We used AI to come up with our own version of Ana de Armas as Spider-Woman.
Yesterday we told you about the rumor that Ana de Armas is the current front-runner to play the lead role in Sony’s upcoming Spider-Woman movie. Now thanks to our Giant Freakin Robot Instagram page, we have a picture of what the Cuban actress could look like if she donned the webbed tights. The picture is only an AI rendering, but the results are stunning, to say the least.
While Jessica Drew‘s comic-accurate Spider-Woman costume is red and gold with no web pattern, the picture of Ana de Armas opts for a look closer to Spider-Man’s suit with lines of black webbing running up and down the red fabric. Given that the Across the Spider-Verse version of Jessica Drew already wore a different costume than her comic counterpart, there’s no reason De Armas couldn’t also sport an original look.
Sony’s last attempt at expanding their live-action Spider-Man universe, the abysmal Morbius, left a bad taste in fans’ mouths (those that actually went to see it, that is). Casting a popular star like Ana de Armas in their next spider-movie could go a long way toward repairing the studio’s reputation when it comes to flesh-and-blood superhero movies. Sony might want to act sooner rather than later, however, if they’re serious about landing De Armas.
The Academy Award-nominated actress is already joining one blockbuster franchise with the upcoming Ballerina, set in the John Wick universe. Depending on how well Ana de Armas does with the spin-off, more franchises are likely to come calling. If Sony doesn’t want the Blonde actress as Spider-Woman, we’re sure Disney would be glad to scoop up the beautiful brunette and put her in Star Wars or the MCU.
Sony has already announced one buxom actress for the role of Spider-Woman. The studio’s upcoming Madame Web movie will feature Sydney Sweeney as Julia Carpenter, one of several Marvel characters to use the Spider-Woman moniker. If they also end up casting Ana de Armas as the Jessica Drew version of Spider-Woman, Sony could potentially be setting themselves up for a Spider-Women team-up movie starring two of the hottest stars in Hollywood.
Possibly even three. Sony has already talked about making a solo Spider-Gwen movie based on the character in Across the Spider-Verse. Meanwhile, Hailee Steinfeld, the actress who voices Gwen in the film, has mentioned she would be up for portraying the character in live-action.
That means that fans could theoretically get a movie where Sydney Sweeney, Ana de Armas, and Hailee Steinfeld dress up in skintight spandex and fight crime side by side. We can almost guarantee such a film would gross enough money to make Sony forget Morbius even happened.
Of course, for that to happen, Sony would have to hire Ana de Armas to play Jessica Drew in the Spider-Woman movie officially. With any luck, they will, and fans will be treated to a scenario, not unlike the one pictured above. Until that happens, fans will just have to be content with AI glimpses of what could be.
