What Emma Stone wants, Emma Stone gets? Back in August, the actress revealed that she was hoping her character of Gwen Stacey in "The Amazing Spider-Man" would stay true to the comics and meet an unfortunate end.  “Essentially the argument is that Spider-Man kills her by accident,” Stone explained about the appeal of the storyline, “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.” Now, it looks like Sony will.

Well, it's official: "The Amazing Spider-Man" is going to be a huge hit. With over $50 million already in the bank from overseas, "The Amazing Spider-Man" kicked off in North America on Tuesday with a record-breaking $35 million and is now on track to earn upwards of $140 million by Sunday night. Not bad for a movie that cost a reported $220 million. Even more, viewers 18 and under are giving the flick an A- CinemaScore, meaning that the studio's efforts to re-brand the franchise for a younger audience who may not be familiar with Sam Raimi's trilogy has been a success. And with a sequel already dated for May 2, 2014, it seems the studio is already looking beyond that.
