In May 2017, Sony announced plans for a new shared universe named "Sony's Marvel Universe", to feature Spider-Man-related properties beginning with Venom in October 2018. In August 2018, Sony was revealed to be developing a film featuring the character Jackpot, and were actively looking for a writer for the project. Discussion of the film noted that the character is an older woman, likely to be portrayed as being in her mid-forties, which is rare for the youth-focused superhero genre; Sony wanted to promote diversity among the lead characters of its MU.
