Oh no … is Gwen Stacy doomed?
Things don’t look so good for Peter Parker’s ladylove, as a recent set pic from “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ reveals Emma Stone in an outfit that looks a lot like the one her comic book counterpart was wearing when she fell (and we mean really fell) victim to the dastardly deeds of the Green Goblin. Purple skirt: Check. Sea foam green overcoat: Check. Black boots: Check! Yes, Stone’s frock is suspiciously similar to her comic book counterpart’s… and at her most inopportune time.
Gwendolyn Maxine Stacy made her debut in “The Amazing Spider-Man” #31 (December 1965), created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. She was Peter Parker’s original love interest before he started developing feelings for her somewhat more popular rival, Mary Jane Watson. Gwen met her fate in “The Amazing Spider-Man” #121 (June 1973), in which the Green Goblin discovers Spider-Man’s true identity and kidnaps Gwen. When the Goblin throws her off the George Washington Bridge, Spidey catches her leg with a string of web but later discovers that she’s dead.
The rather brutal death of Gwen Stacy was controversial amongst fans and marked a turning point in both the arc of “The Amazing Spider-Man” and in comic books in general. So far, Hollywood has avoided this dark chapter in comics history, as the previous big-screen incarnation of Gwen in Sam Raimi’s original “Spider-Man” trilogy (played by Bryce Dallas Howard) managed to make it to the closing credits of “Spider-Man 3.” This new “Spider-Man” series, however, might indeed be “going there,” if the new set pic is any indication.
Will Gwen’s big-screen fate match that of the comics? Stay tuned, web-heads-“The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ opens May 2, 2014.
