I've noticed in recent years when the "not forced" and "natural/organic" buzzwords are used when women take charge in a media project, especially a Marvel one, it never feels that way. Keeping my expectations way low for this one.
Of course it isn’t. This is all a cash-in to compete with DC SHG, and sell stuff to girls. The only way it’ll not seem “forced” or “organic” is if one of the characters become hugely popular, and they later take advantage of it by putting more focus on said character. Because at that point, it’ll be the general consensus of the fans (or specifically, the target audience) not the corporations.

It's not much, but Marvel released a clip with Dove Cameron discussing her role as Gwen Stacy.
So is Dove Cameron one-shot/publicity Gwen Stacy while Laura Bailey is cartoon Gwen Stacy :sweat:?

Although it is kind of amusing that this version of Gwen sounds more like comic Spider-Gwen then the Marvel's Spider-Man version does :p.

- Quake
- Squirrel Girl

So will this only be a film? Or is it also turning into a animated series.
I believe it's a series of shorts that lead into an animated film, though I wouldn't be surprised if there's an actual series that follows up from it :).

Although with the stars involved, that would probably involve some re-casting :sweat:.

Happy 20th birthday to PPG. Even in the good times and the bad times, you're still a show worth watching.
Holy smokes! Churned out 15 freaking pages of the latest Gilda and Meek today! I am in the freaking zone and so happy with how things are going in the final issue I will be posting on Toon Zone.
