Emma added.

The Amazing Spider-Man is released on June 28.
