'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' Set Photos Hint at a Major Twist Ending

Spider-Man swings Gwen to triumphant safety in what might be an ode to 'What If?' comic book issue #24.
(Warning: This story contains Major Spoilers!) Spider-Man folklore tells us that Gwen Stacy dies after Spider-Man snaps her neck trying to save her during a fall in a fight with the Green Goblin. Previous set photos have showed us Emma Stone in Gwen's iconic death outfit. But What If? What If director Marc Webb is planning a twist ending that does not follow The Amazing Spider-Man issue #121, but instead is taking a cue from What If? #24, which reimagines the entire scenario, with Peter Parker able to save Gwen instead of causing her whiplash?

This would be the first time that Marvel has brought their cult What If? comic to the screen, and it would provide for a twist longtime Spider-Man fans aren't expecting. Gwen's death has been promised, but maybe it won't come at the end of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 after all.

New set photos once again find Gwen in her iconic green jacket, purple skirt, and Go-Go boots. Only here, we see Peter swinging her to triumphant safety. The big question looming over The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is, will Gwen live or die? Judging from these latest images, its quite possible that fans are being set up to expect her death, only to see her saved and later struck down by a bus Final Destination style. It would make sense. Gwen's death needs to be a shock. It needs to be unexpected. What if Marc Webb is planning a What If? adaptation? We think that would be pretty cool. What do you think?

In related news, we also have shots of Spider-Man in the park, jumping over a barbed wire fence. Check out these other set photos from earlier in the week, which promise we'll get some Spidey-action in the daylight.

    You know, not hinting at Gwen's death for any sequel is a good idea, too :P

    I know this is just speculation, but I love this idea and hope it happens. I would love for a major studio, writers and director who aren't afraid to make some changes to comic story lines and characters. I hope this turns out to be true.

    I have a idea: What if Norman changes himself in the last minutes. He kills Gwen and it wil end with a cliffhanger and for ASM 3 the villain wil be GG and maybe Doc Ock as a secondary villain

    1, this is NOT the regular spider-man story. This entire story frame is based off a separate version of Spider-man. 2, There is not Green Goblin in this film. There is Shocker and Rhino... 3,To put in a Third Villain would not only over populate the movie, which was the down fall of other super hero films, but make it hard to follow story arc on each character's addition and back drop to be against Spider-man.

    Stop over evaluating, most obvious thing is to, let simple on set photos pass, and costume design, it ruins it for everyone even if you include a spoiler alert, just let the photos flow, don't try and alienate everyone's expectations.

    They're not afraid to kill Gwen Stacy, they're afraid to kill Emma Stone.

    Ok why would anyone click on this article? I hate Internet sometimes... Remember the time when we would look at the Behind-The-Scenes like at the end of the VHS tape in the 90s? (And for those are wondering, I clicked, looked away, scroll down :P)

    @paulington Any fan of the spider-man comics should associate Gwen's green jacket (and her whole outfit for that matter) with a very specific spoiler...

    @ridgl Agreed, I'd like to motion that any spoiler-related article just show a consistent photo/logo for the film. In fact, I think the site would look much cleaner if it was done for every article... There's plenty of real-estate for a spoilerish photo once I click the link.

    @ridgl This is up for debate. How does two actors standing together on set reveal a spoiler? We've seen these two actors on set many times together, and we know they are in the same movie.

    Man, that really is the best suit ever seen in a CBM.

    Brian, can you put up a different picture for the thumbnail? something from the comics? I don't know. Its really annoying when you guys say MAJOR SPOILERS REVEALED and put the spoiler in the thumbnail
