Sony would like Emma Stone for a Spider-Gwen project
Amazing Spider-Man star Emma Stone is rumored to be on the hunt for a Spider-Gwen project at Sony Pictures.
WARNING: The following contains spoilers for Spider-Man: No Path Home, in theaters now.
If Sony is successful, Emma Stone could return to the Spider-Verse as Gwen Stacy. But this time, she will dress.
According to @MyTimetoShineH on Twitter, Sony Pictures is working on a Spider-Gwen project and wants Stone to come back for it. The rumor was first mentioned by @EdwinSRP, who shared other rumors related to Spidey since the release of No way home. The rumor was backed up by @MyTimetoShineH, who has a solid track record of recent Marvel Studios leaks.
Stone played Gwen Stacy in the 2012s The Amazing Spider-Man and its 2014 sequel. His performance and chemistry with frontman Andrew Garfield were among the only elements of the franchise that received praise. While Stone and Kirsten Dunst did not return for No way home alongside Garfield and Tobey Maguire, fans were eager to see her return to the role.
Created by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee, Gwen first appeared in the 1965s The Amazing Spider-Man # 31. Over the years, she has been one of Peter Parker’s many love interests, and her tragic death at the hands of the Green Goblin is one of the most iconic moments in comic book history. One version of the event served as a culmination of The Incredible Spider-Man 2, which in turn took into account No way home.
In 2014, however, an alternate reality version of Gwen was introduced in Spider-Verse Edge # 2. On Earth-65, Gwen was bitten by a radioactive spider. She became Spider-Woman, better known to fans as Spider-Gwen. She will eventually cross the main Marvel Universe in the comics and was voiced by Hailee Steinfeld in the famous 2018 film. Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse.
Spider-Gwen will return for Through the Spider-Verse, and Sony is reportedly working on a spin-off with her, Jessica Drew and Silk. The latter character is also receiving a TV show, although news of the Silk the series has not arrived since this summer. Still, it’s not hard to imagine Sony wanting to invest more in the Spider-Man characters they own, and Spider-Gwen has already been incredibly popular across various mediums.
Because No way home hit theaters and see Garfield return, the interest of seeing The Incredible Spider-Man 3 to do has only increased. The same pair who shared the Emma Stone rumor also recently claimed that Garfield is not done playing Spider-Man, while another recent rumor claims his Spider-Man will fight Eddie Brock in Venom 3.
For now, all of these rumors should be taken with a grain of salt. But whether or not Stone returns in the role, fans probably won’t have to wait long for Spider-Gwen to take action live.
