Did Emma Stone confirm a massive spoiler for The Amazing Spider-Man 2?

May. 28, 2013by:

Spider-Man

I shouldn't have to warn you since the words "confirm", "massive" and "spoiler" are in the headline but in case you missed it somehow...yeah this is a giant spoiler. Scroll past Spidey to read more. And don't say I didn't warn you.

Spider-Man

At the beginning of the month some pictures surfaced from THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 of Emma Stone wearing the same outfit worn by Gwen Stacy when she died in the comics. Filming for the movie was also taking place at the Manhattan Bridge, which is where Stacy died during a battle between Spider-Man and the Green Goblin. So if we do the math correctly, that means Gwen Stacy is going to die in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, right?

Emma Stone spoke to SFX and she talked about wanting to be faithful to the original comic involving Gwen Stacy's death:

"Essentially the argument is that Spider-Man kills her by accident," Stone said. "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."

This isn't quite a confirmation that Stacy will indeed die in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 but it definitely seems like a possibility. One thing they might not be staying true to though is who Spider-Man is battling when Stacy dies. Chris Cooper is in the film as Norman Osborn but will the Green Goblin make an appearance? The way she explains her character's death as "essentially" an accident makes me think that a different villain might be involved with her death, especially if Osborn isn't the Green Goblin yet. It's just a theory but it wouldn't surprise me considering some of the differences we've seen already between THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 and the comics. If that's the case it might irk some hardcore Spider-Man fans considering how important the character's death is to Spider-Man's history. 

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 is currently filming and will be in theaters on May 2nd, 2014.

Extra Tidbit: Would you be OK with Spider-Man fighting a different villain when Gwen Stacy kicks the bucket or should it be Green Goblin?

Considering the amount of people outraged by the Mandarin, I'm kinda shocked by the amount of people who wouldn't care if it was the Green Goblin or not involved in Gwen Stacy's death. It'd be like if they made a Batman movie based on the Death In The Family arc and it was Scarecrow that beat Robin to death with a crowbar

I just naturally assumed

I assumed the second that they cast a Gwen Stacey that she would eventually die, whether it's after 3 movies, in the first one or at the end of this one. If it is true, I would be okay with it but would love to see her character explored a little more if they do.

If she dies I'm pretty sure it'll be officially spoiled somewhere within the hundred-someteenth set of BTS photos to be posted online between now & opening night.

At least they are going with the classic version of her death, whether it happens in this one or the 3rd it doesnt matter. Carnage kills her in the Ultimate time-line up and it wasn't quite as effective as Osborn performing the deed. Regardless of whether people know she dies or not, it can still be a very intense and emotional scene if done right.

I'm relieved to hear that Emma Stone wants to be faithful to the original comic involving Gwen Stacy's death, the one where Spidey lost her during a battle with black hoodie Electro and the midget ED 209 incarnation of the Rhino.

I'm a wee foggy on the Gwen Stacy death, but depending on how it's handled in the movie, it doesn't really matter whether or not it's Green Goblin right? Because ***SPOILER*** Spider-Man indirectly kills her trying to save her, but snaps her neck in the process, right?? So, as long as it's handled well, it doesn't matter.

GWEN STACY DIES IN THE COMICS!!!?

I'm just kidding I totally knew that already. I don't mind if it's Green Goblin or not that offs spidey's second to main squeeze I just hope the movies good. Like, 20 times better than the first one good. Like, I'll actually give half a shit afterward that they're continuing to make these films good. That's all I want.

This is kind of the worst kept secret right? I mean, part of the allure of seeing Gwen Stacy is too see that dramatic scene play out with some real acting.

Spoilers nowadays really do not bother me actually, it's just the sign of the times. If they are trying to stay true to the comic, then most fanboys know Gwen dies. Just hope they don't change it too much, unlike Iron Man 3, which didn't really bother me though.

Her genuine, entertaining chemistry with Andrew Garfield was one of the very best things about The Amazing Spider-Man. I can't help but feel it would be a waste to have her leave the series so early. But what happened to Gwen Stacy has to happen to Gwen Stacy eventually.

Perhaps, Emma Stone wants her character killed off such as her Gwen Stacy character is killed off in the comics. Most likely, Stone has many projects that interest her, not just the Spidey franchise. In this case, the studio and actress are in a win-win situation. Sony wants emotional impact in their movie. Stone wants to get on with her career. Fortunately for both, the source material allows the story to move in a certain direction.

Hey, wouldn't it be fucken hilarious if Amazing Spidey 2

Hey, wouldn't it be fucken hilarious if Amazing Spidey 2 ends with a creepy Dr. Miles Warren retrieving the Stacy body or something? And, general fans don't know what is going on even though comics fans do. And, the non-comic fans think some nasty-ass necrophilia is going on as the credits roll while the knowing comic geeks are all excited. Then, the general audience thinks the comic geeks are a bunch of aroused corpse-fucking weirdos throughout the theatre. That situation would be funny to me. Then, mid-credits, Thanos appears with flowers in one hand and his . . . and then the comic geeks are seriously disturbed with everyone else. Webb should do that. Webb and Sony WOULD do that.

I don't care. Amazing Spider-Man 1 was a greater abomination than the necrophiliac gang-bang that I just suggested. I ain't seeing the next movie.

Probably sums up my opinion of this movie that I decided to read the spoiler. In any case, I'm not really bothered on this matter - the comic book event happened a very long time before I ever started reading Spider-Man comics...but even so, I have no issues with comic book stories playing out differently to the way it went down in comics in general. Honestly, who gets a kick out of seeing things go down exactly as they happened in the comics? Why watch the movie? Just read the comics

Honestly, who gets a kick out of seeing things go down exactly as they happened in the comics? Why watch the movie? Just read the comics again. So long as it's done well and the main points /issues /outcomes are at play, what does it matter?

Among many of the crimes Spider-Man 3's is guilty of...was devaluing the significance of Uncle Ben's death to Peter. I mean, if someone else killed his uncle...other than the man he let go...how can the consequences of failing to grasp with great power comes great reasonability point still hold true. Suddenly, it wasn't Parker's faulty his uncle died...unless you want say...well it's Parker's faulty his uncle was waiting for him in the first place. Whilst true...it hardly holds the same value as letting the guy who goes on to kill his uncle get away when all he had to do was grab him…because Parker was angry for being short changed – money he needed for a very superficial purpose.

The same argument can be made to movies adapted from novels or plays. Thing is, if it was a classic novel or play and more people were going to see the movie than read the book then there is a legitimate reason for not making too many

The same argument can be made to movies adapted from novels or plays. Thing is, if it was a classic novel or play and more people were going to see the movie than read the book then there is a legitimate reason for not making too many changes. Imagine if you were writing an essay on Romeo and Juliet and you hadn't read the play and had only watched the Leonardo DiCaprio movie. You'd probably get an F. On second thought, that serves you right.

For comic book movies, sometimes the movie is better than the comic: X-Men 2 was better than God Loves Man Kills and Watchmen was better than Watchmen, which was a bit pompous at times, although the movie was still faithful, probably too faithful for its own good, to the comic. On the other hand, X-Men 3 wasn't as good as any of the comics and Wolverine lacked the emotional wallop that the comics had. (In the comics, Wolverine had no memories after the procedure and was only able to regain memories after years living in Canada. In the movie he was able to take out a helicopter hours after the procedure was over.)

If someone other than Goblin kills Stacy I'd be okay with that. It would have to WORK FOR THE MOVIE though, like the changes in IM3 worked for it.:-)

In the Ultimate comics, and TAS franchise is based mostly on it, it's Venom (or is it Carnage) who kills Gwen... And she later comes back... So, who knows. By the way, remember in the first Raimi's Spiderman, how the Goblin almost killed MJ the same way he killed Gwen in the comics...

I'm with ModHip, in that I believe (and hope) they pull a Spider-Man Into Darkness and the Goblin shows up as the Main Villain. Even though i was originally against having the Goblin again since I felt the first film was unnecessary and I did'nt want another retelling of Goblins origin.

But you can't do this story justice with two corny ass characters like Electro and Rhino. They've never been more than side Villains to me. I think Rhino will just be the opening scene, like an everyday in

I think Rhino will just be the opening scene, like an everyday in the life of Spiderman, and Electro will be the supposed Villain. But halfway though, the story completely changes and the Goblin emerges as the real Villain. That's how I wish it would go. Just my two cents.

Who gives a shit? I mean really, in the comics the importance of Gwen's death is not about Green Goblin killing her, the importance is what her death represents to the dual life of Peter Parker/Spiderman. With great power came great responsibility and he failed. In the comics he takes that failure and moves forward in life carrying this burden as he continues to protect people as Spiderman but also protect his loved ones as Peter Parker. So regardless of who ultimately kills Gwen Stacey,

Fanboys, it's ok if they make changes in the movie, I will guarantee you the sun will rise tomorrow and the world will not end.

Spider-Man Into Darkness?

It'll be the same but slightly different kind of!

Tidbit... as a Spidey purist I would be a little miffed at someone other than Gobbie being the adversary for this milestone... but the filmmakers' hands are KINDA tied, I think. I'm not the biggest fan of Raimi's films because of their alterations to the comics (although I'm totally fine with Iron Man 3 because it works for the MOVIE and I never read Iron Man books, so I realize I'm unfairly biased here), and while I do find Webb's 2012 film

I'll still openly check this out, though - everything we've seen from the production thus far has been promising in my book, and although I go in cautiously, at this point I think it could emerge my favorite Spidey film yet.

Gwen should die the same in the upcoming movie the way she died in the comics. By the hand of Spider Man while fighting Green Goblin. If he fights another villain, it takes away the impact from the comic books and source material.

If Webb was smart he wouldn't change that aspect of the story.

I disagree soloist, hate to keep using it, but look at Burton's Batman, He made The Joker the killer of Bruce's parents to add a little more fuel to the fire between the two, that wasn't in the comics and seemed to work out fine. Was it unnecessary? Maybe, but nobody complained about it.

Plus, I haven't gotten that far in the ultimate spider-man comics but doesn't gwen die by venom's hands in that series?

I completely agree with Soloist. Most viewers today are probably not old enough to have been affected by Gwen's death the way us old folks were, but I would be upset if it wasn't the Green Goblin. And Tim Burton's Batman movies SUCKED, and many of us did bitch about the Joker killing Bruce's parents... we just didn't have internet go do it on.

Tidbit and opinion.

Tidbit: Ya I'd be fine with Spidey fighting a different villain resulting in Gwen's death depending on how the story responds to the death. On one end, Rhino or Electro being partially responsible for Gwen's demise, it'd be really weird (seeing that both aren't really that big of villains in terms of having an effect in Peter Parker's life) but depending on the reaction and story of what this sequel is trying to do, I'd be interested in the change.

As for this article, it's just further
