While fans are waiting on Marvel or Warner Bros to usher in the first superheroine film (sorry Marvel fans, Feige said Marvel’s too busy for that), the dark horse Sony may be the first to break ground. Amongst their seemingly endless parade of Spider-Man sequels and spin-offs, one of them is a female led spin-off set in the Spider-Man universe.
According to Deadline, the film is currently slated for a 2017 release with Lisa Joy Nolan (Burn Notice) writing the script. There’s no idea who the center will be, so it could be anyone ranging from Black Cat, who was introduced in ASM2, Spider-Woman, Spider-Girl, the new Gwen Stacy version of Spider-Woman or even some reporter following Spider-Man around all indie movie style. Regardless of who the focus will be, this’ll probably the first of its kind even if it took way too long for it to happen.[via Deadline]
