London: Actress Emma Stone prefers Spiderman over Batman and Superman, saying the webbed wonder is the "sexiest super-hero".

The 22-year-old star, who is embarking on the role of Peter Parker`s love interest in `The Amazing Spiderman`, admits that her preparations for the character has made her understand the romantic appeal of the super-hero, reported Contactmusic.

"Batman`s great, but this isn`t a rich guy building a suit. And Superman`s great, but this isn`t an untouchable guy like we`ve never seen before on this planet," she said.

Stone, who will appear opposite to `The Social Network` star Andrew Garfield in the fourth installment of the Spiderman franchise, said that she prefers the "boy next door" image of the super-hero.

"This [Spiderman] is someone you could go to school with and work with, that all of sudden, one day is able to fight off superhuman villains. It`s pretty incredible. I get it now. I really do," she added.

Stone will currently be seen in hit comedy `Crazy, Stupid, Love` and will star in another summer blockbuster, based on multi-million selling novel `The Help`.
