Whereas we’ve got seen many iterations of Spider-Man on the massive display, many of those movies didn’t faucet into his rogue’s gallery of villains. Moreso than every other Marvel character, Spider-Man has a mess of intriguing supporting gamers, with staples like Black Cat, Kraven the Hunter, and Spider-Girl haven’t seen any involvement in live-action movies. Effectively, it seems which may be altering for the latter Spider-Girl, who’s reportedly getting her personal solo undertaking.
Going alongside yesterday’s information break of an untitled Sony/Marvel undertaking releasing October 2021, with fan weblog MCU Cosmic reporting a Spider-Girl undertaking is at present within the works. It’s nonetheless a thriller if that is confirmed or who may be concerned, however the article did spotlight one intriguing wrinkle with the Spider-Girl character.
Apparently, it’s believed that Jessica Drew is shared between Marvel Studios and Sony Footage within the sense that the previous may use her as a undercover agent whereas the latter could make use of her moniker and talents as Spider-Girl. That is just like Quicksilver; each Marvel Studios and Fox used him however Kevin Feige and firm couldn’t tackle his mutant standing.
One other rumor goes additional by including who Sony has in thoughts to star within the movie, in addition to a potential director:
Sony seems to be concerned about having Michelle MacLaren direct the movie. Though she hasn’t directed a function movie, she has a deep resume of labor directing episodes of Recreation of Thrones, Higher Name Saul, and X-Recordsdata. She additionally received two Primetime Emmy Awards for her work on Breaking Dangerous.
The studio additionally has a super actress in thoughts to tackle the function of Jessica Drew: Alicia Vikander (Tomb Raider), who has loads of expertise main a franchise. If the movie comes collectively as Sony desires it to, then we may very well be taking a look at one other connection from the Spider-Verse nook of the universe to the principle MCU.
The truth that Spider-Girl may very well be each a Disney and Sony character has intriguing potential, however I’m glad Sony is lastly giving the character an opportunity to shine on the massive display. Spider-Girl’s arrival not solely permits for the character to develop onscreen, but additionally permits Sony to introduce just a few different unused Sony characters to her movie. I actually admire Sony’s early efforts at creating their very own cinematic universe, and early indicators have been optimistic so far as their planning goes. Let’s hope their efforts repay, as it might be a blast to see a deeper model of Spider-Man’s universe.
