Spider-Woman Movie...

In the event, that there's ever a Spider-Woman/(Girl) movie, which Spider-Woman(/Girl) do you think they should use? Jessica? Jennifer? Mattie? Ultimate Jessica? Mayday? Anya?

Anyone know who's got the movie rights to the female spiders? I'm speculating that it's Sony (as they are spin-offs of Spider-Man). If that's the case, mainstream Jessica would be off the table (due to her origin involves High Evolutionary and Hydra). If it's Marvel, Ultimate Jessica and Mayday are off the table, as they're Spider-Man's clone and daughter (i.e. you have to have Peter appear or at least be referenced).

@sky-pirate: I'm not sure if Sony own the rights to Spider-woman but having said that even if they didn't i'm not sure Marvel would make a Spider-Woman movie simply because of the fact it would confuse viewers.

I mean it could be done. Spider-man didn't have a very heavy influence on her. I think the only thing he did was convince her to use her powers for good which I guess is a rather big turning point but they could rewrite that part. I would quite like a Spider-Woman movie (mainly because its an excuse to bring Taskmaster into the Marvel cinematic-verse! Hellz Yeah! Taskmaster woooooooo!) but I think due to Spider-man the chances of a Spider-Woman movie are very low.

but if they made one it should be Jessica. Although I could get on board with Julia Carpenter as well.

Wouldn't mind a Spider-Woman movie, but yes. It should be Jessica Drew.

Perhaps in a future Avengers installment? If Sony doesn't own the S-W cinematic rights ....

Just as long as who ever plays her is stacked.

I've just given this some thought, and these are them:

  • Jessica Drew, portrayed by Jennifer Connelly works for S.H.I.E.L.D.
  • In the S.H.I.E.L.D. movie, she infiltrates modern day HYDRA
  • powers could actually be handwaved. She got them due to her father altering her at a genetic level with radiation yadda yadda yadda, it's quite simple to glaze over.
  • Her codename should be Arachne, because A) No-one would take her seriously with the name Spider-Woman and would dismiss her instantly as a Spider-Man knock-off, and B) Because everyone would get uber pissed that since Spider-Man belongs to Sony, Marvel Studios would just be throwing Spider-Woman out as a cheap substitute.

So, they're my thoughts!

I would not be supprised if they did make a Spider-Woman movie. I mean the Female heroes always get more movie then the guys. I mean example Devil May Cry has come out way before Bloodrayne and Bloodrayne already has 3 Movies under its belt. Not Fair : (

I don't think it would be a problem , the producers can modify her origin and mix itwith the other spiderwomen's origins. They always do that , for instance the Huntress and Black Canary from the BoP series, Batgirl from Batman and Robin movie, Tim Drake from Batman the animated series, amd so forth.

I would nominated Jennifer Connelly as Spiderwoman 20 years ago. I would prefer Kate Beckinsale or Michelle Monaghan as Jessica Drew/ Spiderwoman.

Do you really want Devil May Cry to have "movies" like BloodRayne?

I would love to see a Spider Woman movie but I think that the chance is low because she is not as popular as Spider Man.

A Spider-Woman movie with Jessica Drew definitely. Her origin and storyline would make the best script. You have a terrorist organizations, spies, double agents, supernatural and dark scientific experiments. It's a recipe for a Block Buster :) My pick for an actor would have to be British actresses Hayley Atwell (Captain America: The First Avenger) or Gemma Aterton (Prince of Persia). I've always pictured Jessica Drew with a British accent.

Jessica Drew would totally work following Captain America 2 and I can see this happening at last, set up at the end of avengers 2 and the lead villain / hero in captain America 3...fingers crossed
