Sony Green Lights Female Spider-Man Spin-Off

by at .  Updated at . Comments

As Sony readies to release The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on DVD, they have news that they have green lit a female-led spin-off of the webbed wonder franchise.

Lisa Joy Nolan (yes, The Dark Knight writer Jonathan Nolan’s wife) has been hired to pen a screenplay that focuses on one of the female characters in the Spider-Man universe. It could be Black Cat (teased with a small role by Felicity Jones in The Amazing Spider-Man 2), or perhaps Spider-Woman or Silver Stable.

We’re already expecting a Sinister Six spin-off in 2016, so as we previously reported, Sony’s extension of the Spider-Man universe looks like it is expanding even further.

This also arrives as news comes that Ghostbusters 3 will reboot with an all female cast!

Spider-Man Movies Quotes

J. Jonah Jameson: Come here. Parker, what do you know about high society?
Peter Parker: Oh... well, I...
J. Jonah Jameson: Don't answer that. My society photographer got hit in the head by a polo ball. You're all I got. Big party tonight for an American hero, my son the astronaut.
Peter Parker: Mr. Jameson, can you pay me in advance?
[Jameson laughs hysterically for a few seconds]
J. Jonah Jameson: You serious? What, pay you for just standing there? The planeterium, 8:00. There's the door.

Green Goblin: Spider-Man. This is why only fools are heroes - because you never know when some lunatic will come along with a sadistic choice. Let die the woman you love... or suffer the little children. Make your choice, Spider-Man, and see how a hero is rewarded.
Spider-Man: Don't do it, Goblin.
Green Goblin: We are who we choose to be... now, CHOOSE.
