Spider-Man: Homecoming was a huge success for Sony, and it avoided all the tropes that you would expect from a Spider-Man movies like familiar love interests. With the sequel in the works, however, Omega Underground has given us an approximate start date for production as well as an audition tape for the role of Gwen Stacy.
Check it out:
Here's the transcript of the lines that she's performing:
Gwen – "Peter, I'm so sorry about your Uncle."
Peter – "Well thank-you"
Gwen – "I didn't know this was your family. I was just wondering why you haven't been to school."
Peter – "Really?
Gwen – "Well, like you. Hate you. Nobody can forget you."
Captain Stacy – "Off to do your homework?"
Gwen – "Umm just about dad. What are you doing tonight?"
Captain Stacy – "Sitting down and checking over some police reports."
Gwen – "Haha need any help?"
Captain Stacy – "From my best cop sure; but"
Gwen – "But what?"
Captain Stacy – "Well no father wants to rush his little girl out the door. Especially, when shes going into a teenager. But I would figure you would want to spend time with kids your own age."
Gwen – "Pass."
Captain Stacy – "Ha whats wrong? I don't know if you get any requests."
Gwen – "No plenty of requests. Just not from the right sources."
Captain Stacy – "Meaning?"
Gwen – "Well, most of the guys that come at me are jerks or want to be playboys. But then theres…this one guy. But even if he got the nerve to ask me out. I think he would get us both killed. He is such a klutz!"
Captain Stacy – "But you like him?!"
Gwen – "I don't know. There's something different about him."
With characters like MJ and Ned Leeds in Homecoming, it's no mystery that character origins are getting shook up for Sony's new Spider-Man. I don't know if the actress is just foreign, but it's possible that we could be looking at a Gwen Stacy coming from a different nationality.
Besides all that, the sequel to Homecoming is set to have a production start date on June 2018. Jon Watts is also said to be coming back to direct the film, and it's expected for a release in the middle of 2019.
With Spider-Man being a significant part of Avengers: Infinity War, I'm curious just how this affects his status in school. Would Peter Parker even want to go back to high-school after all the world-saving that he's done?
The Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel is set for a release on July 5, 2019.
