Karen Gillan Wants to Play SPIDER-GIRL

Doctor Who star Karen Gillan may already have a role in the Marvel universe as the badass villain Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy, but she would also like to take on a more heroic role in that universe. 

In a recent interview with SFX, the actress is asked which superhero she would most like to play if given the opportunity, and it turns out she's a big Spider-Man fan. Here's how the short Q&A played out:

If you could play a superhero, which one would you choose?

"Yeah, who is there…? I want to play a version of Spider-Man that’s a lady."


"Spider-Woman – does she exist?"

There’s a Spider-Woman and a Spider-Girl.

"I want to play Spider-Girl!"

I know this is just a hypothetical thing, but as a huge fan of Gillan, I would love to see her take on the role of Spider-Girl. I think she'd be awesome because she's adorable as hell, she's got the personality to play the character, she's extremely talented, and she's got the perfect look. Do you think that Gillan would make a good Spider-Girl? If not, who would you like to see play the character if a movie ever happened?
