Actress Emma Stone has said that she hopes that Gwen Stacy, her character in the new Spider-Man reboot, will meet the same fate as in the comics.
Interviewed by director Cameron Crowe in the latest issue of Interview Magazine, Stone said she was asked regularly about whether or not the films are going to stay true to Stacy’s story.
“[Fan ask] about whether or not the films are going to stay true to her story,” she said. “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 Amazing Spider-Man #121, published in 1973, ten years into the book’s run.
A sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man is slated for release in May 2, 2014.
