Sony’s Spider-Man Universe Wants a Female Superhero Movie

After Marvel’s introduced a female Thor, Sony is reportedly planning to create a woman superhero movie to add to its ‘Spider-Man’ universe. The studio pushed back the release of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 3′ by two years. The gap will now be filled by ‘The Sinister Six’ in 2016.

Lisa Joy has been hired to work on the script for the female-centered story, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Sony stable has Black Cat, Silver Sable and Spider-Woman but it is not clear who among these three will get a more prominent role to play.


The studio pushed the release of the third Spider-Man by two years after the second part failed to perform as per the expectations. ‘Sinister Six’, which focuses on the villains of the Spider-Man universe, will instead release on November 11, 2016 with Drew Goddard set to direct.
