There’s a new The Amazing Spider-Man 2 featurette video making the Internet rounds and it focuses on the sometimes difficult relationship between Peter (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen (Emma Stone).
They’ve got some interesting sound bites from Stan Lee, Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, and director Marc Webb.As much as we all like the villains and battles that come with Spider-Man, the personal relationships of Peter Parker are an important and driving part of what makes Peter a hero.
Those that have read Spider-Man comics know that before Mary Jane, there was Gwen. Gwen’s fate was one that still haunts Peter’s nightmares and has had ripple effects all of his relationships.
I’m glad that Gwen is being portrayed as a young woman with dreams and plans of her own and not just Spider-Man’s girlfriend. It will only add to the emotional impact of what’s to come.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 swings its way onto theater screens May 2nd.
