In an interview with Superhero Hype, Emma Stone and Marc Webb spoke about the end of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. If you haven't seen the movie yet, this is your last warning to click away and avoid being spoiled. You can see highlights of the interview with Webb, as well as a video interview with Stone, below:
On trying to misdirect the media at Comic-Con: "That whole thing was a charade because everybody was trying to get us to admit it, which is annoying. There are some people trying to trick you into revealing something, then there's all these other people who are like, ‘You revealed too much!' You can't win."
On the death of Gwen Stacy in the comics: "It's a controversial thing in the comic, certainly. People flipped the f*ck out, but it also ushered in a new era of comics. It changed Spider-Man but it changed all of comics because people took it seriously. It's like ‘Game of Thrones.' When somebody pulls out a blade, you're like, ‘I don't know what the f*ck's going to happen.' And that's important, that kind of drama. It's important that actions have consequences. I think that it's easy to lose track of the idea that these people are dealing with really dangerous elements of the universe."
On how Stacy's death meant they had to introduce the Green Goblin: "We were very careful to adhere to that. I think in this movie, we reverse engineered everything from that event. We knew that the Goblin had to do it, but who the Goblin was, I think we had some leeway because there was a precedent in the comics that Harry actually did turn into the Goblin, but we wanted to kind of withhold that. We knew if we just made him the only villain, the cat would've been out of the bag."
