7 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

The Spider-Man franchise will be adding a female-led spinoff into the mix that could hit theaters as early as 2017.

Female-Driven Spider-Man Spinoff

Sony plans to release a Spider-Man spinoff with female leads in between a Sinister Six film and the third Amazing Spider-Man movie, reported Deadline. Among the possible characters that could be developed for the film are Silver Sable, Black Cat, Stunner, Firestar and Spider-Woman.

Scripting the female superhero feature for Sony is Westworld writer Lisa Joy. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing.

Aram and Tolmach are also producing Sinister Six, which is slated to premiere Nov. 11, 2016. The expansion of the Spider-Man universe will include the notorious villains in the Spider-Man comic books. Those summoned by Dr. Octopus stand to include Vulture, Mysterio, Electro, Kraven the Hunter and Sandman. Drew Goodard (The Cabin in the Woods, World War Z) is penning the screenplay and will be directing.

Andrew Garfield And Michael Shannon Are Serious In First Image From 99 Homes

6 August 2014 1:16 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ramin Bahrani is not a name that many people know of, but he is one of the finest filmmakers working today. Anyone who saw Life Itself, the documentary about late film critic Roger Ebert, may remember that Bahrani befriended Ebert after the reviewer praised some of his early work, and it is likely due to Ebert’s influence that Bahrani has such a renowned reputation. His latest film, 99 Homes, is slated to premiere at the Venice and Toronto film festivals next month, and today we have our first look at it.

The drama stars Andrew Garfield and Michael Shannon, two stellar actors who often work on the stage but are now best-known for their roles in superhero films (Garfield in Marc Webb’s Spider-Man movies, Shannon in Man of Steel). Based on the serious scowls on both of their faces in the first image above, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, this »

Watch: 20 Minutes Of Deleted Scenes From 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' Including Alternate Ending

6 August 2014 10:16 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Last month, some details emerged about the plot elements of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" that were dropped or changed. It now looks like many of those elements have emerged in a compilation of deleted scenes for the movie, which have wormed their way online. Running twenty minutes long, the footage includes scenes with the quality everyone wanted more from the widely unloved Marc Webb film: Campbell Scott. Yep, Peter Parker's Dad takes center stage in an alternate ending, which sees him reemerge after the death of Gwen Stacy, visiting his son at her grave in a scene that would have appeared in place of a montage of the seasons in the finished movie. Naturally, Peter is freaked out to see his previously thought-to-be-dead Dad return in the flesh, but he does receive some parental advice in the form of one of the most iconic lines in the series. Elsewhere, everyone keeps forgetting Electro's birthday, »

23 Minutes Of Deleted Amazing Spider-man 2 Scenes

6 August 2014 9:51 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp...

The Amazing Spider-man 2 "Secrets" Preview Confirms Felicity Jones Played 'Black Cat'

6 August 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Felicty Jones' appearance as "Felicia" in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was handled in a way which could have led to her returning in a larger capacity as Felica Hardy somewhere down the line or the role being recast and someone else hired to play Black Cat while no one really gave Harry Osborn's assistant much thought. However, the officially released trailer for the digital release of the sequel confirms that she was indeed playing Felicia Hardy in the movie. Director Marc Webb and producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach played coy on this subject when quizzed during interviews for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, so could this mean that we see Jones suit up as Black Cat in that planned female-led spin-off? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts and theories below! »

The Amazing Spider-Man Franchise To Get Female-Led Spin-Off Film

5 August 2014 2:32 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

DC have been criticised for failing to bring Wonder Woman a solo film, despite it being in development ever since Lynda Carter pulled her star spangled briefs on. Marvel have been vaunted for bringing out a movie with a talking tree and raccoon before DC even managed a superhero film with a female lead, but they’ve failed at that task too – seriously, where is our Black Widow film? Or do we just need to close our eyes and pretend that’s what Lucy is? Looks like it’s up to Sony’s to bat for women superheroes with another one of those Amazing Spider-Man spin-off flicks they’re so fond of announcing.

We’ve already got a Sinister Six film, directed by Drew Goddard, slated for release in 2016 (although we’re still at a loss as to how that’s gonna work without Spidey, unless it’s »

Spider-Man spinoff with female lead planned for 2017

4 August 2014 9:49 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sony is reportedly planning to make a Spider-Man spinoff with a female superhero for 2017.

It is not clear which Marvel Comics heroine will take the lead, although Silver Sable, Black Cat, Stunner, Firestar, Spider-Woman and Spider-Girl are possible contenders.

According to Deadline, Lisa Joy (Westworld, Reminiscence) is writing the script for the film, alongside Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach as producers.

The development comes days after Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said that he hoped to have a female-centric movie out "sooner rather than later".

"I think it comes down to timing, which is what I've sort of always said, and it comes down to us being able to tell the right story. I very much believe in doing it," he told Cbr.

"I very much believe that it's unfair to say, 'People don't want to see movies with female heroes,' then list five movies that were not very good, »

Remember when you still had hope that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 could be a solid sequel?   Now you can relive those 10 minutes because the opening sequence of Marc Webb’s second go-around with the hero is here.  Having seen the film, it’s impossible to ignore the fact that it never came together, but this sequence does serve as a reminder that there were some cool parts to it. The release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opening scene is tied to the DVD and Blu-ray debut, but it also hit amidst of flurry of Spidey spinoff movie news including the plan for a female-led film, Sinister Six story details and also the reveal of the new title for Alex Kurtzman’s Venom movie, Venom Carnage.  Hit the jump for more. Again, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is a pretty disappointing installment overall and it’s incredibly tough not to laugh at Paul Giamatti’s silly, »

Sony Will Add Female Superhero to Spider-Man Universe

4 August 2014 11:32 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Executives at Sony have seen renderings for a female-driven superhero film that takes place in the Spider-Man universe — which several have called a passion project for co-chairman Amy Pascal.

Although the script, penned by Lisa Joy, has yet to reveal which female character the film will center on, Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach have already signed on to produce. The film, which could focus on Black Cat, Silver Sabler or Dazzler, to name a few possibilities, has not yet been dated.

A 2017 release date makes sense, considering “The Sinister Six,” directed by Drew Goddard and focusing on some of the villains in Peter Parker’s world, is in 2016 and “The Amazing Spider-Man 3,” directed by Marc Webb, was pushed to 2018.

Female-driven superhero films are having a moment in Hollywood, with Marvel announcing a female Thor, and “Lucy,” starring Scarlett Johansson, besting “Hercules” at the box office.

1 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

With Marvel and James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy set to take the box office by storm this weekend after a wave of overwhelmingly positive reviews, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow has sent out a new image of leading man Chris Pratt in that movie before audiences get to enjoy him as Star-Lord.

Over the past few months, the director has shared plenty of great behind the scenes teases from the set of Jurassic World, following in the footsteps of the likes of The Amazing Spider-Man 2′s Marc Webb, X-Men: Days of Future Past helmer Bryan Singer, and funnily enough, Guardians of the Galaxy’s James Gunn!

In the movie, Pratt plays someone who is doing behavioral research on the raptors.

Based on what we’ve heard so far about Jurassic World, it’s shaping up to be one of 2015′s best movies, and Colin Trevorrow is a »
