Bryce Dallas Howard provided a national audience with her a preview of her new blonde locks for Spider-Man 3 during an appearance on NBC's Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Tuesday.

Howard, a natural redhead, is playing Gwen Stacy in Spider-Man 3, which is currently shooting in California.

Howard said she is already getting different reaction as a blonde.

"It's entirely different," Howard said. "In the last seven days, I've cut lines, I don't have to pay things, which is really strange. This has never happened before in my life."

In real life, Howard said she prefers the red hair. "It suits my personality much better," she said.

SLG Publishing and Disney are teaming for a new chapter to the Tron story with Tron: The Ghost in the Machine, a comic book written by Landry Walker and Eric Jones and drawn by Louie De Martinis.

Tron: The Ghost in the Machine, an ongoing series launches in April, picks up where the video game Tron 2.0 leaves off, bringing you the same thrilling action, as well as an exploration of the effects of the cyberworld on the human psyche.

Here's how SLG describes the book:

"Jet Bradley has escaped from the computer world after being kidnapped and digitized to defeat a nefarious virus. But after his ordeal, Jet can't seem to adjust to the real world. Beset by insomnia and paranoia, he avoids technology as much as possible, leaving him completely unable to function in the modern world. And now something in the computer world wants him back."

Walker and Jones got their first view of the computer world in Disney's 1982 cult hit movie, Tron. "I've loved Tron since I first saw the movie as a kid," Jones said. "The whole concept is so exciting, since it involves more than 'good versus evil' and allows for some pretty good twists and turns."

Walker said that Tron: The Ghost in the Machine will be true to its cinematic and video game roots by not only being an action story but also delving into the mental trauma protagonist Jet Bradley suffers by being forced into the computer world.

"Jet is not a hero," Walker said. "He's just an average person thrust into exceptional, and somewhat horrible circumstances. The story is more about the psychological challenges Jet faces when he's disintegrated and reduced to pure information -- that shift in reality is really going to screw with your head."
