When asked which Marvel Comics hero she’d like to play if given the chance, Star Wars’ Daisy Ridley said she’d love to portray Spider-Woman.
“I would love to play Spider-Woman,” Ridley told author Sariah Wilson when asked about casting rumors suggesting she might play Jessica Drew in the Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters. Ridley also told Wilson that she loved the animated feature Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and has been a big fan of Marvel’s latest series WandaVision.
