"The Amazing Spider-Man 2": Up Close With 'Gwen Stacy'

Take another look @ New York City set images and a video of actress Emma Stone starring as 'Gwen Stacy', the girlfriend of 'Peter Parker'  in Columbia Pictures' currently filming 3D sequel,"The Amazing Spider-Man 2".

" '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..."

The Marvel Comics character 'Gwen Maxine Stacy', was created by writer Stan Lee and illustrator Steve Ditko, first appearing in "The Amazing Spider-Man" #31 (December 1965), as a college student.

Gwen was originally the first true love of 'Peter Parker' before he developed deep feelings for her friend and rival, 'Mary Jane Watson'. 'Norman Osborn', aka 'The Green Goblin' caused Spider-Man to accidentally kill Gwen in "The Amazing Spider-Man" #121 (June 1973).

Both the decision to kill Gwen and the method in which Marvel implemented it remains controversial, but the death became a pivotal point in both Spider-Man’s history and in comic books in general.
