As Gwen Stacy, played by Bryce Dallas Howard, wasn’t killed off in Spider-Man 3 that leaves the door open for the character to return in Spider-Man 4. But will she? Howard spoke to ComingSoon recently and spoke about the possibility, although she has yet to be contacted regarding the role.
Q: Will your character Gwen have a big role in “Spider-Man 4?”
Bryce Dallas Howard: Oh goodness! I don’t know. I mean, it was really made clear to me when we all did “Spider-Man 3” that it was entirely possible that a character could come back or a character could not and this could be just a specific plotline to that film because there’s so many stories in the comic book series and you want to pack as much in as possible so it’s truly up to Sam, up to, you know, the writers and the people who have done such an amazing job protecting that franchise and choosing the best storylines for audiences and I’m a fan first. I had an incredible time working with them but more than anything what I want is for that franchise to just continue to kick butt and to really appease the really really really loyal fans, so, including myself.
Q: Have you been approached about the next film?
Howard: No, no. No, I haven’t.
Filming is scheduled to begin in March, so if she hasn’t been contacted yet then she probably doesn’t have a significant role in the film, if at all.
In the meantime Bryce Dallas Howard will be appearing The Twilight Saga: Eclipse as Victoria next summer and if the Terminator rights get sorted out there is a chance we could be seeing her as Kate Connor in the future.
