The writers of LOST were just making it up as they went along. Did you watch the complete series? So bad. Ugh. Thanks for reminding me about that.

Drastic, last minute, fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants changes like this don't indicate a well thought out gameplan to me.

That doesn't mean Gwen would die in ASM2.

Point is - so much is supposed to go into a screenplay that you have to lead up to as pivotal a moment of Gwen dying. The theme for example could be Peter wanting to save everyone or not going about things responsibly but gung-ho. Peter's arc would then be doing something he's not supposed to, Gwen dies, he learns that he should have done things differently the hard way. (I'm trying to make this as general as possible).

Basically, whatever story Gwen's going to die in - you're going to have that be the central character changing point in the story. It's not just going to come falling out of the sky.

And because of that you can't have a last minute change of "Oh, Gwen's going to live now." The easiest way to explain this is -- imagine TDK if Nolan went, "oh, we've decided to keep Rachel." It's a big thing. So whatever it was from day one, with this kind of things its unmovable because everything is heading in that one direction.

By your saying MJ just being there would have been it - MJ just being there would have just been it if Gwen's death was in ASM2 or ASM3.

I don't think the deleted scenes would have really contained the "Untold Story' we were all hoping for. As people have said before, TASM is more like "The Untold Story Begins."

I just think it's bizarre. Is this not what the script is for? Don't they plan these things down to the minutiae beforehand knowing what/who they'll need/won't need?

Just seems weird to completely cut a whole character and their sub story/plot because it "wasn't working" and "we want to focus on gwen and peter". Really? Did you not decide that before you started shooting?

Doesn't give me a ton of faith in the guy that he knows what he's doing (especially after TASM).

It could simply have to do with the recent announcement of a fourth film.

Also, as other members mentioned, she is tied to a new film series/franchise, so its possible that they cut her from the film to avoid a recast in the third film. We don't know if there was anything actually wrong with her character in TASM script.

There's:

1) Telling the untold story
2) Telling the sense of who someone was.

# 2 was there.

Beginning - Peter finding the briefcase and wondering who his parents are and why they left him to focus on their work.
Middle - Connors warmly telling Peter what kind of man his father is, then showing that Connors is more or less a similar absent father.
Ending - Connors, Ratha, and Peter in the sewers.

That was focus. We didn't find anything else out that we didn't in the theatrical cut, but it felt a lot more focused rather than disappearing after the first act.

Making script changes during production - even substantial changes - is not unheard of, as I already pointed out with my LotR:TTT example from earlier.

100%.

To answer your last statement with a question: You did see TASM, didn't you?


But yeah, the studios, writers, directors don't pay much attention to the scripts these days. Did you see Prometheus?

The post-credits sequence shows us that the filmmakers have not forgotten about the parents storyline. Like I said, it was introduced in this film as the underlying theme throughout the next few films, and it acted as a catalyst for Peter to go to Oscorp and get bit by the Spider. Maybe it did lose its focus, and that is one flaw in the script, but we know it is something that is going to be resolved in one of the future movies.

Mary Jane being cut from the film is a script change. IT HAPPENS.

This.

1 is the Untold Story begins
2 the untold story continues

3 the Untold story revealed/concluded

and 4 is a new beginning with focus shifting to a new arc (probably Symbiote)

There was probably a higher chance of MJ's role being cut from the film due to fan backlash than a poor script.

Actually you guys want to believe the spin. You're just not getting how strange this is for something like this to happen. And it's 101 that you don't just suddenly plop down a character's death out of nowhere. Every moment and every scene has to have a reason for being there. Everything has to be leading up to that one moment. Something as pivotal as Gwen's death you can't just delete and change at the last moment because that would ruin the arcs and themes that came before it. This is all really simple stuff actually.

Not unheard of, but everyone is going about like this is the most common thing in the world to happen. Also keep in mind FOR, TT, and RTK basically were filming at the exact same time - so that wasn't really that normal of filming. Plus, it is usually things that have to do with budgetary reasons.

Yeah, and that's why I don't have faith in what's going on here because it seems like the past repeating itself. You and DarkB so far seem like the only ones who are getting what this could more than easily point to.

Gwen was part of it, Oscorp - depends on where they go, his parents were the character's key struggle in the very beginning and what set him on the quest and which quickly disappeared. The question and conflict was -- who am I? The means was Connors/The Lizard.

It was IN the script, Webb deleted it at the last moment, making it feel too more than just to me awkwardly chopped apart.

You guys are seriously confusing info told with focus.

Someone could tell me about my biological father without telling me whatever happened to him.

And that's what they did -- originally.

At most they would have hinted at things like from the trailers:

"Do you know what you really are? You were part of a bigger plan" - Dr. Ratha
