A new development for the Amazing Spider-Man spin off movie, Venom has surface as Gwen Stacy’s alter-ego Carnage is added in the movie.
According reports ComicBook.com, Sony confirms that they had plans on using the Ultimate version of Carnage as Venom’s adversary in the film, but the producers felt that having Gwen Stacy back as a vicious psychotic monster will likely get a negative response to the fans as Gwen Stacy already made a good impression on them, not just in the movies, but also in the comic book community.
In the Ultimate Marvel Universe, Gwen Stacy was killed by the rampaging Carnage symbiote as the creature absorbed her life force during their first encounter. In later issues, Peter Parker/Spider-Man was shocked to see Gwen alive and well, but with no memories of what happened to her before her death. It was revealed that it was in fact the Carnage symbiote itself who have taken the form of Gwen Stacy after the latter was killed and the creatures thinks that she is Gwen Stacy.
With that Ultimate version of Carnage hinted in the Venom this begs the question. Will Emma Stone reprise the role of Gwen Stacy in the spin off?
Screenrant conducted an interview with Emma Stone before regarding her character’s comeback in the Amazing Spider-Man movies.
“I don’t know… is it? There could be a-I don’t know, there’s a whole plotline that could happen that may bring her back”
A blogger from Comicvine cited that if Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb decided on putting Gwen Stacy in future instalments, he would have the Clone Saga or the Carnage Transformation storyline.
The blogger further adds that if they want the Ultimate version of Carnage in the Venom Spin off movie, they would suggest finding a character with the similar traits as Ultimate Gwen Stacy or have the original Carnage Cletus Cassidy in the movie.
