Cinema Blend writer Perri Nemiroff recently sat down with Emma Stone to discuss her role as Gwen Stacy in “The Amazing Spider-Man” and talk strayed from web-slinging heroes to a familiar axe-throwing District 7 Tribute: Johanna Mason. It comes as no surprise that one of the hottest actresses around is considered by many fans as a great choice to play Johanna, but is she even interested?
“She’s naked, like, all the time!” the actress exclaimed with a laugh. Emma Stone went on to say that she is a big fan of the “Hunger Games” series and loved the first movie, but remained elusive as to whether she would audition for the part or not.
In the books, Johanna is described as having spiky hair and wide set brown eyes. During her first Games as a Tribute, Johanna appeared weak and unfit for the Arena, and the remaining Tributes didn’t realize this was merely a strategy until she took to murdering them with her throwing axes. She is sarcastic, sassy, and ruthless, but ended up being a close friend and ally to Katniss due to her rebellious attitude toward the Capitol.
I can see Emma Stone as Johanna. The makeup and costume department would take care of the look, and Stone definitely possesses the capacity to bring every aspect of Johanna’s story and personality to life. As was mentioned in this article, Emma Stone’s comedic abilities can certainly lend to portraying Johanna’s sardonicism and brashness. Likewise, she has experience acting in drama (“The Help”) and action (“The Amazing Spider-Man,” “Zombieland”) movies, so she could certainly handle the emotion and physicality of the role.
How about it, HG fans? Yea or nay?
