When it was introduced that Sony and Disney mended ties and opted for a renewed deal to maintain Spider-Man within the MCU, followers breathed a sigh of aid on the great notion of Spidey remaining within the household. Now, a brand new potential deal between the 2 corporations has arisen, this time it’s about Spider-Lady. Within the newest episode of the Murphy’s Regulation Podcast, Charles Murphy shared that he heard about Kevin Feige‘s renewed curiosity in working with Sony to correctly deliver Jessica Drew aka Spider-Lady into the MCU, the identical means they did for Peter Parker. Take heed to the 42:50 mark.
The final that I heard, they have been a minimum of having conversations with Sony about attempting to make it a co-opt. I do know that Feige is a minimum of curious about making a Jessica Drew film with Sony
The rights to Jessica Drew are sophisticated and that’s placing it mildly. She has ties to the Excessive Evolutionary and HYDRA, properties which are owned by Disney. A retcon of her HYDRA origins rehashed it into one thing extra akin to how Peter Parker received his powers. The character discovered prominence within the comics because of her ties to the New Avengers and S.W.O.R.D.. Nonetheless, the moniker Spider-Lady is a reputation shared by a bunch of peripheral Spider-Man characters and subsequently is owned by Sony. However the Jessica Drew character alone, sans all of the spider references, makes it appear to be she’s a personality owned by Disney. In truth, Jessica Drew has extra connections to the bigger Marvel world than she does Spider-Man’s. And the truth that the character is lacking from the listing of the live-action solo Marvel movies Sony is growing for themselves makes the character’s possession suspect.
Backside line, the way in which the character’s rights are arrange and the way in which her story is informed within the comics makes it a perfect scenario for Marvel and Sony to collaborate. There may be the probability of getting Jessica Drew within the MCU down the road with out Sony’s assist, albeit a washed down model with out the connection to the Spider-verse. The identical could be stated if Sony does their very own Spider-Lady movie with out all the great Jessica Drew stuff.
