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.
