Sony set female-led superhero film from ‘Spider-Man’ universe for 2017

Felicity Jones

Seeing as Marvel Studios won’t do it anytime soon, Sony has reportedly pledged to release a female-led superhero film in 2017.

According to Deadline, they’ll find a female character from the Spider-Man universe (which Sony holds the rights to) to base a movie around.

It follows news of them delaying The Amazing Spider-Man 3 to 2018 following the exit of its screenwriters, as well as the somewhat disappointing critical and commercial reception to The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Sinister Six – something of an Avengers team-up flick featuring Spidey’s most dastardly villains – is still slated for release in 2016.

Many are speculating Black Cat will be the recipient of her very own flick, what with her alter ego being introduced in TASM2, played by Felicity Jones.

Lisa Joy Nolan has been hired to pen the script, suggesting Sony has a very good idea of who the film will concern. The rest of us just have to go crazy guessing wildly for the next few months.
