Amazing Spider-Man 2 MAJOR spoiler…or just over analyzing. You decide

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is definitely one of the movies I look forward to for the year 2014, and after hearing how Mary Jane was cast, I was wondering if they were going to kill off Emma Stone’s character, Gwen Stacy, to make room for Mary Jane (being played by Shailene Woodley). If you know anything about the Marvel Universe, you know that Gwen Stacy was Peter Parker’s first true love until the Green Goblin causes Spider-Man to accidentally kill her as she fell. From a Marvel comic book standpoint she is supposed to die (also in the Ultimate Universe kind of) and has always been as important to Spider-Man as Uncle Ben was. You see it in the famous House of M arc where Spider-Man is married to Gwen Stacy instead of Mary Jane, and whenever he thinks about his failures she is always there in his mind. Gwen Stacy’s death had a major impact on Peter Parker’s psyche and moral code, and even hinting at her death in the movie could make fanboys everywhere both sad and excited.

In this picture you can clearly see what Emma Stone is wearing on the bridge as Gwen Stacy.

This is what she wore in the comics when she died.

Notice any similarities?

Since there are two girls who happen to be ‘frienemies’ vying for the same guy’s attention, it would make sense to kill off one of them so that Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) isn’t the bad guy having to break a heart. He would instead receive the audience’s sympathy, having lost the woman he loved. This would make the sequel a much darker movie and lead up to an angsty third Spider-Man, which who knows what could happen there.

What do you guys think of him having both girls, and a possible death of one of the most beautiful gals in Hollywood?
