The latest updates and spoilers for the "Spider-Man: Homecoming" sequel reveal a theory involving a Marvel heroine making her live-action debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Screenrant theorized that Angelica Jones (a.k.a. the mutant superhero Firestar) could appear in the movie. The film's production is looking to add new female characters that are linked to Peter Parker, one being Gwen Stacy and the other, a femme fatale.

The story of the "Spider-Man: Homecoming" sequel will take place after the events of the fourth "Avengers" film, as Peter matures himself into a proper superhero in New York.

He will now face new challenges in his life, both personal and with being a hero.

Who is Firestar?

Firestar first appeared in the "Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends" animated TV series as part of Spidey's supporting characters, along with Iceman. Angelica Jones is a mutant with the ability to absorb and release microwave energy. This allows her to manipulate radiation and control fire. She made her comic debut in Uncanny X-Men #193, where her powers are activated after being bullied as a teenager. She was soon recruited by Emma Frost as part of the Hellions. She also joined other teams such as the X-Men, Avengers, and New Warriors.

With Disney acquiring several franchises from 20th Century Fox, Marvel fans are looking forward to seeing the X-Men as part of the MCU.

This presents the opportunity to put Firestar in the franchise since she has been a part of Peter's life.

Screenrant speculated that Liz Allen from the first "Homecoming" film could become Firstar since a version of her is a mutant in the Ultimate Marvel comics.

What do we know so far?

The sequel's production is looking for an actress to play Gwen Stacy in the MCU.

Two European actresses made two separate audition tapes for the character. They are also looking for a femme fatale character and fans have speculated that she could be Felicia Hardy (a.k.a. Black Cat) or Silver Sable.

Collider Video host John Schnepp claims that Tom Holland will appear in Sony's "Venom" live-action movie, but he clarified that his character will not suit up in his Spidey outfit.

The "Venom" spin-off will feature Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, a journalist-turned-anti-hero after making contact with an alien symbiote. He was a nemesis of the web-slinger but became a hero after moving to San Francisco.

The movie will be based on two story arcs: "Lethal Protector" and "Planet of the Symbiotes."
