Second Confirmed MCU ‘Spider-Man’ Trilogy Sparks Gwen Stacy Casting Ideas
Today on Spider-Monday (tickets are on sale!),that Spider-Man: No Way Home will not be the last Spider-Man film in the MCU, nor the last one with Tom Holland, despite past indications that he may be ready to pass the torch.
They have effectively confirmed a new trilogy that will leave the Homecoming storylines behind and move on to new territory. And fans are already referring to this as the “college trilogy” where Peter Parker and company are in college instead of high school, and that demands some new cast members.
While it seems likely that Miles Morales would be introduced within a Spider-Man movie, I have no doubt he’d quickly get his own series of films outside of Holland’s. But in terms of a co-star that could run the entire duration of the trilogy? Only one character comes to mind:
Gwen Stacy seems impossible to avoid in this era, as such, fans are already starting to fantasy cast who they want to see in the role, as it seems unlikely that, multiverse developments aside, it’s going to continue to be an undead Emma Stone from the Andrew Garfield films.
The other notion here is that these new Spider-Man films would actually end up turning her into Spider-Gwen by the end, making her a hero in her own right.
I agree with at least one name being passed around by fans: Anya Taylor-Joy, whom I have to believe Marvel will pursue for the role, given her surge in prominence after The Queen’s Gambit, and her iconic look that seems perfectly suited for the character. Whether that would work out or not, or if she’s truly their first choice, remains to be seen, but we’ll see.
Another option is the actress I always confuse with Anya Taylor-Joy, Elle Fanning, current star of the fantastic The Great on Hulu, who seems like she could fit perfectly into the part.
I’ve seen an online contingent pulling for Girl Meet’s World’s Sabrina Carpenter, who certainly looks the traditional comic part, but I’m curious if she’d be considered.
I could see Cobra Kai’s Peyton List taking up the part, and she’s shown what she can do in an action-oriented role already.
Of course, as Zendaya’s casting as MJ proved, we actually do not need the real-life actress to exactly resemble the comic character, and this could be an opportunity to continue to add more diversity to the MCU.
Midori Francis is someone I’ve had my eye on since she appeared in Netflix’s Dash and Lily, and now has a role in HBO’s The Sex Lives of College girls.
China Anne McClain has been a standout on Black Lightning for years, and before that, House of Payne and The Descendants.
I also just realized who voiced Gwen Stacy in the beloved Into the Spider-Verse, Hailee Steinfeld, now Kate Bishop on Hawkeye. So she’s out!
Anyway, Gwen Stacy does seem likely to arrive in the next trilogy, but obviously we wouldn’t be expecting an official casting announcement any time soon. We’ll see if Marvel sticks with some of the more high profile obvious picks, or goes in a different direction completely for Gwen.

When Do New Episodes of ‘Hawkeye’ Air? Episode 3 Release Date & Time
Hawkeye shot onto Disney+ on Nov. 24, and the two-episode premiere has already ramped up excitement surrounding the new show. Even viewers who don’t count Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) among their favorite Avengers are enjoying his latest adventure — either because of its Christmas themes, focus on his time as Ronin, or introduction of fan-favorite character Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld). And Clint and Kate certainly have a lot on their plates as the holidays approach. When can fans expect to see them in action again? Read on to learn the release date for every episode of Hawkeye, along with what to expect from episode 3 of the Disney+ show.
‘Hawkeye’s premiere introduces Hailee Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop

As the show’s trailer suggests, the past comes back to haunt Clint Barton in Hawkeye — and the two episodes that dropped on its release date wasted no time setting up that premise. Although the series takes place two years after the Blip, the enemies Clint made as Ronin haven’t forgotten him. And they manage to track him down just before he spends Christmas with his kids.
Sadly, it’s not his fault they find him. The catalyst for the clash is Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop, who makes a stunning entrance in the initial episodes. Her dynamic with Renner’s character is likely to leave viewers looking for the next episode. So, when can they expect it?
When do new episodes of ‘Hawkeye’ air? The Disney+ show is sticking to its Wednesday release date

New episodes of Hawkeye will drop on Disney+ every Wednesday, with the show following the same release model as Loki and Marvel’s What If…? Although WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier embraced a Friday release date, Hawkeye indicates that Marvel doesn’t plan on going back to that — at least not any time soon.
And the studio’s Disney+ shows have yet to take any kind of hiatus in between episodes, so fans can likely count on the latest to dominate Wednesdays through the end of the year. According to— and assuming there aren’t any delays — here’s what Hawkeye‘s release schedule should look like moving forward:
- Episodes 1 and 2: Nov. 24, 2021
- Episode 3: Dec. 1, 2021
- Episode 4: Dec. 8, 2021
- Episode 5: Dec. 15, 2021
- Episode 6: Dec. 22, 2021
Sadly, Hawkeye might power through its run in the blink of an eye — but at least we don’t have long to wait until the next episode of the show.
‘Hawkeye’ Episode 3 release date, time, and what to expect
As noted above, the release date for Hawkeye Episode 3 will be on Dec. 1, just one week after the first two installments arrived. As for what time fans can log onto Disney+ and watch it, the streamer tends to drop new content in the earliest hours of the morning. Looking for Hawkeye at 12:01 a.m. PT, or 3:01 a.m. ET, would be a safe bet.
And viewers won’t want to miss Hawkeye‘s third installment, which promises to bring Alaqua Cox’s Echo into the mix. It could also answer some of the big questions raised in the premiere, especially since it will mark the halfway point for the series.
President Joe Biden to visit Minnesota on Tuesday as part of $1 trillion infrastructure package push
ST. PAUL — President Joe Biden on Tuesday, Nov. 30, is set to stump for the recently approved $1.2 trillion infrastructure package during a visit to a Twin Cities suburb.
The president is scheduled to discuss the legislation and its expected $6.8 billion impact on Minnesota during a stop at Dakota County Technical College in Rosemount on Tuesday afternoon. It’s Biden’s most recent stop to tout the plan and his first trip to Minnesota since winning the presidency.
In a news release Monday, the White House said Biden would speak about how the package will create jobs and reduce prices on goods since the vast slate of projects could facilitate a smoother flow of supply chains around the country. The release said Dakota County Technical College “has programs to train the next generation of workers to build, operate, and maintain infrastructure” included in the package.
MORE ON THE INFRASTRUCTURE PACKAGE:
The federal boost is set to fund more than $4 billion in improvements to Minnesota highways, $818 million for public transportation investments and $302 million to help repair and replace bridges, according to the White House. The plan will also fund broadband expansion, port and airport improvements, water quality projects and electric car charging stations in the state.
State transportation officials have said the funds could allow Minnesota to move forward with projects earlier than they’d planned. More than 661 bridges and 4,986 miles of highway in Minnesota are considered to be in poor condition by the White House.
Biden in 2020 won Minnesota with a 7-percentage point advantage over then-President Donald Trump. But the president’s approval rating has sunk as a result of Americans’ frustrations about ballooning costs of gas and food, as well as his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
U.S. Rep. Angie Craig, a Democrat who represents the state’s 2nd Congressional District, has announced that she’ll join the president for the event.
