Ex-Gwen Stacy Bryce Dallas Howard Gives Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Her Seal of Approval

Before she was running from dinosaurs or directing episodes of The Mandalorian, Bryce Dallas Howard was best known for playing Gwen Stacy in 2007’s Spider-Man 3. With the Gwen character being a main player in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, Howard went online to gush about how much she loved the movie.

Here’s her post:

For context, here’s a scene from when Howard was playing Stacy from 16 years ago:

Before Spider-Gwen was created back in 2014, Gwen Stacy was notoriously Peter Parker’s dead girlfriend who was killed by Green Goblin in the comics. Gwen had remained a famously dead character for decades, and it wasn’t until the Edge of the Spider-Verse comic where Jason Latour and Robbi Rodriguez switched Peter Parker out with her and created one of the most celebrated female superheroes today.

As far as live-action appearances go, Gwen has just been a love interest for Spider-Man, but maybe the popularity of the Spider-Verse movies could bring a live-action Spider-Gwen to the spotlight. I’d say let Hailee Steinfeld play her again, but seeing that she’s already Kate Bishop in the MCU, I wouldn’t mind if they cast someone else younger.

Then again, the animated Gwen is already a pretty great take on the character, and after seeing Spider-Verse 2, it’s going to be a real challenge to pull of Gwen and Miles in live-action the way they’re portrayed in the film.

For now, catch Gwen in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse now showing in theaters.
