251 560x380 easy a emma stone Spider Man: Emma Stone Update

Yesterday we brought you the news Emma Stone would play Mary Jane Watson but today an official announcement came from both Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment and Matt Tolmach, president of Columbia Pictures that she will in fact be playing Gwen Stacy in the upcoming film. Here’s what Marc Webb, the director had to say:

“The chemistry between Andrew and Emma was stunning and made Emma the clear choice. At the heart of the story of Peter Parker is not only the amazing Spider-Man, but also an ordinary teenager who is wondering what he has to do to get the girl. Andrew and Emma will bring everything audiences expect to these roles, but also make them their own. Much to my surprise, it was fun to find out that our choice for Gwen (Emma) is also a natural blonde.”

This seems to be legit so hopefully we won’t have to update you folks on any sudden changes but either way she is still a good choice.
