Everyone is wondering when Marvel will launch their first female superhero film. Will it be Ms. Marvel? How about Spider-Woman? Will She Hulk get the first female stand alone film? It seems as if we finally may have an answer. Deadline.com broke the exclusive story that a female superhero film is coming. Yet it won’t be from the Avengers Universe (Marvel and Disney). In fact, it will come from the Spiderverse (Marvel and Sony).
From Deadline.com: “Having pushed the next installment of its Spider-Man franchise out of 2016 and into 2018, Sony Pictures is doing a top-to-bottom revamp of its most important property, insiders say. And that includes a female superhero movie which is being eyed for a 2017 release date, Deadline has learned”.
Drew Goddard’s Sinister Six is now slated for November 11th, 2016. Which is the next Spiderverse film. As you know The Amazing Spider-Man 3 has been pushed back until 2018, so that leaves 2017 wide open for a stand alone film. Will it be The Black Cat or the yet to be introduced Spider-Woman? How about the Silver Sable? What we do know is that Lisa joy Nolan (Westworld, Reminiscence) has been hired to pen the script.
