Concept art from Across the Spider-Verse shows Spider-Woman’s original character design

Spread MCU News

Jessica Drew, a.k.a. Spider-Woman, was originally seen in concept art for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. Early versions of Spider-Woman were depicted in the artwork, which was uploaded on Instagram by artist Mauro Belfiore. She was portrayed in a variety of settings, but her bright red and yellow ensemble with hoop earrings and postures with her pregnant child were a constant throughout the pictures, demonstrating that Spider-Woman’s pregnancy was always going to be an important part of her character development.

A concept artist for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse was Belfiore. “My task at that time was to explore faces, hairstyles, and attitude of the character,” he recalled. The photos’ most noticeable attitude is one of confidence, as a pregnant Spider-Woman talks about her unborn kid while riding a motorbike and sighs while being held at gunpoint. The Black Spider-Woman with locs, plaits, and an afro, as well as the Asian Spider-Woman, both of whom depart from the Caucasian Spider-Woman shown in the comics, are examples of Belfiore’s aesthetic objectives to demonstrate that “anybody can wear the mask,” as Gwen Stacy actor Hailee Steinfeld put it.

In a recent interview with CBR, Issa Rae, who portrays Spider-Woman, and Daniel Kaluuya, who plays Hobie/Spider-Punk, emphasised the significance of the inclusive and international perspective used in Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse. It was startling at first to think, ‘So she’s going to be out here fighting while pregnant?!’,” Rae said. The more I thought about that, the more fun it was to represent. They are superpeople. I bought in after recognising that these are superheroes from the character’s appearance. The Chai jokes in the movie were precisely the kind of little nuances they wanted to include, said Kaluuya. They seemed to have thoroughly conquered every location they visited. They were quite concerned with keeping it authentic to that region but also making it universal.

With nearly $390 million in box office receipts, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse has been positively appreciated by moviegoers. The plot of Across the Spider-Verse, written by Dave Callaham and the writing team of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, puts Miles against his erstwhile comrades as the Spider-People differ on how to deal with the most recent threat. Rae and Kaluuya are among the cast members of Across the Spider-Verse, which also includes Steinfeld, Brian Tyree Henry (Jeff Morales), Oscar Isaac (Miguel O’Hara), Shameik Moore (Miles Morales), and Karan Soni (Spider-Man: India). The Spider Within, a companion short film, just had its debut at the Annecy Film Festival in 2023.
