The actress set to star in the writer/director’s next, still-untitled film, Emma Stone is the subject of a new interview at Interview Magazine, conducted by Cameron Crowe. In addition to quite a bit of in-depth discussion about her life on-screen and off, Stone talks about her role as Gwen Stacy in this past summer’s The Amazing Spider-Man and reveals that she’s rooting for the young Midtown Science High School student to meet the same fate as in the comics.
“[Fans ask] about whether or not the films are going to stay true to her story,” Stone says. “Which I’m hoping they are… Essentially the argument is that Spider-Man kills her by accident. 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.”
Gwen Stacy’s death was originally presented in the now-iconic “The Amazing Spider-Man” #121, published in 1973, ten years into the book’s run. Of course, even if the films adapt that particular storyline, there’s no guarantee that it would happen in the first sequel, currently slated for May 2, 2014.
