We're right in the middle of a giant wave of superhero movies, with four studios vying for box office dollars. One of the biggest complaints in this trend thus far, is the apparent lack of leading ladies. The two biggest contenders, Marvel and DC, have failed to produce any non-white male solo characters, but now the race is on.

Deadline is announcing that Sony has hired Lisa Joy Nolan, writer of Burn Notice, to pen a solo film for a female hero from their Amazing Spider-Man franchise to be released in 2017. The most-likely candidate, as she appeared briefly in Amazing Spider-Man 2, is Felicity Jones as Black Cat.

This news comes on the heels of Marvel head, Kevin Fiege, hoping that their first female driven superhero picture (hopefully Captain Marvel) will "come sooner rather than later", and DC's announcement that a solo Wonder Woman film is also scheduled for 2017.

2017 better prepare itself, it's shaping up to be the summer of super heroines.
