While preparing for the end The Amazing Spider-Man 2Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone go to great lengths to capture the complete grief of Gwen Stacy’s tragic death. Despite Garfield’s time in the iconic suit across The Amazing Spider-Man And, having been met with mixed critical reviews, there is still a great deal of love for the projects among the Marvel fan base. Much of that affection goes back to Garfield himself, who remains a star as famous as Tom Holland and Tobey Maguire.
Capping the warm reception Garfield received from fans after his debut as Spidey was his wonderful chemistry with Stone, who played Peter Parker in love with Gwen Stacy. The two colleagues who became romantically involved while shooting The Amazing Spider-Man, immediately recognized by fans for their natural and honest on-screen connection. It made Gwen’s death (at the hands of Peter’s damaged friend Harry Osborne, no less) quite devastating to most viewers.
Currently, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 VFX Supervisor Jerome ChenIn reveals the methods Garfield and Stone used to capture the appropriately disturbing sequences in Sean O’Connell’s new book, With Great Power: How Spider-Man Conquered Hollywood During the Golden Age of Comic Book Films (Across CBR). In order to fully translate the agony Peter felt from Garfield over the catastrophic loss, he and Stone agreed not to see each other for a week before filming the sequence. Check out the passage from the book below:
I remember Andrew and [Gwen Stacy actor] whatever [Stone] They deliberately did not see each other for a week. Andrew: I don’t want to see you! When you come to this scene, you have to pretend like you’re dead to me. It was very quiet. The groups were almost always very quiet. [Director] Mark [Webb] Likes to work and is very focused. So it was a very quiet, completely closed group. I just remember Andrew came and cried uncontrollably. It’s been hours. It was exhausting but powerful.
How did Gwen’s death affect The Amazing Spider-Man 3
Despite Garfield’s tremendous efforts in the titular role, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 No sequel has received any potential trilogy ending. This left the direct effects of Gwen’s death in Garfield’s Spidey somewhat murky, with the film’s final scene assuring that he would return to fighting crime without completely abandoning the psychological scars that might remain from his loss. Not only from the scene of the fall of Gwen the Killer himself, but also from the descriptions of Garfield’s intense emotion during its creation, it is plausible that the most damaged Spider-Man could have appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man 3.
Back to last year’s role in the MCU’s ultimate victory Spider-Man: There is no room for homeGarfield’s Spidey teamed up with Holland and Maguire’s variants of the web’s swing hero, which gave some suggestions as to where his character might be. The Amazing Spider-Man 3. Almost self-explanatory to his young self, Peter Garfield as a Dutch vengeful looking to stalk Willem Dafoe Green Goblin to kill Aunt May, confesses to bitterness and violence against his enemies after Gwen’s death. While it might be interesting to see a version of Spider-Man that didn’t pull his punches, it might be somewhat contradictory to what makes the hero so special to fans. Spidey was always and still is a vision to choose the righteous path, no matter the setbacks that marred his life; Garfield’s rescue of MJ at Redemption for Gwen’s loss was a consequence more appropriate to his character’s story than falling into despair. Then again, as Garfield’s Spider-Man continues to be popular, he’s always capable of powerful moments like in The Amazing Spider-Man 2fans may see a continuation of his arc.
