Just a week after her name was first mentioned in connection with Mary Jane Watson in the new "Spider-Man," it appears that Emma Stone is in fact the studio's first choice for the part.

Stone, along with "Glee" star Dianna Argon, Georgina Haig, Mia Wasikowska ("The Kids Are All Right") and Dominique  McElligott ("Moon"), were being eyed by Sony for roles in the new "Spider-Man," according to a report Friday afternoon on Deadline. Now the site is saying that an offer to Stone is imminent.

When Deadline first announced their list of the five actresses under consideration, Stone as Mary Jane was a slam dunk, as the actress already possesses the red-hair and sexy/aggressive/glib personality that attracted Peter Parker to MJ in th efirst place.

Unfortunately, most reports say that MJ won't be Spidey' primary love interest in the upcoming film, and instead the wall-crawler will be with his old flame Gwen Stacy, a role that Argon, the brilliantly ditzy Quinn on "Glee" would be perfect for.

The silver lining for Stone, however, is that Stacy died an untimely death in the comic books, with Spider-Man eventually marrying Mary Jane.

Stone was great in "Easy A," an uncommonly funny and smart teen comedy, earlier this year, if you haven't seen it yet. She'll next be seen in April in "The Help," about race-relations in the Deep South of the 1960s, and "Crazy, Stupid, Love," alongside Steve Carell, Julianne Moore, Ryan Gosling and Marisa Tomei.
