It’s pretty clear that Sony’s in a pickle when it comes to its sole comic book franchise, Spider-Man. This is the series that, in concert with the original X-Men, kicked off this whole modern era of superhero movies in the first place, but the second installment in its reboot of the character, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, was the lowest grossing Spider-Man movie yet and the critical response was, well, not pretty. Before the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Sony was touting an all-Spider-Man universe of its own to rival Marvel’s cinematic universe, with two more Amazing Spider-Man sequels, a Venom movie, and a Sinister Six movie all in the works and tentatively slated for release. After Amazing Spider-Man 2 faltered, however, we have heard very little from the studio aside from moving up Sinister Six as its next planned Spider-Man movie.
Sony appeared to hit on an interesting idea recently when we learned that they were planning a female Spider-Man movie spinoff for release in 2017. Now some rumored new details about that film have landed online, claiming that it’s actually an all-female Spider-Man movie called Glass Ceiling. More after the jump.
