Amazing Spider-Man Fan Poster Peter’s Pain and grief Over Gwen’s Death

A new fan poster for The Amazing Spider-Man depicts Peter Parker’s (Andrew Garfield) sorrow over the loss of Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone).

Following the cancellation of Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 4, which was set to star Tobey Maguire, Sony rebooted the brand with Andrew Garfield as the iconic web-slinger.

Marc Webb’s more grounded The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) satisfied fans and critics for the most part. The bond between Peter and Gwen is an often acclaimed part of both that film and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014).

Whereas past Spider-Man films have focused on Peter and Mary Jane, The Amazing Spider-Man films featured Peter and Gwen. Because of Garfield and Stone’s palpable chemistry and astute performances, they’re all the better for it. Unfortunately for fans of the relationship, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 follows comic book tradition and includes Gwen’s terrible end. Harry Osborn/the Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan) takes Gwen to the top of a clock tower and effectively drops her down the tower in the film’s closing act. Peter/Spider-Man catches her in his web, but not before she falls to the ground and is instantly dead.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ends with Peter resuming his duties as Spider-Man after a great deal of grief. The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was supposed to come out in 2016, and it would’ve most certainly played a role in the next Sinister Six film. However, the lackluster response to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 led to a pact between Sony and Marvel Studios to reboot the character in the MCU with Tom Holland in the lead role.

Following the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, artist Rico Jr recently shared a The Amazing Spider-Man poster on Instagram. With #MAKETASM3, the piece depicts a half-masked Peter reflecting on Gwen’s death against the background of The Amazing Spider-Man 2’s enemies.

Take a look at the following:

The inclusion of Maguire and Garfield in No Way Home was the film’s worst-kept secret. In the film, both the webslingers (and their enemies) are given closure. In addition, Garfield’s Peter/Spider-Man has a redemptive arc. Following Aunt May’s (Marisa Tomei) death, Maguire and Garfield’s characters visit Holland’s central hero to discuss “great power” and “great responsibility.”
