Female super-hero to save the day in Spider-Man spin off

It has been reported that Sony will be making a Spider-Man spin off in 2017 with a female super-hero lead.

The announcement comes just days after the president of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige said that he wants to have a film with a female lead 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 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, therefore, people didn't go to the movies because they weren't good movies, versus [because] they were female leads.

“And they don't mention Hunger Games, Frozen, Divergent. You can go back to Kill Bill or Aliens. These are all female-led movies. It can certainly be done.”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves!
