Could Dove Cameron Play Spider-Gwen in a Sony or Sony/MCU Movie?

Dove Cameron is looking to break free of her Disney Kid label by swinging into the role of Gwen Stacy, aka Spider-Gwen.

Gwen Stacy is Peter Parker’s original girlfriend in Marvel Comics having been introduced 54 years ago in The Amazing Spider-Man #31, however, until recent years, she was most famous for her tragic death which was somewhat paid homage to in 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Fast-Forward nearly 60 years and the introduction of the Spider-Verse in Marvel Comics brings with it a Gwen Stacy from a parallel world who is her world’s web-slinging superhero known as Spider-Woman or colloquially as Spider-Gwen or Ghost-Spider due to her camouflage abilities.

Now it seems that Disney Channel’s Dove Cameron wants to finally bring Spider-Gwen to the live-action silver screen just one year after the character’s animated debut in the Oscar-winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse where she was voiced by Hailee Steinfeld.

However, with Steinfield all but officially confirmed to be portraying Kate Bishop aka Hawyeke in the upcoming Disney+ series Hawkeye alongside Jeremy Renner, the door has been opened for another actress to step through and allow the character to be fully realized in live-action.

Gwen Stacy has appeared in the first two Spider-Man movie series first as a bit part in Spider-Man 3 portrayed by Bryce Dallas Howard and then more prominently in Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man movies portrayed by Emma Stone.

Cameron is currently voicing Spider-Gwen in the animated Marvel Rising series which includes both movies and television series encumbering the same universe.

Also, this isn’t Cameron’s first foray into a comic-book property as she has also previously portrayed the recurring original character Ruby Hale on Season 5 of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Dove Cameron is most well-known for portraying the titular twins on the Disney Channel series Liv & Maddie from 2013-2017 and more recently for starring as Mal, the daughter of Maleficent in the Disney Channel Original Movie trilogy Descendants.

Spidey fans can meanwhile cry a shy of relief as it was recently confirmed that Tom Holland will be back as Spider-Man for a third Spider-Man movie.

Do you think Dove Cameron should be Spider-Gwen? If not, who would you cast?
