Some potentially huge The Amazing Spider-Man 2 spoilers have come our way concerning the fates of Gwen Stacey and Green Goblin. Obviously, if you like your Spidey movies spoiler free you should probably stop reading now, turn off the internet and wait in a dark room until the movie hits theaters next year.
Are the rest of you still with me? OK, let's begin.
First up is Green Goblin, and the rumor that he won't be in the movie.
Apparently there'll be lots of foreshadowing and teasers for his appearance in the third installment, but according to ComicBookMovie, "Norman Osborn (Chris Cooper) hasn't been cured yet and is still dying."
This leads us to the big spoiler of the day and the fate of Gwen Stacey. I'll let ComicBookMovie pick up the slack:
Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) will indeed check out in this film, but perhaps more surprising is that it's been hinted - note we don't know this for certain - that this won't even happen at the end, and Stone's role may not be very large at all. Like I said, that's speculation based on how the info was put across, but I personally wouldn't be surprised in Gwen buys it around the beginning of the third act, giving Spidey a reason to go off the deep end and seek revenge.
Now, I have a few issues with these revelations. There's no source attributed to the leaked information so I'm inclined to take these spoilers with a Gibraltar-sized grain of salt.
Also, in the comics Stacey is killed by the Green Goblin, so if he's not going to be in movie, who will be the one to take Stacey's life. [[/spoiler]]
Is Webb messing with the Spider-Man mythology, which would totally piss off fans, or is this information bogus?
