Sony Planning Female Superhero SPIDER-MAN Spin-Off For 2017 Release

Well, the (relatively) poor BO performance of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 doesn't seem to have deterred Sony from continuing their plans for spin-off movies. Deadline report that they're planning a female hero-led flick for 2017, with a scriptwriter already in place.

Sony may have pushed their Amazing Spider-Man threequel back to 2018, but it seems they are still determined to move ahead with their planned spin-off movies, and now Deadline report that we can add another to the list: A female superhero flick, eyed for a 2017 release. Though we don't know which character it'll focus on (Black Cat seems likely given that Felicia Hardy was introduced in TASM 2), Lisa Joy Nolan (Westworld) has been hired to write the script, with Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach producing. Before that though, we'll have that Sinister Six movie we've been hearing so much about (now set for November 11, 2016) and the site have heard that it'll be Doctor Octopus rounding up the team of villains. They only speculate as to who the other members will be however. Plus, they reckon the title of the Alex Kurtzman directed Venom movie bound for 2017 will actually be Venom Carnage, suggesting that we'll be seeing the clash of the symbiotes. Which female hero do you think Sony will go with? Deadline also name-check Silver Sable, Stunner, and Spider-Woman as "strong possibilities", but that could well just be speculation.

MrFridayNights - 8/4/2014, 10:25 AM
Flop!!!!!!!!!
CavalierTunes - 8/4/2014, 10:26 AM
It would have to be Spider-Girl. Spider-Woman (Jessica Drew) has no connection to Spider-Man. If assume Marvel still has the rights to her.

It could be that new character, Silk, though.
Batman52 - 8/4/2014, 10:26 AM
Ain't that a (beep). Sony gonna do a female superhero movie before Marvel Studios and WB? Well Played..
MrFridayNights - 8/4/2014, 10:26 AM
That movie will be just as good as Catwoman lol
Dev7 - 8/4/2014, 10:26 AM
Is it me or does it feel like we're being trolled here from news websites? I mean female ghostbusters now to female spider-man characters???
DrDoom - 8/4/2014, 10:27 AM
This will get cancelled too, along with Venom and TASM4.
EzioKenway1225 - 8/4/2014, 10:27 AM

TheDarkPassenger - 8/4/2014, 10:27 AM
[frick] OFF. GOD DAMN IT.
CaptainObvious - 8/4/2014, 10:27 AM
If Sony's intention is to get people to stop caring about Spider-Man movies, they are doing a good job.
MrFridayNights - 8/4/2014, 10:27 AM
Sony should just give the production rights back to Marvel and they can keep the distribution rights.
ALegendaryPanda - 8/4/2014, 10:28 AM
Well, this is interesting! But what about Venom??
yossarian - 8/4/2014, 10:28 AM
So Sony is going to make movies about cake baking? Weird.
JamesMan - 8/4/2014, 10:29 AM
Spider-girl or Black Cat? Cool.
Lozzy - 8/4/2014, 10:29 AM
LOL sony, stop embarrassing yourself.
EzioKenway1225 - 8/4/2014, 10:30 AM
i dont mind expanding the spider man universe..making it bigger buti heard that Sinister Six is going to be a redemption story, is that true?... if that is.. that makes no sense cause the movie is called SINISTER Six..not the REDEMPTIVE Six
BlackIceJoe - 8/4/2014, 10:30 AM
I know Sony has the rights to Black Cat. But do they also have the rights to Spider-Woman and Spider-Girl?
AsgardianHobo - 8/4/2014, 10:30 AM
I'm with Panda

Where the hell is Venom? Or are they going to make Venom a female to "shake things up"? Ugh
MrMartinMarvel - 8/4/2014, 10:31 AM
While most people would assume it's going to be Black Cat, I personally hope they make a Silver Sable movie. I mean seriously, what the hell are you gonna do with a Black Cat movie? Silver Sable on the other hand? What CAN'T you do with that? A movie about a badass eastern European woman who leads a group of mercenaries? Yes please!
Pasto - 8/4/2014, 10:31 AM
O Im laffin.
JamesMan - 8/4/2014, 10:31 AM
Something tells me the schedule will go as
2016- Sinister Six
2017- Female Spider Movie
2018- Amazing Spider-Man 3
2019- Venom
2020- Amazing Spider-Man 4

Andrew Garfield's only 30, by ASM3's filming he'll be 32 and I'm sure he can pull off college student then for ASM4 filming in 2018 he'd be 34 playing Peter Parker just living life outside of school. Oh the benefits of looking so damn youthful.
Kyos - 8/4/2014, 10:32 AM
Urm, okay. :/
JoeMomma29 - 8/4/2014, 10:32 AM
Sony, Sony, Sony........please take note of DC. This was the only positive thing about Catwoman.





SuperCat - 8/4/2014, 10:32 AM
I won't be seeing it.

ProfessorX - 8/4/2014, 10:32 AM
If this is a spin-off then it has to be Black Cat, right? There are no other female characters already in the universe...
GreenLantern519 - 8/4/2014, 10:33 AM
Black Cat
JamesMan - 8/4/2014, 10:33 AM
@Ezio

I believe they mean that one character will have a redemptive story in it, so either Electro or Harry will somehow redeem themselves as a hero.
DeusExSponge - 8/4/2014, 10:33 AM
Black Cat! Adding her into this universe would add some variety to this franchise.
Reasonnnn - 8/4/2014, 10:34 AM
So the shittiest studio for comic book movies is doing the first female-led hero in this connected universe era?
Pasto - 8/4/2014, 10:34 AM
This article heading should be changed to: "Further Proof That Sony has Their Head in Their Collective Ass"

CherryBomb - 8/4/2014, 10:34 AM
Wow very interesting.
Of course I'm always excited when studios diversify their content, so a female led superhero movie is amazing. Seems Sony really does want to compete with Marvel (Black Widow/possible Ms Marvel movie) and WB (Wonder Woman movie), and competition is always good.

They're smart though, women are huge consumers of film and it's been proven even this summer how much of a profitable demo they can be. So! Bring it on.

:) still intrigued as to who it will be though.
EzioKenway1225 - 8/4/2014, 10:34 AM
though i have faith in Drew Goddard because i like him and he is directing and writing Sinister Six
Gusto - 8/4/2014, 10:35 AM
Spider-Lady!!!!!

CherryBomb - 8/4/2014, 10:35 AM
I hope it's Arachne, she's so underrated.

0megaDaGod - 8/4/2014, 10:35 AM
Reasonnnn - 8/4/2014, 10:36 AM
@Ezio Wish he stuck with Daredevil and The Martian over this shitty Spider-Man universe.
EzioKenway1225 - 8/4/2014, 10:36 AM
Jamesman-oh ok..that could be cool..i would be up for that..if true..i hope its harry cause while i taught his arc was rushed in TASM2.. I REALLY liked this take on harry and Dehaans portrayal of him
TheDudeRusty - 8/4/2014, 10:37 AM
It's definitely Catwo-I mean Black Cat.
Pasto - 8/4/2014, 10:37 AM
