It’s unclear what Gwen Stacy’s role in “Spider-Man: No Way Home” would have been had Emma Stone reprised her beloved part, but concept art from the film teases another unrealized idea involving one of the character’s key scenes in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” that may give us some clues.
On ArtStation, concept artist Phil Saunders shared a selection of keyframes depicting the fight between Spider-Man (Tom Holland) and Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) for the Book of Vishanti, including several scenes from prior “Spider-Man” movies. Among them are Peter Parker’s (Tobey Maguire) fight with Bone Saw McGraw (Randy Savage) in “Spider-Man,” the Oscorp-set finale of “The Amazing Spider-Man,” the church where Eddie Brock (Topher Grace) turns into Venom in “Spider-Man 3,” and the clock tower where Gwen Stacy meets her demise at the hands of the Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan) at the end of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.”
Whether or not this would have been where Stacy shows up, it would have made for some subtle foreshadowing for Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man saving MJ (Zendaya) from meeting a similar fate. Ultimately, we may never know how the actor would have fared in the MCU, but with “Madame Web” introducing a new family of Spider-Women to the big screen, fans on X, formerly known as Twitter, are buzzing for Stone to appear as a live-action Spider-Gwen.
