Spider-Gwen, also known as Spider-Woman, was a massive breakout character after her appearance in “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.” In the sequel, “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse,” she got even more screen time, with the story split more or less equally between Gwen and Miles Morales. Now, she’ll be the star of her own movie, with a “Spider-Woman” animated feature in the works, as reported by Variety.
Former CEO of Marvel Entertainment and “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” producer Avi Arad told the publication the movie will be in theaters sooner than some might expect. Regarding details of the project, he was far coyer, saying, “I cannot tell you yet, but it’s coming.”
The big question hovering over the “Spider-Woman” film is whether the titular role will continue to be filled by Hailee Steinfeld. For her part, Steinfeld has signaled a continued interest in the part, telling Variety, “This is like my dream job, sign me up over and over again.” Steinfeld also stars elsewhere in the Marvel-verse, playing Kate Bishop in the Disney+ MCU series “Hawkeye.”
