At the end of Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter spent time mourning Gwen Stacy only to get over it pretty quickly and jump back into the Spidey suit. According to a new interview with Andrew Garfield, the third movie would’ve still built upon Gwen’s death.
Speaking to Uproxx, he said:
“I was actually starting to workshop ideas with Alex Kurtzman, who was going to be writing it. We thought to kind of start from the base level, the foundational level of where have we left Peter and where do we want to see him go and whatâ€™s logical. And how do we build upon where we left off with this deep, desperate moment with Gwen? So, yeah, we got to some pretty heavy places and I was really excited to kind of explore it and be involved on the ground level like that. But, anyway, it wasnâ€™t meant to be. As I say, Iâ€™m just really excited that I get to watch.”
So would this mean they would retcon the rushed ending to Amazing Spider-Man 2? It almost sounds like the first part of the movie would be Peter moping around again after Gwen’s death. And that’s why it’s a good thing Marvel is making the next movie.
