Director Marc Webb Talks About the Shocking Ending to 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' [SPOILERS]

First thing, if you haven't yet seen 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' you should not be reading this article as it contains major spoilers for the ending of the film.
Okay, now that that business is out of the way ... director Marc Webb has been hinting for some time that the events in his film could eventually emulate what occurred in the pages of 'The Amazing Spider-Man' #121, which (last chance) depicts the death of Peter Parker's love interest, Gwen Stacy -- who is played by Emma Stone in the two most recent Spider-Man films.
Now that you've seen 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' we asked director Marc Webb about everything that went into the final shot of Gwen falling off the clock tower, including when it was decided to kill off Gwen (early); if there were any second thoughts; why the original scene had to be re-shot; and why 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' ended on an upbeat note, as opposed to leaving us with a dark ending.

'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' Review

Most of what I know about complex science comes from comic books, so forgive me if my understanding of quantum mechanics is a little off. But, I think it can mean that particles can exist in two states simultaneously. 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' a film loaded with such half-understood notions of difficult scientific concepts, is a quantum movie. It manages to be both awful and entertaining, frequently at the same exact time. The script is ludicrous, even by summer blockbuster standards. The characters behave irrationally and without motivation and the story makes lengthy, frequent pit stops into dull backstory. But, for every moment of tedium and confusion there is a tiny explosion of joy. Director Marc Webb just barely ties this collision of half-baked ideas together in a sticky Spidey bow.

Oh, Jimmy Fallon, you just don't stand a chance. Sure, your lip sync skills are above average, better than what most normal people could show off, and you should be proud. Really! But, let's be honest, 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' star Emma Stone is perhaps the most accomplished lip sync artist to ever hit the 'Tonight Show' stage.

Marc Webb on 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' the 'Sinister Six' Movie and the Future Of J. Jonah Jameson

I met Webb at his SoHo hotel room -- or, if not his room, the room Sony had him sitting in at that particular moment -- to talk about the future of Spider-Man, what exactly Shailene Woodley's role would have been in the final movie had she not been cut, and Webb offers some, let's say, coy hints at the possible return of J.K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson.

Saving the day, getting the girl, being a good guy -- it's all in a day's work for Peter Parker and his alter ego, Spider-Man. But as director Marc Webb notes in this new featurette for 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' Peter's going to learn the hard way in the sequel that he can't have it all because "life doesn't work that way." Webb teases the famous storyline between Peter and girlfriend Gwen Stacy, as well as Spidey's greatest threat yet: the Sinister Six.
