SAN DIEGO - Emma Stone's name was on the lips of attendees at Comic-Con just a few short years ago, for her appearance in adventure fan favorite "Zombieland." Soon, the "Easy A" actress will be more firmly committed to memory for her role in forthcoming comic book flick, "The Amazing Spider-Man."

The 22-year-old star rocked her signature red locks on the red carpet at Comic-Con, and explained to HitFix a little more about her character Gwen Stacy, what she means to Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) and what it means for her as a growing talent.

And the high-action film seems to have come at a varied time in her career, as she's completed romantic comedy "Crazy, Stupid, Love." and is finishing off a drama ("The Help") and an animated feature ("The Croods").

Check out our video above for the breakdown.

"The Amazing Spider-Man" will be out on July 3, 2012.
