If you are unfamiliar with Gwen Stacy’s fate in the comics, you may want to stop reading now. Comic book adaptations aren’t always exact duplicates of their written counterparts. If they were, what would be the point of making them? In Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man, the director took one of the comics’ defining stories—”The Death of Gwen Stacy”—and re-visualized it so that Green Goblin dropped Mary Jane off the bridge instead of Gwen Stacy, and Spider-Man saved his falling love interest instead of accidentally snapping her neck due to the speed of acceleration being suddenly halted by his web-line. So the big question in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is if director Marc Webb will follow The Amazing Spider-Man #121-122 (June–July 1973), “The Night Gwen Stacy Died.” New set photos may provide some hint.

The film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Shailene Woodley, Paul Giamatti, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, and Sally Field. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2, 2014.

While the photos aren’t definitive proof, check out the scan from the original comic. The wardrobe selection is odd for her character, but looks eerily similar to the outfit in the comic. Adding fuel to the fire, when Emma Stone signed on for the role she sited one of the reasons she signed on to do the role was because of the character’s famous demise.

Official synopsis for The Amazing Spider-Man 2:

In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.

    • In the comics is still no reason for Gwen to die,

    • The death of peter’s parents and uncle was enough for him to handle.
