Why Hasn't Emma Stone Signed On For The Amazing Spider-Man Sequel Yet?
Watch Resident Evil Retribution Online IÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ve always believed Sam Raimi made a big mistake botching the iconic Gwen Stacy storyline, mixing Mary Jane into the Goblin story, then putting the character atop a bridge in the original Spider-Man but letting her live.

Sony confirmed today what should have been obvious: Marc Webb will return to direct The Amazing Spider-Man 2 after his initial film successfully rebooted the franchise and banked a staggering $751 million at the worldwide box office.

But then Sony threw a bit of a curveball by stating Emma Stone was Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½in talksÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ to return as flaxen-haired love interest Gwen Stacy. Watch Step Up Revolution Online. What could possibly be preventing Stone from signing on the dotted line and returning to the franchise? I have a theory: SheÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s trying to figure out how to score a massive payday from only one film instead of two (which Garfield reportedly is attached to do, completing a new Spidey trilogy). Watch Looper Online. And sheÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s negotiating for only one more film because her character wonÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t survive the sequel. We already know this to be true: Stacy dies, tragically, at the hands of the Green Goblin (according to Marvel lore). Watch Looper Online. Webb certainly hinted at the possibility of harm swirling around Gwen, making Peter promise to a dying Capt. Stacy (Denis Leary) that heÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½d leave Gwen out of his amateur heroics.

And Stone, to her credit, didnÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t shy away from reporter questions regarding GwenÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s storied fate while promoting The Amazing Spider-Man, saying GwenÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s death was part of the reason she was interested in playing the role in the first place.

So GwenÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s death in the reincarnated Spider-Man is more a question of Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½when,Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ not Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½if.Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ And in my humble opinion, she needs to die in the next film, creating a kind of dark, depressing Empire Strikes Back ending that sets the stage for a redemptive Spider-Man 3. Watch Snow White and The Huntsman Online. Webb can take the bulk of this next film to introduce Norman Osborn and his Goblin persona. He can conclude The Amazing Spider-Man 2 with GwenÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s death atop the George Washington Bridge. And our devastated hero can seek solace Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ and a reason to fight again Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ in the third and final chapter of this new trilogy.
It was a narrative cop out, and I never forgave him for it. Webb has a chance to redeem the plot, to set things right with SpideyÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s worldÃ¢ï¿½Â¦through some very real pain. Webb told me during an interview that heÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½d like to explore that subject matter. And now that heÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s coming back, IÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½m really hoping Sony and Marvel let him. Maybe Stone signs tomorrow, and it was just a matter of letting the ink dry. But when I saw that she remained Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½in talks,Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ and you know Sony isnÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t going to mess with the Garfield-Stone chemistry, I honestly believe that sheÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s renegotiating a deal that only includes one more movie. And I think weÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½re finally going to see the proper end of Gwen StacyÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s storyline. I canÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t wait.
