Back in June, a rumor surfaced that Sony Pictures and Marvel may be developing a new movie based on the Spider-Gwen comics, after Marvel's Ike Perlmutter recently green-lit a new solo comic series for the character. We never heard anything concrete about this Spider-Gwen spinoff, but earlier this week, a new fan-made trailer started making the rounds, stoking interest in the character getting her own solo adventure. During a Q&A to promote Avengers: Age of Ultron, producers Kevin Feige and Jeremy Latcham revealed they hadn't yet seen the trailer, but they both thought the comic book version of Spider-Gwen was "cool."
The Spider-Gwen trailer that surfaced this week featured footage from The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 with Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, along with Julianne Cancalosi portraying Spider-Gwen in scenes where she's wearing the masked costume. Even if a Spider-Gwen movie does happen, it likely won't be with Emma Stone, since Sony is completely rebooting Spidey once again. Still, there is much more interest in Spider-Gwen after that trailer surfaced, so we'll have to wait and see if Marvel and Sony move forward with a movie adaptation.
Tom Holland is set to star as the new web-slinger, with Marisa Tomei in talks to play Aunt May. Spidey will first be seen in Captain America: Civil War, before starring in the new Spider-Man. It has been rumored that the stand alone movie will be the first of a new trilogy, with each movie taking place during a different year of high school, but that hasn't been confirmed. There have also been rumors of spinoffs, with The Sinister Six writer-director Drew Goddard revealing that his project, which was shelved at Sony after the reboot was announced, may now happen at Marvel. Kevin Feige wouldn't offer any specifics, but he did reveal that spinoffs may happen at some point.
"Well, there could be [spin-offs]. But the truth is, our job right now is that single Spider-Man movie based in the MCU. And that's where all our focus is."
Jon Watts (Cop Car) is directing from a script by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein (Vacation). The writers just signed on a few months ago, so it isn't known how far along they are on the script, or what other characters may be included. For instance, we don't even known if Peter Parker's love interest will be Gwen Stacy or Mary Jane Watson. Would you like to see a Spider-Gwen movie? Or are you more interested in seeing what they do with Spider-Man first?
