The rising star of house of the dragon, Milly Alcockhas been reimagined in fan art as one of the biggest new additions to the Marvel comics canon: Gwen Stacy as Spider-Woman.
Also known by other similar titles like Spider-Gwen and Ghost Spider, the character rose to fame in 2017 thanks to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, where she was portrayed by multiple Marvel roles actress Hailee Steinfeld. However, to appear in live action as the superhero’s alter ego, fan art sees Alcock become one of the most important characters in Spider-Man history.
The Australian actress impressed many with her performances in house of the dragonand this piece by Josh/clements.ink proves that it could be the best fit for a Marvel Cinematic Universe version.
The character of Gwen Stacy was given a lot more depth thanks to Jason Latour and Robbi Rodriguez completely reinventing the character for the Spider-Verse comic event. Since the 2014 race, she has become a mainstay and a fan favorite.
Prior to this, the character was very much a “refrigerated” character with his previous largest role in the comics being his death at the hands of the Green Goblin. Now, he’s one of the best characters in the Spider-Man mythology and feels very close to a live-action film debut.
The Sony Spider-Man Universe is still being built, but with the failure of Morbius (meme shock aside), you’d be hard-pressed to find many excited for 2024 lady web film with Dakota Johnson and Sydney Sweeney.
Animated Spider-Gwen will return in 2023 Via Spider-Versewith Steinfeld returning to the role.
