NBC has provided Superhero Hype! with a high resolution photo of Bryce Dallas Howard on Tuesday’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Viewers got a first look at the actress’ new look for the role of Gwen Stacy in director Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3. You can view the image in full here or by clicking the thumbnail on the left!
Gwen is pivotal in Spider-Man lore as Peter’s high school crush, his girlfriend and his first love. She ended up being kidnapped by the Green Goblin and died during a bridgetop battle in “Amazing Spider-Man” issue 121. Columbia Pictures is keeping a tight lid on the third movie’s story line, though it is known that Gwen is the third part of a love triangle that includes Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson.
Filming on the anticipated third installment started in January.
