Sony stable has Black Cat, Silver Sable and Spider-Woman but it is not clear who among these three will get a more prominent role to play.

The studio pushed the release of the third Spider-Man by two years after the second part failed to perform as per the expectations.

Sinister Six, which focuses on the villains of the Spider-Man universe, will instead release on November 11, 2016 with Drew Goddard set to direct.
