Gwen Stacy is a Spider-Man love interest from the comics who has been previously portrayed on-screen by Emma Stone and Bryce Dallas Howard in live-action and Hailee Steinfeld in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Gwen Stacy has a superpowered alter-ego called Spider-Gwen, also known as Ghost-Spider, who is from an alternate universe in which Gwen was bitten by a radioactive spider instead of Peter Parker. Although there have been two live-action iterations of Gwen, Spider-Gwen has only been featured in animation and comics. Given the importance of her character in the Spider-Man series of those mediums, fans have been eagerly awaiting the day that Spider-Gwen makes her live-action debut. Whenever that day comes, Alcock would be an excellent choice for the role due to her talent for portraying complex young women, and this fan art proves it.

There is, unfortunately, no timeline as to a potential live-action iteration of Spider-Gwen, but fans have speculated that Sony could use the character in a future project, with previous fan casts putting Sydney Sweeney, now set to star in Madame Web , in the role. With Emma D’Arcy taking over the role of Rhaenyra in the upcoming episodes of House of the Dragon, audience are sure to Miss Alcock’s version of the fascinating character. However, Rhaenyra is in good hands with the skilled D’Arcy, and perhaps, with fans clamoring for more of Alcock and Carey, the young actors could return in flashbacks later on in the series’ run.
