Karen Gillan Wants To Take A Crack At SPIDER-GIRL

The Scottish actress has already played a comic book villain in James Gunn's Guardians Of The Galaxy, but which superhero would she most like to play given the opportunity? SFX asked her that very question, and it turns out she's a bit of a Spidey-fan.

Karen Gillan will soon appear as Nebula in Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy, but if she found herself on the more heroic side of the CBM universe, who's costume would she most like to step into? While chatting to her about her roles in that movie and in the excellent horror flick Oculus, SFX put the question to her.


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?
Spider-Woman – does she exist?

There’s a Spider-Woman and a Spider-Girl.
I want to play Spider-Girl!

Okay, so Gillan obviously didn't know the character specifically..but she's a Spidey fan, that's enough! Spider-Girl is May “Mayday” Parker, but with her red locks and height, Gillan would actually better fit the role of Julia Carpenter, aka the second Spider-Woman. Either way, if Sony are thinking about a female Spidey spin-off, they need look no further.

I doubt it will ever happen if the powers at Sony have their way.
SuperCat - 6/20/2014, 5:55 AM
I'd see it as long as Webb doesn't direct.
McGee - 6/20/2014, 5:57 AM
I want Ror to feel about me, the way I feel about him.

We don't always get what we want sweetheart.
batz11 - 6/20/2014, 5:59 AM
I'd like to ride her 'spider-style' ;P
Doopie - 6/20/2014, 6:01 AM
and I'd like to take a crack at Karen Gillan
ElBicho - 6/20/2014, 6:02 AM
I would exhaust my web-shooter all over her. For all of about 6 minutes of fury.

6 minutes in heaven is better than 5 minutes in heaven I guess...
AlexanderLykins - 6/20/2014, 6:03 AM
Oh Karen.
batz11 - 6/20/2014, 6:03 AM
McGee, the "one-sideness" of your relationship with Ror is getting sad...you have to walk away from him, otherwise you'll have a life full of misery...I know it all too well. I was Ror's first (and thought) only lover, I was badly mistaken... Fear I'll never be the same, do not let this happen to you my friend!

i'd like a crack at her.








(it had to be said)
nikgrid - 6/20/2014, 6:06 AM
Yeah....she sounds like a regular comic expert.
thetrojan - 6/20/2014, 6:07 AM
Give the girl any role she choses.
I am looking forward to her Marvel debut in the Guardians movie.
TheAbaryMan369 - 6/20/2014, 6:07 AM
I'd like a Shattered Dimensions movie: Garfield, 2099, Miles, Spider-Girl, and possibly Maguire, but that ones a long-shot.
teinen - 6/20/2014, 6:09 AM
Spidergirl, just use uncle Max, Harriet Osbourn, they can do that right? Right?
655321 - 6/20/2014, 6:12 AM
So sorry Ms.Gillan but that's never gonna happen. BUT, if you still want to be in the spider family, we got a nice 'damsel in distress' role called Mary Jane you would be perfect for.
McGee - 6/20/2014, 6:17 AM

Ror....was any of it real?



SpiderFraud - 6/20/2014, 6:20 AM
Spider-Girl movie would be cool, only if Sony don't sabotage it. I wish Sony would do different Spidey universes, I'm already tired of what they are doing so far.
RorMachine - 6/20/2014, 6:20 AM
McGee, only the sex.
BluKnight88 - 6/20/2014, 6:20 AM
I would love to see a film, or something with Spider-Girl in it.
JoJo1982 - 6/20/2014, 6:22 AM
I'll give props for knowing the difference between those characters, sound like she really reads comics

But the with Arad still in(who said he wants the spiderman universe will not have spiderman 2099, scarlet spider, and miles)
It's likely not going to happen.


Sony really need to get some ppl that know how to work these new spiderman movies in the future
Tuuralihn - 6/20/2014, 6:23 AM
How do I say this properly.. hm.. YES, YES AND GOD YES.
sameoldthing - 6/20/2014, 6:31 AM
Actually there has been a Spider Woman with red hair.
She wore a black venom style outfit. I think she's still a Marvel character but with a different name.
SwanRonson - 6/20/2014, 6:32 AM
She is perfect.
Sumitsjc - 6/20/2014, 6:33 AM
@TheAbaryMan369
man that would be total fun to watch,especially to watch Maguire's Spiderman return as an movie actor Spidy in his universe.
JatevinM - 6/20/2014, 6:33 AM
Ladies and gentlemen she gets my vote to play a kick ass Mary Jane. Whoever plays Mary Jane next needs to have the same level of chemistry that Garfield and Emma Stone had and she has to be just as kick ass as Emma Stone. Actually I'll say she has to be more like able.
AlexanderLykins - 6/20/2014, 6:35 AM
She'd make a great Mary Jane Watson but I don't want her anywhere near that franchise.
MFDOOM - 6/20/2014, 6:38 AM
Well she seems to be well-versed in the comic-book world...
Gruff - 6/20/2014, 6:38 AM
Marvel studios... MAKE THIS HAPPEN!!!
AlexanderLykins - 6/20/2014, 6:40 AM
@McGee

Thing94 - 6/20/2014, 6:41 AM
She has Mary Jane Watson written all over here Webb, sign her up now!

Gamera623 - 6/20/2014, 6:41 AM
It may not be a superhero, but she should totally be Mary Jane Watson.
Shed be great.
Gandhi - 6/20/2014, 6:42 AM
She could be Gandhi-Girl

mgeoff88 - 6/20/2014, 6:46 AM
Wow, I could actually see Karen Gillan as Spider-Girl:



I would be on board with her in the role.
dethpillow - 6/20/2014, 6:48 AM
no, i don't think she'd make a good MJ at all.
same reason Woodley wouldn't. they're both too mouse centered.
they're little animals.

MJ is a big animal. maybe not big. but MJ is a medium sized animal.
and i don't mean about body type or anything really physical, but I mean in presence.

Karen Gillan would make a terrible MJ, i think.
dethpillow - 6/20/2014, 6:49 AM
she would make a great Spider-Girl.

which makes her also a great Kitty Pryde, basically.
that's Woodley and Gillan. Kitty Prydes. not Jean Greys or MJs.

and it's not a bad or good thing, it's just wrong fit.
yossarian - 6/20/2014, 6:52 AM
Can Pasto just make a different account and comment on Ror's articles incognito?
yossarian - 6/20/2014, 6:53 AM
Shit. Disregard. Don't read that Pasto.
