"Spider-Verse" is essentially a war story, so there’s no guarantee Gwen Stacy will survive. But if she does, would you be interested in telling more stories with her?
Renzi:Of course! I’d love to do more Gwen stories with Jason and Robbi!
Latour:Absolutely. I’m not involved in the grander strokes of “Spider-Verse,” so I don’t know what the big plans are, but I do know she’ll be making a couple of appearances in Dennis Hopeless’ new “Spider-Woman” book, and I’m thrilled by that. Dennis is going to do fun things with her. If she’s around after all the dust clears, and everyone seems to want it, I think there’s probably more that could be said. So long as it’s natural and in keeping with the tone we’re trying to establish.
Rodriguez:I think we all would, deep down. I think we all have a bit more to say with her, but I guess that’s really up to the readers to make this issue a hit, and the powers that be. I hope we gave the reading audience a Spider-Woman that’s more than just background filler, or just a character whose sole existence was to fill in a copyright hole.
I dunno about you guys but I could read 100 issues of this, easy.
My height can be a problem. A lot of directors and photographers are sometimes not happy because I’m pretty tall and especially if I work with short actors the difference can be pretty massive.
"Yes, I’ve had the odd complaint, but on the whole I’ve been a saint."
Pretty much always.
I’ll be honest, this is not a recent thing.
I hear people talking about this as if it’s a relatively new phenomenon, carried by ‘social justice warriors’ or whoever, but I don’t think that’s true.
It’s always pretty much been the case that hardcore followers of one company tend to slag off the other. I think for the most part, it’s just similar to sports fans who follow one team over another. They love one team, hate the other, even if the players end up switching teams all the time.
I think that’s fine, it’s kind of fun, I don’t get too upset about it.
It goes back and forth, there was a time when Marvel was more progressive, then DC was, then Marvel again. I haven’t sat down to work out which company is really doing better along those lines, really.
All I know is what I am seeing at cons, which is what I really love, TONS of young women dressed as Ms. Marvel, Captain Marvel, and America Chavez. While I can’t help being delighted to see so many Scandal Savages, Black Canaries, and Harleys. I love seeing all those great female characters really grabbing imaginations, I don’t frankly care which company does them, as long as they are both trying.
Both companies do great stuff and both companies stumble. I think DC is doing some really cool stuff with lgbtq and POC and female characters. I don’t keep up with the news at Marvel QUITE so much (just because I am busy) but it looks like they are doing a bunch of great stuff.
I don’t really take offense if someone likes one company over the other. I like to tease my friends at Marvel, and they kid me back, but in the end, we are all friends.
I love Kelly Sue and G. Willow Wilson, I love Scott Snyder and Marguerite Bennett. I will follow them whichever company they work for.
I hope that makes sense and I understood your question?
