If a certain set of spoiler-heavy set photos didn’t have you worried about Gwen Stacy’s fate in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, then new comments from the film’s leading lady should do the job.
Emma Stone recently spoke with SFX about returning to the role of Gwen for the currently shooting sequel, and she made it clear she wants to stay faithful to the character’s tragic comic book history.
“Essentially the argument is that Spider-Man kills her by accident,” she said, referring to whiplash Gwen suffers when Spidey catches her during a fall from a bridge. “So the person she loves is the person who kills her, which is the most horrifying thing.”
She continued, “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.”
Those comments, combined with the aforementioned set photos and an earlier report that Sony is building to the “Death of Gwen Stacy” story arc, are more than enough reasons for Peter-Gwen shippers to start sweating web fluid.
Directed by Marc Webb, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 also stars Andrew Garfield, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Shailene Woodley, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti and Sally Field. It opens May 2, 2014.
