Spider-Man: Homecoming is doing something different by giving Peter Parker a love interest that isn't as well-known in the comics — Liz Allen. Rumors, however, have come out that Angourie Rice (The Nice Guys) has a role in the movie, and she's possibly playing Gwen Stacy.
According to ComicBookMovie, Tom Holland Source on Twitter had confirmed that Rice was playing the Spidey love interest, but it looks like the post had been deleted. Surely the inclusion of Gwen Stacy (or Mary Jane Watson) would have been a huge reveal, so maybe Marvel would have asked the post to be taken down. Then again, it could have just been a wrong report.
Rice was actually pretty fun to watch in The Nice Guys, and I think she's at a perfect age to pair up with Tom Holland's Peter Parker. It's very interesting how Sony has decided to keep Peter in high school for this new Spider-Man franchise, but I am curious as to whether we'll be seeing Gwen Stacy die a second time onscreen.
Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, young Peter Parker (Tom Holland) returns home to live with his Aunt May. Under the watchful eye of mentor Tony Stark, Parker starts to embrace his newfound identity as Spider-Man. He also tries to return to his normal daily routine -- distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just a friendly neighborhood superhero. Peter must soon put his powers to the test when the evil Vulture emerges to threaten everything that he holds dear.
