A better version of the AMAZING SPIDER-MAN promo pic of Gwen and Peter.
I think the idea of retelling Spidey’s origin is pretty
unnecessary ridiculous, but I’m all for a Gwen & Peter romance. I know their love is doomed, but it’s really one of the better loves in all of the fictional mediums, and Mary Jane Watson would never have been with Peter if not for Gwen.
(And I’m not saying that as some sort of “Team Gwen” member or “Down With MJ” guy; I love MJ and Peter, especially the Ultimate version of the two, and I’m a big proponent of married Peter Parker. I’m saying this from the historical and fictional standpoint of, had it not been for Gwen and everything that happened to and with her, Peter would never have sought solace in MJ’s arms. Gwen was Peter’s girl, his #1, his one and only. And he lost her. And he never got over it. To this day, she haunts him and everything he does. Want to cry? Read Spider-Man: Blue.)
(I realize I’ve never had a Gwen Stacy, but I believe my Gwen is out there, somewhere,
waiting to get thrown off a bridge. And once my Gwen’s broken my heart, I will then be able to meet my Mary Jane, aka a hot model actress, who will make it all better. And I’ll live happily ever after. Until my aunt is dying and I make a deal with the devil to undo it all.)
Gwen deserves her story told in cinema. And not in a haphazard, bastardized Spider-Man 3 way either.
So, anyways, next summer should be pretty amazing.
