The fate of Gwen Stacey is debatable. Is it a spoiler? Even though the storyline was introduced in 1973, some folks claim it is. Well, if you feel as strongly, than maybe you should stop reading. Major Spoiler, most people know that Gwen dies at the hands of the Goblin when he throws her off a bridge, snapping her spine before Peter Parker can save her. With actress Emma Stone an important and very popular part of the new movie franchise, many have wondered how her fate will play out in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Set photos reveal that she will wear her iconic 'death' outfit in the movie. On a bridge no less. But that doesn't necessarily mean she dies in this film, or even in The Amazing Spider-Man 3. We'd think it would have to eventually come, but maybe Marc Webb is changing the mythology to bring an unexpected twist to what most fans already expect will happen. Why wouldn't he want to keep audiences on their toes. Its no fun if you know exactly how something is going to happen.
Emma Stone recently spoke with Total Film about the impending fate of Gwen Stacy, revealing that this incarnation of the Marvel character is no damsel in distress. In fact, she can't think of too many times that Peter Parker comes to Gwen's rescue in the movie.
"[There's] not many. I can think of one important instance...She saves him more than he saves her. She's incredibly helpful to Spider-Man...He's the muscle, she's the brains."
Personally, that meant that she didn't participate in as many stunts as some of the other actors.
"I don't get to do too many crazy stunts. She gets herself in the middle of stuff, that's for sure! I do get webbed to a car. There's shit like that."
About her death, though? The actress isn't saying a word until after we've seen the movie.
What do you think? Do you want to see Gwen killed off sooner than later? Or do you think they should keep Emma Stone around for the duration of this franchise?
