The Spiderlady (a younger black widow)

Post by Mr Chronos »

In the batman 66 comics they made black widow younger. Who would you have cast? My vote goes for Deanna Lund because of the raven hair. There was a spider lady in the 1970s though right?

This just popped into my head, Dawn Wells (Mary Ann from Gilligan's Island). Traditionally, a black widow is a woman who gets a man to marry her and then kills him for his money or the insurance. So, ideally you want someone who seems sweet and innocent, but has a malicious side too. Mary Ann certainly conveys sweet and innocent!

The Gilligan's Island cast said some of their favorite episodes were the ones where they did a dream sequence and dressed up in costumes. I think Dawn could have pulled it off and had fun with it.

Either Deanna Lund or Joan or Jackie Collins.

Heard a rumour that Dozier thought of casting joan collins as the black widow but of course we would not have had the greatness that was the siren!! 8-) 8-)

She could have doubled like Anne Baxter did.
