BossLogic's latest comic book movie fan art imagines Hailee Steinfeld as a live-action version of her Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse character, Spider-Gwen. Less than a month after it opened in theaters, Sony's animated Spider-Man movie has become one of the most widely (and loudly) celebrated superhero films in recent memory. The Miles Morales adventure won Best Animated Feature at the 2019 Golden Globes this past Sunday and is easily the front-runner to take home this year's Best Animated Feature Oscar next. Meanwhile, Sony has turned it attention to building out the brand with everything from sequels to spinoff films and even multiple Spider-Verse TV shows.
As much as Spider-Verse's success can (and should) be credited to its crew and creatives, the film's cast also deserve their fair share of recognition for their terrific voice performances. No doubt, some fans would even love to see Spider-Verse cast members like Steinfeld, Shameik Moore, Jake Johnson, and Nicolas Cage as their characters in live-action. Well, thanks to BossLogic, fans need no longer imagine how Steinfeld in particular would look as her Spider-Verse counterpart.
For those unfamiliar: BossLogic has become one the more famous (if not the most famous) comic book movie fan artists online in recent years, and often like to imagine what certain actors would look like as various superheroes in his work. He previously created artwork that transformed Spider-Verse's Miles Morales into Venom, and his latest art does something similar for Steinfeld and the animated Spider-Gwen. Check it out, below.
One of the many things to admire about Spider-Verse is the way it gives its characters realistic features and, in some cases, seems to model them after the actors bringing them to life. That's especially true with Spider-Gwen, who (arguably) looks like Steinfeld in the face - minus the blonde hair, of course - and fits the Oscar nominee as a live-action role all the better for it. While there are no plans to bring Gwen Stacy's webslinger to life in a live-action movie or TV show right now, Sony does intend to bring the character back in not only the Spider-Verse sequel, but also an all-female superhero spinoff where Spider-Gwen teams up with Silk and Spider-Woman, among others. Steinfeld, of course, will continue to voice Gwen Stacy in all of these films, should they come to pass in the future.
Still, it will be interesting to see if Spider-Gwen has a future in live-action. Emma Stone played a non-superpowered version of Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man movies, but never got a chance to bring her web-slinging alter ego to life. Now that Spider-Man is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, however, it's entirely possible a new film version of Gwen Stacy (one who does become Spider-Gwen) will be introduced down the line. 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming already all-but confirmed that Miles exists in the MCU - and, as comic book readers know too well, where there's Miles, there's usually Spider-Gwen too. In the meantime, Steinfeld will - hopefully - continue to play Spider-Verse's Spider-Gwen for several films to come.
