It’s an awesome time at the movies right now. Since studios are churning out female-centric blockbusters and critical darlings left and right, “feminist” spinoffs of big franchises and titles are also becoming a thing. Here are some of the most buzzed future films that have girl power written all over them!


Sony is not bothered by the split from Marvel at all. In fact, it’s already gearing up for a shared cinematic universe of its own, especially since “Venom” and “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse” did well financially.

“Spider-Man was fine before the event movies, did better with the event movies, and now that we have our own universe, he will play off the other characters as well,” Sony Pictures CEO Tony Vinciquerra said.

One of Sony’s exciting plans is a “Spider-Women” animated film. Not much details have been revealed yet, but rumors have been circling that it will tell the story of a family with “three generations of web-slinging women.” A popular guess is that one of the women is Gwen Stacy, or “Spider-Gwen,” who herself is rumored to be getting her own movie.


Excitement is growing around this “101 Dalmatians” spinoff, which centers on a young Cruella de Vil before she became full-on cruel toward the furbabies. A Christmas 2020 was originally planned, but the release date has now been pushed to May 28, 2021, for unknown reasons.

Still, Disney fans already got a sneak peek of Emma Stone as the titular character. The “live-action prequel film” will be set in the 1980s and imbibes a “punk vibe,” as evidenced by the photo. Wait, where’s the fur coat?

“Fast & Furious Presents: Letty”

After Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham got their turn at the driver’s seat with their own “Hobbs & Shaw,” Dom’s wife, Letty Ortiz, is also taking the lead with her “Letty” installment. Vin Diesel already announced it on his Instagram and sent his kudos to screenwriters Nicole Perlman, Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet, which could only mean that they’re very much on board.

Here’s hoping that some of the series’ main girls, such as Eva Mendes and Gal Gadot, get to ride with Letty.
