The Spider-Man franchise will be adding a female-led spinoff into the mix that could hit theaters as early as 2017.
Female-Driven Spider-Man Spinoff
Sony plans to release a Spider-Man spinoff with female leads in between a Sinister Six film and the third Amazing Spider-Man movie, reported Deadline. Among the possible characters that could be developed for the film are Silver Sable, Black Cat, Stunner, Firestar and Spider-Woman.
Scripting the female superhero feature for Sony is Westworld writer Lisa Joy. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing.
Aram and Tolmach are also producing Sinister Six, which is slated to premiere Nov. 11, 2016. The expansion of the Spider-Man universe will include the notorious villains in the Spider-Man comic books. Those summoned by Dr. Octopus stand to include Vulture, Mysterio, Electro, Kraven the Hunter and Sandman. Drew Goodard (The Cabin in the Woods, World War Z) is penning the screenplay and will be directing.
The Amazing Spider-Man 3, which was initially expected to bow in 2016, is now looking at a 2018 released date. Both Andrew Garfield and Dean DeHaan are expected to return as Spider-Man/Peter Parker and Green Goblin/ Harry Osborne, respectively. Marc Webb will be returning to direct.
