15Gwen Stacy Would Have Been Resurrected As Spider-Woman

Gwen Stacy's fate is well-known to fans of the comics, and her potential death in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was teased months in advance. While the movie had plenty of issues, the relationship between Peter and Gwen wasn’t one of them, so her eventual demise was pretty emotional; the “

Her death appeared to be permanent by the end of the movie, acting as another painful reminder to Peter that being a hero comes at a high cost.

This change would have – somehow – given Gwen spider powers too, leading to her becoming Spider-Woman, who in the comics is an alternate universe version of Gwen. Sony had plans for a solo movie with an unnamed female hero around this time, so it’s not hard to conclude that perhaps Spider-Gwen was being set up for her own adventure.
