We’ve known for a while now that Sony has been looking to build-out their own Marvel cinematic universe centered around the characters from the Spider-Man comics.
A writer and director weren’t mentioned.
The Jessica Drew character has connections to S.W.O.R.D. (cosmic counterpart to S.H.I.E.L.D.) which will be introduced in the WandaVision series coming in the fall and is rumored to feature in a Secret Invasion Disney+ series, however, Sony likely won’t have access to S.W.O.R.D. in this project.
There had been previous reports of Cindy Moon aka Silk getting her own live-action film and that Jessica Drew aka Spider-Woman could be part of the all-female lineup in the Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse (earned a Best Animated Feature Film Oscar) spinoff animated film as well.
Venom becoming a massive hit earning $856 million globally without an appearance from Tom Holland’s Spider-Man showed that Sony could pull-off spinoffs that audiences will support.
Jared Leto’s Morbius is set for release on July 31st and Tom Hardy’s Venom 2 on October 2nd.
Morbius’ teaser trailer revealed that the film will directly connect to Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man Far From Home with the cameo from Michael Keaton’s Vulture during a prison break scene.
A third untitled Spider-Man directed by Jon Watts and starring Tom Holland begins shooting this summer with a July 16th, 2021 release date.
Sony recently announced they’ll be releasing an untitled Spider-Man project on October 8th, 2021, which most likely will end up being Kraven The Hunter as there is an established script penned by Richard Wenk (The Expendables 2).
Other spinoff projects in the works include Madame Webb, Black Cat, Silver Sable, Nightwatch, Sinister Six, and Jackpot.
I guess we’ll have to wait and see if this Spider-Woman film gets confirmed.
