Jackpot movie

Jackpot movie
In August 2018 Sony announced Jackpot movie is in development. Jackpot first appeared in the Free Comic Book Day Spiderman: Swing Shift (May 2007) (see above picture) published by Marvel Comics written by Dan Slott and drawn by Phil Jimenez.
Jackpot is made up of two fictional superheroes, Sara Ehret  and Alana Jacobson. Sara is the original Jackpot. She achieved her superpowers by accidental being exposed to a virus. The virus changed her DNA. She became part of a super-team afterward. However she wanted to go back to a normal life.
Alana Jacobson recognized Sara and offered to buy her identity and license. Sara accepted. Alana got her superhuman strength by drugs. Alana fought alongside Spider-man in many battles. In 2010 Jackpot had her own mini-series.
It will be interesting if Sony will have two Jackpots like the comic book version or just one. So many of Jackpot stories were tied in with Spider-man. Also will be interesting if Sony don’t have Spider-man in the movie either.
Spiderman: Swing Shift was sold on ebay for $35.99 plus shipping on August 9. There are only very few listed on ebay.
