EXCLUSIVE: Sony Pictures is taking its Spider-Man universe into a new direction in a #MeToo moment where Wonder Woman is being followed by a growing number of female superheroes. The studio is working on an animated Spider-Women film that will focus on three generations of women with Spidey powers. Bek Smith will write the script.
One of these characters could very well be Spider-Gwen, a breakout character from the Spider-Verse. This all builds on the buzz preceding the animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
Amy Pascal will produce, and it’s likely that Avi Arad and Phil Lord & Christopher Miller will also be involved as will Christina Steinberg.
The studio is also already moving forward on a Spider-Verse sequel that will continue Miles Morales’ story. Joaquim Dos Santos will direct.
Smith is rewriting an untitled LEGO movie for Rideback and Warner Bros and most recently she worked on production rewrites on Captain Marvel, this after spending a year in the Marvel Writer program. She is repped by Verve and Kaplan/Perrone.
