Joblo.com broke the story earlier this week that a tweet that was posted by Exhibitor Relations that a new untitled Sony/Marvel film is poised to be unleashed in theaters on October 8, 2021. The obvious thing during that time was to speculate as to what
this unknown movie could be a Madame Web spin-off, a film focusing on Kraven the Hunter, or plans to finally capitalize on Sony’s building of the Sinister Six. Needless to say, there are plenty of characters within the Spider-Verse that could receive their own film, and now speculation of a Spider-Woman solo outing are spinning out of the old Rumor Mill.
To be perfectly clear, neither Sony nor Marvel have officially confirmed that development on a Spider-Woman movie is underway, so please take the following “news” with a substantial grain of salt.
Weaving her way into the Marvel Universe in 1977 courtesy of Marvel Spotlight #32, Jessica Drew was created by Archie Goodwin, Sal Buscema, Jim Mooney and Marie Severin. As the story goes, Jessica’s own father injected her with a serum made from rare spider blood. Afterward, she was placed inside a genetic accelerator that altered her DNA. Upon exiting the apparatus, Jessica discovered that she too had powers not unlike another friendly neighborhood wall-crawler, as well as the ability to shoot venom blasts from her fingertips. If this power set is sounding a bit too Miles Morales for you, I’ll also add that Jessica is armed with a pheromone secretion that she can use to entice her prey.
For the moment, no details about the Sony/Marvel film slated for an October 8, 2021 release are available at this time.
