If there’s one thing Gwen Stacy is famous for, it’s dying. Peter Parker’s first love met her end in a battle on top of a New York bridge with the Green Goblin, a death that shook both the title and the comic industry itself.
Now with the character back in the cinematic mix with Sony’s “The Amazing Spider-Man” reboot, the question has been raised as to whether her onscreen counterpart will meet that grim fate.
Speaking to Cameron Crowe for Interview magazine, actress Emma Stone is all for the idea – “Essentially the argument is that Spider-Man kills her by accident. So the person she loves is the person who kills her, which is the most horrifying thing. Apparently people unsubscribed to the comic book when that happened because they were just so flipped-out over it. But, of course, I want to stay true to that.”
Producer Matt Tolmach has previously said they plan at least three films in this series, and with the $704 million worldwide haul of the first film they are likely to get it. If those involved were to agree on featuring the death of Stacy, could that become a big plot point of the first sequel which is already scheduled for May 2014?
