Teenage girls acquire the ability to electrocute in The Power trailer

In the first trailer for The Power, all teenage girls suddenly develop the ability to electrocute people. With their newfound abilities to generate electricity at their fingertips, these women eventually learn to harness and control their power, using it to their advantage.

As more girls gain these special powers, they start to awaken them in older women. This shifts the power dynamic in the world as females spark a revolution from London to Seattle and Nigeria to Eastern Europe. Based on Naomi Alderman’s 2016 novel of the same name, The Power is a global sci-fi adventure that shows a world where women become the dominant sex as the matriarchy takes over.

5 things we want to see in Amazon’s Spider-Man Noir series
Spider-Man Noir in "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse."

Variety has revealed that Sony is now producing a live-action series about Spider-Man Noir exclusively for Amazon Prime Video. The series will reportedly "follow an older, grizzled superhero in 1930s New York City" and be set in its own universe, but Peter Parker will not be the main character. This show will feature Spider-Man Noir's first appearance in live-action, which follows the character's big-screen debut in the animated film, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

In case everyone's not up to speed, the Spider-Man Noir comics follow a variant of Peter Parker living in the 1930s, who gets bitten by a spider found inside a mystical artifact, gaining superpowers after having visions of a spider god. Watching the web-slinger fight crime in a Depression-era setting will make for a unique television event, to say the least. But if Sony wishes for this show and their cinematic universe as a whole to succeed, they need to deliver on a list of things that viewers want to see out of Spider-Man Noir.
