If, like me, you've probably been wondering how Gwen Stacy dies in the second film.
In the comics, it's the result of Spider-man battling Green Goblin. Gwen falls from the top of a bridge, Spidey tries to save her with a web shot and, instead, ends up snapping her neck.
We've all heard that, in this sequel, Gwen's fate is sealed and she dies. But, how if we don't have a Green Goblin? Surely Sony isn't rewriting THAT particular piece of history, are they?
MovieWeb brings us the following insider scoop:
With the next part of this The Amazing Spider-Man 2 behind-the-scenes breakdown, we get into some heavy story spoilers. So be warned, we will be revealing the true identity of a major villain.
Stop reading if you don't want to know Major Spoilers!
It sounds like a good move for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 to have dropped Mary Jane from its narrative. The sequel as its stands minus Peter's favorite redhead, no matter who ends up playing her, is jam packed with story and characters. As stated above, our source was on set the last day of outside filming on this sequel, and can confirm that Harry Osborn is Green Goblin.
Yes, though we had to wait until Spider-Man 3 to see James Franco as New Goblin, this iteration of the mythos finds Dane DeHaan suiting up as the glider riding genetically altered supervillain during the climax of the film, which will take place at an Oscorp Power Planet.So Goblin shows up at the end of 2 and Gwen DOESN'T die? Guess that's why Sony has already staked a claim for parts 3 and 4 by giving them release dates!
