From the Better Late Than Never Department: Cinefantastique’s Spotlight Podcast 5:20, focusing on X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, was supposed to post last Monday. Unfortunately, technical delays prevents it from being posted until today. Listen in as Lawrence French and Steve Biodrowski discuss the latest installment of the Marvel mutant film franchise, in which Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) travels back in time to enlist Dr. Xavier (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) in an attempt to prevent an apocalyptic future with dire consequences for mutants and humans alike.
UPDATED: According to Sony Pictures Studio, Emma Stone (ZOMBIELAND) has been cast in the the role of Gwen Stacy, not Mary Jane Watson in the Spider-Man reboot.
Deadline.com and other online sources previously indicated that Stone had been cast as Peter Parker’s (Andrew Garfield) later girlfriend and future wife Mary Jane, rather than the (in the comics) ill-fated Gwen Stacy, his first major love interest.
Betty Brant (JJJ’s secretary) and schoolmate Liz Allen also had an interest in Peter Parker.
