Looks like Emma Stone is swinging from one big role to another! The Easy A actress  has just landed a role opposite Andrew Garfield in Marc Webb's twist on the beloved comic Spider-Man.

Emma will not be playing the fiery red-head Mary Jane Watson as many had first predicted.

Sony announced yesterday (via MTV News) the 21-year-old actress will be playing Spidey's other love interest — Gwen Stacey!

Webb said Emma fits better with the role of Gwen because of her chemistry with The Social Network stud, Andrew.

"The chemistry between Andrew and Emma was stunning and made Emma the clear choice," the director said in a statement . "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," he explained. "Much to my surprise, it was fun to find out that our choice for Gwen (Emma) is also a natural blonde."
