Snow White and the Huntsman Will Still Have Its Snow White

The speculation that the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman will be exclusively about the Huntsman has been laid to rest–Kristen Stewart has confirmed that she will be back for the sequel, though original director Rupert Sanders will not.

In an interview with Indiewire, Stewart said of the sequel:

“Oh, it’s gonna be f**ckin’ amazing. No, I’m so excited about it, it’s crazy… I’m not allowed [to to talk about it.] The other day I said that there was a strong possibility that we’re going to make a sequel, and that’s very true, but everyone was like ‘Whoa, stop talking about it.’ So no, I’m totally not allowed to talk about it.”

Stewart didn’t specify how big a character Snow White will be in the sequel (probably because, as she mentioned, she’s not allowed to), so it still could be Huntsman-centric, but I’m going to go ahead and guess that if Stewart gets a bajillion-dollar paycheck for each movie they’re not going to relegate her to a supporting role. We also don’t know who’ll be replacing Sanders as the director.

Now before you say “I don’t care about this news, Snow White and the Huntsman sucked, Kristen Stewart can’t act.”—those points may be valid. I don’t know. I didn’t see Snow White, and the only thing I’ve seen Stewart in is Adventureland, which I thought she did well in. But even if the movie is Ishtar-level awful, it was one of the highest-grossing movies of the year and it had a female lead. The fact that she’s not being pushed out (whether because of her affair with Sanders or, as would probably be more likely, because she costs a heck of a lot of money to hire) to make way for yet another male-starring action movie is relevant, and it is good.

There are already plenty of bad action movies starring guys. Let’s save some for the ladies, too.

    I’m just glad that she’s no longer taking the brunt of the fallout from the Sanders thing.

    Having now seen both Snow White and the Huntsman and Mirror Mirror, I can honestly say that Mirror Mirror’s Snow was a more interesting and action-y hero. She initiated action against the queen and helped make plans on how to do so with the dwarves. She asked out right for them to teach her how to fight so she wouldn’t be just a symbol until the final strike where she’d just about be utterly useless. Even when they introduced the Queen with the apple at the end, she was still completely bad ass. I just wish that they marketed that one more as an adventure story than just “Oh, pretty and fun retelling!” Even the Queen was more interesting from a writing perspective, and the only reason why I’d go back and watch Snow White and the Huntsman is for Charlize as the Queen.

    The new director must be salivating.

    Snow White and the Huntsman was not a bad film at all. It just had two major problems:
    1. The way the character of Snow White was written, and
    2. The way the character of Snow white was performed by Kristen Stewart.

    Now some people might argue that those look like two fairly significant problems for a Snow White film. But everything else was fine! Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, the Dwarves, the art design ect. So as far as I’m concerned if they can write in something for Snow White to actively do in the next one, it’ll might be decent.

    Of course she’s coming back. She’s only one of the biggest box office draws around. The studio ain’t stupid. As long as she’s not having a Lindsay Lohan type meltdown she’s always gonna be in demand.

    This is good news. If Snow White got erased from Snow White, that would’ve been immensely depressing. Perhaps this time we can avert the Exceptional Woman problem and have a couple of female knights and stuff in the background?
