First Thor becomes female, then an all-female Ghostbusters--what next? Both soccer World Cup finalists will come from countries with women leaders? No! (Well, yes, but that's not what we're talking about.) Sony Pictures has announced that a female superhero will emerge from the Spider-Man franchise and pilot her own movie, Deadline reports.
Since there won't be another Spider-Man in 2016 as originally planned--that's scheduled for 2018 now--Sony plans to feed the beast that is the hungry Spider-Man audience with a new movie in 2017. Just which Spider-Man female character will start saving the world in that movie is not yet known. There are plenty of options to choose from--Black Cat who was so memorable in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 seems ready. Deadline also gives a fighting chance to Silver Sable, Stunner, Firestar and Spider-Woman. The idea of a Spider-Man spinoff is particularly appealing because that's, you know, what Spidey does--spin.
