It's widely believed that Marvel don't hold the rights to Spider-Woman, leading many to wonder why she hasn't appeared in either Sam Raimi or Marc Webb's Spider-Man movies, especially now that a number of spin-offs are in the works. Would Webb be interesting in introducing her? Find out here...

In a recent interview with E! Online, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb was asked if he has any plans to introduce Spider-Woman (a character who have become more prominent in recent years thanks to her role in The Avengers and Marvel's "Ultimate" line of comic books) now that Sony are expanding the iconic Marvel character's cinematic universe. "Anything is possible, but that hasn't been on my mind," he told the site, "but it's an interesting idea." Unfortunately, as it's likely that the third instalment in The Amazing Spider-Man has already been at least provisionally planned out, the fact that Webb hasn't even considered introducing Jessica Drew is troubling for fans of the character to say the least. Could this "interesting idea" change his mind?

Where her origins have nothing to do with Spider-man, I was under the impression that Marvel held the rights to her character.

@WombRider Thats what I was thinking!

This thread makes no sense.

Marvel owns the rights

Spider Woman has nothing to do with Spider Man

It's Marvel's
CherryBomb - 3/19/2014, 3:49 PM
I think he's unaware that Marvel probably owns the rights to her.
But either way, Spider Woman would be so cool to see in the Avengers although people unaware of the comics may see Marvel ripping off from the Spider Man franchise.
Pasto - 3/19/2014, 3:50 PM
People would think she is a Spider-Man rip-off.
Boyle360 - 3/19/2014, 3:50 PM
I hate Spider-Woman. Basically female/alternate versions of super heroes that exist in the same world. Same goes for She-Hulk and Supergirl. Can't think of other examples but I feel they take away from the original characters.
Pasto - 3/19/2014, 3:50 PM
You're goddamn right I'm fancy.
CherryBomb - 3/19/2014, 3:51 PM
As far as Spider related characters go, I always love Julia Carpenter/Arachne.
I think she's very underrated and would be great to see in a mini-series or even as a supporting character in one of the movies.

UltimateHunt - 3/19/2014, 3:53 PM
SpiderWomen will be introduced in A.O.S
There was a reference
CherryBomb - 3/19/2014, 3:53 PM


Yeah exactly what I meant. They'd think Marvel was ripping off from the Spider Man franchise by having a "Spider Woman" in there own. But I hope Marvel go ahead and use her in some form eventually.
JillyMcBeam - 3/19/2014, 3:53 PM
I'm only on board if they use this costume

TheRealRemyLebeau - 3/19/2014, 3:53 PM
Spider-Woman has zero connection with spiderman. Webb or Sony I bet won't touch her due to marvel having the most reasonable connection.
ForMeToPoopOn - 3/19/2014, 3:53 PM
Ah... now I get it. It was E! Online asking. No wonder.

They're hoping for a Spider-Twilight or Spider-Divergent love thingy thing for Spider-Man and Spider-Woman.
AvengersRock - 3/19/2014, 3:53 PM
I agree with @worstfanever. In the history of comics they have very little in common other than their name. I doubt Marc Webb even knows who Spider-Woman is.

Why doesn't CBM have a feature that notifys you when someone responds to your comment
ManDeth - 3/19/2014, 3:55 PM
Spider-Woman is just a cheap derivative character like She-Hulk, Red Hulk, US Agent, Scarlet Spider, She-Thing. F**k them all!

I have a problem with 8 legged freaks. WAY TO BRING THE NIGHTMARES BACK JACKASS!!

@CherryBomb Does she even have a costume on or is that just painted right onto her body xD

Haha, does it annoy you THAT much? XD

Sorry. Hope you don't have a problem with this one:

If I could ever wipe out anything in the entire world, it would be spiders. I HATE THEM!
GeekyCheekyChic - 3/19/2014, 3:59 PM
I always thought she still belonged to Marvel
Pasto - 3/19/2014, 3:59 PM
SUCK IT BITCH! The link won't work on my computer!

*Flips the bird*

It's not annoying, as much as it is worrying.

I hate termites.
Pasto - 3/19/2014, 4:02 PM
One time I was in my room, and a huntsman spider got in through the window. I remember seeing that bastard dart from one side of my room to the other. I becomes so paralyzed I thought I was going to pass out. I got to the point where I started throwing stuff at him. I went nowhere NEAR that thing. I finally managed the strength to grab some shoes and beat the shit out of him.

I hate spiders...
bropous - 3/19/2014, 4:02 PM
Spider-Woman is owned by MArvel, not Sony. She's not associated wih Spider-Man except in a few crossovers or when they are both in The Avengers.
CherryBomb - 3/19/2014, 4:02 PM


That's just one of those ultra-pervy drawings.

JillyMcBeam - 3/19/2014, 4:04 PM
@yoss, what about a raisin spider?
TheFox - 3/19/2014, 4:05 PM
Wait, wait, wait... "It's widely believed that Marvel don't hold the rights to Spider-Woman"?

Why wouldn't Marvel hold the rights to her? Her name is Spider-Woman, sure, but she doesn't have any kind of a connection to Spider-Man beyond that. She's almost never shared a story with Peter (save for in the Ultimate universe, where Jessica Drew is a CLONE of Pete)-- and other than the name, the lenses, and the ability to stick to walls, they have virtually nothing in common. Why would she be bundled in with Spider-Man's movie rights?

And for that matter, shouldn't we know one way or another whether Marvel has those rights? I'm really, sincerely hoping they do, because Jessica Drew is one character who could inject some sorely-needed life into Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. She'd be a perfect addition: a morally complex, engaging character who works as a spy for Hydra, and who has superpowers, a marketable, high-profile name, and a nifty costume to boot! She's everything S.H.I.E.L.D. is missing right now!

God, tell me that Sony doesn't have the rights to Spider-Woman... I like their Spider-Man films, but I just don't think they can do nearly as much with Spider-Woman as Marvel can.

TheManFromMars - 3/19/2014, 4:06 PM
I could make a joke about Spider-Woman, but only Brazillians would get it.
Boyle360 - 3/19/2014, 4:06 PM
She was created by Marvel so they could keep the "Spider-" prefix, and no other reason. But the character got more popular than expected so the character continued to today.
BUT, she does share a superhero name with Peter and she has similar abilities, so in essence she's a female Spider-Man. Which I don't like.
