Will “The Amazing Spider-Man” take place on the night Gwen Stacy died? Probably not one imagines that Marc Webb and friends are waiting to introduce their version of the Green Goblin before reenacting the iconic moment. But, at the very least, there’s this: Emma Stone herself thinks Gwen has to die on screen. Bold words coming from a bold actress.
Get the details of Stone’s thoughts on Gwen’s eventual demise and much more in today’s round of Tights!
» As promised, Stone on the ultimate fate of Gwen Stacy: “I think that’s a hugely important part of her story and of this incarnation of Spider-Man. I think that was very important to everybody. I think there’s a certain expectation and then there’s a certain awareness of mortality that Gwen has already, so I think that it was important to…just because her father was in the face of death everyday and so is Peter, so I think death always surrounds her. I think it’s a really important element to her character. I mean, she, as fans know, is kind of most famous for how she departs. So that’s a weird thing to play, knowing about such an iconic part of her existence.” [IGN via CBM]
