How did Gwen Stacy die in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was same as TASM issue 121?


Was it whiplash Spider-Man killed her accidentally by webbing her to late too fast or was it the shock of the fall.

    Gwen Stacy's death in the comics is a bit different than the film.

    She was kidnapped by Norman Osborne as the Green Goblin, was knocked unconscious, then thrown off the Brooklyn Bridge. Peter tried to catch her with his web, but Gwen's neck snapped in the whiplash.

    Peter then went on a brutal fight with the Green Goblin, that ended in Norman's death. The final fight in Sam Raimi's first Spider-Man film is based on this comic confrontation.

      To clarify, it was whiplash that killed Gwen. In the original comic art, you can see the SNAP! sound effect near Gwen's head when Peter catches her.

    It was almost the same.

    In TASM 121, her neck broke because of thw whiplash to being cauhgt by Peter's web. For a long time he blamed himself for that.

    In the film however, her head hits the ground. He simply isn't fast enough to save her.

      TASM 2 would have been more successful if they left her death for TASM 3 there is a lot going on in that movie it’s fun watch but it was failure of Spider-Man movie I think TASM movies had lot potential wasted.
