For those unaware, Issa’s playing Jessica Drew — another variant of Spider-Woman … and even though a majority of the film’s plot is kept under wraps, one thing about her character is certain — she’s fighting crime with a bun in the oven!
Issa’s all about representation, but she has a word of warning for any pregnant ladies out there … don’t be fightin’! Regardless, she’s all for the bigger message — that women’s lives don’t need to be put on hold just because they’re having a baby.
And if ya don’t know, Issa’s character is just one of the many Spider-People in the new multiverse movie … joining the Spider-Society with the likes of Oscar Isaac, Andy Samberg, and Daniel Kaluuya, to name a few — and she sounds pretty damn hyped for it!
