Lisa Joy has been hired to write a script for a new superhero movie that focuses on a superheroine, rather than the usual spandex-clad men. Sony says the new hero will join the Spider-Man universe. Could we soon see Spider-Woman in the movie world?
Sony’s surprise announcement comes shortly after “Lucy” killed the box office competition recently. The adrenaline-charged action flick was led by female actress Scarlett Johansson and earned an eye-popping $43.9 million during its debut weekend.
Could we be looking at a golden age of women in comic books? Marvel has only recently announced that they’re going to release a female Thor character soon. After “Spider-Man 2” performed dismally at the box office, Sony pushed back the release of “Spider-Man 3” from 2016 to 2018 to focus on this new, female-led movie.
