Yes, I think what holdingoutforjacob is worried about is a deviation from the established domain. It's happened many times when converting a book to a movie, some successful and some really not. Sometimes, even with the original author's input, new canon is created for the characters that conflict with the original idea. This is most definitely a concern, especially when developing multiple books of a series into movies. As an ex comic collector, I can sympathize with this view as I have watched some of my beloved comic books characters get melted down to an easily digested view for the masses. I sincerely hope this doesn't happen to this series. However, I don't think exploring Emily further would necessarily cause this to happen, provided it is done intelligently and with SM's approval and input.
