Jerome Chen, the visual effects supervisor for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, talks about how Andrew Garfield was able to get into the correct mindset to film the moment in which Gwen Stacy dies.
Jerome Chen, the visual effects supervisor for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, recently discussed the extraordinary lengths to which Andrew Garfield went in order to prepare for filming the scene in which Gwen Stacy dies.
Chen remembers how Garfield confronted shooting a movie Gwen’s the last scenes in Sean O’Connell’s new book, With Great Power: How Spider-Man Conquered Hollywood during the Golden Age of Comic Book Blockbusters. O’Connell’s book is titled How Spider-Man Conquered Hollywood during the Golden Age of Comic Book Blockbusters.” I remember when they were filming that scene, Andrew and Emma Stone deliberately didn’t see each other for a week,” added Chen. “I was for the part where they were filming.” “Andrew rebuked her with the words, “I don’t want to see you! When you enter that scenario, you have to act as if you don’t exist to me and pretend like you’re dead. It was extremely peaceful there. There was practically never any noise during the sets. Director Marc Webb has a preference for working in a highly focused manner. Therefore, there was very little noise, and the stage was completely closed.
And all I can think of is Andrew coming in here and just sobbing uncontrollably. That went on for a number of hours. That was arduous yet extremely effective.”
Later on, Gwen’s passing was brought up in the film Spider-Man: No Way Home, which pits Tom Holland’s version of the web-slinger from the Marvel Cinematic Universe against non-MCU versions of the character played by Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire, accordingly.
A scenario in which Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man saves Zendaya’s character, MJ, from the same fate as Gwen is featured in the upcoming blockbuster film set to be released in 2021. Since then, Garfield has stated unequivocally that it was eventually this sequence that persuaded him to become a part of No Way Home, describing it as “a profound moment.”

Can We Expect The Amazing Spider-Man 3?
Fans were pleased to see Andrew Garfield reprise his roles as both Peter Parker and his wall-crawling alter ego, Spider-Man, and as a result, many of them have been lobbying Sony to bring back the Amazing Spider-Man film franchise.
The English-American performer recently indicated that he would be open to reprising his role as Spider-Man if the movie in question “made sense.” However, Garfield continues to be resolute that he does not have any plans to don the superhero costume in the near future. However, he also says that fans around the world aren’t going to believe this because he rejected his participation in No Way Home before the film’s release, so they are unlikely to believe him now.
Tom Holland, the current Spider-Man, has stated that he is fine with Garfield continuing to play a role in the franchise alongside him. While praising Garfield for his work in No Way Home, Holland expressed his desire to see The Amazing Spider-Man 3 become a reality, saying that he’d “like” to see it materialize. He said, “I think what was so beautiful was how Andrew was able to sort of make apologies with the character and the company, you know, to kind of win the general audience back.” “I think what was so wonderful was how Andrew was able to kind of make peace with the character and the studio,” he continued. “The reactions of the audience members in the theater were just incredible at the scene in which he saved Zendaya.
If Sony were to go ahead with The Amazing Spider-Man 3, they wouldn’t only have just my entire backing but also Andrew’s, which should come as no surprise.”
