Every Monday, Vulture debuts a new video in their Remix series, which puts a different spin on popular franchises. For instance, one of their recent Remixes was highlighted in Nerd Alert last month, which gave fans a glimpse at what an Idris Elba-lead version of Spectre would look like. Today's Vulture Remix shows us what a potential Spider-Gwen movie would look like, starring Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, with the video using footage from The Amazing Spider-Man, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and the original 2002 Spider-Man, along with Easy A and Birdman.
You may recall, back in June, we reported that Marvel Comics signed off on a new Spider-Gwen comic book series, which was believed to set up a potential movie of the same name. The Spider-Gwen movie was never confirmed, but even if it does move forward in the future, it won't feature Emma Stone, since Spider-Man is being rebooted once again, with Tom Holland portraying Peter Parker. This new version of the wall-crawler will first surface in Captain America: Civil War next year, before starring in a new Spider-Man movie, set for release on July 28, 2017.
Visual effects artist and filmmaker Alex Coulombe directed this Spider-Gwen trailer, with Julianne Cancalosi portraying Spider-Gwen, in scenes where she's seen in her own costume. Much like the rumored Spider-Gwen, it's actually Gwen Stacy who gets bit by the radioactive spider. She is seen going up against the iconic villain Vulture (shown in this trailer as Birdman), while trying to deal with her father, played in The Amazing Spider-Man by Denis Leary.
When Marvel announced their deal with Sony Pictures to bring Spidey into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it was believed that all of Sony's spinoff projects, such as The Sinister Six, were dead. However, Drew Goddard, who was set to write and direct The Sinister Six, revealed that the spinoff may still happen at Marvel, stating that his project wouldn't tie into Spider-Man's continuity. If this project does actually happen at Marvel, there could be a chance that Spider-Gwen could happen as well.
As it stands now, though, The Amazing Spider-Man series, starring Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, is done. Would you have liked to see Emma Stone put on her own Spider-Gwen costume and fight crime in the Big Apple? Or would you rather see this project being developed with whoever signs on to play the new Gwen Stacy? Let us know what you think, and stay tuned for more Spider-Gwen updates.
