Now, fans can’t help but envision Hailee Steinfeld stepping into the shoes of Gwen in a whole new light.

Steinfeld’s seamless transition into the role of Gwen Stacy in this fan art raises intriguing possibilities for her future in the Spider-Verse. With her undeniable acting prowess, there’s a growing anticipation that a live-action adaptation featuring Steinfeld as Spider-Woman may be on the horizon.

Could Hailee Steinfeld Play Gwen Stacy In Live-Action? 

“Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” introduced live-action elements and characters in a unique and engaging manner. The film showcased different live-action universes, including The Spot’s journey into the Venom universe and Donald Glover’s appearance as the Prowler, a nod to his previous role as Aaron Davis in “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” Additionally, iconic Spider-Men Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield made appearances through the clever use of archival footage, enriching the film’s tapestry by revisiting moments from their respective movies.

This cinematic approach has broadened the scope of the Spider-Verse, leaving fans to wonder if certain characters could transition from animation to live-action in the trilogy finale, appropriately titled “Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse.” The possibility of such a transition is heightened by the expressed desires of actors like Shameik Moore, who has vocalized his ambition to portray Miles Morales in live-action, as well as Hailee Steinfeld, who has openly expressed her interest in playing Gwen Stacy.

“Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse” appears to be the ideal platform for this transition, with hints of a sequence in the movie that might involve characters crossing into a live-action universe, thereby transforming them from animated figures to their real-life counterparts. However, it’s worth noting that Steinfeld is already bringing the character of Kate Bishop to life in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, potentially limiting her availability for other roles. Nevertheless, her remarkable performance in “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” has sparked enthusiasm among fans, leaving the door open for the possibility of seeing her as Gwen Stacy in a live-action adaptation, perhaps as soon as next year.
