Spider-Gwen Will Make Her Animated Debut in ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN

Spider-Gwen Will Make Her Animated Debut in ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN

Before 2014, Gwen Stacy was best known as Spider-Man‘s dead girlfriend. But ever since the debut of an alternate Earth’s Spider-Gwen, she’s become a wildly popular fan-favorite and the star of her own comic book series. Now, Spider-Gwen is making a larger leap to animation!

IGN is reporting that the Ultimate Spider-Man vs. The Sinister 6 animated series will introduce Spider-Gwen in an upcoming episode. Spider-Gwen will be voiced by Dove Cameron (Descendants), and she’ll be appearing alongside several alternate Spider-Men (including Donald Glover’s Miles Morales) in the fourth and final part of the “Return to the Spider-Verse” storyline. That particular episode is slated to air on September 17, but the story will begin on Saturday, August 28.

In her world, the alternate Gwen Stacy calls herself Spider-Woman, and she was the one who was bitten by a radioactive spider instead of Peter Parker. That version of Peter went on to become the Lizard before dying, which also led Spider-Gwen to be viewed as an outlaw.

It’s not surprising that Spider-Gwen is getting animated a mere two years after her debut. In fact, we’d say that there’s a very good chance that the next time that Gwen Stacy shows up in a live-action film, she’ll be Spider-Gwen. Whether intentionally or not, director Jon Watts appears to have left Gwen Stacy out of Spider-Man: Homecoming. Potentially, that could allow future films to reintroduce Gwen as the other person bitten by the radioactive spider. Cindy Moon/Silk could also fill that role, or perhaps the MCU could be big enough for more than one spider-heroine.
