Earlier this week we got our first peek of actress Emma Stone’s new hair do. Typically, a style change isn’t breaking news on our site but when it has to do with a certain movie character it is. Stone is known for her red locks but she’s a natural blonde and because of her new role in Spider-Man she had to return to her roots. She plays Gwen Stacy the love interest of Peter Parker, and over at JustJared they’ve posted some photos of her on set and in costume. Take a look…

In the photos, we see Stacy holding an umbrella in what looks like a funeral scene. According to the comics, Stacy’s dad George Stacy (played by Denis Leary) dies in a confrontation between Spider-Man and Doctor Octopus. Perhaps this is his funeral but instead of Doctor Octopus, Spidey gets into it with The Lizard, who’ll be played by Rhys Ifans. Or maybe he’ll become a casualty of the second string villain Van Adder who’s only appeared in one issue of the Spider-Man comic? Talk about a brief run. This is all speculation but what do you think is going on in the scene?

Spider-Man is scheduled to hit theaters on July 3, 2012.

What do you think of the first photos of Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy in Spider-Man? What do you think of her look?
