Fans of the "Spider-Man" comic book series know Gwen Stacy well. They also know her fate (and if you don't want to know her fate, close this web page quickly). Actress Emma Stone was coy when speaking to MTV (embedded interview) about that, on Tuesday.
Given the predestined future of Gwen Stacy (per the comics) and with the hiring of actress Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson for the 2014 sequel to "The Amazing Spider-Man," the first film in the rebooted movies series, there's speculation Stacy's fate may come to pass sooner rather than later.
On the other hand, as fans of "The Walking Dead" know, just because an event is in the comics doesn't mean it will be in other media. Or will it?
Fans of the comic know that Stacy tragically dies when the Green Goblin throws her off the George Washington Bridge. Although Spider-Man snags her with a webline, when he pulls her up he finds she is dead. It is unclear, and probably haunted Peter Parker until his own death, if Stacy died before -- or after -- he snagged her, as the implication is he could have snapped her neck when he halted her fall so suddenly.
Since that's already known, what of Stone's character. Stone would only say that Woodley was cool. In the comics, Peter Parker eventually married Mary Jane Watson.
She's really cool. I went to dinner with her. She's really, really nice. She's a cool girl.
The new "Spider-Man" film is due in theaters on May 2, 2014 and stars Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker / Spider-Man, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson, Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn, and "Django Unchained" actor Jamie Foxx as Electro.
