Emma Stone, who so convincingly went blond to play Peter Parker's love interest in Marc Webb's new take on the webslinger, revealed that Gwen isn't gonna take a dive off a bridge anytime soon.

Gwen Stacy's death is a pivotal moment in Spider-Man's history in that it makes manifest the dangers of the life he leads, to himself and to others. And the guilt Peter carried over Uncle Ben gets amplified when he learns that his attempt to save Gwen after the Green Goblin threw her from the top of the George Washington Bridge—using a web to stop her fall—is what killed her.

So it's no surprise, really, that Sony and Webb don't want to waste all that drama in their first film of what they're clearly envisioning as a new franchise and that they've signed Stone to a multipicture deal.

"There's a few Spider-Men, so I may have to keep at it for a couple of years," Stone revealed during a recent appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.
