Although the second film in our new, rebooted Spider-Man franchise has yet to go into production, we’ve already got news on what the entire planned trilogy may bring us. As we know, back over the summer — before Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man even hits theaters – Emma Stone spoke about the storyline of her character Gwen Stacy and like the comic story the Death of Gwen Stacy, she hopes the filmmakers follow through with her demise.
Now a few months later, as the sequel’s cast is coming together, we’ve got some confirmation on where this series is headed. After The Descendants star Shailene Woodley was attached to take the Mary Jane Watson role, THR has given us an update in their story on how the star is also looking at another major franchise with Divergent. First off, they confirm Woodley has been cast, but for this sequel it will be a “very small role,” leading into a major part in the third film.
In that possible final film, Stacy would be killed following an incident on the George Washington Bridge, if the filmmakers are pulling directly from the comics. As rumored, the Green Goblin would be returning as villain and throws Stacy off the bridg. Spidey thinks he saves her by catching her by the leg, only to realize she’s already dead. Peter Parker then has a major internal struggle as he’ll never know if he killed her by snapping her neck or if it was due to Osborn. We’re still a ways off to see if that exact finale is coming to the screen, so in the meantime check out Stone’s interview from over the summer below.
