The Spider-Man franchise is going to look a little different. It is being reported that a film featuring women as the superhero is in the works.

According to The Daily Wire:

Look out, here comes the Spider-Woman. She spins a web any size and catches thieves just like guys.

Indeed, Sony Pictures will be putting some girl-power into the Spider-Man franchise by giving audiences an animated "Spider-Women" film that will focus on "three generations of women with Spidey powers," reports Deadline in a new exclusive.

Phil Lord & Christopher Miller (directors of "The Lego Movie") will be on board in some capacity along with Amy Pascal, who previously produced "Spider-Man: Homecoming."

"One of these characters could very well be Spider-Gwen, a breakout character from the Spider-Verse," reports Deadline. "This all builds on the buzz preceding the animated 'Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.'"

The comics have featured a woman character before, so this will be nothing new for Marvel fans. The character was created to apparently stop another company from doing a spin-off with a female character.
