A rumor no more, Emma Stone can now call herself  Gwen Stacy; at least for the next few months.

Confirmed earlier today via Sony’s twitter, Stone will star alongside Andrew Garfield in the ‘Spider-Man’ reboot directed Marc Webb. Here’s what Webb had to say about his decision to cast Stone:

“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.”

Garfield and Stone, who were virtually unknowns a year ago, have received much acclaim for their respective performances in ‘The Social Network’ and ‘Easy A.’  The Social Network claimed number 1 at the box office last weekend, while ‘Easy A’ has been a staple in the top five for almost a month.  Seems like Sony is striking the iron while it’s hot, and both Garfield and Stone are definitely on fire.

‘Spider-Man’ begins production in December and will be released in 3-D on July 3, 2012.
