Anyone familiar with the Spider-Man mythos knows Gwen Stacy. She was Peter Parker's first true love, and because of the relationship she shared with him, she was destined to be put in harm's way, eventually ending up dead during a battle between Spider-Man and his archnemesis, The Green Goblin (aka Norman Osborn). The character was taken out and supplanted by Mary Jane Watson in the first two Sam Raimi films (only for her to be introduced in the third film), but the new reboot to be helmed by Marc Webb puts the blondie back in the spotlight as the main love interest, with actress Emma Stone playing the coveted role opposite Andrew Garfield's Peter Parker. However, the big question in most fans minds was this: Would Gwen's tragic tale of death be told in the first film? SPOILERS AHEAD after the pic:
The answer is a simple NO. Via a post in io9 and during an interview in The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Stone says during a conversation that she may be sticking around in the long run for a few more Spidey films, suggesting that there are more tales to be told before a possible "death" story ever gets considered. That's probably a good thing, considering that Mary Jane has gotten more exposure as Spidey's love interest and one time wife. It's still a long way til 2012 for the reboot gives viewers a chance to check out Stone's performance as Gwen, but here's hoping we see something good and promising when the time comes.
