It looks like there might actually be some sort of open casting call for the role of Gwen Stacy in Europe.
Previously, Omega Underground revealed an audition tape for an unknown French actress reading for the part of Gwen Stacy, for which we assumed could be for Jon Watts‘ untitled sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming.
This gave us the impression there was a chance that the MCU version of Gwen could possibly be switched from all-American blonde to a foreign exchange student from Europe.
Well, this theory seems to be supported by a second audition tape we’ve uncovered that has equally unknown actress Iris Haller from the Germanic country of Luxembourg (they speak French, German, and Luxembourgish) in Europe auditioning too.
It’s also the same dialog from the first tape suggesting that this is role might be going out to specifically European newcomers.
Take with a grain of salt, as neither of these actresses seemingly have credits but an open casting-call might be what is actually going on here. However, considering how much we know Marvel enjoys their hush-casting process this seems a little odd.
Keep in mind, the dialog in open casting calls aren’t always directly from the film’s script and are mostly prepared scenes specifically for audition readings.
As we’ve previously reported the Spider-Man sequel is expected to start filming next June in Atlanta. Marvel and Sony have already slated the film’s release for July 5th, 2019.
