SPIDER WOMAN (Character Profile and Cast Picks)

Jessica Drew aka Spider Woman


Spider Woman (Top Left), Emilia Clarke (Top Right), Mary Winstead (Bottom Left) and Paula Patton (Bottom Right)
Spider-Woman has been one of Marvel's leading ladies, for the best part of the last 35 years. She's an ex-member of Hydra, a member of S.H.I.E.L.D., S.W.O.R.D., the New Avengers, Lady Liberators and has also been a Hero for Hire.

Jessica Drew as Spider Woman
Jessica Drew, aka Spider Woman, origin story might be a push to far for a film adaption and even though she has two origin stories, neither one really feels appropriate for the big screen:

The first origin story sees Jessica as a young girl, who is lethally poisoned by radiation. In an attempt to save her life, her father injected her with an experimental serum based on irradiated spiders' blood. Because the serum did not have any apparent effect on her, She’s placed in a genetic accelerator, where she aged at a decelerated rate, after being in it for decades she comes out as a 17 year old, with powers.

The second origin story Jessica's powers derive from her mother's womb being hit by a laser beam containing the DNA traits of several different species of spiders while she was carrying Jessica.

Clearly, both these origin stories will be something that Marvel will try and avoid. However, miss Drew is a real interesting/cool character, and she does have a big fan base that can't wait to see this British hero, make it on to the big screen.

We don't think Marvel will want to bring in Spider Woman just yet, because her name is so closely related to Peter Parker's Spider-Man! However, Jessica Drew did give up her superhero status to be a full time agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.  for a while in the comics.

So she could easily be introduced in Cap 2 or Avengers 2 as just another member of S.H.I.E.L.D., and a ex member of Hydra. She could have gained her powers from Hydra experimenting on her, before she defects. Being an ex-member of Hydra her dynamic with Captain America could be really interesting to see unfold in a film.

Here are our Picks:

Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Spider Woman
Mary Elizabeth Winstead is a stunning versatile actress, who always puts in good solid performances in every film she has been in. Mary has acted in many films, in various types of roles, yet she hasn't found the one big role that will cement her in the minds of the audiences around the world!

We were thinking that Spider-Woman might just be the role, which shoots her into super stardom. It's clear that this beautiful starlet does want to get into a big budget comic film, as she has auditioned for both Wonder Woman and Maria Hill, unfortunately never got the part.

Winstead might have lost out on the role of Agent Hill, to Cobie Smulders but she did impress in auditions. We thinking that maybe Jessica Drew would just be that perfect role Winstead was waiting for as she always manages to light up a screen every time she's on it. Not to mention the fact that she is a total bad ass, and one tough lady.

Emilia Clarke as Spider Woman 
Emilia Clarke has introduced herself to the world with her breakthrough role in Game of Thrones. She has certainly been one of the biggest breakout stars in the show, mesmerizing the audience with incredible performances throughout the season.

We haven’t seen her in anything else, but her performances in Game of Thrones is enough to get anybody excited to see what the future holds for this dragon queen.

Jessica Drew will be the perfect type of role for this you beautiful starlet to take on, and get audiences to see her in a whole new way. Emilia will definitely bring the charm, strength and like ability to miss Drew, that has gained her many fans through the years.

Jessica can be quite the fiery sort of personality and Emilia Clarke can definitely bring this trait alive if chosen for Drew. Emilia Clarke will definitely give us a Jessica Drew that we come to love in the comics while making the character extremely likeable.

Paula Patton as Spider Woman
Paula Patton is our wild card pick and a real solid choice for Spider-Woman. Essentially if you want an idea of her portraying Jessica Drew, all you have to do is watch Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, as she really shows she can bring just the right amount of emotion to each scene where necessary as well as show she can kick serious ass.

Paula Patton irresistibly hot, and yet she is proving to be quite the talented actress, as she continues to provide good solid performances in every film that she is in. Paula might be a long shot for the role of Jessica Drew but she will certainly give a good performance, and have the audience instantly fall in love with her.
