Sony might have some interesting plans for the future. It seems that the famous company will soon release a female superhero movie. However, fans should not expect to see this movie so fast. Reports indicate that this spin-off from the Amazing Spider-Man series will be released in 2017.
It has been said that producers are not yet sure who will play the lead character, but among the possible options are included Black Cat, Spider-Woman, as well as Silver Sable. Still, there are no confirmations on this aspect, at least for now.
If Sony will release this female superhero movie, the company will actually create such a product ahead of Disney and Marvel, which are well known to control much of the Marvel universe. Well, some reports reveal that Marvel and Sony are actually working together at a spin-off film of Spider-Man, but this time the main role will have a female heroine instead of a hero.
The news is not very shocking having under consideration the fact that Marvel has previously revealed that they want to have a female superhero in their productions. It seems that Marvel is sure that people want to see female superhero movies and there is no point in not trying to create such a project for the fans.
Executives at Sony have not confirmed so far the fact that the female superhero they are thinking of is in the Spider-Man universe. So, it is yet to find out which female character the film will be centered on. Marvel has announced a female Thor, so it surely is simple to say that this is a new trend in Hollywood.
“I think it comes down to timing, which is what I’ve sort of always said, and it comes down to us being able to tell the right story. I very much believe in doing it,” Marvel president Kevin Feige said. “I very much believe that it’s unfair to say, “People don’t want to see movies with female heroes,” then list five movies that were not very good, therefore, people didn’t go to the movies because they weren’t good movies, versus [because] they were female leads,” he added.
Well, it is yet to see what will be released and if fans will like this new female superhero.
