It is yet clear which superhero will front the new project but the studio has hired a female scribe to pen the script.

Marvel is not the only studio that sees the potential of a female-led superhero movie. Sony has hired Lisa Joy to pen a script for a female-driven superhero film that takes place in the Spider-Man universe.

It is yet known which character will be in the center of the new project, which has been described as co-chairman Amy Pascal's passion. However, speculations are surrounding Silver Sabler, Black Cat and Spider-Woman. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are already attached to produce the film.

Sony recently pushed back "" by two years to 2018 and set "" for 2016. It is presumed that the female superhero movie would be placed in between them.

The popularity of female-led films is rising, proven from the recent victory of "" over "" on the domestic box office. Marvel announced last month that Thor was reintroduced as a female superhero and there's a rumor to give Black Widow a stand-alone movie.
