Here is an excerpt from the latest VSGuide article:
Finally! I've been waiting for a Marvel show to hit theVPN! Can you tell me what other characters we'll see in the Outcasts first season? Pleeeeaasssee! Well, seeing as you asked so nicely ... Producers have confirmed that Bryce Dallas Howard has landed the role of "Gwen Stacy" for an upcoming episode of the Outcasts. "Gwen will be introduced ... somewhere along the way in our first season," series creator Aimee Nicole told VSGuide, reluctant to tell us exactly when the character will be making her debut on the show. "I can say that she's the school news reporter and one of Melanie's classmates."
What can we look forward to in the first half of the Outcasts? Producers tell VSGuide that an "iconic villain" will be introduced during the mid-season finale, "Legacy." Any guesses?

Watch out, Mary-Jane…
…Gwen Stacy has arrived![/center]
Less than a week away from the series premiere, the producers have announced a new famous character from the Marvel Universe that will be making her debut alongside Jessica Biel this Tuesday. It can been confirmed that Bryce Dallas Howard has stepped back into the Marvel Universe to take on the role of Gwendolyn “Gwen” Stacy once again and will appear in “Seeing Red”. We managed to sit down with both series creator Aimee Nicole as well as Bryce Dallas Howard to discuss Gwen’s role in the show.
“Originally, Gwen wasn’t going to appear until after the mid-season finale,” the series creator tells us, “but after some thought and a few ideas that were thrown out to us, we decided it would be better to bring her in earlier and build her up slowly instead of letting it be a quick progression. Plus, we have a few things up our sleeve that we have an option of doing now that she’s in from the start.”
When asked if this would bring Howard as a series regular, Aimee told us, “I’m not sure on that yet, to be honest. She has more than two or three appearances but I don’t know if there will be enough to consider her as a series regular. We’re thinking about it though, I can say that much. Her role will turn out to be much more than just “minor”.”
Next, we sat down with Bryce Dallas Howard to discuss a few extra things regarding the appearance of Gwen Stacy and what she will bring to “The Outcasts”.
So Gwen Stacy has officially joined the show. What do you have to tell us about her role this season?
“She plays a semi-important part of Melanie’s social life at school,” Howard tells us, “they’re not best friends like her and a certain other person we know, but they’re friends. But she also becomes an aid to Spider-Girl as well.”
When we asked her if she could elaborate a little, she told us, “Gwen is an advocate for peace, and she actively opposes anti-mutant groups like Humanity First. So she uses her knowledge to help Spider-Girl pinpoint when mutants or pro-mutant activists have been targeted by these groups.”
Missy and the producers told us Melanie has no romantic interests in her near future. We heard you have something different to say. Can you tell us a little about that?
“Gwen openly flirts with Melanie,” Howard explains with a laugh, “and Melanie does it right back. But for Gwen it’s a little more serious than Melanie might take it, because Gwen is actually pretty in to her. Whether Melanie feels the same way or not is another story.”
We will be seeing any of the iconic relationship between Gwen Stacy and, now, Melanie Haelstrom?
“You’ll have to wait and see,” she tells us, “Gwen isn’t the only one that has an interest in Melanie this season.”
Catch the series premiere ofTHE OUTCASTS this Tuesday, Mary 24th, at 8/7c! How do you feel about Gwen Stacy, or the things mentioned in the above article? Sound off below!

Episode Update - 1x01 Along Came A Spider - Scarlett Johansson guest stars as the telepathic mutant, Euphoria Solstice. - The rise of the Green Goblin - The Xavier Institute is created, but not without the combined efforts from three unlikely sources.

Haha, It's probably gonna take me a good while to even think about Emma Roberts (SPOILEEEEERSSSSS!) portraying a sane person after Scream 4 xD. But I like it, she could pull off a Kitty Pryde (once I, again, shake the image of Pscyho-Jill)

As previously stated, Emmy Rossum was recently taken off the cast list by producers. She had to back out of her contract last minute due to personal reasons. Luckily, the producers had another prospective cast member to take her place. We managed to catch up with Emma Roberts despite her busy schedule to talk about her new role as Katherine "Kitty" Pryde, also known as Shadowcat.
How do you feel about joining "The Outcasts"?
"I think its a great opportunity," Roberts stated, "The X-Men are so iconic and I am thrilled to be a part of something like this and I'm honored to have been chosen as Kitty Pryde. "
What has been the hardest part of jumping into the role of Kitty Pryde so quickly and at the last minute?
"The time," she tells us with a laugh, "getting introduced to a character and then having to jump right into it is a little difficult, but I have enjoyed it and I think viewers are really going to be able to identify with her."
What do you think of the role you are taking?
"I love Kitty! She's so smart and dorky but at the same time she is dealing with a huge struggle of finding out she is a mutant and dealing with the hate that is suddenly directed at her," Roberts says, "Every teenager at some point has to find themselves and I think she is an extremely interesting character in that regard."
Don't miss The Outcasts series premiere tonight at 8/7c!
