Sony Planning Female SPIDER-MAN Spinoff for 2017 Release

by     Posted 137 days ago

female-spider-man-movie-2017

Though the studio is certainly celebrating the success of Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel Studios was once again called out this weekend for its lack of a female superhero movie, and rightfully so.  The superhero genre is bigger than ever, but even in the midst of numerous $200 million plus tentpoles from various studios, we have yet to see a female-led franchise pic.  All of this despite the fact that female moviegoers make up a hefty portion of audiences (the Guardians opening weekend was 44% female—the biggest yet for a Marvel movie), and yet are massively underrepresented at the marketplace.  When studios do decide to make quality female-led features, the results speak for themselves.  Just look at the grosses of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Frozen.

And so now it looks like the time has finally come for one of the majors to move forward with a female-led superhero pic, but it’s actually coming from the least likely of sources: Sony Pictures.  The studio holds the rights to just one comic-book franchise, Spider-Man, but now it appears that they’re keen on breaking new ground with a female Spider-Man spinoff movie, which could hit theaters as soon as 2017.  Much more on this film after the jump.

amazing-spider-man-2Sony hit a rough patch with this May’s release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  At first glance, the film’s $707 million worldwide box office might look impressive.  However, Sony was hoping to crack the $1 billion mark with the extremely expensive sequel, and the film ended up grossing less than its predecessor.  In fact, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 now stands as the lowest grossing Spidey entry to date.

Prior to the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Sony was touting big plans for its franchise, taking a cue from Marvel and expanding the Spider-Man universe to include The Amazing Spider-Man 3 in 2016 followed by The Sinister Six and Venom spinoff movies.  Those plans have now been retooled, with Sony instead putting Sinister Six on the frontburner with a November 11, 2016 release date for the Drew Goddard-helmed pic, while Spider-Man 3 has been pushed to 2018.

But that’s not the end of Sony’s further restructuring of the franchise, as Deadline now reports that the studio is putting together a female superhero movie set within the Spider-Man universe, which is being eyed for a 2017 release date.  Sony has already tapped Lisa Joy Nolan to pen the script, whose credits include Burn Notice and the upcoming Westworld TV remake.  She also happens to be the wife of The Dark Knight screenwriter Jonathan Nolan, brother to Christopher Nolan. 

spider-man-black-catIt’s unclear which character(s) will lead this untitled film, but the Spidey universe has a solid gallery of female superhero characters to choose from.  The obvious choice is Black Cat aka Felicia Hardy, who was played by Felicity Jones in what amounted to basically a cameo in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  There’s also Silver Sable and Spider-Girl.  Someone more knowledgeable about comics than I probably has a better idea of who might be the best fit to lead a superhero pic on her own.

This seems like a really smart move on Sony’s part.  Audiences are clearly feeling Spider-Man fatigue despite the fact that Andrew Garfield is excellent in the lead role, so there’s no harm in putting the principal franchise on the backburner for a few years.  In the meantime, while Marvel, Warner Bros., and Fox are “too busy” to get a female-led superhero movie going, Sony has the opportunity to jump in and be the first out of the gate.  Now the next step is hiring a talented filmmaker to ensure that the female Spider-Man movie is of high quality.

Michelle MacLaren has been doing incredible work as a television director for years on series like Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones.  It’s high time she made the move to features, and what better way to signal that you’re serious about making a genuinely good female Spider-Man movie than hiring an excellent female director to bring the film to fruition?

Though Sony’s handling of the current Spider-Man franchise hasn’t been extremely encouraging, I’m hopeful that Amy Pascal and Co. will make the right decision here.  Marc Webb was an intriguing and promising choice to lead the first redo, so my fingers are crossed that Sony can make a similarly bold move in signing a female director to steer this groundbreaking female superhero movie to success.

    At a certain point we just have to all come together and tell Sony to get F**ked.

      Seriously, this is a case of “So if we give you a female superhero you’ll start seeing our Spidey movies again?! Okay, here!”

      Go home Sony, you’re done.

      Are there any actual comic nerds/fans working at Sony other than Mark Webb?
      Avi Arad doesn’t count because his whole attitude towards fans, the public & Marvel reeks of bad sportsmanship douche-ery.

      Any comics fan worth their salt would’ve seen the Eddie Brock fan film starring the guy from True Blood & green lit the heck out of it.

  • dudu

    I might actually skip on this one.

  • Cale

    I want the Marvel Cinematic Universe Spider-Man. We’ve seen what Spider-Man is like by himself and with his supporting characters. I want to see what he is like with the Avengers.

  • http://www.collider.com/ DNAsplitter

    It’s obviously Black Cat and I think a female superhero film would be a nice change for the superhero genre (I don’t consider GOTG a superhero film). Outside of Elektra I think she would be a fine choice for the big screen. Sony sounds like they are in turnaround mode after the lackluster TASM2 and are trying to think of new ways to injest new life in the Spider-Man universe and quite honestly TASM2 wasnt bad but we’ve seen that movie 4 other times w the same results. A nice change is what they need to focus on and move forward w the Sinister Six and Venom spin offs and have Spider-Man be in it but only as Spider-Man – no Peter Parker story. Sony should do that and work w Marvel on seeing if they can get Spider-Man in the MCU for an Avengers line-up.

    • https://twitter.com/adamcrossphoto Adam Cross

      TASM2 was going well untill it hit the 2 hour mark and they killed Gwen and then that awful, awful ending with that ridiculous Rhino suit BS.

  • Jan

    How about getting your MALE SPIDER-MAN FRANCHISE sorted out properly first.

    • Adam Chitwood

      Or, you know, giving that one a rest after 5 straight films and breaking new ground with a female-led movie in the same universe.

      • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

        Right, but how does this not feel like Sony pandering in an attempt to create something, anything, with their Spider-man franchise to make it noteworthy again?

      • Adam Chitwood

        Could be, but that doesn’t negate the fact that we’re getting our first female-led superhero movie of the modern era. That’s a big deal.

      • Thomas K.

        Bro, Catwoman, Elektra?
        What is Modern Era?
        I’d think at least 2000 would be Modern Era.

      • Adam Chitwood

        I meant “modern era” in a post-Marvel sense, now that studios are going superhero crazy.

      • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

        It would be a big deal, but I guess the parallel that immediately springs to mind is Sarah Palin. Would she have been the first female vice president? Sure, but she was/is also batshit crazy and many women regard her NOT being elected as the dodging of a bullet (many women, though fewer, would seem to have a similar opinion of Hillary Clinton and the presidency).

        My point being: it’s not enough to be first, it has to be the first one done right, otherwise it’ll just get lumped in with Cat Woman and Elektra, and Sony hasn’t shown themselves capable of a quality product lately.

      • Thomas K.

        @LexWalker:disqus This Guy Gets It.

      • Adam Chitwood

        Definitely. I’m not saying it will be good, but to immediately dismiss the notion and say Sony should be focusing on Spider-Man again feels short-sighted. As I said in the article, with Pascal in charge at Sony I’m hopeful they’ll put together a strong creative team and do it right.

      • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

        Yeah, they could do both, frankly though, they need to bring in new blood to produce and make creative choices. If those new, and hopefully, smarter execs still want Black Cat? Fine. That is assuming Sony doesn’t sell off Spidey like some rumors have once again suggested (such rumors go around every time Sony Pictures doesn’t have the year it expected).

      • TigerFIST

        Good point. If black widow kicks ass in A2 (and the movie is a home run too) I’m sure Marvel will do a Black Widow movie. Black widow first before Ms. Marvel b/c the KREE need to be established before hand

      • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

        The Kree kind of just got established in GotG. They threw the name around a bit and in Agents of SHIELD – if anyone watches that.

      • TigerFIST

        yes mentioned and acknowledged but I wouldn’t say established. I’m just saying I would rather see another film with the Kree (the whole race an not just a few) having a stronger presence before jumping to a Ms. Marvel movie since she gets her powers from them through some accident.

      • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

        Which might be the reason we’re getting a GotG2 before we’re getting a Ms. Marvel. That might be the best way for them to open that up and why it’s getting fast-tracked.

      • http://www.collider.com/ DNAsplitter

        “Sarah Palin has super powers… she can see Russia from her backyard!”
        That right there will be the set up for Sony’s first female superhero film…

      • Harry hartounian

        Catwoman. There you go – it’s been done before, (though, admittedly, to lackluster fanfare.) So there’s no novelty to be gotten from this – as if that’s a logical reason for justifying the shifting of a universally recognized property. Hopefully we can all move on and agree that this is a terrible idea.

      • Derek Johns

        This still feels like the movie equivalent of Leela being the first woman to play Major League Blurnsball in Futurama. It was a complete publicity stunt to help sell tickets for a failing franchise and also proved to be really damaging to the people that wanted to do it legitimately.

      • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

        I love this reference. Well done.

      • TigerFIST

        Sony never should’ve rebooted it…

      • Jan

        Regardless, Sony’s Marvel franchise is being pushed ahead with an energy – a creative force – that hasn’t been particularly inspiring so far. We’ll see what Goddard does with Sinister Six and Nolan with this unspecified Female Character, but to me Raimi was doing fine with his Spidey franchise. Yes, Spider-Man 3 was a mess but nothing that couldn’t have been fixed with a fourth installment. Occasionally, I still mourn the fact we never got Malkovich as Vulture and Hatheway as Black Cat.

  • calebrcrawford

    Diversity for the sake of the diversity will in my opinion be a disservice to female empowerment in the realm of comic book movies. The author cites the success of Frozen and the Hunger Games, but both of those properties have good source material. If Sony is just trying to be first to the female superhero scene, we may all get another Elektra or Catwoman film, and I think that helps no one.
    There are great female comic book characters out there written by great female writers. My favorite is DC’s new 52 Batgirl title which has been written by Gail Simone. That is one of my favorite comics to read each month, and the character is interesting because Simone knows that the story needs an interesting character not just diversity and female empowerment for the sake of diversity and female empowerment.
    I feel like Sony trying to pander to these things or be the first studio to make a big female superhero film (even though they are not as I have already cited Elektra and Catwoman) is more demeaning to the female empowerment cause because the final product will likely be uninteresting crap that no one will want to see. Then studio execs will be like, “See, no one wants a female led superhero film.” When the truth is, people want a good movie with relatable and interesting characters (Transformer success not withstanding).
    HOWEVER, Sony could produce a great film and all my whining would have been useless, but I have little faith in that studio’s superhero development after TASM2.

  • Kondorr

    Whatever… they make terrible Spiderman movies…their world building just collapsed on itself… they try to use the pro-female-superhero hype to get a lead on, but lets be honest… they will do it, they will fail, and then…. THEN Marvel will go in and show them how it is done…

    Sony just went for the position to leave their pants down so that marvel or maybe DC can violate them hard.

  • Thomas K.

    I’m annoyed with the “too busy” line that keeps being thrown around here and other websites about the MCU.

    From all the quotes I’ve read.
    It has nothing to do with being busy.
    It has to do with the ability to make a quality Film, with a quality Filmmaker, and the right Character/Lead Actress.

    We don’t need a Black Widow movie, She’s had 3 once Ultron comes out. (For the Record, We also have no need for another Thor, Iron Man, or any of their secondary characters to get one, as well.)
    Now, Say it was Ms. Marvel…. Who would play Her, who are You trusting to Direct it, and/or Write it?
    Even with Ms. Marvel…. Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Inhumans ALL deserve a Film before Ms. Marvel, and not because of Gender, but because of Pure Importance to the Comic World that all these Films are being based off of.

    So now, say Ms. Marvel becomes a new Franchise. Do you want Marvel to rush it out before all their other properties, just so they can say “Hey, Don’t be mad at Us, We made Your Female Superhero movie.” No, You want it to be the best movie possible, hell I’d love for it to turn out to be the best film in the entire MCU.

    But looking at Previous track records of actual Female Superhero/Action-Hero Movies(Not Book Adaptions, or Animated Films that clearly are tailored to be a Family Film to some degree), When it’s a great Film, it makes nothing in Box office, and if it makes money, it’s usually not a good film.
    Ex. Hanna, Elektra, Catwoman, Tomb Raider, AeonFlux, Batgirl, Supergirl, Sucker Punch, Salt, etc.

    Have there been few fantastic films that also, made money, of course there have, but those weren’t thrown out just to make money, or part of a Universe that is obviously much bigger than a single individual Film, and/or Character.

    This has nothing to do with Gender Equality, it has to do with making a Great Film.
    Go write a Film with a Female lead, get it produced, prove it will make a shit-load of Money. And then I’ll completely 100% agree with You.

    • Thomas K.

      And this REEAALLLYY seems like Sony is just trying to take advantage of all the Press about how Marvel, Fox, and DC are “Too Busy” just to try and redeem the only Property they still have a hold on.

    • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

      If she’d do it, give it to Kathryn Bigelow. She knows how to direct action, and she has a pretty good eye for a script, and she’s done a couple military-oriented movies which means she could get the aesthetic right for the backstory as well.

      • Thomas K.

        Awesome Choice.
        But now, When is She going to be available, or even if she wants to at all, direct Ms. Marvel?
        Probably at least not for a Year or Two, minimum.
        Now, that means She won’t get to even work on the Script, with whatever Writer is working on the script, for 2 Years. So we would most likely not see a Ms. Marvel film for at least 4-5 Years.

        Like Feige said before, it’s all a matter of Timing. Not anything else, Marvel has proven, they will do what they want, and not be forced in to anything they don’t think is good enough to be made. And that includes making a shitty Female Superhero Flick, just for the sake of making a Female Superhero Flick, they want to make a Great Female Superhero Flick, and they are going to wait as long as they have to, to accomplish that.

      • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

        If you look at her IMDb – she has nothing scheduled. Which is kinda weird for a Director, but also kind of perfect. So yeah, she’s theoretically available right away.

      • Thomas K.

        Really?
        Oh snap, I could’ve sworn I read She was starting on Her next project a few months back.
        Well then Yeah, Marvel, Call Her up ASAP.
        She really would probably be the best case scenario for a Ms. Marvel film.

      • bidi

        i can’t stand her over use of shaky cam. steady that camera, Kathryn!

      • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

        Disney might make her rein that in, to fit better with the overall style of the MCU.

  • TigerFIST

    Not happy with idea. Would rather rights go back to Marvel

  • Vos_L

    Sadly, what will happen is that Sony will botch this and make a bad movie again and it will make it harder than ever to get a studio to do a major movie on a female comic book hero.

    • Math

      It’s a tricky movie to pull off and in the hands of a studio that can’t pull off a simple formula like Spider-man… I mean come on… how hard is it really to make a decent Spider-man story? There are literally hundreds of great stories about Spider-man that have been created already and they can’t even pull off one good movie. They are going to fuck up this movie. It won’t sell with audiences because it’ll look like crap and they will claim that audiences are not interested in female lead comic book hero. Word will spread across Hollywood and they will all agree that female comic book hero based movies don’t have an audience. They will completely overlook the fact that all their previous attempts where crappy movies and that’s the real reason they never had success.

    a black cat movie could be awesome.felicity jones is a very talented young actress.that would be the best choice.

  • TheMuppetManiac

    How about they actually make a good Amazing Spider-Man movie, before spinning it off into other franchises. And is Spider-Man going to pop up in all of them? It just seems like a bad idea. I just get the feeling a Black Cat movie would be them trying to make a movie for Hunger Games fans and end up with crap.

      One wonders if Sony hopes to treat Spider-Man like the way Fox does with Wolverine: Showing up in all the X-Men movies.

    So instead of taking the notes from marvel studios successes and trying to add those qualities to the sony films… They’re starting at the opposite end and hoping to do right, the things that marvel has done wrong.

    I got nothing against having more female lead super-hero movies, but these spin-off movies are just not the right approach to get the most out of your Spider-man franchise.

    I don’t know why Sony doesn’t see it. They already have an expanded universe with Spider-man… but Spider-man is the connecting glue to all stories. If they where intelligent and wanted to really exploit the universe of Spider-man to make as many movies as possible, they could easily release 2+ Spider-man movies per year and they would still have enough material to create new original movies for decades. It’s Spider-man !!! He already have hundreds of great stories that could easily be adapted into great movies, and that’s not counting the possibility of also creating new original ideas.

    You just have to manage it like you manage a TV show, but on a greater scale. You hire multiple writers and directors and sign your actors like you do your TV actors, a per year/season (+/- = 2 movies). You can even make some movies out of order if you want. Make some movies about when he’s older and married to Mary-Jane and make some of when he’s a kid in high-school, being bullied… and then make some stories of when he’s in college and let the writers/directors explore their favorite eras. That way you can even cast different actors, which is useful if certain actors starts getting too greedy or too busy and difficult to renew their contract. It just opens up so many possibilities…

    If Star Wars want to release a new movie per year, and Marvel is already releasing 2-3 movies per year (of various characters I admit, but still…) …why wouldn’t a 2+ Spider-man movies per year pay off? It’s Spider-man! It’s always gonna make money. Worst case, lower your per movie budget a little. You can still make a great movie without having to spend 200M+$. You can spend more to make some of the bigger events (sinister six or Venom as example of popular stories which would justify bigger budgets) and you can make smaller budget ones with less popular villains… You get to spend more time developing the characters and focusing on the little things (which was exactly what the comics where so good at doing). And you have so many villains to chose from, not to mention returning ones and then you can start playing with group ups like sinister six. Or ultimately, if you are smart, you eventually make a deal with Disney to create some cross overs. They will eventually reach that point where it will become a no-brainer to do so and mutually beneficial. You can even make movies where the villains are the main characters if they really want (and even put a female as the lead of that particular story)… but you have to have Spider-man in there somewhere, even if it’s more a supporting role then a lead role.

    Stop trying to make the “Ultimate Spider-man Movie” and unnecessary spin-offs… and start making lots of good simple Spider-man movies. We’ll all be better for it. If there’s one character that should be easy to come up with many interesting stories, it’s frigging Spider-man. He is your extended universe.

    Am I the only one who sees this? Doesn’t that sounds like a much better plan if you really want to get the maximum out of your Spider-man franchise? Sony are sitting on gold. They just need to start being smarter about how to manage their franchise so they can exploit it at maximum efficiency.

    For years we’ve been listening to the internet bitch about where the other Avengers are when the mains get their stand-alone movies. You start dipping into the well too deep with Spider-Man – and then don’t include Spider-Man – I don’t know. It just seems to have mediocrity written all over it.
    Marvel’s key seems to be zeroing in on stories it thinks people will find worth telling. Sony – and Fox and Warner Bros. for that matter – may find it wise to take a page from that book.
