Gabourey Sidibe Or Rebel Wilson To Slip Into The Lycra?

Well probably neither. They’re both female though, right? Is one of them not white enough, or vice versa? Well, no. Then why not?

I can’t put my finger on it, but I wager the #MeToo movement is not serious enough to cast a plus-size actor in the famous red and blue lycra suit.

Sony Pictures is taking its Spider-Man universe into a new direction in this #MeToo moment where Wonder Woman will be joined, and then no doubt over-saturated, with even more female superheroes. The studio is working on an animated Spider-Women film that will focus on three generations of women with Spidey powers. Bek Smith will write the script.

Peni Parker

We’re led to believe that Peni Parker (yes really) can be played by any female, of any colour and of any size. Well, we at Film Goblin wager that is a lot of shit.

Amy Pascal and Avi Arad will produce, but it also sounds like Phil Lord and Chris Miller (sacked Solo dudes) will also have a say in this. Of course, there’s no release date yet, but we’ll update this with more information as it becomes available.
