We LOVED The Nice Guys. Seriously. Loved it. And one of the things we loved most in it was the superb performance of fifteen-year-old Australian Angourie Rice.

Her character was, arguably, the only one in control during the whole movie and she was smart, funny and completely believable opposite Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe and now she’s part of the MCU.

Yes, she’s joined the cast of Spider-man: Homecoming.

Now, while Marvel/Disney are keeping the role she’s playing under Rice’s age and appearance, the rumour mill has her as, yes you guessed it, Gwen Stacey.

Now, we’re not saying she’s not – in fact in the image above, we can completely see her being Stacey – but we reckon it’s a case of ‘oh, she’s blonde, she must be Gwen’. Then again, she’s blonde, she might just be…

Anyway, she’s a damn fine young actress and no matter her role, we’re looking forward to her being in the movie. And yes, we sort of hope she’s Gwen, ok?

Let us know your thoughts…

Tom Holland is starring as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in a story that will bring Spidey back to his high school beginnings.

Also on board are Tony Revolori, who starred opposite Ralph Fiennes in The Grand Budapest Hotel, Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man and Michael Keaton rumoured to be playing Vulture, the film’s main villain.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
