Rumors: Sony Sets Sights on Live-Action Spider-Gwen Film


Sony is reportedly diving into a new project, developing a live-action film focused on Spider-Gwen. This comes despite the mixed reactions to their recent movies in the Sony Spider-Man Universe (SSU), like ‘Morbius’ and ‘Madame Web’. It seems Sony isn’t shying away from taking another shot at expanding their universe with more character-centric stories.

The character of Spider-Gwen first swung into the spotlight in 2014 through ‘Edge of Spider-Verse’ #2. In her universe, it’s Gwen Stacy, not Peter Parker, who gets bitten by the radioactive spider. She takes on the mantle of Spider-Woman but is popularly known as Spider-Gwen. She’s been a hit, known for her cool demeanor and the balance she maintains between her personal life and her superhero duties. She’s not just a favorite in comics but also shines in animated features and has a solid fanbase.

What’s interesting is how Sony is prioritizing its projects. Many of us are scratching our heads wondering why ‘Madame Web’ came before a standalone Spider-Gwen film, especially considering Gwen’s popularity. She’s not only a key figure in her own right but also an integral part of the broader Spider-Verse narrative, often seen teaming up with Miles Morales.

As for the connections to other projects, it’s still up in the air whether this live-action take will tie into the rumored animated ‘Spider-Women’ movie Sony mentioned before. Either way, the move to focus on Spider-Gwen could be a smart play by Sony, aiming to capture the hearts of Spider-Verse fans once again with one of its most beloved characters.

While there’s a hint of caution, maybe due to past setbacks with SSU films, the choice to spotlight Spider-Gwen could indeed turn the tide for Sony. We’re here for it and can’t wait to see how it all unfolds.
