Yesterday, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 star Felicity Jones played coy about portraying Black Cat in The Amazing Spider-Man 3, which didn't come as too big of a surprise, since Sony Pictures pushed the sequel to 2018 earlier this year, in favor of the spin-off The Sinister Six. Today we have a rumor that may be fairly surprising, since it involves the possible resurrection of Emma Stone's Gwen Stacy.
Christian Today reports that Sony is considering using a story line from the Spider-Man comics, where a distraught Empire State University professor, who fell in love with Gwen Stacy, started to lose his mind after she died, creating a clone of her and turning himself into a villain known as The Jackal. This story was part of Marvel's "Clone Sagas" in the comic books, that took place in the 1970s and 1990s.
It's also possible that she could return in Sony's rumored all-female Spider-Man spin-off, but there is little we know about that potential project. Gwen Stacy has been brought back from the dead a few different times in the comics, most notably as The Jackal's Clone and as the human disguise of the Carnage.
Naturally, this has not been confirmed yet, but it's possible this story line is being tossed around at Sony, since they have plenty of time to come up with a solid script in the wake of The Amazing Spider-Man 2's disappointing box office take and poor reception from fans and critics alike.
This story from Christian Today also includes a rumor from April about Miles Morales appearing in future movies (which was shot down shortly after the news first broke) and the rumored possibility of Spider-Man joining Marvel Studios' Civil War story line, which starts with Captain America: Civil War.
