“Many thanks to Kaeden McGahey, Lindsey Cohick and Nick Lowe for bringing me into the spider family! I can’t wait for people to meet Web-Weaver for the first time and I hope it won’t be the last,” Steve Foxe tweeted.
According to the screenwriter, who is part of the LGBTQ+ community, Web Weaver is a fashion designer not so good-natured in Van Dyne who gains spider powers and comes off as a different kind of hero.
