“[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.
