sony looks to cash in on interest in female superhero

It is being widely reported on the Internet that Sony Pictures is planning to bring a female superhero to the movie screen as early as 2017.  The story is the movie will be a spider-man spin-off which will inevitably lead to speculation as to who it could be.  I’m not a comic book nerd but the name I have seen is Black Cat although I suspect there are many other to choose from.  I’m open to suggestions.

There is definitely momentum behind such a move with the success of Lucy, the popularity of the Black Widow character, and he introduction of a female Thor in Marvel comics.  This isn’t the sort of thing I used to get too carried away about but I have become more conscious and the absence of a strong female character was really obvious in Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes.

One final question – will Sony use a female director?
