SPIDER-WOMAN Rumored To Take Place In The MCU As Part Of Marvel Studios' Deal With Sony Pictures

SPIDER-WOMAN Rumored To Take Place In The MCU As Part Of Marvel Studios' Deal With Sony Pictures

An interesting new rumour has started doing the rounds today about Sony Pictures' Spider-Woman plans, with the suggestion being that Jessica Drew's origin could play out in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Excitement is rapidly building for Spider-Man: No Way Home, but many fans continue to question what comes next for the wall-crawler. It's beginning to look like Venom will join him in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, while it's no secret Sony is keen to start using Peter Parker in their Marvel movies. 

A Spider-Woman project is in development with Olivia Wilde set to direct, but a new rumour suggests that Jessica Drew could join Peter as part of the MCU. 

It's said that "[for] at least the first film, Spider-Woman may follow the same line as Spider-Man in the MCU, being under the Marvel Studios label in association with Sony Pictures, in an attempt to have her more at home around the universe." This comes from a Twitter user known as @mainmiddleman who has been sharing what appears to be relatively reliable intel in recent months. 

Needless to say, it's best to take this with a pinch of salt for now, but Spider-Woman would be right at home in the MCU. Jessica has lots of history with the Avengers, S.H.I.E.L.D., and even the Skrulls, so there are any number of ways she could be used by Marvel Studios in Phase 4 and beyond. 

We'll have to wait and see, but more collaboration between Marvel Studios and Sony would be no bad thing, especially if it leads to an even greater variety of character interactions on screen. After all, who wouldn't want to see Spider-Man teaming up with Spider-Woman or battling Venom?

Spider-Man: No Way Home swings exclusively into theaters on December 17.
