Finally, Spider-Woman will have an own movie.
According to Variety, Spider-Woman will soon get a solo movie of her own. The movie’s live-action or animated nature is not yet known, but producer Avi Arad promised that it would be released “sooner than you expect.” Additionally, it’s not immediately apparent if the movie will centre on Jessica Drew, Gwen Stacy, or another Spider-Woman character. “I can’t tell you yet, but it’s coming” Arad continued.
Olivia Wilde is rumoured to be directing a Spider-Woman movie that Sony Pictures has long considered creating after she agreed to oversee a female-led Marvel feature project in 2020.
Daisy Ridley from Star Wars has additionally previously indicated interest in portraying Spider-Woman in a motion picture. No casting or any announcements about the upcoming film have been announced as of yet.
One of the characters who will feature in Spider-woman: Across the Spider-Verse, which hits theatres on June 2, 2023, is Spider-Woman/Jessica Drew, a creation of Archie Goodwin, Sal Buscema, Jim Mooney, and Marie Severin. She made her initial appearance in 1976’s Marvel Spotlight #32.
Issa Rae provided the voice for the character, who will be pregnant in the movie. “A lot of work has gone into making that character look great,” co-writer and producer Phil Lord previously said of the character. “If you’ve ever been around Issa, she’s such a dynamo of talent and grace, so you just want to make the character look as cool as she is.”
The synopsis for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, which is a sequel to 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, reads, “After reuniting with Gwen Stacy, Brooklyn’s full-time, friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is catapulted across the Multiverse, where he encounters a team of Spider-People charged with protecting its very existence. However, when the heroes clash on how to handle a new threat, Miles finds himself pitted against the other Spiders. He must soon redefine what it means to be a hero so he can save the people he loves most.”
Spider-Woman has made appearances in a number of various video games and animated television series, including a self-titled show that aired for one season from 1979–1980 and featured the voices of Joan Van Ark in addition to Jessica and Gwen in the animated Spider-Verse movie.
The animated Iron Man series from 1994 featured a Julia Carpenter version of Spider-Woman, while DisneyXD’s Ultimate Spider-Man had a Mary Jane Watson version.
The new Spider-Woman film from Sony has not yet been given a release date.

Fans Declare the Best Films of the Past 25 Years – Is Your Favorite on the List?
Lights, camera, action! The film world is buzzing with excitement as fans have spoken up and voted for the best movies of the last 25 years. Review-aggregation superstar Rotten Tomatoes decided to celebrate its 25th anniversary by turning to you, the film-loving folks, to reveal the ultimate cinematic gems. And guess what? Director Christopher Nolan has snagged the top spots with his mind-bending creations.
The Dark Knight Takes the Crown
Drumroll, please! In the number one spot, we have Christopher Nolan’s iconic 2008 masterpiece, “The Dark Knight.” The caped crusader himself, Batman, swoops in to steal the show. But that’s not all, folks. Nolan’s cinematic magic doesn’t stop there. His 2014 space odyssey, “Interstellar,” and the mind-bending “Inception” from 2010 are hot on Batman’s heels.
Top 10 – greatest films of the last 25 years:
1. The Dark Knight
4. The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King
5. Avengers: Endgame
6. The Matrix
7. The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring
9. Everything Everywhere All At Once
10. The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers
Double Trouble with Peter Jackson
But wait, there’s more! The director Peter Jackson, known for his epic storytelling in “The Lord of the Rings” series, is notching up double appearances in the Top 10. He’s the mastermind behind two of the most beloved films on the list. It’s a journey to Middle-earth that fans can’t seem to get enough of.
While the Top 10 is filled with cinematic wonders, there are some honorable mentions just outside the limelight. Classics like “Saving Private Ryan” (1998) and the mind-bending “Fight Club” (1999) didn’t quite make the cut but are still held dear by movie buffs. Further down the list, you’ll find more gems like “Inglorious Basterds” (2009), “Gladiator” (2000), and the drumming sensation that is “Whiplash” (2014).
And That’s Not All…
But the movie magic doesn’t stop there! Earlier this year, NME, your trusty music and entertainment guide, dropped a list of the best films of the year so far. Among them are titles like “Asteroid City,” “Pearl,” “Rye Lane,” and “Tár.” Speaking of “Tár,” Todd Field’s film, NME had this to say: “Easily the year’s most sophisticated, daring drama, Field’s character study brought us one of Cate Blanchett’s greatest ever performances as mercurial conductor Lydia Tár.”
And the intrigue doesn’t end there. The film delves into the post-MeToo era, questioning Tár’s behavior with her students. The result? A movie that feels like you’ve taken a crash course at a conservatoire by the time the credits roll. It’s an out-of-this-world experience filled with utterly brilliant weirdness that’ll keep you glued to the screen.
A whirlwind tour of the best films of the past 25 years and some of the year’s cinematic treasures. Whether you’re a superhero fan, an epic fantasy enthusiast, or someone in search of the latest and greatest, the world of film has something extraordinary for everyone. Grab your popcorn and get ready for a movie night like no other!

21 Actors From The Harry Potter Films Who Are No Longer With Us
So many great actors from the series are no longer with us
Calling all fellow wizards and witches, it’s time to raise our wands and remember the magical stars who’ve left us from the Harry Potter universe. Since the very first Harry Potter movie graced our screens in 2001 with “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone,” we’ve laughed, cried, and cheered alongside a fantastic cast of characters. But, my friends, the bittersweet truth is that not all of them are still with us.
We’ve had to bid farewell to 21 talented actors who brought the wizarding world to life. From the mighty Professor Snape, played by the unforgettable Alan Rickman, to the wise Professor Dumbledore portrayed by the legendary Richard Harris. Even the gentle giant Hagrid, portrayed by Robbie Coltrane, has ventured into the great beyond.
But it’s not just the headlining heroes who have left us. The magic of Harry Potter extends to the supporting cast as well. Elizabeth Spriggs, who played the enchanting Fat Lady guarding Gryffindor Tower, and Verne Troyer, our beloved Griphook, have also passed away.
1) Richard Harris – Albus Dumbledore
Prior to Michael Gambon taking over for the remaining six Harry Potter films, Harris played the grandfatherly headmaster in the first two films and many fans were delighted with the casting as he looked as so many fans imagined!
2) Alan Rickman – Severus Snape
Fans of Harry Potter were very saddened by Severus Snape’s loss, but Alan Rickman’s death was by far a bigger shock. Tragically, the actor passed away in January 2016 after receiving a confidential diagnosis of terminal cancer.
3) Robert Knox – Marcus Belby
In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Knox, an English actor, played Marcus Belby. Tragically, Knox was fatally stabbed outside a London pub after getting involved in a fight to defend his brother.

Frank Bryce, a Muggle who lived in Little Hangleton, the same community which the Riddle family also called home, was portrayed by comic actor Eric Sykes. He worked as their gardener and eventually was the main suspect in the death of the family, but viewers will know he was innocent.
9) Richard Griffiths – (Uncle) Vernon Dursley
Richard Griffiths, a renowned British actor of theatre and cinema recognised for performances in The History Boys, Withnail and I, and Chariots of Fire, was the only person who could have brought Harry’s Uncle Vernon to life and fans loved to loathe him!
10) David Ryall – Elphias Doge
In the 2010 film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, Ryall took over Peter Cartwright’s role as Elphias Doge, a member of the Order of the Phoenix but sadly passed away, 2014’s Christmas Day.
11) Dave Legeno – Fenrir Greyback

17) Verne Troyer – Griphook
Verne Troyer played Mini Me in the Austin Powers movie, which is perhaps his most well-known role, but he also played Griphook in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone until Warwick Davies took over.
18) Helen McCrory – Narcissa Malfoy
Before her tragic passing in 2021, McCrory had amassed a large following because to her performances in films like Narcissa Malfoy in the Harry Potter series and Polly in Peaky Blinders.

21) Michael Gambon – Albus Dumbledore (2)
Sadly the news of Michael Gambon’s passing is so sudden and yet he contributed to 6 of the Harry Potter films after taking over from Richard Harris in which he showed a feistier side to the headmaster and fans came to love him. Not to mention his most famous quote ‘Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light’
As fans of the wizarding world, we’ll always cherish the enchanting moments these actors gifted us. Let’s hold onto those memories, rewatch the films, and keep their magic alive in our hearts. After all, “Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home,” as J.K. Rowling once said. And so will the enchanting performances of these dearly departed actors in the world of Harry Potter.
