Since pictures from the set were leaked of a police funeral with Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) in attendance, there have been speculations as to whose demise was met. In a recent interview, Denis Leary (who plays Captain George Stacy) may have accidentally let out that information. Spoiler Warning!
When asked about the funeral scene and its significance to his character's fate, Leary stated, ""I'm not allowed to say anything about the ending of 'Spider-Man' — or the ending of 'Rescue Me,' " he told us at the opening festivities for the Tribeca Film festival. "It's verboten! I can't tell you!"
While this isn't a direct statement, it leads leads to the speculation of fans that will break down every sentence to gather more meaning than what is conveyed at the surface. By letting it be known that the scene happens at the end of the film, it could be concluded that whoever will be sent off is important to the story.
The death of Captain George Stacy in Amazing Spider-Man #90 made a huge impact on the title and the character as it gave Peter Parker a new charge in watching over Gwen Stacy and gave the Wall Crawler a huge amount problems, in that he was implicated in the killing. If the character does pass in this film, it will deviate a bit from the comics as the law officer died as the result of collateral damage in a battle between the Web Slinger and his arch nemesis Dr. Octopus, who has not been confirmed as the villain of the movie The Amazing Spider-Man.
The Amazing Spider-Man, which is now in production and is being shot entirely in 3D, will be released on July 3rd, 2012. The film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, Martin Sheen, and Sally Field. The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt and Alvin Sargent and Steve Kloves based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Laura Ziskin, Avi Arad, and Matt Tolmach are producing the Marvel Entertainment production for Columbia Pictures.
