Karen Gillan wants to play Spider-Girl.

The former 'Doctor Who' actress has expressed an interest in portraying a ''lady version'' of Spider-Man and after learning about both May 'Mayday' Parker aka Spider-Girl, and Julia Carpenter, the alter ego of Spider-Woman she made a quick decision over the role she'd prefer.

Asked which superhero she'd like to play, she told SFX: ''Yeah, who is there...? I want to play a version of Spider-Man that's a lady.

Spider-Woman - does she exist? I want to play Spider-Girl!''

The 26-year-old beauty recently admitted she found it ''scary'' when she first saw herself as Nebula in 'Guardians of the Galaxy' with her shaved head, black face-piece and purple face paint.

She said: ''I couldn't believe it. I was like 'woah'. I'd seen mock up pictures and they'd done make-up tests on other people, so I had an idea. But, when I saw it on myself it was really scary.''

The make-up and costume helped Gillan get into character since she didn't feel like she was herself.

She added: ''It did half the job for me. I mean, having shaved my head and working out so much, I just felt like a different person so that really helped with the performance.''

She will star alongside Chris Pratt who will play the lead role of Peter Quill - otherwise known as the Star-Lord.
