Spider-Man 3 Has Gwen Stacy

Bryce Dallas HowardI don’t know if this will make Spider-Man comic fans thrilled or pissed. But it looks like Peter Parker’s first love, Gwen Stacy, has been cast and is in Spider-Man 3… and you just KNOW she’ll be in 4 if there is indeed a 4.

In the comics, the relationship with Gwen ended in tragedy:

The original Green Goblin, Norman Osborn, kidnapped Gwen and took her to the George Washington Bridge, or maybe the Brooklyn Bridge. It’s been changed so many times. In any case, Gwen was knocked off the bridge and Spidey snagged her with a web-line, which snapped her neck.

In all his rage, Spider-Man found the Green Goblin and nearly killed him, but managed enough restraint to keep himself from doing something he would regret later. Then the Goblin tried to catch Spidey from behind, but that ever-present spider-sense warned him in the nick of time and he dodged the goblin-glider. Norman Osborn was impaled upon “a stake of humble tin.” He was believed dead for quite some time.

Does that sound familiar? Yeah… like the end of the first Spider-Man film.

The role of Gwen Stacy has been given to Bryce Dallas Howard, who was probably the only bright spot in The Village. Personally, I’m excited about this news. I think it throws some great conflict potential into the mix… even if it’s not exactly true to the comic itself. Besides, anything that takes attention and screen time away from Kirsten Dunst is a good thing in my books (I don’t mind her in general… I just think she’s horrible as Mary Jane). Your thoughts?
