Emma Stone has said that she hopes her character Gwen Stacy will die in the new Amazing Spider-Man movie franchise.

Speaking to Interview, Stone said that she wants her character's arc to follow that of the original comic.

She said: "[Fans ask] about whether or not the films are going to stay true to her story. Which I'm hoping they are.

"Essentially the argument is that Spider-Man kills her by accident. So the person she loves is the person who kills her, which is the most horrifying thing. Apparently people unsubscribed to the comic book when that happened because they were just so flipped-out over it.

"But, of course, I want to stay true to that."
